    Feel sick. Ball in hand 30 seconds from a grand slam.

    I would much rather France win it. Nothing against Wales but I feel France have been the much better team over the last few weeks. I feel most of the Wales wins have relied a lot on the referees.

    Nah, Wales deserved to be in this position and I'll be happy enough if either team get it. Ireland's red card was deserved, Scotland's too. And from then on they put everything they had into every last inch, including today.

    France is probably going to the best team in the world if they came keep it together but as Trowel said, they were 30 seconds away from a GS.

    This competition is incredibly tight with France and England* the best teams but only by a sliver and the rest (except Italy unfortunately) rebuilding very nicely. Fuck knows what happens next in this thing.


    *I think they'll find their way again pretty soon

    You are picking and choosing certain refereeing decisions. They were a hell of a lot more dodgy calls then the two red cards. Including Scotland's try that would have happened if not for Welsh dirty play. I think in every game except Italy Wales were not the best team..they just scraped through each win with the help of some dodgy dodgy decisions.

    Again nothing against Wales. I'm far too old for pointless prejudice against teams. I have no love for France but they by far deserve this title.

    Surely it's now got to the point where someone other than Italy deserves a chance at the big time. The hope was that being in 6N would raise their level but it's just not happening. I'd like to see some form of promotion or relegation with other European teams. Either direct or via a playoff. Just seems increasingly ridiculous not to give countries like Georgia and Romania a fair chance at growing the sport.

    How much money will Georgia or Romania bring to the table though, Italy is always going to be the more lucrative market. now that private equity is involved in 6N and Italy are stakeholders, there wonít be any change to the format soon either

    Georgia are rubbish. They wouldnít bring anything more to the table than the Italians do. There is a massive gulf between the original 5 nations and the other teams in Europe. There was talk at one point of adding South Africa, as they arenít going to be in Super Rugby any more, and that would really spice things up. The fact that the SA Super Rugby sides will join the Pro14 suggests this might be put on the table, but who knows?

    Mixed feelings about Wales. They gave it their all, and itís horrible to have the glory snatched from you at the very end, oh how well a Scottish fan knows. And itís hardly their fault if other teams had players sent off against them. But for me, France were the better team yesterday, and Wales canít deny that they have benefitted from a lot of good fortune this year. As a supporter of a team which hasnít had a sniff of a title in the 6N era, I donít think a Grand Slam would have been the right result for a Wales team who have frequently been mediocre. Plus they are probably going to win the title anyway, so I refuse to feel too sorry for them.
