How Ireland and Romania play and Statistics
Ireland’s style is focused on moving the ball to look for spaces and break the defense. One of their main virtues are the throws from the line out and a series of rehearsed plays that are usually executed to perfection. They count on the presence of the experienced Jonathan Sexton, captain, opener, star and scorer of the team. Los Robles play a more physical game, with very strong forwards at the time of contact but with a team with little imagination and somewhat childish. They show some flaws in the defense. The presence of fullback Marius Simionescu stands out.
