    As there isn't one up here and France Italy are playing at the moment I thought I'd make one!

    Post thoughts, predictions and all that good stuff on this years competition.

    COME ON WALESS!!! :D

    Goftrey, I'm Irish, so my hopes for the outcome of tomorrow's match between our respective countries will obviously, differ somewhat from yours.......

    Damn, I was hoping for a 'Little Big Horn', with the Natives winning this time.

    Toss those Mother Earth killers out!! :p

    23-21... Good old Leigh... :D

    I have to admit though Bradley Davies should've been off, that tackle was very nasty...

    Well done and congratulations on a well-fought win.

    Yeah, I stole an occasional peek (at strategic moments) while perusing (the actual real, crackling, crisp, paper) The Observer this afternoon. Hmmmm. What can I say? Ireland's treatment of Gatland (granted, completely idiotic and lacking in grace, courtesy, wit, or ordinary common decency) still evidently rankles and I get a strong sense that Wales are out to prove a point (guys, you've proven it, again and again and again in recent times) whenever they play Ireland.

    Basically, Wales took their chances. We didn't to the same extent (and I won't even attempt to seek refuge in the fact that we were lacking our talisman & captain - Brian O'Driscoll - through injury; eventually, we'll have to learn to live - and play - without him.)

    Yeah, but what a close game. No denying England have improved significantly under the guidance of Stuart Lancaster.

    My boys' turn tomorrow though, could be an interesting game :)

    Oh ye of little faith. We gave Wales a good fright last week and it's not a bad team picked to play tomorrow.
