Always nice to hear England and especially as I wasn’t confident going into it. We gave up a couple of soft tries at the end and another piece of indiscipline cost us. We could have scored more but England looked v disjointed and gave away a load of pens

Nice to see a few potential Lions squad players step up - Henshaw, Beirne, Furlong, Murray and Henderson

I’m glad they lost - this isn’t a great Welsh side and would be undeserving of a grand slam. I think they’ll win the championship as Scotland won’t get thumped by France

21 point win required or 20 points but scoring 6 tries. Seems unlikely but they will be highly motivated

Great days Rugby we absolutely mullered Italy. Left a few try’s out there even with an 8 try win.

And then a dominant win for Ireland. Didn’t see that coming. What happened to England? They were poor all match.’looked devoid of any ideas at all. Eddie Jones under pressure? He has to be. Some shite selection decisions all tournament.

And then an absolute cracker France v Wales. I’m so glad France won. Wales have had literally every decision go their way. Their try could have been held up given. France multiple held up not. When a France went for that second scrum 10 points down with 3 and half minutes to play I thought they’d fucked it. But. Somehow they came back. Welsh discipline went completely (should have been down to 12) and somehow saw it out.

I agree with Nev this Welsh team, though good, are not deserving of the Slam. It was a great game though. And, where other sports have been a bit underwhelming a great tournament. England with technical wooden spoon

What do people think of Ellis Genge? When I saw him first I thought what a wanker. Then I saw that he's a guy from a council estate so I thought kinda good for him. Then I still see him doing his cocky rugby wanker thing and thought why should I drop my wanker assessment standards just cos the guy isn't privately educated so I hated him again. And then I see the fuss about him using the elbow on Sexton and I wonder why he's getting so much shit for it and whether it's because he's not a standard rugby guy. I like mysteries like this.

The Sexton thing was a bit of needle that was common years ago but in the modern game is a red card - very surprised he wasn’t cited. He plays the game on the edge and it makes him the player he is - that doesn’t matter if he is from a council estate or not although it’s less likely an English player comes from that background.

Again in the past most rugby players came from a privileged background - in Ireland the exception to that was Limerick with clubs like Young Munster being very much ‘council estate’ background. Peter Clohessy, Paul O’Connell and Keith Earls being two very notable players to come through from YM.

If you look at Leinster there is usually a very defined path for the Dublin based guys - go to one of the fancy rugby schools and then into the Leinster academy. Outside of Dublin in recent years we’ve seen rural farmer types such as Furlong, Sean O’Brien etc make the jump without going through the school path.

Munster have always had that rural player + Mick Galway, John Hayes, Denis Leamy, Alan Quinlan and more. There are also plenty of players who came the elite rugby school way (Munchins in Limerick - CBC & PBC in Cork) such as O’Gara and Stringer.

What I am saying is it’s more common in Ireland than in England but I don’t think he gets more shit because of his background. He gets shit because he plays on the edge and steps over it sometimes

There were a few decisions not to give reds at the weekend which flew in the face of everything that happened in the weeks leading up. Hogg was spear tackled FFS.

I agree with Genge, ultimately a fascinating character because he doesn't fit the mould, but the mould he does fit is the one where he plays on the edge and gets away with it as many England players have *cough*Farrell*cough* over the years.

His hair is diabolical though.

Picking on reputation rather than form there mate Farrell, Vunipola and May...!!! Faletau at 8 for me. Watson just shading 7 stats wise for me. Agree with most of the rest. It would be 12 and one of the wings.

Edit: And North has been playing centre for Wales as he was way out of form on the wing.

I don’t get the Faletau fuss tbh - I think Billy will be stronger vs SA. I think Garland won’t risk Russell as it’s not his way - it may be Sexton or Farrell at 10 with Finn on the bench. I think Henshaw had a superb 6 Nations and deserves a start so could only squeeze North on the wing. Toss up between May and Watson but May a better finisher.

Killed me to leave out Ryan

I’ve gone on form, and I’m putting Finn in because it’s my Lions team as with Racing with a strong pack and Murray giving him ball I think he will do some damage. Mako was awful in the 6Ns. The guys on the Rugby Pod reckon he is done.

Sam Simmonds should be England’s 8. The only reason he isn’t is because Eddie is a dick. Also, look at the blend in my team all 4 nations represented.

Itoje gets in on rep, he gets hooked if he gives away as many fouls as he did in the 6Ns.

That back 3 is the one that should be picked but I don’t see it from Gatland - Beirne over CJ (on form) and Murray been way below normal. The front row is probably the right one also.

The great thing is they have so many options - they should really win this but ZA don’t tend to lose a series at home.......will be fascinating

Russell is the one that has everything but still unproven consistently at the highest level - I think he’ll go Sexton or Farrell

I agree, my team will be nowhere near the team that is chosen. But. He has to mix it up. The Saracens guys are playing only Championship Rugby between now and the tour. I’d look at Henderson instead of Itoje or even Beirne because Mark had a poor 6Ns by his standards. Of Garland picks and sticks with Farrell and Ford etc then it totally devalues the Lions which should be picked on form. Farrell had a really poor 6Ns.

I think Sexton will be the starting 10 and Finn will get his chance from the bench. But. Gatland is very likely to even choose Biggar ahead of Finn.

Ultimately I hope it is the last we see of Gatland as a Lioms coach.

Given the cancellation isn’t our fault this is pretty shit. Sean Maitland would be playing for sure tonight. I think Jonny Gray is injured so he’s miss out anyway but we are undoubtedly weaker because of this.

I enjoyed that more than the (relatively straight forward ) England win.

Huge discipline at the end

Also. How good are Friday night tests?

I’ve had a load of beers. Got to watch on my own. Doesn’t get much better than that in lockdown.

The 6Ns has been brilliant. I think it’s the one tournament where there has been no drop off on quality despite their being no crowds. Great Rugby throughout

Sigh - Munster’s strongest side still well beaten by half of Leinster’s strongest side in the Pro 14 final. Another year without a trophy awaits

Edinburgh getting pulverised by Racing. Edinburgh haven’t played badly, they just can’t live with the power.
