Scotland – decent pack with a surprisingly good back row that has been dug up. Backs – hardly a first choice player bar Russell.
Had to see beyond a comprehensive defeat and could be slaughter. Maybe our special tactic of playing midgets will succeed in winning us a bunch of penaltiesPosted 3 months ago
Agreed. Going to be stressful/anxious viewing.
For Irish Welsh and English supporters…
I’d love Wales to win the Grand Slam, but whatever the results on Saturday there’s little between Wales, England and Ireland, and all are looking at least reasonable contenders for the World Cup.
Scotland need to do better than Italy did against England on Saturday – this may not be easy. England it would appear are still hurting from there loss last year and the subsequent ribbing.Posted 3 months agoScamperMember
If Wales loose I couldn’t give a stuff if they finish first, second or third in the championship – grand slams is what it’s about, not who puts the most points past Italy. I think it was 1994 when Wales lost to England in the last match but still won the championship and Ieuan Evans sheepishly lifted the trophy.Posted 3 months ago
I would dearly love for Wales to win tomorrow but they aren’t robots and have been on the end of some immensely physical matches. Ireland look like a team in the middle of a tournament still building whereas Wales must be battered and tired and I’m not sure they can afford to keep defending in the same way against a powerful Irish side. Going to be a tight one!Posted 3 months agoloumMember
Whilst I’ll congratulate any winners on saturday, its Grand Slam or nothing for me, bonus points are bollocks in the six nations.
This sums it up.
Ireland’s competition was over in the first week when England battered then at home. Since then it’s been about building for something else.
Wales still have the biggest prize to play for.
When that happens, it’s usually the team with something to play for.
But its a bit ironic that it’s the size of that England victory , getting the try bonus point away and leaving Ireland with nothing, that’s left Ireland with nothing to play for handing Wales the easiest of slam chances.Posted 3 months ago

I’m not sure I understand this, but if Ireland could just go easy on Wales tomorrow that would be appreciated ; )Posted 3 months ago
Two shitty teams. France are causing Italy all sorts of problems at the breakdown though. Italy have zero composure when in a try scoring position. T seems odd that the national team is utter bobbins when the domestic teams are actually playing pretty well at the mo.Posted 3 months ago
