    After being injured forever Jonny Wilkinson made his long awaited comeback to international rugby (not including his dubious inclusion in the last British Lions squad) and his performance was inspired.

    27 points, including a try (that shouldn't have been - even the video referee was getting carried away!), and only two missed kicks, a few missed tackles and a thick lip.

    A great sight - even to a Welsh rugby fan. ;)

    That was some performance. Absolutely loved it; and Robinson scoring 2 tries aswell!!
    Then thre was Andy Robinson saying that he wouldn't have picked Wilkinson, now that is why he was crap. Tindall playd great too on his return and Farrell had a decent first game too

    England 20 - Italy 7

    That was a poor display by England - lacking in the necessary verve and dynamism, very reminiscent of the lacklustre Autumn performances.

    Italy, on the other hand, were magnificent. Could they cause an upset against Scotland at Murrayfield and Wales in Rome?

    Now for Wales v Scotland (already a potential 'Wooden Spoon' decider - note the optimism of a Welsh supporter! ;) )

    It was a poor performance from England. It was good to see Balsaw back in the team but he didnt get the ball and was taken off. Much improvement needed for England before we take on Ireland in a fortnight

    Scotland 21 - Wales 9

    Well where do you start?

    Pathetic? Shambolic? Or just plain bloody terrible?

    The Western Mail is going to be, er... 'fun' on Monday morning.

    It wasnt the best of games i will admit. Wales did have some promising moves but these were the highlights in a very mundane game for both teams.
