I don't find any sort of televised sport of much interest these days, but my mother-in-law who's 85 will be glued to her TV throughout the rugby. She gets quite frisky and reckons that "rugby is played by real men, not like the other lot with their round balls."laugh

Don't write Scotland off. Their commitment to their team is top notch. They are organised, and brave in executing their vision. Give them a sniff of victory, gift them a try, and they will gut you.

Tears in the Brains Saturday night I reckon. Wales are not what they were, and I don't see a turnaround coming.

Always a great tournament and a nice transition from Winter to Spring by the time it concludes.

Scotland may be the dark horse this year - but it will still be an England victory.

Let's hope this thread does not attract the "I hate all sport" type comments!frown

An uphill struggle for us welsh this year perhaps with so many first level players out due to injury.

Still the under 21's did well last year so there may be a chance for new blood to shine.

I do think that things have got tough on all players these days with more body check type tackles rather than the traditional around the leggs tackle that was taught when I was a lot younger.

It's the Rugby League influence, I think. It's no longer a contact sport - but a collision sport!

And the poorer for it. It's a magnificent sight to see a man mountain crush some poor thing, as long as it's your man doing it. Barry John was magic, but was allowed to play. The side step nowadays has to be assessed in case you get a crippling tackle. I cite Jonnie Wilkinson as too brave for his own good.

Yep, even wings and centres are enormous these days. Watching some highlights of Jeremy Guscott twenty years ago shows the difference in styles and game play. He was silky, gliding through the opposition.

Now they prefer to batter into the opposition to gain turnover ball.

Still a great spectacle as that first hit goes in - whether League or Union.

David Duckham affectionately known as Dai Duckham such was the respect he got here in Wales.

Anyway, I have fed SWMBO, salmon and scallops, pasta. She likes such things. And on Sunday we eat with neibours, who , being knowledgeable, solicited when the match finished. And from now till then, I touch no pans. SWMBO will provide.

It’s not real rugby

Got your facts wrong Glyn, it's the away team that decides if roof is closed. So it's the porridge guys you should be calling softies. The Welsh prefer to have it closed in bad weather as it is better to have games in dry conditions. Cheers

What do I know about rugby. Scotland have not turned up. Dire. Rule one, hang onto the ball.

You seem to be half right fly boy!

Quote from Wales online:

The Principality Stadium roof will be open on Saturday despite Wales' wishes to close it and the forecast rain.The idea that Wales have the final say on what happens with the roof is a misconception and for it to be closed, both sides must agree to it. “

So according that it’s open, it’s not on my tv, well I don’t think it is!

anyway just having a dig at the old enemy. I’ll be at the England Wales game. Fingers crossed.

Gotta feel for Scotland, they only seem to win at curling.
