Il a le cheveux soyeux. Quel est donc son secret ?

Je comprends pas comment ils arrivent à garder leur intégrité physique. Un truc comme ça normalement, t'as le haut du corps qui est séparé du reste.

Il se fait retourner proprement l'Irlandais.

Last match of the this weekend is visiting

Last year was no walkover, with Italy scoring 20 to Ireland's 34.

Anthems are done, some wee lad just belted out Ireland's Call and we are ready to kick off.

@rugby something the kickers know that we don't weather wise, but Crowley misses the conversion.

@rugby Italy knock-on, Ireland kick to touch, one yard out from the try line. Ireland's maul fails as Italy force an error and Ireland are penalised. Good defense from the

@rugby first scrum is blue put-in. Italy get a free kick but fail to find touch. Still, good Italy pressure.

@rugby Italy are clearly capable of moving the ball around, but not quite got the finishing touches to turn it into points.

Good to see the confidence, need some fine detail in the margins.

@rugby some beautiful hand-offs in contact and Ireland create an overlap seemingly out of nothing, second try. Lovely to watch, flowing and well supported.

@rugby can we puhlease get some protection on these box kicks?

@jaz@toot.wales avatar

@rugby agh, Italy really trying to counter-ruck but time after time a little knock-on and it's all for naught.

@rugby Ireland forego a kickable penalty and head for the corner instead. Clean lineout, dominant maul, third try on the board for Ireland. Italy have had plenty of possession and have put some decent pressure on here and there, but no points to show for it at all.

@rugby

Half time.

Ireland jogs off, Italy walking.

Pretty much sums up the half.

jaz,
@jaz@toot.wales avatar

@rugby Second half underway, I hope Italy have some responses up their sleeve. We have to get past foregone conclusions at this level of tournament.

Solid scrum from Italy there.

@rugby Henshaw throws a ball with some airbender time warp corkscrew skills. Looks forward but seems to change direction mid flight.

@rugby

Bonus point try for Ireland from a textbook maul breakaway.

24 unanswered points.

@rugby

Italy pull a rabbit out of the hat holding Sheehan up at the line.

@rugby

Forward pass?

@rugby
Apparently not.

TMO reviewing something.

@rugby

Really impressive defense fro Italy today, no question.

I think every sub available just came on.

@rugby
Yeuch, Menoncello gets a yellow for tripping. Italy down to 14 and still no points on the board.

jaz,
@jaz@toot.wales avatar

@rugby

Oof. Capuozzo gets hit so hard I feel it myself.

jaz,
@jaz@toot.wales avatar

@rugby

Well.

Um.

Ho hum.

Certainly expected one of the best teams on the planet to win today, but seeing a zero on the score board just doesn't sit well.

Two weeks to wash this taste out, next match is Feb 25, Ireland v Wales - should be a highly entertaining match up.
