A win is a win, but Ireland still have a lot of concerns to take out of this game . . .

As an aside, the Irish front row – particularly the props – has been a source of concern even before the last RWC. Is there any indication from the IRFU that this area is being given priority? Cian Healey looks like a talent but needs expert schooling in the “dark arts” – who will do this? Equally, is there a succession plan to replace Hayes?
Well let’s hope its stays that way!
Scary thing is that England could have won on Saturday. Stats regarding territory (England) and tackle count (Ireland) were incredible. England have the players but – luckily for us – a mind-numbingly unimaginative coach.
The English players are also incredibly stupid having been force fed the biff bash bosh of the Guinness Premiership most of their careers.
