    I agree with you about the Wales win Changing of the guard do you reckon?
    Yeah I know what you and Johnny are saying and know Im probably in the minority. Just think they could have stuck it in the corner and stuck it up their jumpers for 2 mins.

    Maybe changing of the guard for Wales. I like Biggar but Patchell transforms our back line. I reckon hed make a great 12 too

    Interesting opening weekend. Going to be interesting to see how France pick themselves up but I think they will enough to see off Scotland. England-Wales will be a close one while don't be surprised to see Italy give us a few problems, but anything other then a win is unacceptable.

    Next matches:

    Sat 10th Feb-
    Ireland vs Italy
    England vs Wales

    Sun 11th Feb-
    Scotland vs France

    I can see Scotland bouncing back for this one. Ireland should ease past Italy. England Wales is a tough one, but with home advantage I reckon England.

    Yeah, that was a bad one
    I hope you bounce back against France. Got a bit of a worry that Scotland may save it all up until they play their lovely neighbours England.

    Distinctly forward pass for Italian try. Good clinical performance by Ireland though Italy really not up to much today.

    Not sure what the TMO official was looking at but that 2nd try for Italy was assisted by another clear cut forward pass. Guinness must be flowing early for the officials!

    Finished 56 - 19 to Ireland who probably be a little disappointed with the concession of 3 tries 2nd half albeit it with some help from poor officiating.

    Gutted Halfpenny is missing for this, his kicking last week was sublime.

    Big miss imo.

    I think Wales should really be taking points instead of gambling for tries at this stage of proceedings.

    Great point QV16. Particularly when They cough up possession from the line-out and chance passes!!

    Tough game. Not a classic by any means, maybe coz of the conditions.
    Think Wales's game management was a bit off and England looked a bit gassed. Good defence though.

    Good tough win there from England, Wales left it to late to show any urgency.

    Shock horror game officials get game wrong even using state of the art technology.

    TMO decision ends up being decisive.

    Unfairly.

    Wales didn't quite get it going there till the end, both sides didn't play great going forward for any concerted period

    As for the TMO decision, well that was shocking, clearly a try & a score taken from us which was a game changer. Baffled by that, they didn't really seem to use the time afforded to them in making that decision.

    Gutted all in all but Wales at least have some depth developing with the team & can look forward

    Shocking TMO decision today. Usually check different angles a few times today he watched it twice, maybe a third time to come to wring decision.

    Not saying wed have won, but that just leaves a bitter taste in the mouth

    Much needed win for Scotland. France their worst enemy again with needless penalties.
    I'm not sure who wins in two weeks time when England visit Murrayfield. Got a feeling it's gonna be a humdinger.

    I should have said, it was! Probably the best game so far this 6 Nations. Just need Salah to score a couple more for my Fantasy Football score and it will have been a perfect weekend for me too.
