Onwards and upwards everyone! I’ve got a stress headache and just ate my body weight in Chinese. But its all good, life goes on. Let’s all just be happy there’s actually rugby to watch 🇮🇪— Clare Molloy (@ClareeMolloy) February 7, 2021
Really mixed feelings after that. To be so competitive for so long a man down is great - but as you say, game was there for the taking in the end.— Dan Kerins (@dankerins) February 7, 2021
Final kick wasn’t even close though.
Terribly disappointing. As ever unforced errors cost us that game. 1. PO'M's shoulder charge. 2. Earls taking the guy out in the air 3. Murray blocking the runner onto the ball 4. Billy Burns for an unforgivable kick dead. Unforgivable!!!— Riocard Ó Tiarnaigh (@riocard911) February 7, 2021
Disappointing overall. Some cracking performances but decision making continues to be an issue— Ciaran - @HallOfSportzPod (@CiaranPowerHall) February 7, 2021
Keep it civil with Billy.— BallHandling Hooker (@BHHooker) February 7, 2021
It's one bad performance. It doesn't deserve the internet trolls.
Ireland discipline cost them this game. Nothing else
Not sure what to say about that last kick 😳— Tom Coleman (@LeinsterRoyalty) February 7, 2021
Thats sigh.....After bursting a gut to give us a chance.
Congratulations Wales all the same.
Well, we won, but hard work against 14 men. All credit to Ireland, they could easily have won even with one down. Still, I’ll take the win. It was a better performance than in the previous few games and will build confidence. Da iawn Cymru #WALIRE— Carwyn Jones AS/MS 🏴 (@AMCarwyn) February 7, 2021
Interesting thought that just came to me re Burns' missed kick at the end earlier - remembering O'Gara's penalty in Cardiff for the Slam & Sexton's dropgoal in Paris in 2018 & what if they hadn't come off - such fine margins to be a "hero" at No. 10! #WALIRE— Grace O'Sullivan (@gosulli) February 7, 2021
On the surface to win the 65m period after the red card is some achievement and there were loads of positives and other mitigation but I still think that match was there for the taking. Kick at the end said it all - that's where we lacked the most. Disappointing. #WALvIRE— Harpin' On Rugby (@HarpinOnRugby) February 7, 2021
Just to clarify...IMO there's nothing wrong with fans going on social media and expressing their disappointment. The problem is the morons who target players with abuse using @ mentions. They are not fans, at least not ones of anything that's good. #WALvIRE— Harpin' On Rugby (@HarpinOnRugby) February 7, 2021
