    Its refreshing to have such a baldly direct and honest former player in the rte studio. There is no screen or cheap talk with him, he's like a conduit into the camp and the mindset of a current irish player.

        Great game....very entertaining. England a bit unlucky. France will improve for that but still appear flakey at times.

          That Fickou guy did a bit of a JJ there at the end.

            I enjoyed that match - there haven't been many good England-France games in recent years. I thought the handling and willingness to run today was a credit to both teams in the conditions. You have to hand it to France for pulling something out of the bag from nothing in the last couple of minutes. Lancaster is building a nice team - I was impressed with Farrell today and the young guys were great. Vunipola is something when he gets rolling.

            Interesting 6N shaping up. Lets hope Ireland does the business tomorrow to keep it so.

              Worse was Barritt for Nowell. That cost them the last try.

                Weird to see the england front row being an area of weakness. Cole and Vuinipola aren't worth a ****. Domingo against healy is gonna be some battle though. Billy vuinipola and then ben morgan to bring on though? Jaysus...

                  Fickou and Fofana will be nightmarish to face when they start playing together regularly. Bastareaud is a no-trick pony.

                    Thought Fofana was a bit quiet actually. There was one point in the second half where he exchanged a couple of passes with the winger on a break and I was waiting for the jets to come on. He was caught from behind, which I wasn't sure was possible.

                        If you want to beat England it's Zebo and gilroy you want out wide, fight them up front, try and get parity at b/d & scrum, attack Farrell and have speed and skill out wide

                          And not a mention of Rommell, Patten or Montgomery. Must be a first. Seems a bit in awe of ROG.

                            Anyone who isn't in awe of ROG is a fool

                              5 scrum penalties to France?

                                When Cole wasnt falling over he was popping up, Domingo is a superb scrummager. Mako struggled badly too
