Aye, probably not far off, but I don't see any tries coming Scotland's way. If the froggies are up for it then England may struggle to get to 20, unless they go for constant penalties and rely on Lord Johnnie again.
I think that score flatters England, if they carry on playing as badly in the second half as they have done in the previous two it's going to be a bad night.
The French may not have been on top of their game but due to it being England and the world cup in their mind still they will raise their game.
C'mon its the French, that alone will be worth more effort than other games - its in the Anglo-Saxon blood! Realistically both teams have got a new look that is not yet firing as it should however if things come off for both we may see the emergence of a new dominance in future rugby (at least Northern Hemisphere anyway)
In centre of London on Saturday, can anyone suggest a good 'rugby pub' to watch the Ireland v Scotland match ...... although Scottish I'm guessing to get a good atmosphere this might require an Irish bar! Meeting Junior oldmuso so it can't be an over 21's.
Scotland team has just been announced. Paterson at 10, Webster at 13 and Lamont at 11. Strockosh at 6 with the other two back row tbc (Hogg and Barclay?). We wait and see, but I still don't rate our chances in Dublin.
Royalmile, i feel negative vibes comming from you lol, be possitive, Jason Wjite wasn't producing, so Stroks will do a good job in his place, i worry about the centres.
So my predictions:
Wales v Italy - Wales win by 10 points
France v England - France by 5-10 points
Ireland v Scotland - Ireland by 10 points
Yes we scored a try, but in truth we still don't look like setting the heather abalze. McLeod, Strokes and Blair had great games. Paterson better than Parks at stand-off. Henderson is just a one dimensional lump. The A team destroyed Ireland by 10 trys last night. Writing on the wall for Mr Hadden perhaps?
