Atrocious 20 minutes from us.

Few lads need to wake up quickly.

Please don't start with this...
Someone mentioned the amount of club players in the team, so why can’t I mention the amount of Michael’s players? I’m just stating it because I thought it was an interesting fact that’s all.

This is shocking so far. 8 penalties conceded in the first 20 minutes I think. A rake of knock ons and a few unforced errors.

I think that’s only the second time we’ve had possession for more than a couple of phases. Absolutely tore them apart with the carrying. Hope we can hold onto the ball a bit better from this point on.

Well, we’ve been absolute dog shît and we’re winning with two tries scored. Not the worst I guess.

What the f%~k is with the stupid penalties? Two obvious ones by Kelleher missed there too and the pull back should have been a yellow.

Yeah the discipline has been outrageous. 13 penalties conceded in the first half so far, compared to 4 by Dragons I think.

We should have a man in the bin by now, not that I agree with half the penalties but Whitehouse thought they were penalties so we should not be allowed to continuously infringe and get away with it.

A lot of mediocre to poor play from us in the first half. Halfway to the bonus point though!

The really annoying thing is that we’re not exactly under the pump when we’re giving away those penalties, we look comfortable in defence.

I think Dooley has been unlucky with the scrum ones though.

Max O'Reilly having a good game. Has been put in a few difficult circumstances and dealt well.

Scrum is under pressure. Wouldn't mind seeing Big Dev on to shore it up a bit.

Sheehan would be a good impact sub too.

A couple of posters here constantly refer to their school's representation. It's tedious. For what its worth, I didn't go to a fee paying school. The christian brothers beat the sh1t out of me for free.

Good man yerself. A real man.

The team was picked yesterday. I didn’t and won’t say anything. Someone else did - but you need to make your classist remark anyway.

Enjoy the second half. Brutal so far.

We aren’t helping ourself. Harry’s kick-offs have been brutal but nothing as bad as Whitehouse’s influence on the match
