Tonight’s celebratory St. Patrick’s Day RAW has two extra-happy Irishmen basking in Grand Slam rugby glory and a Reds performance that left them purring. Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi had the very pleasant job of picking apart the 5-0 Anfield win against Watford that sent Liverpool into the international break in great form, thanks in major part to the goalscoring exploits of Mo Salah, whose forth strike on the night was his 33rd in only 41 games.

An extended RAW needed today, in order for Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi to fully articulate their frustrations and disillusionment in the wake of Liverpool’s narrow defeat at Old Trafford to Jose Mourinho’s cynical opportunists.

There is some animated chat about Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson, a chat about some of the unusual highlights of the night and a general sense of quiet contentment about The Reds’ business-like execution of the night’s task.
