Thought I’d start this to save the Gentlemen’s game getting mixed in with those nasty soccer threads.

So it was a right old mixed bag for those interested in the game with the egg shaped ball (alright I know there are at least 4 versions and one has some super duper final or something tonight) but I mean Rugby Union for the purposes of this thread. First of all the French go from heroes in the pouring rain to zero’s and hand the game on a plate to Wales. Mind you if Les Bleus had a kicker the Welsh still wouldn’t have won.

Then the Scots, who’ve rediscovered the game in recent years, trounce the Italians before letting them get a few tries at the end. Finally England’s 1st team free from injuries turn up all brave and quick and nasty in Dublin to beat the Irish - second best team in the world, in a fantastic game. Us English should get carried away because it’s the first time we’ve won in Dublin for donkey’s and played really well, but not cocky and over confident because it’s just one game, but the signs look promising for the World Cup in Japan this Autumn.

So post all your Rugby stuff in here....we’re getting to the sharp end of things soon.

England take on the best that France has to offer this weekend. But it’s on Sunday and you’ll either have to miss half an hour of our win against Leicester or the first 30mins of the Rugby.

The French have a load of very big blokes up front and smaller ones behind that aren’t as good as they used to be, and no-one apparently that is very good at kicking. So we should win an entertaining game at the cabbage patch.

In other news Scotland play Ireland and Wales get Italy..

England gave us a trouncing in the first half of that game. You look solid in every area. Was a great game to watch though!

We had the first team back fit. Including our ‘English’ Southern Islanders like the Vunipolas

Use will go well unless all English sportsmen have the football teams mentality and believe the hype Hahaha.

We'll bounce back today at Murrayfield. The lads will be pissed at their performance on home turf first game.

Well that’s the French truly done and dusted, 44-8 no mean feat, well played Johnny May and the boys. Probably a better game, and definitely better anthems at Murrayfield, between Scotland and Ireland, could have gone either way, but the Irish got themselves back on track. Wales beat Italy less than convincingly.

Next weekend off, so the potential title decider Wales vs England in Cardiff on 23rd February is the biggie. Wales unbeaten in 11 games, England with a point to prove, hostile atmosphere, great players and coaches. Too close to call? Nah England by 10.

Stunning couple of performances from the boys. Utterly dominated the kicking game in both games, be very surprised if Gatland doesn't wise up to that tactic, although when executed as well as we have done it, then it's tough to defend against.. Also mightily impressed with our defense, our line speed closing down the opposing fly half and centres is something i haven't seen from us, for a good 18 months.

Although the Welsh are at home and on the run they're on, they'll be properly charged up for it but can't see them turning us over if we play the way we've been playing.
