Wet Chariot

Not exactly a classic this afternoon in Dublin, but given the conditions it was never going to be.

It seems a long, long time since England came out on top in a tactical kicking game but they did today, although the appearance of ROG did cause me palpitations for a while. Still, I thought my performance held up pretty well, I kept my discipline, made all my tackles and was still going strong at the final whistle.

The biggest mystery today was how collective myopia appeared to consume the match officials, all of whom appeared not to see Cian Healy's brutal stamp on an England forward's leg in the first half, nor his follow up flurry of punches at almost the next ruck. I trust the eyesight of the citing officer will be a touch keener.

Mr Healy's temper certainly seems to be getting the better of him - lets hope the citing officer does too
