Steely from Ireland, going for the corner and making it count.

We're actually competitive in Ireland, this is fun.

England's defensive line is impressive.

England are all over us. Knew it'd be physical but Ireland need to change something - they're targeting Henshaw and I think it's working

I thought about high balls just behind the defense, there seems to be room and it could reduce their aggression.

England much the better side in the first half, they've made use of Henshaw's uncertainty and have also had the better of it up front. Ireland wear teams down by going through phases and in recent years have had the edge on England at the breakdown but they've been clearly on top in that area so far.

Horgan pointed it out very well - for everything Ireland planned for during the week, they're not actually reading the field and trying to find weaknesses as they play.
Our secondary is what will cost us this game if it stays the same.

It looks like the Ireland plan was to try to target May, but he's doing well against the high ball at the moment.
