    England for the grand slam @Kryton57 ?

    2nd or 3rd, no way they’ll beat Ireland, tomorrow will be a close call as will France. Could almost be a 3 week losing streak from here but the team does look as strong as it could be.

    Behind TJ’s Sofa time for us Englanders…

    Ok Scotland forget about the two previous games games, forget about the forthcoming games, play to your full potential today and win

    Bit of reverse psychology.

    Here we go. This could be very painful. Ireland by 35+ points. Less than 15 and I’ll be pretty happy.

    Is it just me, or is this ref pretty harsh at the breakdown?! Very little flow to the game

    Interesting attack v defence training here. Maybe they will let Wales attack in the second half

    I’m biased, but Ireland seem to get away with so much!
    It’s hard to believe Ireland aren’t 30+ ahead already ☹️

    Wales just look outmatched, some silly mistakes around the tackle area that look like they’re nervous about Ireland getting quick ball. They need to stop running at Aki too, he’s on a good one today.

    Ireland are going to pick England apart when we play them, they look like they’re in a different competition to the other five teams.

    Ireland should be made to play with 14 players from the start – give everyone else a chance. Much more entertaining too. 😃

    Are we sure this is the same Wales team?
    These half-time bollockings seem to be having an effect this 6N

    Nice to secure the bonus point at the end.

    Wales really should try playing both halves.

    That’s doubled Ireland’s yellow card count for the last few seasons I think. 😂

    I thought the ref did well in the ire Vs Wales game. Excellent communication, really clear on his decisions and what he was seeing

    All week my prediction for this game has been England score in first 5 mins (4:58) then Scotland come back to take the lead. Soybut we’re going to throw it away in the last 20.

    England need to learn how to pass & catch the ball

    Much more entertaining game this but it’s all a bit keystone cops!

    I think Scotland took the wrong message when folk were saying they only get properly fired up for England games.

    Can you all check under your sofas, England’s defence might be there as they don’t appear to be at Murrayfield today.

    VdM, he’s got incredible pace, great player.

    As an England fan this is making awkward watching.

    Great kick by Russell, but a bit of a jammy bounce

    Scoreline right. England are terrible, Scotland playing not as well as they could. Great tries by VDM but they shouldn’t have been allowed to happen, Englands Defense has been narrow all tournament.

    The Borthwick Era seems to be coming to pass as the coaching ability to make a team less talented than the sum of its parts.

    A lot of this game could have been played with the benny hill theme tune
    So many handling errors

    I have to say, Scotland were absolutely clinical in punishing England’s mistakes.

    Entertaining game, Scotland took their chances. Some positives for England but too many silly errors.

    England are all muscle and no flair as is traditional.

    World Beaters found out I think. They’re like melting butter in the face of a bit of decent passing sometimes. Earl and Itoje awful. Thoroughly deserved win.

    Good warm up for the triple crown decider, stronger test next week to continue the fine tuning.

    Who claimed England were world beaters? Put the snide comments away and talk on the rugby. Scotland were class today – I love watching VdM in full flow. I’m glad that England are trying new players and different systems. Too many handling errors and the blitz is definitely a work in progress. As was said in commentary, SA took 16 games to learn it properly according to FJ.

    Oh, I thought that was an accepted nickname for England on STW rugby threads. Sorry if it’s upset you. I promise I won’t use it again.*

    It was in jest Dan, but in all fairness; every year we get the usual crap here about how we aren’t good, England just didn’t play well. Papers tomorrow will be full of it as well. Look on the bright side, you definitely won the celebrating-winning-a-line-out contest. PS; crusader costumes; what the actual?

    Also won celebrating an opposition knock on contest.

    Andy Brace is an Itoje fanboi. Should have been penalized a lot more. Told him three times in one “ruck” to get out, he didn’t and England turned the ball over.

    this england team is by far the worst i have ever seen. just poor in all aspects of the game.
    scotland played well after the first 10 minutes. but englands gash performance made them look very very good.

    Blimey, you must be younger than you look. Dusty Hare, Marcus Rose?
