England 17 - France 9
As I had mentioned in my previous post, I felt that England looked the in form team this year.
3 wins in 3 games.
I have to admit that the 6 Nations championsip is all but over.
Scotland 18 - Ireland 21
Ireland almost threw this game away. They ran in 3 tries, but gave away so many penalties that they almost let the Scots kick their way to victory.
They did the same in the previous game with France; outscored the opposition in tries, but a stupid lack of discipline saw them squander possession by giving away very kickable penalties.
But, if Ireland can beat Wales in Cardiff in 2 weeks time, that may well set up a final must win game against England on March 19th in Dublin for the "Triple Crown" and possibly the championship.
Oh boy!!! The old black dog is getting to be such an optimist (perhaps fantasist) in his old age. Ah well...where there is life, there is hope.
That's the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she/he sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it's impossible to ever see the end.
The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink and somebody to love you.
