An easy win for the Irish this week and I think it's between them and France for the title.

I think England will surprise folk and will win at least three matches, probably Wales, Italy and Scotland. Gethin Jenkins is out injured which will help England. God, I'd love to win three matches.  ::)

I think getting France first up is a good thing, get them when it's cold and miserable and we might sneak it. Unfortunately, we our stand-off is complete gash and our inside centre is a crash ball merchant who never passes the ball. We have the very quick and elusive Evans brothers outside them but almost zero chance of actually getting the ball to them.  >:(  I expect our score to be divisible by three.  ;)





Well  I got that spot on. Never really got the ball to the wings but Lamont did OK when he did get hold of the ball. We just seem incapable of finishing off whatever chances we do manage to make.  >:(

Lamont did look good. Some of the defence was very good as well, especially second half....mind you, the set piece must be a real worry for Robinson.

Whatever colours you have in your mind
I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine

Once that religious whack-job Euan Murray comes back we'll do better there. Getting in big Jim Hamilton in the second row would also be a good idea. I just hope Adam Jones is injured before next week.

I think Scotland did remarkably well considering how dominated their forwards were in the scrum/  Pleased that they managed to pick up an away win - looking forward to next week against Ireland.

Just time for some quick predictions.

Wales by at least 10, Scotland score divisible  by 3  >:(

France narrowly over Ireland (less than 7 points)

England comfortably over Italy (more than 15)

Ireland France to close to call for me - could go either way.

I imagine Wales will have the edge against the Scots and England shouldn't have much trouble against Italy

Useless c***s. Why the feck not just kick it straight out from the kick-off. The 80 minutes were up so the game would have been over. That useless little fecker Godman should never be seen in the vicinity of a scotland shirt ever again.



AAAARRRGGGHHHHHHH

Very Scottish ending to the game, BP is right... kick out on the full for a draw, didn't they know the rules?

BaldiePete

I haven't felt this bad after a game since England beat us in 1994 with the last kick of the match.  >:(  The next day we found out that my wife was pregnant. At least there's no chance of history repeating itself this time.  ;)

Tom Garrett

We need France to implode like Scotland did  atm. :P
Don't argue with the ignorant and stupid; they'll take you down to their level and beat you with experience!

Well that was an enjoyable couple of hours.  Keep that sort of form going and we're looking at a Grand Slam.  If there was an if in that sentence  it would be a big one.

QuoteTwo Scotland players, wing Thom Evans and full-back Chris Paterson, will be detained overnight in University Hospital Cardiff following injuries sustained in today’s RBS 6 Nations Championship match against Wales at the Millennium Stadium.

Scotland team doctor James Robson said tonight: “Thom has sustained damage to his neck that has required surgery.  He is moving his arms and legs and we are hoping for a speedy recovery.  There will be a further bulletin in due course. “Chris sustained damage to his right kidney during a collision in the first-half.  On admission to hospital it became evident that the damage would require a period of observation and, in particular, bed rest in order to aid his recuperation.



“On behalf of the players, their families and the entire Scotland party, I would like to thank the hospital staff and the medical team at the Millennium Stadium for the quality of their care.”

Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said: “Our thoughts are with Thom and Chris.  We wish both a speedy recovery.”
