Yeah, but i don't think he's cut out for defence, i'd rather play him instead of Monye on the wing, Cueto was basically covering both wings all game!


Nah Monye was really quite good.

I think that the backline was perfect except for Toby Flood who I still think is shit.

England did NOT win today. Alun-Wyun Jones lost. 17 points when we was off. It was literally neck and neck and it would've been level a wales win if he didn't trip over , unessiaryly (very much sp, been out watching the game so......booze). Either way, not (all that) worried

Watched Monye every week for 5 years at quins. He is a game breaker. Even if he's off form I would never drop him. Best outside back i've ever seen an i've watched a lot of rugby. IMO we had our strongest side for a while out against wales.

A good win yesterday. We should make it 2 from 2 and maybe more if we keep momentum.

Agreed. I haven't seen England look like such a professional team in a very long time. Danny Care and Tait are exactly what we needed in the back line. They put a bit of flair back into the backline and that's why England seem so much more dynamic now.

Sorry, but Danny Care made far too many mistakes in that game, although his break was very good, his hesitation at the breakdown made it far too clear for the defence, and putting the ball in through the second row is a schoolboy error.

But i'm agreed about Flood, we need Flutey back

EDIT: But can't argue it was a good, strong side.

After a tentative opening the game got going in the second half (the amount lost from losing the opening game is much more than the amount won by winning the opening game in a 6N campaign.) England looked more like the side they should be; Borthwick had a good game, maybe he's one of those players who needs the negativity to spur him on? And he was unlucky to give away the penalty for diving over the ruck in the second half...

Haskell and Wilkinson looked good after their transfers to france, I've always been a Haskell fan but his game appears to have improved thanks to his french move (unfortunately for this wasps fan!)

We need to get rid of Tim Payne ASAP though; he is an absolute liability. Whenever I see an england/wasps scrum with himin I'm just waiting for it to collapse or a penalty given to the other team. Not to mention he is useless outside the scrum and we may as well have 14 players on the pitch.

Hipkiss instead of Tait? I'm gonna say no. Tait brings an injection of pace and creativity into the side, going back to Hipkiss (or worse yet a Hipkiss-Hape partnership) you're going to have a monotonous easy to read game and we'll end up getting punished for it. I agree Danny Care didn't have the best of games though.

As for Monye on the wing, he's a damn sight better there than at full back! Tom Varndell should be in the elite squad instead of the saxons though, not necessairly starting (since he's not very good at defending) but he can get you tries when you need them.

Something that he can work on though unlike the various other scrum halfs who play a solid game but never actually do anything that could produce a try or put pressure on the opposition.

France were decent today. In the first half they could have easily gotten two more tries. Scotland defended very well and at times they too looked dangerous. And Frances backs are ****ing ginormous. I think Scotland have a chance of beating Wales and finishing fourth.

France were weak defensively though, hopefully we can capitalise on that next week. And hopefully Rougerie is injured too because our weakest spot would arguably be the undecided position of wing with Trimble or Earls. Neither of them are world renound for big hits so it would be a great help.
#95
Quite gutted for Scotland, first time in a while they looked dangerous attacking.


As for the Wales game, it was shocking. England looked ok, but I cannot see them even winning the six nations, let alone going all the way for a Grand Slam. Looking at France today, I would say that they've already got it in the bag if they tighten the defence a bit.

I didnt watch the Ireland game much - so can't really comment on them. Scotland should really just stick to defending like gods and Wales really need to get themselves sorted because it was a case of Wales losing badly than England winning.

yes, admittedly you guys were absolutely shite but that doesn't change the fact that we played really well in some areas.

I hope the Saints players get more playing time, only english team in the Heineken Cup, 3rd in the premiership (game in hand over Leicester, too), yet Johnson seems to hate the idea of any Saints players getting time on the pitch. Lawes is one of the best young forwards in England, Foden/Ashton is the best attacking partnership in England, yet they get no game time.

France looked impressive today, but should've and could've won by more if it wasn't for mistakes and an eventually sturdyscot defence. Still not utterly convinced by Bastorthingy even though he played well, Rougire looked the balls when he was on as well.

Sorry for the raging comment ealier (see england did not win...lol) I had drowned my sorrows by then. But I still stand by it, 17 points in 10 mintues crippled us.

Well, England played better than normally i guess (can't remember how they did in the autumn) - Wales really need to sort out their ****-eyed lineouts and stupid mistakes in the breakdown.

Next week?

>Wales (although Patterson is a fecking hero, he's going to be a pain.)
Although if we see another performance like that from Wales - i can see it being Chris Patterson 12 - 9 Wales) ,
>England (no questions there) ,
>Ireland (solid all-round, they need a good start, If the French get an early score, then its their game).

I do love Chris Patterson. He would be the most awesome thing ever if he was Irish and his name was Ronan.

Terrible, terrible performance by Ireland. Tomás O' Leary is a joke he takes about 20 minutes to pass the ball. Isaac Boss should be starting with Reddan on the bench. I'd say Flannery will be banned for the rest of the 6N for that trip. Sexton should start the rest of the games. ROG has absolutely no defence. Literally none.

France for the grand slam and now after that performance I'm not sure if Ireland will finish 2nd. England have a very good chance of finishing 2nd this year.
#105
Great game by France, there's something about the Irish team I don't like, maybe its that there seems to be an incident in every game concerning them. I'd love to see Italy yet a win in the tournament, I think they're such a passionate side and really deserve a win after being the laughing stock of the 6 nations.

Oh my, plus a billion and some. The most intense game I've ever watch, but since Lawson got sinbinned I sorta knew Wales were going to win. No Idea really, but it happened, Scotland very much derevered to win though, mostly because of the horrid Welsh defending.

France vs Ireland was an anticlimax though, total domination by the french, but again they didn't really capitalize on it, shoud've been alot more.

I didn't wake up in time for Super 14, glaqd it's back on though, brillant rugby Hope you're enjoying Six nations !!!

Good games yesterday hoping today will bring more good rugby!

I feel sorry for Scotland, it could have been very different if Patterson and Evans didn't get injured in the 1st half. I think you underestimate scotland at your peril in this tournament, in recent history the big 4 have been assured a win over scotland and italy (ignoring something drastic) but it looks like that's changing.

I don't know what I'm going to do with my weekends during the break.

The more I see the supposed "trip" on Lee Byrne, and the consequent sin-binning, the more I agree with Andy Robinson. An obvious effort to charge the kick down was made, but it was still so marginal anyway I think.

Italy were so unlucky today. I think the man of the match should have gone to Bergamasco. Apart from him, Italy wouldn't have had a chance at all, cos none of the others can kick a ball. His style isn't even normal but he managed to kick more than Wilko. Italy need to take this confidence into any games they have in the future.

I agree. Their nothing-to-lose attitude gave them a lot of boost, and they had so many great runs, which just almost always were ruined by sloppy pop-passes. I think they should have won really, England really got on my nerves today.

I always want Italy to do well, and at the start I wanted England to win, but I realised that actually I'd love for Italy to win, and after I made that decision, I realised how bad England were playing. Armitage has the shape to be smashing people left right and centre, yet he hardly ever gets many tackles at all, especially in todays game. It was woeful to watch, but really I wanted a reason for Italy to play well, and they did right until England got that try.

One worry I have about the Italy team is they have that fat number 1 Salvatore Perugini. Every time I've watched Italy play he seems fairly useless, he's slow. If Italy could just get someone strong enough for the prop position, but was faster, I think their game might get better. I don't watch union enough to know loads, so maybe behind the scenes he is doing loads, or maybe a slow prop is normal, but from what I've seen, he looks bad.

+1!

Such an insipring film. I was meant to play a match the day after I saw that but unfortunately it was cancelled on the day. A pity, I was unbelievably pumped up!


Thom Evans' surgery went well by the way and he looks set to make a full recovery. Paterson will also miss the rest of the 6 Nations as will Rory Lamont apparently.

Dan Parks was soooo good! Far better than that idiot Godman (really can't stand him). Hopefully We'll be seeing more of him in the rest of this season's tests!


I also agree, the "Flannery death kick" was horrific!

France to win the tournament this year.
