Wolfhounds forget how to bite

It was a fairly toothless performance from the Wolfhounds in a dismal match this weekend. There were drops, knock-ons, turnovers at lineouts, turnovers at scrums, and somewhere in amongst all that mess, a little rugby was played too. And most of that was played by the Saxons, who once they got into the game, always looked threatening with ball in hand. Ireland didn’t seem to be able to finish anything they started, and the backline in particular engaged in endless intricate passing moves, that went absolutely nowhere.

It wasn’t all bad however, Felix Jones was really solid at the back, I thought Henderson played well, and Strauss is getting better and better. Good start too for Sean O’Brien who will only get sharper each game. Madigan struggled a bit, but he must surely feel sometimes like would you all ever feckin’ make your mind up where you want me to play? We didn’t really learn much from the match, bring on the real deal next weekend!
