Ireland stay on track with victory over England in Dublin

Ireland totally deserved the win, they out-classed us tactically and on the pitch. Their work at the breakdown was good, if not excellent, but England totally lacked teeth in that department. We're missing Launchbury massively. Atwood and Cruiz just didn't look the part.

The Irish do love their high ball and it worked for them, although I think they'd need to tighten up their kicking if they are going to use that tactic against the southern hemisphere teams.

I thought England's pack was very weak and gave the backs nothing much to play with. I understand that the England backline looked unimpressive but they had very little ball to get going with. Our forwards cost us a shot at the game.

Lastly, and frustratingly, once again stupid penalties hurt us. We looked rattled early on and apart from one section of the game we looked out-classed.

So well played Ireland, good luck for the rest of the tournament.

Guy, unlike your wife, we are pleased that you've pulled out before this reached a messy conclusion.

Absolutely, the punishment of a red card is surely because you are too much of a liability to remain on the field. I agree entirely.

Hi Oliver, have you set up an account? It might help if you do. Come and join the fun! I've enjoyed your comments, you should be permanent.

I will take your apology into account, plus the fact that you write in superb English and I can only wish that my French was as good. Bravo, mon amis, bravo.

I don't think it's worth basing a comment on a thread at RD, the holy of holies, on something someone commented on another article on another website.

There is newer thread on RD at the moment where a child from NZ has set up an account called PhillNZ and is having a smashing time before his parents get home. We can ignore these comments and move on.

Does Franks have Stelzners' family tied up in a garage somewhere? How can he possibly rule that there Franks was "careless" and that there was "no malice intended"?
