    Skill? Witchcraft if you ask me.

    BTW - cheese? In a hat? What a preposterous concept.

    Great games today and whether the comeback was on or not, to be able to dig out a result is what [potential] champions are made of

    Let's see how England v France turns out now

    Cannot wait for Ireland v Wales now

    You and me both :thumbsup:

    I think it will be a very tight, low scoring game. I just hope we don't blow it this time :lease:

    Well played England :smashin:

    Dont think France have given up that quickly since the German Panzers arrived in 1940.

    Hope Wales' first team can see off the Irish underachievers :rolleyes:

    Just got back from Twickenham, had to carry on celebrating after that first-half performance :clap::clap:

    Agree that it makes some of the mistakes against Ireland (and Wales) especially frustrating, but let's hope we can build on that performance for next weekend and beyond.

    I am all for the Irish next week to put the cocky little Welsh dragon to the sword.They should win as on paper they have the better team. Wales were woeful last saturday and few held their hands up for a Lions place in my book.I dont rate them except maybe their fb who looks useful.On this weekends performances, England's was by far the best.I always felt that with patience and diligence they would get better and better.Jonno must maintain the bulk of his squad going into next year.There are some real candidates now for the Lions the bulk of which should be English, followed by Irish , Scottish and maybe a Welshman or two

    England played very well. Congratulations on that bit - looks like you took my advice and got Bing Crosby on your coaching staff (accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, don't dive all over Mr Inbetween, etc...). Who needs free kicks everywhere when you approach the game right, eh?

    As for the trolling - it's really not necessary. Wales were awful and you'd be hard pushed to find a cocky Welsh Dragon - despite us being above England and still in with a shout at the championship whilst we're having a poor six nations (for the record, I can't see us winning the championship from this position at all).

    Next week's going to be interesting.

    Slowly building up for the world cup.We always seem to do it.As for the six nations i think its going to be close,as both the welsh and irish are a bit ropey at the moment.Its been a wierd tornement so far.

    For the last weekend I'd predict Ireland for the Championship, Wales for the Triple Crown, Scotland for the Calcutta Cup and England for a load of yellow cards. ;)

    Why can i see the calcutta cup staying with us Scots this weekend.

    We're making progress and this looks like it could be the match that everything clicks to together.

    Felt so sorry for Stephen Jones at the end. O'Driscoll played himself into the Lions team this championship, a great inspiring performance.

    Congrats to Ireland. Long time coming

    The ref did his best to keep Wales in it ;) but the best team won out eventually. I was watching in a pub in Dublin and the last 5 minutes were the most nerve-wrecking I can remember.

    Delighted we won. :clap:

    Well done also to Bernard Dunne on becoming world champion last night too.
