Nope. When it comes to Sport, I loathe the scots! (apart fom andy murray when we need him to be british)

Still not forgiven them for 1990 in the 5 nations



feck British, Murray is a Scot as much as their rugby team.

Not based on last week's performances....the Welsh must have a chance against the English and the French against the Scots...

watched the second half of the Wales England game - dire stuff!

Home wins all round. Thankfully we played a damn sight better than the dire performance against Wales. I missed yesterday's games but from the highlights I've seen, Ireland thumped Italy in the first half before subbing a load of players on and going to sleep allowing them three tries in the second. I only saw the tries (and the non-try) in the England v Wales match. If that decision had been given against my team I'd be absolutely raging.

Not sure what to say about the TMO, it obviously worked in our favour. These guys are professionals/qualified referees, and are impartial.

Its a bit lie in the cricket when they are using replays to guage catches and whether the ball bounces first on a low one. TV angles can be very misleading/revealing in equal measure.

Player thought he had put pressure on the ball, I havent got a clue!

France's turn to batter Italy -  Les Bleus may be playing themselves into form ahead of the England game
Ireland to edge past the Welsh on home advantage.
England to edge past the Scots based on gameplan and strength in depth from the bench

France will win, but not really fussed about French form. They are big, heavy and unfit. ngland will run them ragged then win in the last 10
Ireland to win against Wales, but think it will be close
We will do the Scots by plenty

Calcutta Cup matches at Murrayfield are usually tight and low scoring but I expect an England win. They have weight in the forwards,  plenty of experience and show good mental strength (possibly our weakest attribute) to get the win no matter what.

France to beat Italy but god knows how it will go after they dropped a bunch of players for going out on the piss in Edinburgh after the last match. What is the world coming to when rugby players can't have a drink after a match?

Ireland to beat Wales. Ireland rarely lose at home and even with injuries I expect Sexton to guide them to  a win.

I love the Calcutta cup, something very raw and basic about the battle.
Certainly wont be a repeat of last years Twickenham cricket score, Scotland a different side and different mindset, and we have some injuries (which side doesnt these days?)

We're better than we've been for quite some time but last year was a total brainfart on our part. See my comment about our mental strength, when it doesn't go well for us, the heads go down. Mind you our hooker was yellow carded in the first minute (and probably should have got red), Hogg went off injured after 15 minutes and his replacement also went off injured 5 minutes later. We ended up with our replacement scrum half on the wing and replacement stand off at full back. We'd have lost anyway but those losses were a factor in the size of the defeat. I'm intending to watch this weekends match from behind the sofa.  :o

Arse.

At the winter Olympics all the Jockos have been complete and utter chokers. Why can't these XV be?
