    Italy doing France certainly makes things interesting. However knowing France they'll come out and batter everyone now.

    Didn't see Wales game but tried to tape it - sounds we were wank in 1st half
    Gave my tix to a mate as well as on hols but am going up to Scotland and may do Italy

    Italy with a hell of a result!

    We're England good or Scotland as shit as usual?

    Zebo quickly becoming a legend. Played a dj set in Cork after the Wales game

    Decent performance by Scotland.

    Stuart Hogg is some prospect. Shocked that he's only 20. Not just for his talent but looks in his early 30's

    Didn't see 1st half but 2nd half Scotland just capitalised on some erratic desperate Italian play. Will be good to see how Scots front up for rest of campaign

    Wales

    But France are shambles - but I hope they sort it out against England

    Ireland win or draw today would be good!

    It's scrappy at the moment.

    Cian Healy's stamp wasn't nice. Got away with it though!

    Manu Tuilagi back for England, in for Twelvetrees.

    Could be a pivotal change.

    France have got to turn up . . . I hope!

    We need to go to Italy with confidence, get early points, quieten crowd then batter them!

    Wales game was the worst game of rugby I've seen but we won. Why the fuck we continually kicked it ill never know

    France missed their kicks and again played pretty badly

    Although a decent performance again by England and that's won them the championship

    We can stop them winning grand slam do I hope we can at least do that

    So far - the worst quality 6 nations for years. Lions will need a lot of practice/games before tests based on this!

    Fuck you Redders


    The difference in overall size and weight in the teams eventually got the better of us. Michalak was fucking hopeless.

    This current French manager seems to be a bit of a lunatic too, can't understand half his decisions.

    Some performance from Wales. Fantastic.

    Opening half was the most exciting 40 of rugby I've seen in a long time.




    We stopped Wales getting a Grand Slam but the effort going into that game ruined the rest of the tournament for us. Reduced to playing Back Row on the wing after another 4 bad injuries today. C'est le vie!



    If Wales can keep most of that squad together or add to it they will be serious contenders in 2015

    Seeing England wilt under the pressure really throws the Lions selections up in the air, not one England player stood out today, and Farrell really fluffed his lines under serious pressure. Halfpenny is going to be the Lions kicker, but who's going in as #10? Biggar has done sweet FA all tournament, Farrell has wilted under pressure so that leaves Laidlaw though I think both Farrell and Laidlaw will go. Going to be interesting who's going to be made captain too, Warburton is in with a shout but he's been immense without the pressure of being captain, Ryan Jones is a candidate too but I don't think he'd be a guaranteed starter so that leaves Robshaw hmmm, some tough decisions for Gatland.

    If Sexton is fit he'll surely be #10?

    I was thinking about him but didn't know how long he was injured for and what kind of form he was in. You think many Irish will make it on the Lions squad sheet?

    In a 37 man squad I reckon we would have:

    Brian O'Driscoll
    Sean O'Brien
    Johnny Sexton
    Cian Healy
    Donnacha Ryan
    Jamie Heaslip (getting grief as a captain but his stats in this 6 Nations are unbelievable)

    Maybes:
    Rory Best
    Mike McCarthy
    Conor Murray (not a big fan myself, he's a poor mans Mike Phillips)
    Rob Kearney (any other season he'd be guarantee but expect Halfpenny, Goode and Hogg to be the 3 fullbacks)


    Depending on recovering from injuries in time:

    Tommy Bowe
    Gordan D'Arcy
    Paul O'Connell - he's a big doubt, 1st game in ages the other day, back is fucked. Fit, Gatland would be a clown not to bring him even without game time.

    Myself, I'd take Kearney over Goode or Hogg. Most teams have stopped kicking Garryowens as he's the best in the world under the high ball. Plus teams have been cute enough rushing him to his right foot but there's not much between him and Halfpenny on form

    Halfpenny is one of the few shoe ins for a starting birth, Kearney should go as understudy though as he's versatile too isn't he? From a Welsh point of view i'm expecting a fair few in, with the certs, fitness pending of course being:

    Leigh Halfpenny
    George North
    Alex Cuthbert
    Jamie Roberts
    Mike Phillips
    Gethin Jenkins
    Adam Jones
    Alun Wyn-Jones
    Sam Warburton
    Ryan Jones

    With the possibles of
    Justin Tipuric
    Jonathan Davies
    Toby Faletau

    I personally wouldn't pick more Welsh than that as there are other deserving players in big positions and 13 if the possibles get picked is more than plenty
