Huge match this one, will decide who takes the number 2 spot in this group. Ireland a big chance, even moreso with Douehi suspended

Game of the week. Even matchup for me with Ireland solid across the park and Lebanon with their sprinkle of talent and amateurs.
Winner likely goes through.
Lebanon for me with the amateurs showing heart and the class of Moses getting them over the line.
Lebanon by 6

The Irish shot themselves in the foot in that first half.

Mitch Moses was great though, he goes hard for Lebanon, it's great to see

Awesome win, semi finals looking very possible for the Cedars with Moses in such top form!!!

Ireland beat themselves today, was frustrating to watch, couldn’t hold the ball and gave away too many penalties, but to be fair I think Ireland reflected solid super league players, and Lebanon looked like fringe NRL players, the fringe players are just a little better.

Magnificent Mitchell Moses won the game on his own.
Disappointed in Keary for Ireland but then all they wanted to do was concede penalties.

I enjoyed the contest. Seemed like there was alot of niggle between both sides and it didn't let the Irish find any rhythm which negated Keary's game.
Would love to know what he was saying to the Lebanese player (Rahme?) after the game.
