Player Ratings As Dismal Ireland Are Battered By England At Twickenham

Brutal.

Ireland’s dreams of a Triple Crown were crushed by England today thanks to a completely dominant performance by the World Cup finalists at Twickenham.

Andy Farrell’s side were beat up from start to finish with the 24-12 scoreline flattering Ireland who never looked like winning the game. Mistakes from Johnny Sexton and Jacob Stockdale proved to be costly with England leading 17-0 at the break.

The men in green fought back in the second half with two tries of their own but things got a little messy and England look like they took their foot off the pedal to a certain extent.

Here are your Ireland player ratings.

15. JORDAN LARMOUR – 5

Struggled in the air post physically and positionally. Completely shut down in attack too.

14. ANDREW CONWAY – 6

Didn’t get much of the ball in attack but was solid in defence and did his job for the most part.

13. ROBBIE HENSHAW– 6

Scored a good try but was caught flatfooted in defence on a number of occasions and never threatened in attack.

12. BUNDEE AKI – 4

Lots of handling errors and pretty much dead in attack.

11. JACOB STOCKDALE – 4

Still can’t understand what he was thinking for Daly’s try. Especially considering England had a penalty advantage. Just make sure of it.

10. JOHNNY SEXTON – 3

A brutal rating for a truly brutal performance.

9. CONOR MURRAY – 3

It’s time Murray was dropped and Cooney was given a chance. Just not on form. Needs to rediscover himself and a stint on the bench might help.

1. CIAN HEALY – 4

Gone after 25 mins.

2. ROB HERRING – 5

Lineouts were poor today and very quiet in the loose.

3. TADHG FURLONG – 4

A rare poor game from the Wexford man.

4. DEVIN TONER –  5

Solid in defence but once again showed he just gets destroyed in attack every time.

5. JAMES RYAN – 6

Itoje got the better of him but Ryan still put in a good shift compare to his teammates.

6. PETER O’MAHONY – 6

Fought all day but couldn’t do it on his own.

7. JOSH VAN DER FLIER – 5

Completely outshone by Underhill.ff

8. CJ STANDER – 6

Another man who gave his all but couldn’t do it on his own.

REPLACEMENTS:

16. RONAN KELLEHER – 6

Looked threatening in the loose when he came on.

17. DAVE KILCOYNE – 6

Not one of his best cameos. Shutdown for the most part.

18. ANDREW PORTER – 6

Took his try well

19. ULTAN DILLANE – 5

Offered something when he came on.

20. CAELAN DORIS – 6

Pushing for a start in the next fame.

21. JOHN COONEY – 6

Looked lively and deserves a start.

22. ROSS BYRNE – 5

Few poor passes in a mostly silent cameo.

23. KEITH EARLS – 5

Didn’t get a chance to do much.
