Nothing worse than a gloating Jock, unless its the "performance" of 15 Englishmen on a rugby field yesterday...best team won on the day.

Give us a break, we don't get to do it very often.  ::)    What about gloating Taffs ?

Gloating Taffs are nowhere near as bad....I'd almost compare gloating Jocks to gloating Liverpudlians, but with more "grace".... :P

Sometimes you need a backward step to go forward, but I still think we'll fall short of at least one of the 3 southern hemisphere giants come the WC. Mike Brown doesn't give me any confidence, and why does our captain never play a full game?

Back after a week off to contemplate the "shock" loss to Scotland...

I'm predicting the Irish to remain on course for a Grand Slam by beating the Jocks (less than 10)
England to edge past France after failing to find early "rhythm"
Wales' "reserves" to stick it to Italy with a 20 point margin

Just seen teh England team for the weekend....

Hartley's throw into the line-out will be missed, but Geroge's overall contributionn should outweigh that

Why does EJ persist with Lawes at flanker? Are we that short of decent back-rowers that we have to include a 2nd row  :-\

The inclusion of Te'o & Daly implies that we're epxecting a tough game out wide...

I think we will try and beat them up or at least beat each other up for 60 minutes, then let the likes of Joseph and Simmons come on with pace

Ireland to beat the SCots, who dont travel well, and I assume the Wales 2nd team will beat Italy

That sounds about right. Your match is going to be an arm wrestle (or maybe mud wrestling depending on the weather).

Indeed....so much work to do with the forwards at the break down and the backs look devoid of ideas...

How can a team that was going so weel last season slip away so badly...

It must be a psychological thing with the WC approaching mate. It happens to the football team as well!
