I have to that, that was a pretty convincing win from England, surprisingly so. Scotland can take some positives from the game though. When they got some decent possession put together some great play and some of the ball handling was top drawer. The way Farrell is kicking at the moment you just can't afford to give England too many penalties within kicking distance.

Wasn't a great start from us either (Welshie!) but we can take positives from the second half - it was a great fight back. Ireland will need to watch their discipline - you don't win the six nations with two people in the bin per game!

Anyone looking forward to England vs France tomorrow?

Its always my favourite match up of the six nations. I don't why they seem to play with an added spark. Plus i love screaming at the TV. Its those times my Dads grateful he cant take his hearing aid out.

A great win - and good to see Warren Gatland's team selection totally vindicated. Apart from the anxious spell for a few minutes either side of half time, they were utterly dominant - incredible stuff! :D

In football, when a shot goes way above goal, locals usually say "three points to Wales". Only now it occurred to me it might be a reference to rugby. It's kind of weird, because in the list of known and practiced sports, I have the idea rugby sits near the bottom. Does any of you know this expression?

 

Also, congratulations to Ireland, Australia and Toulon.

I'm watching my first match this world cup, England versus Wales, currently 22-18 with seventeen minutes to go. Scott Williams injured, the commentators said the welsh team is plagued by injuries.

That was a magnificent kick!   Dan Bigger, that was amazing!  

 

Woolf, you picked a great game as your first one! 

 

I was expecting it to be rubbish cos of all the hype but it's been really good.  Best game of the Cup so far.  And that's saying something considering what Japan did to South Africa.

It was a fun game to watch. Both teams showed a lot of heart, those final minutes were breathtaking. The assist in Wales' try was great.
