Isn't it quiet in here about the rugby.
Oh yes England have won all the matches so far and the Triple crown.

After the World Cup, England couldn't do much else but improve. Remind me again of when they dropped out........

That is history the next lesson is geography.
Remind me again what was the score when we played Scotland in this years 6 Nations
Scotland should have played like they did today, when they met England at the beginning of the competition it would have made for a better game

This is what happens when you have an Aussie coach and a Kiwi captain {-)

I actually thought Scotland played really well today, it was a good game to watch not because their winning means England won the 6 Nations. They matched the French for plays and physicality, it will be interesting to see if their improvement carries on in New Zealand later in the year.

Still light years behind the SH teams though.... Bet the All Blacks, Wallabies & Boks are wetting themselves with laughter at this years 6N %% %% %% 
They most certainly are not worried!!!

England... Getting there 2 or 3 years.. Potential world beaters....
Wales... Predictable...  Need to realise that defence only won't win games. Need "X factor" players (Matthew Morgan, Hallam Amos etc??)
France... A good team of individuals that need to gel as a team..
Ireland... Off the boil this year. Retirements & injuries have hurt them.
Scotland... Getting there. Some good players but suffer from limited strength in depth if injuries hit.
Italy.... Will probably implode when Parisse retires..

The U20s have been much more entertaining With Wales on for the Grand Slam next weekend..

Cymru am byth.
