After a slow opening day of six nations rugby i was starting to wonder if we would actually see any real rugby.
Then my wish was granted, ireland vs wales !!!
what a fantastic game, and a well deserved win for wales.
ireland played well and looked dangerous on occasions but there seemed to be a lack of coordination.
Wales look good and i believe they have much more to show, great tries from george north delivered through great strength and player awareness.
I cant wait for the grandslam decider wales vs france at the millenium stadium. (have got tickets)

Agree it was a great game to watch cymru and that Wales deserved to win, though I was backing Ireland. But there do seem to be a few weaknesses the Welsh will have to iron out, which is why Ireland were in the lead till the last minute.

If we can get priestlands kicking back to normal then wales will have a very strong side.
Maybe he is back too soon after his injuries, and we should make the most of having halfpenny and hook.

Yes tremendous game with young Mr.North in awesome form. France looked dangerous and England looked as of the pace as you would expect given the disppointing Heineken cup.
I don`t fancy Farrell at centre at all , dull dull dull. I would stick Hopper in from the Saxons we need Tuigamala back and I would aso get that Wasps wing in on the right, injured now but we have to have line breakers. The pack were ok , the discipline tackling and attitude were good though
, don`t write England off yet.
Also the conditions were bitter up in Jocko land

Great to see Wales play like that though, I started watching rugby with my dad in the 70s and I `ve always love the Welsh approach.
If the greatest writer of the written word had written that they would think he made it up. That was really something ( Cliff Morgan).. remember that ?

Being an ex rugby player in, and from, Wales, I was a bag of nerves when Ireland scored that second try, so much so that I couldn't watch after that, and subsequently missed the last 10 minutes. Needless to say I beat myself up afterwards, but I did get around to watch the last 10 minutes from a recording. I agree with Clifford, Wales needs to iron out a few areas, not least covering short in the back line, and to concentrate on getting the ball and not tipping the opponents up. But, that man North, what a player...even if he did fail to cover Tommy Bowe's try. Long way to go for all teams yet, but, ONWARDS.

Tuilagi not Tuigamala, although I would of liked to have seen the latter in an England shirt in his prime.
England are a work in progress, lot's of new players some will work, some won't - hopefully as fans we can show some patience.

Why is public money being spent on it? Maybe because there are people prepared to campaign for a safe cycling route from Lewes... more
