Not sure about Goode in as England's fly half. Might as well just play with 10 men, he doesn't ship the ball anywhere near enough, just boots it straight away :?

God I love International Rugby, it always entertains. Always.

I watched a club match recently for he first time in ages, it was the Heineken Cup. Ospreys vs.... somebody or other. It was bloody entertaining and I recognised alot of players on the Ospreys team.

Anyway, looking forward to it, though I've no idea what the form is of the teams.
I still love you.

Whilst I would love England to win, I'll probably stick with Wales again

Probably something to do with the Osprey's lineup being practically identical to the Wales setup! :)

International rugby is my favourite spectator sport, all the home nations clashing? Yes please! The inclusion of the frogs and Italians only serves to make it a sweet, sweet competition.

It's a pity that the Footie did away with their home nations thingy, the European Cup is fun but not as fun as the Six Nations imo.

I fully expect Wales to crash and burn, as they seem to have developed a habit of doing after a previously successful season. Ireland and France are always decent bets, wouldn't rule England out either, they have some quality backs coming through.

I hope that Italy and Scotland improve, of course. Just not at the expense of Cymru.

Viva le Galles! :)

What in god's name is Hadden thinking? I'll tell you what he's thinking! He's thinking "Durr lets totally ignore the Glasgow players and play a full Edinburgh team durr"

GODMAN AGAIN!!! FOR THE FINAL TIME, GODMAN IS A FUCKING DISASTER!!!

Not only that though, but he's playing Godman instead of Paterson. Wtf?! Meanwhile, he hasn't even put onto the team Evans, who is the top try scorer in the Magners League. He hasn't put in Parks, who is also in top form.

He's fielding a very controversial team and alot of people will be coming into this game with high skepticism. We of course might end up eating our hats, but i very much doubt it. To me this team looks weak.

It seems Hadden only needs to win two games to get a new contract, otherwise he'll be replaced. Two games ffs. That is dismaly low, and it's about time the SRU took the attitude of playing to win rather than playing our best.

SRU. Pfffft. Might as well be called ERU.

I wish I was Italian, I could easily get into the side as a scrum half if Bergamasco was their starting choice ¬.¬

Good lord that was a pretty pants display of Rubgy by both Italy and England. Watching France and Ireland and it's far far better. COME ON IRELAND!
I still love you.

Jaysus, that England Italy game was woeful. Two woeful sides doing woeful things with the ball. If that game was a horse someone would have come out and taken a shotgun to it's head at half time. If Italy get a decent scrum half between now and next week there forwards are going to bash the shit out of some poor unfortunates, they'll still lose, but they'll do some damage in the process. Wales will win tomorrow, then they'll win against England easily and will be off to a flying start.

The Ireland France game was the complete opposite of the English Italian game. Decent running, line breaks, the gain line being made. The only bad point was the dodgy Irish kicking. I don't know why you'd want to give the French back three that amount of ball, in the first place, and then space with no chasers. Still, Ireland win through sheer tenacity. Something we've not seen from an Irish jersey in a long time under Eddie O'Sullivan. Kidney's success seems to have followed him from Munster. And he said something very interesting in the post match interviews, saying how important it was that the provinces are working together. Hinting that there was discord previously. But great Irish performance, a great French performance despite them losing, and a great match.

G'WAN IRELAND!!!

Though i will be supportive of my team, the final conclusion is that Scotland are going to get humped, many a critic are going to be proven right, and Hadden is going to be looking at the barrel end of a shotgun.

Another year, another group of misfits performing the same errors we've been performing for the last 5 years. It's good to know nothing changes.
