    That would suggest Wales are certs to beat Scotland at Murrayfield - a match which I would think could well be the closest of the whole tournament.

    Wales managed two unconvincing wins against the poorest sides in the championship .
    Let’s hope that they step up there performance against the rest of the 6 nations teams .

    Of course we will. It’s a known fact we start slowly and get better. Remember it was essentially Wales B against the Italians. You will have noted how quickly we settled down once Alun Wyn came on

    Worst French performance at Twickenham ever? Everyone has gone on about England's kicking but when france play huget at fullback and he cant be arsed to play in position its going to be hard work on them

    Yes agreed we do usually start slowly. Trouble is if we do so in Cardiff in a fortnight England will be out of sight by half time.

    And they sure as Hell won’t be giving away loads of gift wrapped tries for us to touch down in the second half like the French did in Paris.

    PS This is fact, not some pro English jingoistic drum beating.

    I meant we start tournaments slowly. By the time England rock up, the boys will be ready. Hopefully we won’t give England all that space for May to run in to. The guy is genuinely electric. Be interesting to see how North Handles him

    Yes but in all seriousness we do tend to start many of our games slowly but usually come good and win our games especially in the second half and the last quarter.
    In our remaining games we need to be at our best from the kick off if we are to challenge England and Ireland at home and also Scotland away.

    Sinkler is a tool but I can’t recall an international prop with hands like his. Some of his soft handed passes against Ireland were sublime - like a rugby league prop. A front row player with skills like that is a real handful, set up a great try today as well with a quality pass.

    England’s record in Cardiff is pretty decent of recent times

    From memory I think Ireland have also done fairly well.

    Cardiff is a cauldron and an intimidating atmosphere, but Wales will need top class performances (as well as the passion of the crowd) to shackle their illustrious visitors in this tournament. Scotland at Murrayfield is never an easy game either.

    If Wales do somehow prevail and win the Six Nations then they will have to beat two of the best rugby sides in the world. Despite what Baldrick thinks of me as a closet English fan (I know he don’t really mean it, and I certainly ain’t) I really hope they do beat the best in the Six Nations and go on to win the World Cup.

    Despite my passsion for Wales, my astute financial brain that has amassed me a fortune tells me that all my liquid assets of £194.55 should be put on England, and may God forgive me and Baldrick save my soul.

    Someone asked earlier if Farrell swung a punch at one of the French players around the 60 minute mark.
    Had a quick look earlier this morning and no he didn’t he was knocking the French players arm off him to stop him holding on to him.

    Scotland could have beaten Ireland, (Hogg being taken out of the game by POM was to my mind what cost us as it disrupted the defensive cohesion of the back 3). Have in recent years fudgeed up against Wales when they should have won, and the way England are going it'll be a hell of an upset if anyone wins at Twickenham and France in Paris is a lottery. So I'm really not that optimistic for the last 3 matches.

    We do have some young awesome talent just breaking through (G Horne, Darcy Graham, Kinghorn, Ritchie, Matt Fagerson among others) but they need time to mature and gain experience. In the meantime we've just got such an unbelievably long injury list. Just hope we've got most of them back for the RWC.

    Ireland to win the tournament after a rabble rousing welsh win over England. You heard it here first :)

    Wales will increase their chances of a victory over England if they can bring Barry John or Phil Bennet out of retirement. Alongwith Gareth Edwards, and JPR or JJ Williams etc.

    Some of you will have no idea who I'm talking about.

    Bonus points and points difference means England have one hand on the championship. The Wales game is for the Grand Slam.
