France were good value for the win. Dulin, Fickou, Jalibert and Dupont all excellent.— Patrick Logan 💙 (@paddylogan13) February 14, 2021
Held this French team to 15 points. Huge positive.— The Charge Down (@charge_down) February 14, 2021
Showed fantastic character to not wilt after France second try.
Just lacking something when we have the ball. #IREvFRA
Henderson had great game but he wasn't same when he came back on.— Tom Coleman (@LeinsterRoyalty) February 14, 2021
Really front up.
Too often our carriers were running as single runners and getting swamped by French backrow. Happened too often to be more than just disjointed.
There is no plan in attack. The box kicking isn’t the problem, the problem is what we do after the box kick. #IREvFRA— David Cahill (@docathail) February 14, 2021
Some mentionable names missing this season, our line out has got better but we're missing that spark. But we have to remember this a difficult time for the players away in camp and no fans to support them at any games. #IREvFRA— Fred Sharkey (@FredSharkey) February 14, 2021
The score kept respectable by Ireland's character. But in professional sport in 2021, I'd rather take that as read tbh.— The Jackalist (@thejackalist) February 14, 2021
Still none the wiser as to what Farrell is attempting to achieve with the team. Our offence is unstructured, but not in the cool, sexy way. In the shit way.
Ireland should be looking to build on that performance now.— BallHandling Hooker (@BHHooker) February 14, 2021
This tournament is now gone, look to the future. They're doing well and players are performing.
Bring in Casey and Harry Byrne. Allow Sexton, Murray, and James Ryan to rest/recover and find who steps up in their place
Deserved win by France. They are a serious outfit. With the ball they are dangerous and without the ball they are equally as dominant.— Master Of None Podcast (@MasterOfNonePod) February 14, 2021
On the Irish side of things you can't fault the effort or the character. That game could have gotten messy early in the 2nd half but it didn't.
Also a word for Luke Pearce, refs get plenty of stick when things go wrong, think he got all the big calls right there and was very good imo #IREvFRA— The Champ Champs (@GifsRugbyNStuff) February 14, 2021
Weren't quite good enough, but there were lots of good performances and teamwork. Couldnt see us getting 2nd try tho we put them under a lot of pressure too. Expecting much 'coulda shoulda woulda' analysis but overall I'm a lot happier than I thought I'd be.#IREvFRA— Harpin' On Rugby (@HarpinOnRugby) February 14, 2021
