Not a big rugby fan myself but I do like this time of year, the atmosphere is something else.

Welsh people go mad for it, my FB page is flooded with people going nuts for the Six Nations, especially women they're mad for it.

Wish I was in to Rugby as much as I am football. Football could do with taking a look at Rugby and learning a thing or two about discipline and respect for one another whether you're a player, a fan or a manager.

Proper hard bastards playing a game in the proper manner. Think football needs to start incorporating captains being the only ones who can speak to a ref when something kicks off, think it would transform the game instead of everyone showing vitriol towards each other.

Not sure how much you respect an opponent you punch in the face when they ain't looking, or gouging. Respecting the ref maybe but they rugby refs are competent.

Football refs are largely jumped up buffoons with a Napoleon complex and putting them on a pedestal will only inflate their undeserved ego further.

More than the players attitudes need to change to fix football. Top to bottom reform needed but nobody is going to jump off the gravy train so it won't happen.

Looking forward to England v Wales in Chester. Normally rammed, hope the Chester Wrexham football crowd keep away though.

England will probably win it this year.

I'd love if we won it in what might be O'Driscoll's last Six Nations, but I can't see it happening.

But then again , you never know.........

That said I'm amazed that Ireland are destroying the Welsh at half time in Cardiff.

These sorts of incidents are rare hence the hoo ha when they take place and the sanctions are extremely severe.

This is a great game. Ireland were cruising, 30-3 up at one stage but Wales are only 15 points behind now.

My nerves are shot. 20 minutes to go.

8 points now with 4 minutes left. Surely it's too late for Wales?

O'Driscoll awarded man of the match. Rightly so, he was magnificent again today.

I thought we played ok, without ever looking like winning it. We will beat at least one of Wales, Ireland or Italy at home.

Solid in every position other than midfield where Lamont and Scott lack guile. Number 10 a worry as ever.....

I think our back 3 can do some damage though. Hogg was electric, Visser is class and Maitland looks a player.
