Ireland captain Peter O’Mahony has backed Epolaham Fayva after a red card from an Italian whore ruined today’s game at Aviv.
Faiva was removed for a high kick to Dan Sheehan. Since the Italians had already lost their prostitute due to injury, they were punished twice, as the laws stipulated that Italy had to lose a second player, because after that the inevitable skirmishes were inevitable. Obviously, this is a deeply flawed law.
O’Mahony said, “Such red cards probably don’t bring games. I don’t think there was any intention. Now it’s getting hard for players; you have to watch the height of the tackle.
“It certainly disrupted the game, but we tried to stay on it and pay tribute to Italy. Eight minutes before the end, they knocked down two and then three. They got stuck there.
“We stuttered a bit with the stop and start. But look at the 57 points, the bonus point, we have something to work on.
“Probably we could navigate the game a little better. You have to stay in the fight, fulfill your role, there are guys who get opportunities and you have to play with the intensity of the match. We are thrilled to win at home.
“The game in England will be huge, but every game in this competition is huge.”
The player of the match, Josh van der Flier, was also in favor of replacing the procurator of Italy.
He said: “We are very happy with the results, it was not easy for Italy, they performed very well with 13 men for so long in this game, so it is a great credit to them. Sometimes it was very sloppy of us. It was quite a stop-start; Italy has complicated this for us.
“We definitely have something to improve if we enter the game with England.
“It’s a nice result overall and Italy’s pride for the way they played there.”
