Hello, is there anyone at home or have you all been struck down by the dreaded lurgy?

They're trembling in fear at the thought of facing the might that is Wales.

Love it!

Mind you, listening to Irish pundits, all Farrell’s boys have to do is turn up and stroll onto the pitch to win the game.

We’ll see.

Sadly,the Irish board here is dead. I remember the old days when the banter before a game like this was intense.
Anyway, you do know that :

Halfpenny can catch the ball but never takes it anywhere.
A W Jones has one foot in the grave.
Lydiate was briefly worried last week when he thought he'd lost his pension book.
The biggest thing about Biggar is his belly.
George North has gone south.
T. Faletau still does not know what to call himself.
Tipuric thinks he's on the bench and may miss the kick off.

May the best team win as long as it's us.

True, where've they all gone?
Shrewd observations, Spiff, but your boys are blowing hot and cold, and Sexton & Murray - over the hill and far away now.

As an aside - I wonder if Farrell was on the blower last night to his boy - starting to wind him up before the match on March 20th - assuming his boy will be there!

Exciting game, though quite sloppy at times by both sides. POM's brain fart is unforgivable and quite likely cost Ireland the game. Ruined the match as an even contest but Ireland still could have nicked it with a little tighter play.

Felt sorry for Burns at the end. Even though it’s not exactly a great Welsh side, it would have been a famous win, away from home and down to 14 men for over an hour.

Pob lwc for the rest of the tournament.
