I think Scotland will finish above Wales and Ireland this year but will probably go for the now traditional trouncing by Italy.

England don't have a first place finish in them!

Like the first post, I think it'll go:

France

Ireland

England

Wales

Scotland

Italy.

*bounce bounce*

Good work on the anthem, FF

I have a Waitrose ready-meal (and a lager!) in the fridge so I'm all set for this evening!

My brother bought me a new French jersey* when he was in Paris so I'm not sure whether I should christen it tonight or wait until the French game tomorrow.

* thankfully not one of those skintight lycra ones

I hope everyone plays to the same rules.  In a lot of games recently it seems the ref has a completely different rulebook - or someone has scribbled over the pages which relate to the scrummage.

Do they still have scrums ?  I thought they fanny about a bit and then all fall over

Any more predictions for this weekend's matches?

I'm going for a narrow England win over Wales, Ireland to thump Italy and France to eventually wake up and sneak past Scotland.

ALLEZ LES BLEUES!

Wales, France, Ireland to win this weekend.

If Wales play like they did for part of the game against the all blacks they will win the 6N.   England  played some good stuff but also some average stuff in the autumn  - think they will have a mixed campaign. Ireland will need to magic up a front row from somewhere in order to compete with the big boys.

Are you French LN?  Why otherwise would you want to wear a French shirt?

No, I'm not French it's just that when I started watching rugby I had the choice between Will Carling and Serge Blanco. No contest

He was enormous!!!

Well done England, thought Wales might just sneak it at the end but they held on.

England did well to hold on at the end.  However they were the better side through the game and took their chances well.  Looking good for the campaign if the injured players come back before the finish.

France are the big threat, but playing at Twickenham?  Nah!

France haven't played well against England for a while now. Even when they win they play badly!

*grump*

Managed to avoid all reference to the match while recording it- come back,turn telly on to hear Davina announcing the bl**dy score on some random quiz.

Looks like the scrums could be interesting, can't remember the last time I saw two won against the head.  Hopefully penalising collapsing will encourage keeping it up.

wales failed to kick their goals, would have been much closer had they done so

loved Jonny making 3 tackles in his first minute on the pitch!
05/02/2011 at 15:18

The scrums were rubbish!

FORZA ITALIA!

Turgid game in Italy.  Ireland just seem to lack any ambition or confidence.  Come on Italy, you can beat this lot! 
05/02/2011 at 16:17
Italy were robbed
