France are an utter embarrassment. How England lost to that shower I have no idea.[/QUOTE]


It's France mate! Either brilliant like they were in Paris or fucking abject like they were in Cardiff last night, there's no middle ground..

Funny situation here.. I'm usually screaming for the men in green when they're playing England but Wales need Ireland to loose a game to stand a chance of winning the championship.. I'm torn.. Head's shouting 'England', heart's shouting 'Ireland!' :D On the plus side I can't loose today.. England win, Wales win. Ireland win, England loose! :D :D

I was cheering Wales on, everyone wants the French to loose. Right?

[QUOTE="Admartian, post: 6308064]Damn England. Really thought Ireland would have it.

This image is gold though:



Care's face and Sexton's running with his hands by his side is funny.[/QUOTE]

Don't mind Care being happy about scoring, but seems a few players like to indulge in rubbing the opposition nose it these days. Mike Brown just stared at Duncan Weir (I think) a few weeks back when he scored with a massive grin on his face. Celebrate scoring with your fans or team mates (if you must), don't gloat.

Thought Ireland would shade it too tbh, but they're probably just about favourites for the title still. Need to win v France in Paris and they could do it, even if we beat England next week.

I dont agree with gloating but where's the outcry like George North got when he wagged his finger at the opposition when he went over the lion for the lions last year? Seem the ex players and pundits who were lining up to slate him don't mind if its an English player doing the gloating..

Well done England!

Now, any Welshman who tries to convince me that Rhys Priestland is a good player after that performance is going to get tracked down and given a fucking good shoeing.. :D Him and Webb shouldn't have retaken the pitch after the oranges, simple as that..

If France win this 6 Nations, would it be the worst team ever to do so?

I'm utterly amazed at how they've managed to win 3 games. As far as I can tell, they played well for 5 minutes after half time against Italy and had that outrageous final minute score v England. That's basically it.

Great effort by England to try and overturn Ireland's +50 PD, didn't quite make it though. Good win nonetheless. Now we have to rely on France to do a number on Ireland in the Stade de France. Not holding out much hope to be honest.

[QUOTE="Dave-The-Rave, post: 6317860]I almost couldn't breathe at the end when France had that forward pass.[/QUOTE]
Me either - although I just knew his hands had gone forward.

My son plays Swindon and Wooton Bassett tomorrow in the U12's. So hopefully he'll be inspired from the games today :)

Aye that was tense! :D Could maybe have been insignificant though if that French try against the post was reviewed by the TMO, not that I could see anything wrong with it..

Some cracking rugby gents!

The Blues vs Lions was a great game despite a loss, as well as some others that I failed to watch! :p Benji Marshall looking good for a league convert - he still has his dancing shoes.

The Canes need to get their shizz together though.

And congrats to BoD for finishing on top :).
