愛爾蘭:"相當令人失望" - 安迪-法雷爾承認愛爾蘭人在斐濟的勝利中表現不盡人意

最後更新於.從愛爾蘭橄欖球部分

愛爾蘭主教練安迪-法雷爾承認他的球隊在周六戰勝斐濟的秋季測試中的表現 "相當令人失望"。

法雷爾說,他為首次擔任隊長的塔格-福隆和三名首發球員感到高興,但他對球隊的表現沒有留下深刻印象。

他說。"就表現而言,相當令人沮喪"。

在以對世界冠軍南非的吸收性勝利拉開秋季戰役的序幕之後,愛爾蘭在對陣斐濟時顯得有些遲鈍。

客隊通過Kalaveti Ravouvou和Simione Kuruvoli取得了兩個精彩的嘗試,但由於Albert Tuisue在下半場早期被解僱,他們的違紀行為受到了影響。

隨着Apisalome Ratuniyarawa在第51分鐘吃到黃牌,斐濟隊被減少到13人,法雷爾認為他的球隊沒有利用他們的人數優勢。

他補充說:"對斐濟來說,由於紅牌和黃牌,我們只剩13人,而且罰球數為14-10,我們本應該比我們更有把握,"。

"我認為這就是故事的寓意。我們一次又一次地進入了22強,是的,這是個停不下來的過程,所以我們失去了我們的流程,但無論如何我們都沒有足夠的臨床經驗。"

隨着隊長約翰尼-塞克斯頓的休息,法雷爾利用與斐濟隊的比賽來深入了解他所掌握的人才庫,在贏得春奧會的比賽中做出了9項改變,並讓傑里米-拉夫曼、傑克-克勞利和西安-普倫德加斯特首次亮相。

Crowley在下半場一開始就上場進行了他的首次測試,替換了明斯特隊的隊友Joey Carbery,後者在受到Tuisue的撞擊後去做了頭部評估。

當被問及Crowley的表現時,法雷爾說。"我認為他表現不錯。他看起來在場上有一定的影響力。

"他當然不是一個縮頭烏龜。他為自己撐腰。他的第一次踢角球,直接踢進了5米,就他的性格而言,這是對他的一次重大考驗,而他也成功了。

"他的溝通非常好,這對他來說是一個好的開始。"

現在已經帶領愛爾蘭取得主場11連勝的法雷爾補充說:"我們對比賽的結果感到失望。

"穿上愛爾蘭隊的球衣,勝利總是特別的,但勝利的方式是我們會評估的,並確保我們能弄清楚的。"

愛爾蘭早早就因傷失去了羅比-亨肖,因為這位萊恩斯特中鋒的腿筋問題復發,導致他無法參加南非的比賽。

法雷爾說:"他感覺到了他的腿筋,"。

"他不覺得這有什麼太嚴重的。我們及時讓他休息,所以他沒有再受到傷害,所以我們會看看情況如何。"

當愛爾蘭隊低調地戰勝斐濟隊時,下周的對手澳大利亞隊被意大利隊驚呆了,阿祖里隊在佛羅倫薩取得了對小袋鼠隊的首次勝利。

然而,福隆--他將自己的第一次擔任隊長的經歷描述為一種 "巨大的特權"--期望澳大利亞在下周都柏林的測試中提高他們的水平。

他說:"他們是一個非常自豪的橄欖球國家,我相信他們下周會全力以赴,"他說。

Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has admitted his side's performance in Saturday's autumn Test win over Fiji was "pretty underwhelming".

Farrell said he was pleased for first-time captain Tadhg Furlong and the three debutants, but was left unimpressed by his side's display.

He said: "As far as the performance is concerned, pretty underwhelming."

Having opened the autumn campaign with an absorbing win over world champions South Africa, Ireland looked sluggish at times against Fiji.

The visitors scored two wonderful tries through Kalaveti Ravouvou and Simione Kuruvoli but were undermined by indiscipline with Albert Tuisue dismissed early in the second half.

With Apisalome Ratuniyarawa's 51st-minute yellow card Fiji were reduced to 13 men and Farrell felt his side did not pounce on their numerical advantage.

"For Fiji, being down to 13 men with the red and yellow cards and the penalty count being 14-10 in our favour, we should have been a lot more clinical than we were," he added.

"I think that's the moral of the story. We got into the 22 time and time again and yes it was stop-start so we lost our flow, but we weren't clinical enough by any stretch of the imagination."

With captain Johnny Sexton among those to be rested, Farrell used the Fiji game to dip deeper into the pool of talent at his disposal, making nine changes from the Springboks win and handing debuts to Jeremy Loughman, Jack Crowley and Cian Prendergast.

Crowley came on for his Test debut early in the second half, replacing Munster team-mate Joey Carbery, who went for a head assessment after taking a late hit from Tuisue.

Asked about Crowley's bow, Farrell said: "I thought he was good. He looked like he had a bit of presence out there.

"He's certainly not a shrinking violet. He backs himself. His first kick into the corner, straight into the five-metre, was a big test for him as far as his character was concerned and he nailed that.

"His communication is very good and it's a good start for him."

Farrell, who has now led Ireland to 11 straight home victories, added: "We're disappointed with the outcome of the game.

"The win is always special in an Irish shirt but the manner of the win is something we will assess and make sure we get to the bottom of."

Ireland lost Robbie Henshaw early on due to injury after the Leinster centre suffered a recurrence of the hamstring issue that ruled him out of the South Africa game.

"He felt his hamstring," said Farrell.

"He doesn't feel like it's anything too serious. We took him off in time so he's not anymore damage so we'll see how it is."

While Ireland laboured to a low-key win over Fiji, next week's opponents Australia were left stunned by Italy as the Azzurri claimed a first-ever win over the Wallabies in Florence.

However, Furlong - who described his first captaincy stint as a "massive privilege" - expects Australia to lift their level for next week's Test in Dublin.

"They're a very proud rugby nations and I'm sure they'll be coming all guns blazing next week," he said.
