Leonardo Ghiraldini in trouble after making contact with Cian Healy's eyes

Healy has probably been the best front row of the WC (not many are awarded MOM awards as he was v Aus) and from the evidence of this game where he was clearly targeted all game, has lost his hot headedness. He was in the thick of it and bar this counter action kept his composure. Wasn't a fan of him up until the last few months but he's looking at 100+ cpas at this stage.

On the Bowe non try, while I missed Kaplan's question to the TMO, it doesn't matter if foul was outside the in goal area, if it was in the act of scoring, then its obstruction. The act of scoring does often take place outside the try line. In fact, Bowe was on the other end of this in Nov 08 against NZ, when he tapped the ball out of McCaw's way going over the try line. Bowe was yellow carded and a Pen try was given to NZ.

Rugby World Cup Daily - Ireland upset the Wallabies

I've stood next to the man and I'm 186 and 91kg and I lorded it over him. Team stats are always misleading claiming players are bigger than reality, check ROG's if you don't believe me (6ft my hairy....). I've had the opportunity of being at functions (ok, 1 function, jeez do you want blood aswell) with Munster players and can tell you for a fact that their stats are wrong, eg, they give David Wallace variously as 6'1 to 6'3, when I am clearly taller than him (I was on an airport shuttle bus with him after last world cup in Dublin haha).

Ironically, Stringer did seem bigger than the 5'7 they list him as.

Whether posters here believe me or not doesn't bother me, still a god try saving tackle.

McCabe
Weight: 92 kg
Height: 186 cm

Earls
Weight: 90 kg
Height: 180 cm

While I did think McCabe was bigger, I can tell you 100% Keith Earls isn't either 90kgs or 180cm. More like 85kgs max and 175cm (he is not 5'10 (180) in any language). So, I think I'll stand by my reasoning

Don't get all the Earls bashing. He made 1 error in the whole game right at the start and none after, including a great hit on a much bigger player (McCabe) stopping a certain try. O'Driscoll fell off at least 2 tackles that could've led to alot more damage only for the other backs to cover him (if he is injured then he's taking a real gamble and SA, Ita and others will target his injury), yet no one comments, as I've pointed out before, clear double standards. Thought Reddan was poor again overall, a couple of poor passes and decisions, but performs better with Sexton. Huge games from front row and pack led by O'Connell, Ferris and Healy. Healy has turned into a world class prop and is looking at 100+ caps easily.

In a bar and with no replay (or maybe I was down on my knees at that moment) don't know why Muarry's try was disallowed. Could someone clear it up for me.

Start Sexton and Reddan v Russia and rest the majority of the others. Cronin, Ryan, McFadden et al need match time

This makes it much easier living in Aussieland now.
