In keeping with the weather, Murray and Sexton are going to have howlers today. Specifically expect intercepts not to mention some atrocious passing.
A day for Rob Kearney at FB perhaps, however Larmour will be tested but at least he's shown he has the ability to deal with the high ball, today could be at a different level though.
The Welsh BR aided and abetted by their HBs will see us off today, Sexton and Murray just won't be able to handle the pressure.
Expect a breaking game from their SH too which is going to be difficult for our BR to deal with.

I see you're sticking with the stopped clock method.

Whether the clock is stopped or not, I'm not at all confident about our chances today.

Since when was swimming up the side of a maul and side entry legal? Only reason the maul split was because of a side entry

The TMO looking at the last two passes for the Welsh try, it was the one before to AWJ that was forward. Gits.

Poor enough return for the dominance. Some strange calls from Poite. Wales look dangerous so we might need more tries in the second half.

How on earth was that knock on called against Herring from the Welsh lineout? It clearly went forward off Alun Wyn’s hand. Add that to the forward pass for Wales’ try. How can they make such blatant errors?

Anyway, our maul has been poor, and our scrum hasnt been solid either. Our props our better than their’s. It really should be a weapon for us. I dont see any way we win this without big improvement in those areas

+1
Wales are kind of floating the ball around near the breakdown just waiting for one of their players to take it on the burst. They look like they might get through every time.

At least the performance so far is better than last week - showing more aggression but need to execute better.
Good half from Robbie.

Murray's box kicking is going to hurt us in the second half. It's going to give Wales opportunities to counter attack, something they're good at.

Yes - especially down the throat of Halfpenny. We have looked dangerous spreading it out wide.

Clear binding on the arm all 3 times. Should have had the penalty from the first scrum.

If another scrum half had played as well as Murray did today, the hospitals of Dublin would be full of people who had masturbated themselves into a coma because of it
