Online comments after Ireland v USA

A selection of the “keyboard warrior” reactions after the full-time whistle of our featured matches of the weekend.

If you’d like to contribute stay tuned to our Facebook page for our “Feel free to leave your thoughts…” posts which show up around full time after Leinster & Ireland matches.

Paul Smith Have to put it in the context of the opposition but to score 71 points and 10 tries is impressive in anyone's book. Delighted for Kelleher, a well deserved MOM, but anyone from Casey, Coomes and particularly Keenan would also have worthy winners. Some lovely rugby out there, brilliant to see a pretty young Irish team throwing the ball around and offloading with such flair. Nice to see he fans to see enjoying the free flowing rugby at the stadium too.

Gav Heg Some great individual performances but let's not call a spade a shovel, it was a particularly bad USA team. I think some of the non performers today for us were the more established players like Ryan, carbery and Doris.

Angela Cassin Jackson Good game but I’d love to see that’s Irish team against maybe the English team that played earlier I think that would give them both a really good run out

Michelle Tobin We sang the fields multiple times. Felt more like live rugby than last weekend. Clearly didn't sell out. Glad I was there but felt a bit like NZ v Tonga

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
