4 hookers in the club and not one can throw a lineout ball and have any confidence that we will win it.
Otherwise not bad at all. Some great debuts and we really do have good players coming through. It's the older ones where the problem lies.
Ringrose on the wing is just a waste of talent and a stupid idea which needs to be dropped at once. It's not like we have bag load of centres.
Mare. Not the worst, but mare

Great start to the season with a win okay handling wasn't good at times and really no excuse for that but look Carbery McGrath looked good Healy McCartney came true and we got a look at Gibson Park over all we did okay

Great we win but still disappointing
Sooooo close!! #LEIvBEN— Irish Biltong Co. (@Irishbiltong) September 2, 2016
First game out of the blocks wasn't a bad start at all.
Carbery- a star is born. Great running 10, fabulous vision. Reid and Ringrose look like a great centre partnership.
Healy and Rob look fit, not sure RK still has that magic though.
Lineout wasn't great.
Season started with a win, although we left the bonus point behind.

Leavy, Carberry, Ringrose - otherwise we appeared to be a little headless. Can you imagine that performance against say Glasgow,Scarletts or Connacht?
@HarpinOnRugby decent debut for Carberry one of my ones to watch!!! He was far from flawless but the raw talent was very evident.

The maul for Tracy's was the best one we've managed in a long time. Our line were poor though and need improvement.

Close but no cigar at the end, but more importantly, no 5th point either. Positives were there but disappointment was too. #COYBIB— Harpin' On Rugby (@HarpinOnRugby) September 2, 2016
