re-watching 2nd half.. the volume of missed tackles is incredible.

+1
A number of our players have tackling techniques which may have worked when they were physically equal to, or stronger, than their opponents but don't work against stronger runners. Notable in that regard were SO'B, Soroka & Max O'Reilly. They may need to go slightly lower with their inital "hit" (a la Will Connors). It's fixable but needs lots of practice and bravery at the outset.

I think they stream games on their youtube channel - at least that's what they used recently for a Connacht A V Munster A game.

Max at 13 stands out, you would imagine that if we saw him as primarily a 15 going forward as he’s played for the seniors he would be accommodated there to get game time and worked others around him.

Should of had the game Sunday to get 24th men done gametime

yep.. not many other options available I guess after they cut Hickey and injury to Moloney.

injuries at 2nd row see Soroka move up, to what could be his long term position.

interesting to see them bring Kiely back in after cutting him from the sub-academy, same with Rob Russell.

No sign of any of the tight head props that were at ireland 20s camp. Would have thought they'd give them a run out with 6 nations coming up. Loughnane too.

Same with Aaron Coleman I think he was dropped too.
