The weather doesn't prevent you playing good rugby

you're right - it doesn't.  but it doesn't help an awful lot either....

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

They didn't play well but, in fairness, the scoreline flattered us. When Hogg scored his breakaway try italy were threatening. Had they scored instead of us, it may well have been different. Great to see us showing a bit of positivity and uncharacistic ruthlessness.

Expect Italy to come back strongly.

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

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

true enough, and to be fair most of the dropped balls were due to players looking up at the oncomming defenders rather than watching the ball 

however, if anyone thinks the weather doesnt effect the style of play, compare the average points scored per game last week to this week...

Two tremendous weekends of rugby.

And brilliant videography.

pretty inevitable really so I guess Healy won't see any more 6 Nations action.  it may also have jeopardised his place on the Lions tour as he was pretty much certain of being selected as one of the loose heads along with Gethin Jenkins

Two match ban.

Doesn't seem enough, really.

I thought he would have got more than that and at least been banned from the rest of the 6N.

it often seems that bans are more lenient when it's come via the citing commissioner rather than via the ref despite video evidence.

hey ho

BOING! 

I predict wins for England and Wales today. I will be watching France from behind a cushion 

Think Scotland might edge Ireland tomorrow.

Allez Les Bleus!

Think twickenham will give england the edge. The french willl have improved but England have been very professional.

wounded lion italy to edge wales and scotland to win by 5

going by last night's score i'd immediately promote the Glasgow Warriors XV!

I predict wins for Wales, France and Ireland.

England are probably the best team in this yrs 6N and the coach is doing the best job of any of the coaches...but it's about time some French unpredicability turned up. I predict it will be today ...

Where's Freddie Michelak when you need him ?

See I'm a French Rugby Coach !

Well France turned up to play although I didn't understand some of the substitutions. Well done England, can't see anything stopping  a Grand Slam now.

Lovely try from Fofana 

I could live without Woodward's commentary though

france 5 england 5

Are you watching the women's game dude? I've caught the last few minutes and it's pretty entertaining 

23/02/2013 at 20:20

well i would be if the Feed didn't stop cutting out!

philipe saint-andre was RAGING earlier, huh?

23/02/2013 at 20:41

I didn't see the after match stuff, but surely some of the blame has to lie with PSA's substitutions?

23/02/2013 at 22:12

Oops, double post
