Have to agree, I'd say the amount of respect can only increase with games like the one on Sunday...as gutted as I am.
Nice to see the old niggly shite is quietly dying out.

you're forgetting that although the kick was attempted by BoD he wasn't the only one following it up!

not so sure at how random it was, that English back 3 are a tough group to kick to and they cover the pitch expertly, what would normally be a decent clearing kick can quickly become a counter attack.
Ireland had more possession and territory over the game but englands metres gained with the ball in hand was quite impressive.
Would have liked to see Redden in there for the last 20minutes all the same, he's tidier with the ball in hand and can generally get the momentum going.

well looking at it you'd be forgiven for thinking that he could have pulled out but opted to dig the shoulder in. Let's say a card wouldn't have been surprising and given the stakes involved it wasn't exactly a clever option.

British and Irish ;)
The Triple Crown is the old version of the Grand Slam from the days when the 6 nations was called the home nations, France have nothing to do with it.

I'm gutted as an Irishman for the loss but it was a great match by both sides. Launchbury was immense in defence but that "save" that Brown made from O'Driscolls kick on the fly along with his excellent line break to set up Care was possibly the difference between the sides. BoD's skill in kicking the ball on the fly would normally have been enough and there was nobody home behind, how Brown got down in time, held the ball and regained his feet is beyond me!
I agree Farrell should have been carded but as a rugby fan I can't say I'm sorry the result didn't come down to a refereeing decision, even if we did lose.
I'd England with clinch the Triple crown but Ireland's points difference should carry them through if they can manage France in Paris!
