What happened here then, I nearly missed the start of this competition.  Shocked Not to worry, it's here now.

It should be interesting to see where England will go this time. No Martin Johnson, a team Captain that has only one Cap and a stand-in Head Coach. Not looking to bright that. Cry Time will tell.

To be honest, I think the SN 2012 is open to all this time given the fantastic showing in the last RWC.

Your thoughts ?.

I'll be rooting for England on Sat.

I think now is a good time for change. Gives them 4 years (maybe 3) to get players used to internationals for the next RWC.

May not bode well for this 6 nations. Time will tell.

Actually I'm feeling quitre good about the selection, pressure is mostly on Scotland as they have a massively more experienced line up so nobody is really expecting and English win.

For us performance is key, a win would be a bonus (although beating scotland is always fun  Grin)

Well now, there's a surprise post coming from the ROI, I thought that, other than the Ities, every other team wants England to crash and burn in the team coach.  lol

Yey! We beat the Scots, as an English man I’m happy about that Smiley.

Probably won’t stop the Scottish breaking up the UK though  Cry, oops sorry off topic.

Good result with an inexperienced team second half was an improved performance and at last an England team not giving away silly penalties every 5 mins!!!!

I'm a happy camper  Cool

Game of the weekend tomorrow though, Ireland v Wales should be a cracker for us neutrals

Well, I'm very nearly Gob Smacked.  Shocked

I didn't expect that result given the radical changes that have been made to the line-up, out with the old, in with the new. What a refreshing change it made to see, once again, what has been missing from the England game for so many years, DISCIPLINE. Our defence was strong and true, our kicking was good and we were treated to a belt of Hand Bags to boot. Well done Boys. thumbsup

In balance, I feel that the Sweaties didn't press home their advantage as and when they could and, just for the record, in my humble opinion, that was a Try.

If today's showing forms the foundation for England Rugby, beware the rest of the World in 2015.  sign-great-job

The other match played today showed little promise from the Tournament favourites. (Bookies, not me) Italy played rather well I thought and the final result did little justice to Italy. Well played Italy.

My opinion of whom I think will win has now changed, however, there is one more match to be played this week end and one thing is for sure, the losing team will be going home licking it's wounds. Wales v Ireland, it's going to be a cracker enjoy. cheers
