    Glad Scotland finally got some tries in, hell of a lot of errors again though.

    This Wales France game is far more interesting though.

    France seem different this time around. They look strong.

    Not entirely convinced Biggar grounded the ball for his try. That said, some harsh decisions went against them so probably deserved a bit of luck... Just need Ireland to do one on France; could be a close championship this year. Down to bonus points?

    IU'd be happy for France to win the 6N, they were a wee bit lucky today but play nice rugby and it's a nice change, everyone else is relatively shit anyway.

    Yeah, first decent coach for a while and an incredible wave of young players coming through. It looks really rosy for the next 5 years or so for France.

    Ref should have given about ten penalties to France for biggars constant bitching and if he continued march the team's ten metres down field. He needs to shut up or go and play football instead.

    Haha. It needs to be sorted out. When he intentionally tried to get the penalty by kicking the ball into the French player the penalty should have been reversed.

    Much better so far from England. Somewhat back to near our best.

    Fairly shambolic this week. A lot of it is England playing really well though.

    It will pretty much remove the main benefit of the six nations as a unifying competition as the union is involved and we all come together to scrap it out as nations. It feels inevitable that one of the few cultural staples that I enjoy becomes more fodder for Sky to gouge its customers and rob the UK of a release valve.

    Iím sure that the money on offer is very tempting. But to take it would be unwise. Rugby remains a minority sport and would lose a huge proportion of its audience if it went behind a paywall. It would be commercial suicide.

    Look at cricket if you want to see what happens when it goes behind a payroll.

    England down a man due to self isolation, precautionary.

    I swear video refs constantly give shit decisions against England. Happens several times in the world cup, especially the no try Vs NZ.

    Nah that's a red. Shoulder to head.

    Not intentional but no arms and it's always a straight red.

    A couple of times the ref called England advantage over almost immediately where England had gained no advantage. Then a couple of times in the last ten minutes Wales had never ending advantages.

    Well done England, good to see you winning playing rugby.

    We were too late adjusting the game plan, but post-Gatland was always going to involve frustration - just hope it's temporary, but there's a big part of me that thinks it'll be another decade before we're back to anything like the same level.

    Tuilagiís left arm was up so it looks to me like heís expecting North to slip Sladeís tackle and be further on at the point of impact, the intent to tackle was there. M Canít see any more wrong with that than a playerís face falling on your knee while youíre running

    I thought he was a tad unlucky, but hard to argue really
