    No reason to be rude. A simple no would have been enough.

    Love rugby. Haven't seen a good match in months though. I've stepped down in cable service...and we don't get much over here.

    i'm off all weekend so between the three six nations games and celtic travelling to aberdeen, unfortunately i couldn't get a ticket, i've got plenty of sport to watch on tv this weekend. oh and going to celtic park tonight for celtic v hearts so five live matches in five days. :D

    i don't really watch too much rugby myself, tend to only watch the 6 nations and the world cup. my girlfriend insisted we go to glasgow v edinburgh last year though and i really enjoyed it so i'm trying to watch more.

    Rugby is a hooligan sport played by gentlemen, soccer is a gentleman's game played by hooligans.

    so if you're ever in that area, check it out

    Good start for England, might just be enough to get them 3rd place :)

    Shame I missed the game as I was travelling back from the footie.


    Still, the big game of the tournament is on Saturday with Ireland travelling to Paris.

    Should be a good game and you would think it's likely to decide the outcome of the title. I hope Ireland win, but France at home might just sneak it.


    PS I see that Andy Robinson has refused to let Wales close the roof on the Millenium Stadium this weekend, I guess he's hoping for bad weather to try & even the odds.

    Well, unbelievable finish to the Wales v Scotland game. I thought that Scotland were going to hang on for the draw but I guess a two man advantage was just too much in the end.

    France were efficient, if not spectacular, against Ireland.
    However, based on other results (especially England’s tame showing in Italy) I can’t see anyone else giving them a game this season.
    Probably the best chance would be to wind them up & hope their discipline goes.
