    Well, today is the day!

    I have planned my diary very badly, will miss 2nd half of our match later as my brother's birthday meal is happening, got Christmas lunch which we couldn't have any earlier next week, so will miss the first half, and will miss the final day entirely as I will be in Krakow.

    Oh well, should be interesting season, enjoy everyone.

    Well, blooming heck! Why on earth did the key words not bring it up on the searches!

    Thanks for blending the threads, mods. Glad?

    I enjoyed last nights match, France were penalised for their sloppiness, but when they got their act together, it was pretty compelling. Despite the score and some daft penalties, Italy were quite defensive.

    Hope it is a good match PP, although I am definitely behind the boys in green . As you said, the thing about rugby is that all supporters are there for the game itself, and really appreciate good competitive play.

    Has Sexton put the wrong boots on?

    I'm exhausted! Hopefully the simple kicks Jonny Sexton has had to do will give home some encouragement for the second half & his back holding out will help him also

    What a match

    OMG!!!

    Ireland nearly lost it in the end, if they had not intercepted that pass it could have been a different story.

    Oh, hell! That last try broke my heart.

    Good, exciting game, though!

    I'm 'listening' whilst on here and was wondering the same thing!
    Time for England to respond if they can ...

    Wow, what a game! Brilliant, Scotland!


    Of course, Inverdale and Johnson decide to query some of Nigel Owen's decisions!

    I!!!8217;d query the one when he said 'play on' after the England 8 held the Scottish player down tpby hand around his throat and full weight on it.

    No excuses. No blame. Scotland were outstanding! Much deserved congratulations to them.

    If they could play like that in every game, there isn't a team in this competition they couldn't beat.

    I think the odds must now clearly be on for an Ireland Championship... and it being wide open for the middle positions now.

    I saw the first half and left thinking that if Scotland lost based on that performance, England would have had to have an amazing second, which based on the first half, was looking unlikely. Scotland were simply outstanding. I was highly amused as the showing of the last time they scored a try in the Calcutta Cup, 14 years ago, and they score 3 in 40 mins, way to go!

    Looks increasingly likely we will win, hopefully the Grand Slam & Triple Crown. Shame I will be away that weekend
