Starts tomorrow, hope you all enjoy it.

Hopefully Eddie will have had time to sort English lads out and we get a bit of pride back, c'mon the lads rose

Such a lack of ambition Phil. I for one hope we are on the long road back to some expectation that I can honestly see victory over the big three in the south. The six nations is a sort of playoff for the losers at the moment. But if you are happy with that, may your propellor remain unbroken.

I am very nervous about the encounter with Scotland. Scotland get little for their efforts, often deserve better, and will come at England with no fear in ther hearts. Have England the nouse the put them down, and then put the boot in in true sporting fashion. A skill not learnt on training grounds in 5 minutes.

As an Englishman, I find it galling to hear English pundits praising and supporting any one other than England. Where as neither the Welsh, or Scots or Ireland have any problems in being biassed. Listening to the match at present, I decided to go and do some modelling, before I get to upset by the pundit supporting the commentator.

I am as biased as they come myself and proud of it, pundits and commentators should say it as it is, even when it hurts.

Scruffy game so far but don't lack in passion nor effort, slow to the break downs again and making very few yards going forward, not a clue who'll win crook

If that is so, perhaps the BBC should inform some of their pundits.

Not the game I expected, but job done. But England will have to cut down on the soft penalties.

Well we won but I've no idea if either of the teams are much good or if the passion made it scruffy, what I did see was two teams who gave it their all, and you can't ask for much more.

Should be a great game tomorrow smiley

I felt that the referee has a good game,

Although they all missed a blatant obstruction and one tackling of the ball. Yet given that fact that an awful lot is going on, without the advantage of a higher position, from multiple cameras they did very well.

Unlike many, I saw a workman like performance by both England and the refereeing staff in a hostile environment. It is a well done from me.smiley

It's supposed to be hostile away from home, if you looked around the clips of the crowd they where sat mingled together and not an hint of trouble, saw one or two looked like man and wife, all good stuff.

John, you are correct in that you know that the home team is supported by the local fans in a partisan way.

In some places in the UK it can be a little more than being partisan, when England are involved. Not all, by any means.

Enjoyed the Italy game, hard luck not to win.

England / Scotland was a a bit frenetic with Scotland missing their chances. Good defence by England to close out a tight game. I think they will improve and be he team to beat this year. Not sure about having a captain who can't see what's going on at scrum time.

Today's game.... who knows. I'm always pessimistic when Wales play, much rather be the underdog.

Come on lovely boys wink

Well I have to say that I am more fortunate than most when it comes to supporting teams in the Six Nations.

My father was Welsh, my mother English, I live in France and I play the Highland Bagpipes (and have a kilt hanging in my wardrobe!), I like the way the Irish play and I eat pasta and often buy Italian wine (yes you can buy wines in France other than french but you have to carry it home in a plain brown paper bag! LOL!)

But my heart is with England (Home of Rugby- and I have seen the original rule book fo Rugby School) but I get pleasure out of evry match!

It's a great contest and shouting at the telly is good exercise - so bring it on!wink!

And that is why the world is in two parts, those without souls, and rugby persons. And so says one who hasn't got to wake up tomorrow, and think, dare I move, cos ot hurts just to lay here.
