    Woohoo! First blood from Sandra…… easy they not kicked off yet!! Lol

    You’d think France will beat Italy but they getting better every year.
    Id love to see Scotland beat England, if only to see Sandra’s post after lol
    Wales V Ireland..well I hope the winner from this game goes on to win this year. [​IMG]

    Any thoughts?

    The chances of wales winning are so small. I think Scotland may just win this year. Time will tell. :) x

    I am with Sandra on that one it would be good for Scotland to prove themselves.
    On another note these T shirts were banned in Aberdeen some years back when it had these letters on them ABE

    Will be watching tomorrow once im finished playing myself.
    Few beers in the Clubhouse recovering while getting to preach to a TV on how you could do a btter job then the 18st 6ft4 monster that just dropped the ball.

    Must admit i think Scotlands chances are slim but it will depend what side turns up. we scared South Africa in the Summer before becoming brain dead in the Tonga game. Scotland the smallest nation on Earth who think we should be near the top at every sport.

    Yup, I'll be watching, but will have to miss the first game unfortunately.

    My Dad's very excited about the rugby - but mostly because he gets to use his new pint glass tomorrow for the first time. Little things, eh? :happy:

    Wales was so flat the first half, i didn't even shout at the TV!!
    Was good to see Wales did turn up for the second half, but to late with Ireland killing the ball.

    The Grand Slam has gone, but we can still win on points!! ;)

    Some interesting games next week that will probably decide the outcome of the tournament...

    Scotland v Italy - Both teams are playing really well, hope the Scots come through. If this had been the first weekend of the competition, I would've said it would be the decider for the wooden spoon, but after last weeks performances, who knows what will happen!?

    Ireland v England - The winner of this will be the winner of the 6 nations this year in my opinion

    France v Wales - Both really need the win, so likely to be a really hard fought battle. Should make for good viewing!

    Scotland have to win for a change, yes they are a good team, but its like they get to a certain point in the game and just give up. I sure hope we dont get the wooden spoon this year. :) x

    Yay, Scotland! An emphatic win! Next up, Wales v France. The Welsh need a good win too, I'd say.

    The Ireland v England match should be a cracker. On Monday, I'll be meeting a colleague from Dublin for dinner and we both know only one of us will be celebrating :) Lucky bugger has tickets, so he'll be watching from the stands too.

    Well Scotland are sure on form, i think we could just take the title this year. I will watch the England v Ireland game this afternoon, think it will be a close match. Im not predicting the scores this week as i failed last week, lol. Hope everyone watching enjoys the game. :) x

    Gutted for Ireland today (obviously!) but the better team won.
    England look good - defence is superb!
    Looking forward to the next round!

    Ok folks, Wales v Italy today kicks off at 2.30. My prediction is that Wales are going to slaughter the Italians. Watch out Jeff, i may get this right for a change, lol. Enjoy.

    Looking forward to this weekends games after the break last week. Agree with Sandra, think Wales will take this!
    Italians on home ground though so you never know. Spotted this pic and thought it was funny!

    Bit of a scrappy first half, hopefully we will see more rugby in the second half instead of kicking the ball from one end of the field to the other. :) x
