heypaul...probably the most entertaining weekend of 6 nations that I can remember for a long time.

For those that have Universal Sports, you can catch all the games.

and my flight leaves this Wednesday for Dublin...have my tickets for hopefully the Grand Slam decider.

C'mon Ireland!!!

Big win for Italy! It makes for a better tournament that they can be competitive. Set up for some more great matches next weekend highlighted by the epic showdown between England vs Ireland in Dublin. France should be able to rebound against Wales in the losers match up but I'm really curious to see now if Italy can keep the momentum up against Scotland. I think they can and should be able to beat Wales this year too.


I love this time of year. Six Nations in gear then back to Heineken Cup plus Super Rugby is getting ready to start!

A few years ago I don't know anything about it, after watching it often you'll begin to learn.

There's two different kinds. League & Union, but just YouTube full games and watch.

Huge win for Italy, even if it turns out that France are a bit down this year.

Looking forward to this weekend.

I watched almost all of the Ireland v Wales game and that Defense Ireland had out there was stout...at least at the try line. Sure, they had their backs to the wall more than they would have liked, but they really stepped up when it was needed, imo. Really fun game to watch.

I guess we shouldn't be too surprised Italy won what with how they playe the All Blacks in the Autumn Internationals. But France had also crushed Australia and with the high dollar level of play in the Top 14 I thought France would win fairly easy.

They really have fallen off since the Grand Slam huh? I'm sure they won't want to lose 8 in a row but France won't want to lose at home either after losing to Italy.

I have to think France will win Welsh Rugby is just a complete mess right now.

I missed the Ireland game but they showed that highlight during the England/Scotland match and that was just incredible! Hoping Scotland can bounce back this weekend.

Oh yeah! Went last year against Italy but got too drunk beforehand to enjoy the game. Lesson learned.
