France were dismal.  I almost switched off after the first 20 minutes but for some reason (masochism?) I kept watching. Dire!!  Although England were very good it's disappointing to see France quite so off the pace.


Enjoyed the Scotland Ireland game.  I thought Scotland were a little unlucky, they started very strongly.  And thought Kinghorn was excellent when he came on.



Yes I agree on both points. France are so talented and somehow do not play well during the six nations.


Scotland were definitely unlucky, I thought the ref made some really poor decisions against Scotland.

Another excellent performance from England last weekend (until they made the usual wholesale changes)
Jonny May starting to look like a real finisher. Mako V will be a miss in the loose against the Welsh, but the scrum looks better without him.
Itoje needs to come back ASAP if we've a chance to overcome the men in red....
I thought the Jocks were a little unlucky with a couple of decisions, but ultimatelly were comfortably beaten by the Paddys.

Are you saying you don't think we can beat Wales without Itoje mate?

Jonners

I dont think he is, and certainly dont think that is right.

Will be a cracker, but I really think we are very good at the moment. Will be interesting to see our tactics, i imagine Wales will have been obsessing on us kicking through and over the top for the last two weeks, so I imagine we may mix it up a bit

On second thoughts, it looks like we're not ready after all then...

Yep, but we also needed a decent set of tactics in the end.... >:(

The Welsh were better prepared and mentally more "up for it" than the English. it was crucial that we didn't score in the 5 mins before half time when in a really strong position....

So if Wales beat Ireland without getting the bonus point next week, they do the grand slam. However, if England beat Scotland and get the bonus point, both England and Wales finish on 20 points. Who wins the title then?

The Welsh...

They get a "bonus" 3 bonus points for winning the grand slam. I guess this is to avoid the scenario that you've outlined, but makes a mockery of the bonus point system in the first place...

Exactly mate. Bit of a long winded way of scoring it tbh.

Not beyond the realms of possibility that results over the weekend will see England crowned as six nations champions. This doesn't mask the fact that when it really matters, we always shit out against The Welsh.

I've got a feeling The Scots could put a spanner or two in the works of the fancied teams.



Trust it to be us again! We can't even begin to hope about winning the RWC after the way we caved in against the Welsh and the Scottish.

Wow..helluva game



Not from our point of view mate. A draw no better than a defeat tbh.
