Think I hit a nerve....:whistle: I am not 'blaming' anyone but as someone who has to bear the brunt of endless sheep jokes I learn to take it with a pinch of salt and not become paranoid about it...that reaction only fans the flames.
Haha, no mate. Just playing.

Italy really should be winning this by at least 10. Have they blown their chance?

Good match, but Italy will have a lot of injuries by the time they've stopped kicking themselves.

Anyway, looking forward to Wales / Ireland.

And then the big one. ;)

I don't mind, cos I'm winning money on this, but I'm wondering if any decision is going to go Ireland's way.

It's a big shame for us English, but this is actually getting quite funny tbh watching the complete meltdown.

Edit: Sexton, again :ROFLMAO:

I think England and Ireland will be pleased that the World Cup isn't in Wales. Both of them seem to have been affected by the venue pressure; Ireland are playing in a very un-Irish way here!

On this form ireland are not favourites for the WC. They've had a poor 6 nations. Wales have been excellent.

Fantastic job by Wales, credit to em'. Been totally surprised with Ireland this six nations, big drop in performance.
Bit of a shame for the England game though.

So many unforced Irish errors....not like them at all. Didn't expect such a comfortable win.

Great performance by Wales.

Pathetic from Ireland.

Does this mean we have to pin our hopes on Wales to win the World Cup for the Northern Hemisphere?

Well done Wales. Deserved Grand Slam, especially after the first half against France!

I don't think there is all that much between the top 3 to be honest, though I worry about Ireland's performance in the two big games, but Wales's confidence must be sky high and that will give them a boost for the WC.

There isn't much in it but the smartest and most precise team (along with the best defence) always comes out on top, which Wales have been this year.
