Cpl of mistakes but a good start
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

Sexton is killing me slowly with those misses. Aki is the man!

Farrell been really good. Sexton also apart from two very poor place kicks.

Oh and Earls. Makes a mockery of his non-selection for the Lions.

You mean a win!
That was a try for them at the other end if he missed the intercept.

But he didn’t miss.
The bookies were right; how could we doubt them...

Porter was excellent.
Huge plus to have him to back up Tadhg. I don't think you'd have to stretch too far to make a claim that our (Leinster's) prop options are the best in the world.

Probably...
THP- Furlong, Porter, Bent
LHP- Healy/ McGrath, Dooley/ Ed Byrne

Can’t be many teams with such a seamless line of talent in the squad alone; tapering down, of course- but very gradually

Tasty team even we have better. Tasty win. Should have been more but Sexton had a bad day.

Sexton may have had a bad day off the tee but he was superb in open play and absolutely central to everything good the team did. Still not convinced by Aki, seems to operate independently rather than part of the team and the midfield alignment didn't look great.

Excellent stuff from Earls yet again. Ryan maybe MOTM, he was immense.

I agree on Aki. Feels like heaven playing a different game to the rest of the side at times. He’s effective at what he does well, but like Stockdale, is prone to stupid errors that could cost us at this level.

Thought RK was poor today too.

Yes he looked quite out of sorts at times, and the drop goal attempt was...amusing. Ferg's cameo wasn't too impressive either.
