    Rettalick and Whitelock worth their weight in gold, BB involved in all tries, tackled and kicked his conversions. Just the one awful brain freeze not grounding the ball immediately.



  • Easy this week, the locks and BB.



  • retallick, easily best. then barrett, then dagg. whitelock was good but faded. squire was good too.



  • thought Whitelock was the most dominant tackler in that match, he made so many tackles where he stopped the runners in their tracks and then pushed them backwards, just great to watch.



  • Two were easy but the 3rd - Whitelock, Dagg?

    So I gave it to Bender for his half-back cameo



  • i dunno.. if ppl raged about saveas drop going backwards, im surprised they weren't the same of daggs poor attempt at going backwards as well and missing the ball..

    for the 3rd i went with ardie..



  • Someone said Whitelock got tired out about 3/4s in. I didn't notice that, I did notice his industry but in that game BBBR wasn't just man-beast he was sometimes also a concrete wall. I got the impression the Irish were running angles away from him near the end of the game..



  • I went for Dagg as my third pick. He seems to be playing a very mature game of picking the right moment to get involved and either add an option or take some pressure off. His play has been quite impressive.



  • Beaudy 1st for me, major part of all three tries, two try saving tackles, especially the one on one tackle in second half was huge, nailed 3/3

    BBBR next, massive hits and hit ups
    Ardie third, I was at the ground and he was in everything defensively, didn't see Sam Whitelock as active as Ardie

    Worst 3

    Aza Smith although perhaps unlucky to be carded maybe the ball was out?
    J Savea
    Maybe Fekitoa, think he should have been red-carded and whilst his defence is v good, he is like a headless chook on attack by and large, hard marking for a guy who scored two tries.

    Ok so there were 2 sets of Irish commentators, because the guys in that clip even with that small sample were streets ahead of the twats I listened to on BeIn channel.

    Another ref may have red carded Feki, but also yellow carded and possible penalty try the defender who knocked down that pass.
