Laidlaw has retired from Scotlands rugby team. He will be missed, amazing kicker and leader.

Sarries to be relegated from the Prem, regardless of whether or not they climb up the table. Means if they retain the HK this year, they can't defend it next year. 

 

:bye:

The idea that they were given the choice of having their accounts audited or accepting automatic relegation, and then chose relegation suggests that there's a lot of iffy behaviour that has yet to be exposed. 

 

Surely the taxman is going to start asking questions now?

If you asked me 4 months ago I would have said England with a grandslam this coming 6 nations but with all that's happened with the Saracens and Billy V now out it's looking a lot more open. 

 

There are big reshuffles with Scotland, Ireland, Wales and France going in so England easily being the most settled team going in looked an easy choice but all this has really thrown a spanner in the works. 

 

Really looking forward to it now.

Don't know what to make of that really


Some great individual performances I thought but North was exposed in centre a fair bit and we gave up serious yards. But we made some great chances by being bold and creative. And glad to see us not give a single point away

Wasted so many chances and the Hogg thing speaks for itself some def at the try line by Ireland also. At least Scotland looked pretty solid overall.

no I'm good thanks.   Excited about the game but concerned that Scotland might get destroyed.

Concerned this may get worse for England, difficult first game away to a new France, and a dreadful first half. Could easily be campaign over by the second match.

It will be a tough game for England away, but with the way that Scotland played v Ireland it will play into Englands "bosh" type of game.

I cant see Ireland overturning England in Twick either and this as an Irish supporter.

No grand slam for anyone and Wales to win the tournament

It feels early to be picking Wales as winners, but I agree nobody's likely to make a Slam this year. They couldn't have wished for nicer opponents than Italy at home to start with but there's a lot of tricky away games to negotiate and I feel like better teams will expose the difficulty of new coaching team tactics and familiarity. Maybe I'm just being a typical Welsh pessimist.

What we need post-Brexit is a ban on the free trade of Shaun Edwards...

 

French defence looked strong.

Congrats Ireland, totally outclassed us, Wales look really tired and Tompkins had an absolute stinker with his missed tackles.

Aye, I thought Stander was particularly clever with his infractions, but ultimately we didn't deserve shit anyway, really scrappy and uncoordinated.

An awful game with so many mistakes. Some of  which were forgivable due to the weather. Except England booting the ball out on the 4 times iirc and Scotlands dire lineout and Hogg pissing about again.

 

Such a blunt performance from England and we still couldnt win :(

Awful conditions to play in. How many penalties did Farrell miss in the end ?

3 i think, must be the first time for years since that happened to him.

 

Englands new scrum-half didnt look very good to me and barely seemes involved.

 

Best game of the year and its been pish.

Was never going to be a classic in that weather unfortunately. Both teams had the same problem England had last week - stupid errors at vital moments. But they had a better excuse for it this week. Agreed, Willi Heinz didn’t look very inspired; Youngs played much better when he came on.
