A few moments before the first try - looked clear & obvious to me.

Certainly as clear and obvious as Collins's knock on which should have been checked.

Inaccuracy in execution costing us a bit here. Still, entertaining game so far.

To b e a knock the ball must travel forwards this was always going backwards. More a fumble.

Nevermind if it went forward, Reinachs pass was the killer there, no?

Thought it went forward myself but will concede age is not doing my sight any favours! However, I’ve seen similar given.

Look real good again in open play and going forward. Defensively we are missing tackles and they’ve cut us wide open at times. Also when they are deadly within 5m of our line. Still 3 down at HT is pretty good.

Without watching ad infinitum replays, I thought it was a knock on relative to the player, but that the ball went backwards.

Someone remind me what constitutes a forward pass nowadays...?

Decent half there. Losing the battle up front but without first choice locks it's not a bad showing

Refs offside line seems to change for them and us....

Re: Knock On!!
ElySaint 07 December, 2019 14:10
Horrible start to second half. Defence seems to lose shape quite easily. Big hill to climb now.

Re: Knock On!!
Saint Kris 07 December, 2019 14:11
Two tries conceded in seven minutes - looks like a long way back now ...

Defensive organisation none existent. Need to get Dicken's replacement in as soon as possible.

Re: Knock On!!
ElySaint 07 December, 2019 14:12
Butchered that opportunity.

How did we not score?

I'm not sure Dickens would have had an answer to leinsters attack. It's with pace off good ball, support runners on every break. Inaccuracy stopping us coming back into this

We are so nearly there but where Leinster make no mistakes, we do. It’s great to watch and proud of the team. I think this level is one step too far this year.

Re: Knock On!!
Saint Kris 07 December, 2019 14:36
I guess the good thing is the team are generally playing well in attack but we’re just being let down by inaccuracies at the last moment.

More the ruck defense and defensive reorganisation after line breaks where were struggling. We always struggle with goal line defense but that's tactics with Boyd as we tend to score more tries than the opposition.

Proctor is class.

Re: Knock On!!

I live in hope that we’ll do better next week.

As was mentioned before kick-off, today's game would be a measure of where Saints are currently. Heavy scoreline in the end, but we're very much still a work in progress, and lots of room for improvement.

Always going to be tough against a side like Leinster put out today, just hope the confidence remains in camp and mood is buoyant going into next week and beyond.
