Someone print out a still image of that Keenan grab above Daly/May. Beautiful.

Jack having a big game too, as is Robbie.

Hopefully we can keep it going and stop England making this an arm wrestle.

Raynal for once reffing in our favour. This must be what it feels like to be Welsh.

England could very easily come back into this if they just stop giving away penalties. The first few minutes looked ominous and if they get back to that we're in trouble

England miss Slade and Mallins. Both were excellent last week. Slade would have been my man of the match.

Henderson and Beirne having great games. Might be an unpopular opinion but I’d have both above Ryan for the Lions

I dunno, few debatable hits in the air too. Raynal could’ve been sorer in them. England has a few green shoots against France but this is abysmal.

I thought it was a good hit, Billy dipped and led forward with his head

Just mean Aki has to go lower. If he even knows the meaning of the word.

Anybody saying that a win here will just paper over the cracks etc can f%~k right off. It's beating England. We've been making them look better than they are. We've been beaten before we took to the field.
We need this.

Nah. We're down two men in the backline so he's covering two men. England get that wide and it's a guaranteed try.

while totally celebrating the victory, and absolutely loving every time we beat England (especially this version of them), I have no problem f%~king right off because this win is papering over the cracks

He got out to May though and put a hit on him, doesn’t matter how many men we had on the field

Plus was he not scrum half at that point.

At 24 years old I think he was great today and had a great tournament. The Ireland management stumbled on a full back and he has made the jersey his own.

My bolter for the Lions. Hogg will start the tests but he will travel in the squad.

He was covering two men and got a hand onto his leg as he went by.

Like it's Johnny May, not some AIL winger he's trying to tackle, as well as cover the guy inside.

It clearly does matter how many men are on the field when you've a massive overlap at every play. If you don't score with 15 on 13 and two backs off you probably shouldn't be playing test rugby.
