I'm off to Cardiff next weekend, we play like that and they'll eat us alive.

Wales didn't look great against Italy. Have to hope Biggar recovers to play against England, they look very one-dimensional with him in the team

Nah that's the thing about Scotland. They'll get a decent result and then be s*** the following match.

They've been improving a lot over the recent years and they'll be well up for it, it'll be a good game I reckon!

Comfortable England win I'd say. Although I'd rather Scotland won.

We've been quite strong in the first three matches and even the defeat to France had many positives.

It's the managers last few matches before he heads off to Montpellier and this squad seems to be doing their utmost to give him a good send off.

Love the ref talking to England players about the Italian tactics.

Brutal last minute of the first half.

The Italian kicker has been so awful I expected him to hit the post.
