That game was a lot of what I feared a Farrell team would look like - England lite imo. Demented mole have gone in hard on the 'heads up rugby' meme that has pushed by the coaching ticket - its not enough at this level. Ironically the set piece was improved on previous weeks, almost certainly due to Toner being back in the pack. One thing in Farrell's favour for me is that this feels a lot like the Matt O'Connor season (seasons?) at leinster, when the narrative was all about Joe's shackles were off but the players obviously had a massive hangover as a result. However, it took a change of coaching ticket and a couple of years to right that ship.

If you like at the game and not the result Ireland did ok

We gave them 14 points through un forced errors.
Take that out of it and plus the 2 missed kicks.
We did ok and the stats back it up.

England were off side all day, off their feet when they got a scrum for an uncontesteable ball.
Bundee got penalised for doing the correct thing.
We got one or 2 decision as well. Ref and linesmen was very poor.


Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
