Given how little Rugby is talked about we may as well use the main thread. :)

Ireland got quite lucky with their first game, England could certainly do better.

A lot remains to be seen with how well France play today, out of the main contenders.

Yeah, very disappointed in Ireland's play today.

As I said before they are missing a few of their big names and they even needed to bring on O'Gara just to get that win in the last few kicks of the game. Even more disappointing considering Italy weren't doing to well either. One more try after that quick one at the start of the 2nd half and Ireland would have comfortably won.

The way it's looking at the moment considering Ireland's not really at "full strength", France have yet to play but have been doing well previously and England seem to be in great condition this season so I think results will end up something like this:

1.France
2.England
3.Ireland
4.Wales
5. Scotland
6. Italy

Hopefully it isn't and Ireland will turn themselves around and come out top :cheers:
Plenty of games still to come so I will be a happy lad for the next 2 months or so.


Cowboy are you an England supporter considering you're from suffolk?

Your table looks probably not far off how it will finish, given 1st weekend form. :)

France looked very very good in attack, and I'm sure they'll try to improve their defensive lapses.

Yes, I am an England fan. :)

both England and Ireland needed to be more clinical in their finishing.

England were strong in their pack but needed quicker ball of their rucks to spread the Welsh, As it was most of the play was extremely predictable. The Welsh... Tbh they looked clueless when they had the ball and seemed to run out of ideas after 4-5 phases...

Ireland were especially guilty of not finishing the Italians off and as soon as Leamy was sin binned the Italians came at us in waves.. Lucky to have won in the End.

The French looked impressive going forward but allowing Scotland score 3 fairly comfortable tries, shows they have a worrying defensive frailty..

Bring them on! I say for next Sunday in Dublin.. could see that match being a championship decider.

Even tho Scotland lost, there was a lot of positives, especially since we scored 3 tries, hope theres more to come!

So far the 6 nations has disappointed in action, i hope for more of the same in a weeks time!

Well played England, some sloppy lapses but otherwise top performance!

Didnt like the ref, some of decisions were abit strange.

Was a good win for England, hopefully we can take it forward to the more challenging games ahead.

Since when was the Law change to state that when putting a ball into the scrum, you can put it into the second row! Some of those french scrums were shocking. im ok with a little angle on the put in to give you the advantage, but dont put it in at right angles!

Ireland had the chance to win, shame they didnt.

Again another bad game for the ref, didnt like some of the decisions he gave.

caught the last half of the England v Ireland game in a pub in Rome over the weekend. Such a shame we missed out on the grand slam and the play on the brits side was appalling... didn't helpp that I was in an Irish pub for it either.. at least 90% of the pub enjoyed rubbing it in.
