Whatever about the harsh red card, the decision not to yellow card anyone when Connacht were awarded the penalty try went against the laws of the game. It doesn't matter that they just got a yellow card on the play before, a penalty try means an automatic new one.
It was all irrelevant of course, I was sufficiently entertained by then.

Phew. Really pulled it out of the fire there in the second half. Really tightened up, very clinical in parts. Impressive.

Re: the red card - thought it was a strange call. From what the TMO was telling the ref, the contact started at the chest and moved up. However, the first few replays, which the ref saw, seemed to suggest that the contact started at the neck (players were in the way). If contact had started at the neck fine, red all day long. Think a yellow was deserved.

There was inconsistency with the reffing at other points in the game. We get a straight yellow for not retreating ten, they are allowed infringe something like 6 times in the five meter area and get a warning.

In fairness, they did eventually get a yellow, the penalty try against them was given quickly etc.

Good result today after the red card. Job done. 5 points in the bag.

Enjoyed the match ... thought we were goosed when Robb went off for a very harsh red card ... he's a super player and should push for irish honours. Also thought Tom Daly , Kyle Godwin , Porch & Jack Carty did well when pinging to the corners. Ultan Dillane also showed up well in the tight.
Would have hammered them if not for the dodgy ref.

Great win , thought we were goosed when Robb was very harshly red carded - he's a super player and should push for irish caps. Was v impressed with the team that they did not fade away in the heat. Jack Carty pinging the corners also excellent.

Hopefully we will get a few in Rabbitts for this match. Could be a potential little bannaskin if we don't have a heads screwed on.
Hoping for a 5 pointer and NO MORE INJURIES #WishfulThinking

Looking forward to this match! Realstically, need to try and get the maximum out of this fixture. Kings aren't doing brilliantly, but you never know. They've yet to win a match at home this season, and their window to do same is narrowing.

Will be interesting to see who gets the nod this weekend. Might be no harm to let some lads who have some minutes built up have a breather, but equally don't want to take the foot off the pedal, like.
