I think the weather might have had something to do with the type of game we saw in Dublin...

as soon as Sexton went off I knew England would win, while ROG is a good place-kicker he just isn't dynamic enough plus makes too many mistakes (think back to the Lions in 2009)

Strange how the ref in dublin could see a player clip the ball with his foot but from 3 yards couldn't see a fat Irishman try and break another players ankle in what was a cynical and cowardly act. The fat fecker should get banned for 10 weeks.

That Irish guy who tried to smash someone's ankle should be banned for life. Not ten weeks.

Dear Sirs,

What action are you taking against your player who deliberately tried to smash an England player's ankle in yesterday's international, please?

In my opinion he should be banned for life.

Yours faithfully,

aye, cause wales dazzled in paris...

at least Wales scored a try Mr Z.......

MNW - I'm not sure I'd call Cian Healy a "fat fecker" to his face!  and in the scheme of modern props, I'm not sure he would be one of the fat ones anyway.   but I agree, he should be cited and get a ban for that stamp as it was totally unneeded

a well taken one at that! but, it was a chip over the top not some dazzling running move! 

truth be told i really enjoyed both games - you couldnt say there wasnt tension - proper rugby

comments like piers are just lazy jingoistic sterotypes

neither the Wales or England games were adverts for flowing runing rugby but tension in the last 10mins of both matches was electric as both could have gone the other way with the results.  defences from all 4 sides were amazing - no quarter and very few chances given.

don't know what happened to Italy - clealry not an away side at the mo...

Had the bounce of the ball been different, England would've scored the try from the chip and Wales may not have done, so it's probably not a good stick for England-bashing

...and at least England have the excuse of the weather!

I thought England played to a plan; not so sure that the Wales-France game was planned...but both games for the purists (and as I'm a purist, I'm quite happy! )

Other than the English kicker I have seen nothing that would tell me any of these teams were International quality, you can get an evenly balanced game with a tense ending watching lower league

im guessing you didnt notice the weather? or maybe you'd prefer them to play with  gloves covered in a catch adhesive like they do in the NFL?

11/02/2013 at 13:52

both the Wales and England games were great spectacles for the purists, all about the scrum and the goal-kicking... England's ability to adapt in the conditions looks good for the future

The weather doesn't prevent you playing good rugby

they spray that stuff on their hands instead....  not that it made much difference in Dublin with the number of spilled balls...
