5 weekends of fantastic rugby!
Care/Youngs and Philips offers an interesting match play against opposition - different styles of play which can catch opponents out as they will need time to adapt to whoever comes on as a replacement.
I think we might struggle a bit in Murrayfield - I don't have a good feeling for that game. and whatever the status of the 6N is going into the Cardiff game against England, it should be a good game - either we get stuffed if we lose to Scotland, or it will be tight with all to play for. I will be in France watching it as I'm on a skiing week with my birthday the day after - much like last year when we won the GS on my birthday and I was in Chatel skiing.
why the hell can't the 6N choose a final match date that doesn't clash with my birthday as I always ski then?? how bloody inconsiderate of them....
March 9: Scotland v Wales, 2.30pm and Ireland v France, 5pm
March 10: England v Italy, 3pm
March 16: Italy v Ireland, 2.30pm, Wales v England, 5pm and France v Scotland, 8pm
can't argue with that.
FB, you're just going to have to give up skiing, sorry, but duty calls and all that.
I am also nervous about Murrayfield. I'm just hoping we don't see Ryan Jones sacrificed to get Warbs into the team, and that they do something to sort out the lineout (bringing in Alun Wyn would help). The Scots will give us a hard time on our lineout ball.
luckily with the 5pm KO in Cardiff (6pm French time) I shall be firmly ensconced in a pub post-ski watching the game......
Looking forward to the game. I for one hope Ryan Jones misses out
I also hope Geoff Cross keeps his place ahead of Euan Murray. Aside from the fact that his not-playing-on-a-sunday is daft, he is a spent force. Cross is easily his equal and played well v ireland.
Murray is a better prop still than Cross (take it from this prop... ) - as for him not playing on a Sunday, whilst I don't agree with it per se being an atheist, I admire him for sticking to his principles.
I'm looking forward to the 3 games this afternoon.
Well I dont have to hang my head in shame, what a game out classed and out thought well done Cymru.
England have a long way to go in their development, years infact.
french support booing. always a good sign.
fancied them to lose but not a doing like that.
pleased to see Ally Kellock on the field. an outstanding player and captain cruelly ignored by the Scottish selectors because he did not go to the correct school.
hogg just missed out on the Lions tour right there. like laidlaw he can not tackle.
deserved french win. we were punished for our relentless negativity.
another poor championship.
the players are too big, strong. the only answer is to reduce the game to 13 players.
I said it before and will say it again that fat prop Cian Healey has no place on a rugby pitch.
calm down Max - he's been cited and his case has yet to be heard. and when referred to the TMO by the ref to review the video evidence of the allegation, nothing was proven then. it's going to be a tough call to prove it.
