    England were unlucky. Hard to see anybody winning a slam this year

      Domingo will be up against the penguin or Moore surely. The English scrum without Corbesiero is ****e. Cole offers plenty around the field but no matter what the press say, he can't scrummage.

        Left 10 points behind them with very get able kicks. Cracking game I thought.

          French started with the wrong scrum half. Very poor, slow to rucks etc.

            France are slowly rehabilitating themselves. That's two good performances in a row and it looks a team playing in spite of the clown managing them.

            Fickou and fofana is potentially the best centre partnership in the world.

            Was very impressed with England we are going to be steeped to beat them.
            I always knew Madigan was a closet Scrum Half. Ignore All things that suggest Continuity.

              Earls looking like a bigger loss than ever, looking at that England defense.

                If only we had another winger with game breaking ability available to us. Oh.

                    Every English rugby supporter I have spoken to thinks the omission of Zebo is madness. He would walk into any other team in the tournament bar Wales and Joe has him behind Trimble and Dave Kearney.

                      Individual brilliance versus fitting into the team mentality? You never know what's going on in the camp.

                        He has played about 80 mins in the last 3.5 months so isn't at full fitness and with Jackson on the bench he can't sub so he's better off playing for Munster

                          It certainly makes you wonder.

                            Are you talking about McFadden?

                                Doussain made a poor match, probably his worst of the year, but he plays for a while like fly-half with Toulouse (because of McAlister's injury) it's not easy to change of post. He is intrinsically our best scrum-half.
