With the number of penalties given to Ireland, it's unbelievable they didn't nearly out-score us just on 3 pointers. They have the kickers for it!
I guess, happily most teams aren't interested in winning by 3 pointers any more.
But by my reckoning Sexton (primary kicker at that stage) should have been in the bin for his head high tackle of Barrett. Was that the 12th incident they speak of? Or are only the ABs "thugs"? I saw at least two other obvious neck rolls by the Irish players. The kind that were yellow carded in the Super Rugby competition.
