Even with BOD on our side...


Wales finally put in a proper performance on Friday against a shambolicly inept French side. Playing away from home seems to be too much trouble for France, especially at an intimidating place like the Millenium Stadium. Wales beat them up in the first 10 minutes, and then watched them implode. Whilst France are not out of the championship race, the wooden spoon isn’t impossible either.

Scotland meanwhile, dug deep and got  a well earned victory with a last minute drop goal in Rome. They don’t quite look like they could beat the All Blacks yet, but a win for them is like gold dust. After a dire first half, both teams picked up the pace and there was some good rugby played. Italy are up against it now, with both Ireland and England looking for big victories in their remaining two matches to improve their points differences.

Finally, England burst Ireland’s grand slam bubble with a hard fought win at Twickenham. There was very little between the sides, but England had better chances than Ireland did, played hard disciplined rugby, and kept the championship alive with this victory. No shame losing a close game like that.  But , to look on the brightside, we are top of the table with a good points difference, and we have winless Italy and make it up as you go along France left to play. Don’t write Ireland off just yet!
