The pack were bad, tired and lacking cohesion, the back line were lacklustre, Hickey had a nightmare after being hit, Maybe he should have come off as soon as it happened. Captain Fantastic showed his lack of game time, about the only one that stood up was Denis Leamy, and that’s a relative term by the way…. Fair play to the Namibians, they took the chances they got and stood up for themselves. They deserved more even as the last Irish try wasn’t. Hopefully this one is just a blip on the screen and that we can step up and move into second gear, never mind the top gears we’ll need later.
If we don’t win all our games, tonight will come back to haunt us.
By the way as Bock said to me earlier, did anyone see O’ Gara???
