So -- we've had the first round of matches . . . and I haven't gloated. ;D Hoping the luck of the Irish runs for the duration of the  tournament. ::)

Your predictions for the winner this year?

wales not convincing
england played great
france are always dark horses
italy played well
scotland had a good first half
ireland are always good to watch

don't want to see wales win at all  ;D
obvious choice for me is england

but i'd love to see ireland do it again just for brian o'driscoll. a superior sportsman and a gent.

ground was messy and england played well. won every lineout (i think). but i like watching scotland - they never give up.

as for ireland v england - home match may well go to england.

but overall this could be ireland's year and that would be great for brian o'driscoll. either way, i'm enjoying the games and wales losing :D

You get a break for a week, next match isn't for a fortnight. So  . . . because of the fewer points scored against them, Ireland will sit on the top of the table until then. ;D ;D ;D ;D

If you look at the remaining matches England has the best shot (he said optimistically).

We have Wales at Twickers so have the home advantage - and we are on form. Then Italy in Rome. So that should be 2 our of 2 for us.

Ireland will beat Italy, but then have to play France in Paris. It breaks my heart be I'll be rooting for France. Sorry Irish/Ulster folks.

So England should win the triple crown & the championship.
Title: Re: Six Nations 2014
Post by: 510bhan on February 24, 2014, 12:16:04 PM
Italy might prove a surprise -- they're not the walkover they used to be.

Ooooh. France take advantage of a missed pass and run the length of the pitch for a try. :o  Should have been a Scottish try if the pass hadn't been missed.

France convert, so now lead 14-16.

Title: Re: Six Nations 2014
Post by: 510bhan on March 08, 2014, 06:32:56 PM
I reckon England will have a hard time in Italy, the Italians are terribly underestimated and will give a damned good performance in front of a home crowd. The stats don't truly reflect their talent and effort. :o

He's a really decent fella --not like some. His dad, Frank, is only titchy and has to step on a chair when he wants to speak to a crowd. ;D

Doesn't matter whether he's wearing a provincial, international or Lions shirt -- he's fabulous and he isn't a selfish player either, can take a tackle and can offload when he has to. Brilliant at seeing opportunities and making the most of them -- fast too [not as fast now but still pretty nifty]. :D

Italian penalty close the difference to 10-6.

Italy's scrums are pretty damned effective, even without their monster. :o

Sexton redeems himself with a try worked by Trimble and O'Driscoll.

Will he kick it over?

France score against the post after a good period of Irish defence. Or di he drop it? ??? A knock on missed by the ref.

Got away with it and convert the try.

France 20 -- Ireland 22

15 . . . minutes to go :o

Oh dear, Sexton's taken a collision -- looks out of it. Nothing evil, just unfortunate clash against the monster.

Replaced by Madigan.
