Default Six Nations Rugby

Ireland 22 - France 25

The lads gave away too many penalties, but almost stole a victory near the end when they were just a few yards short of a try.

What I have seen so far, since Ireland only just managed to beat Italy, yet almost beat the French (current Grand Slam holders), I'd say the smart money would be on England to win this year.

You don't know how much it hurts to have to admit that!!!

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.
