Yeh the hands through midfield are too slow to take the chances - the second try came despite a poor pass. Pack going well.

Have to say think that English ref in the Wales-Ireland women's game has been excellent. Maybe she could give some lessons to. mr Barnes :D

I reckon she could play anywhere except second row. Halfback would be a stretch and a bit of a waste but she could probably manage that too.

Don't like him but credit where credit it's due nice touch by our President to give the girls their due for their GS decider with England - A real mark of respect to and appreciated by both teams.
C'mon Ireland.

Looks a full house.....
Ruddock's tackle stats consistently too low for me to be taken seriously as a Six Nations blindside..... Ruddock's defensive stats don't stack up. - All Blacks Nil, Jan 15th, 2014

Great to see the nobody interested in this / no crowds getting so into it at a packed Donnybrook.

Two unforced errors in 30 seconds gives England field position and ultimately another try, very frustrating.

Women, men, U20's - the failure to finish off the chances we create is infuriating

Stapleton puts the lid on a poor personal performance I'm afraid

Yeah but the coaches won and lost this, kind of.
I don't know if we had another option for Stapleton but the English coach put his 12 into OH for the second half.
Ballsy but great to see a coach prepared to back himself.
Tierney may not have had that option but if he had would he have made such a brave call - who knows?
TBF 7-34 was a very unfair reflection of the game.

Great to be in a packed Donnybrook tonight for the Women, score didn't reflect the effort but best team won. And nice to see Michael D there, showing respect for the team which a poster in another thread certainly didn't!

Irelands ball handling skills need a major improvement, MAJOR! The English Women were way superior in this aspect of the game. The scrum dominance of the Irish shocked the English fans that I was talking to. Losing Molloy was a big blow, at the wrong time.
