I really hope that they (France) don’t/can’t get their act together in the next fortnight, really would like a nice away win to keep away from the bottom of the league, back to pro14 this weekend and an emptyish Murrayfield.

Sympathies Martin
While 'we' visit the cauldron of the Millenium Stadium and start of game antics etc. It will be a stern test.

What I like is that all this is on free to air TV, so we can scream and shout without paying gougers like Murdoch and BT for the pleasure.

I am curious to see how England handle the anti climax of Italy at Twickenham.

Which may give you false hope eh Martin?

I think you should be looking for odds for a record score/try count

Read recently that Southern Hemisphere nations/teams are looking to come up with money making tournaments that will be ppv, article reckons if things go ahead RWC and 6 Nations could be dragged into the same shite ss £signs appear.

Back to pro 14 action Friday and a nearly empty (and quiet ) Murrayfield.

I had expected a more adventurous game from England but I think this game proves they are still a work in progress. Pleasant to hear the generous comments from Owen Farrell and Eddie Jones after the game.

As an England fan you just have to suck this one up

I thought the turning point was Sinkler losing it which seemed to rattle the rest of the team

I said to my co-watcher at that point that I thought Wales would go on to win and so it proved

Not the best game in terms of skills on display but great tense entertainment from start to finish

Well done Wales
