6 Nations

England will be a sterner test to Ireland this year but I expect us to squeeze it. My prediction, no grand slam but Ireland to win the championship.

Ireland
France
England
Wales
Scotland
Italy
Butts

Wales
France
Ireland
England
Scotland
Italy

On BBC HD now, come on Ireland, prove you are the best in the world.
Mol

23-8 HT, should be 23-3 but Ireland gave away a self inflicted try a minute ago.
Pond Life

Ireland are thumping world rugby giants Italy.
Mol

Comfortable, Ireland never stretched themselves second half as there are bigger games to come. All our substitutions broke our rhythm, spoiled the game as a spectacle but perfectly sensible.
Mol

I'd gladly put a bullet in Brian Moore. Butt's prediction already looking forlorn.
Mol

Wales look awful, England not much better.
Mol

Great try Wales.
Mol

Then suicide. Seen nothing in these two to concern Ireland or France on this form.

I was watching this on BBC. Probably the worst sporting coverage I've ever witnessed. A multitude of rapidly interchanging, bizarre camera angles, banana-type zoom shots and the like - I didn't know what the heck I was watching. I was genuinely confused. And at several points, I felt sea-sick, such was the see-sawing motion of the image.

The idea that the average spectator's mental mapping of any game is based on the premise that they stayed viewing from the same spot for intervals of several seconds, without bouncing from one end of the stadium to the other, and swooping from ground level to an elevation of approximately a 100 yards, seemed to be completely an alien concept to the BBC director involved.

And what idiot that it was a good idea to pan the camera back, so that it seemed that a penalty being kicked from 40 yards out, appeared that you were watching it a 100 yards behind the penalty taker? It was like viewing through a telescope from the wrong end.

And don't get me started on those experimental law variations, which have resulted in an unflattering display of aerial ping-pong.

And not forgetting the second-in-line-to-the-throne, Billy-boy, cheering when the Taffs scored. It was like he had never heard of subjugation of the inferior. At least the ginger lad with him had some sense of history.

I'm going to have to have a stiff word with Auntie to sort out some much needed constitutional changes.

I watched a bit of Ireland v Italy this afternoon. I'd have asked for my money back if I'd been a paying punter. It was worse than Stoke v Sunderland.

Ireland kick off.
Italian bloke catches ball and kicks back
Irish bloke catches ball and kicks back
Italian bloke cathes ball and kicks back
Irish bloke catches ball and it bounces into touch
Line out
Italian bloke catches ball and kicks
Irish bloke catches ball and miskicks
Italian bloke catches ball
Most of the large units join a melee on the ground
Referee awards penalty
Italian bloke kicks penalty

return to start

Am I missing something?

That is the ELV (experimental law variations) that came in about 18 months or so back, in its purist form.

A chap (French-extraction) at Rotary was excitedly telling me that he and a Taff friend had managed to bag tickets for the Wales-France game at the end of the month. They could only get of the cheapest tickets, mind. 70 notes each.

I did my best to try and not urinate on his pomme-frites.

70 pounds to watch a ball being kicked up and down a field does strike me that someone is taking the mickey charging that much to watch that drivel.
fartcatcher

They need to change the rules to encourage people to score tries.

Just the small matter of England vs Ireland today.

Joy for Italy, woe for Scotland.

*poor result for us English, obviously*
Carp

Disappointed, not unexpected, and a fair result.
bearing

Glad they lost, there's no bloody excitement in our play.
Carp

Agree about the excitement factor. We have at least another 3 - 4 years of this until any chance of decent new blood in numbers coming through.
Carp

* but us Irish enjoyed it *
fartcatcher

Rugby's the only game where i don't actually care whether England win or lose. We seem to be playing Rugby's equivalent of the long ball game and deserve what we get imo.

In England - still by and large a game played by public schoolboys, except they're all on hgh now.

Hope Ireland or France win. There is a passion about the way they play that we can't even approach.

You're as bad as Molski, he's always pretending to be Irish.

He even tries to put on an accent!

*not a very good one either*
Mol

Why have Ireland replaced O'Gara with this muppet Sexton, he almost cost us the game against England and he's doing the same today.
Pond Life

Some fella stretchered off in this England Scotland game. 2 collided one walked, one carried.

Good game, we saw a fantastic Scottish kick.


12-15 England
Mol

Ireland won, of course. Scotland should be leading this game. They've let a lot of chances go and I think England will steal it late on.
fartcatcher

15-15 no tries.

the 10 minutes i watched were dull as a lettuce sandwich
Pond Life

The last bit had lots of excitement i thought. The bit that i saw.

Conversation with PLís 5 year old son George, while watching the Calcutta Cup on Saturday.

George: Who are those 2 teams TG?

TG: The ones in blue are Scotland and the ones in white are England.

George: Oh, well it doesnít matter who wins that match then because we support both of those teams in this house.



*glows*


Acceptance from a 5-year old - lifeís highest honour.
