Cracking game really impressed by several players. Webb edged Murray but what a difference Sexton makes. Best unlikely to make Lions at this rate , Stander and Sean OB less influential. Warburton excellent and good to see Welsh backs firing

Set up for tomorrow- Come on England

Warburton was immense, not sure how Webb got MOTM. Halfpenny was a bit better, but still way down on any Lions form.

I thought Stander was easily the best of Irish forwards, he seemed to be doing the work of 2 as O'Brien was pretty anonymous.

Poor play from Henshaw. Barnes had no option as it was bang in front of him...

Great game. Really enjoyed it and was especially delighted to see George North Firing again. Yeah! for sure Best had a poor game but I would still have him as the Lions test hooker, after all, a week ago North didn't look like he'd make the plane, now he looks nailed on to start.

I personally think that Irelands hit and miss form is down to Joe Schmidt. Comprehensively out thought yesterday. And surely the brightest young coach around is Alex King..... The set plays the Welsh girls are coming up with these days are breathtaking.

British and Irish rugby looks to be in rude health coming into the NZ tour. Dare I say it? maybe the best chance ever to get one over the AB's

It was a great game to watch and probably the best game so far in the tournament.

I thought Sean O Brien and CJ Stander (apart from his bulldozing run in the first half) were fairly anonymous for much of the game, this in part is probably down to the work that Tipuric and Warburton were doing.

I don't think Best is the nailed on Lions captain as he seemed a bit lost when Wales got ahead. I personally thought North was worthy of a man of the match and answered his critics with two well taken tries and much better defence.

I think everything is still up for grabs in terms of Lions selections and here's hoping to a complete England performance today against Scotland and hopefully another Championship!

I agree Barnes made a good call…

Huge game in Dublin I imagine the hosts will be licking their lips at the prospect of p1ssing on the champions' grand-slam/record-breaking parade…

One last query about Friday - why did the Irish agree to the roof being closed?
