Don't argue with idiots. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with their experience.

My dad is welsh and pretty much forced me into supporting Wales when i started playing rugby so i'll be hoping they win it. Going to be difficult though seeing as the squad has so many injuries.
France have got to be favourites now they've got Philippe Saint-Andre in charge surely?

Big fan of the 6 nations. Not a big fan of 10 of the Saints squad being picked in the Team/Saxons team. We are gonna go downhill now

I love rugby! It helps that Jersey's team is top of the 3rd division and looking good for promotion to the championship.

Nationally i support Italy (i like that blokes camp kicking) and Ireland (for no apparent reason besides that they appeal to me)

I'm welsh, but i have italian relatives, so i always cheer on the Azzuri. Too many plastic fans in wales. At least nobody backs the italians, so i consider myself a real fan.

Hopefully! we're clear at the top of the table by a few points but there're still a few tough games coming up.

Well we won but I wasn't that impressed by us but I suppose it was the first game his team has played together so really it was laying the foundations we can build on and go forward as a team. Scotland impressed me looked could but they still have that problem of not scoring tries. They will come though.

I didn't see it but heard that Scotland were all over us and just kept dropping the ball in the wrong places.

Who was our MoM?

The RBS MotM was Dave Dunderhead (something like that), the scottish number 8. If i had to pick your man of the match, it would be Charlie Hodgson, he did f*** all, but scored the game winning try.

Pretty much. Nobody stood out at all. it's more that Scotland were abysmal than you were good. Tomorrow, you shall watch and learn, when Wales hammer Ireland.
