This is a bit of a late kickoff, eh? Two rounds in already and we haven't slagged anyone off yet.

Ireland seem to be doing OK after a frankly disappointing RWC. Two wins out of two so far, and they should get their 3rd win against the Italians. That's a fairly good start to a rebuilding year under a new manager.

France looked awesome in their first match (and not only because we were shite).

I'm not sure we were much better in the 2nd game or it was just that Scotland managed to be worse

France are capable of looking good for 50-60 minutes but seem to either run out of steam or switch off for 20 minutes every game. Typically French but their defence has definitely improved.

Ireland were rusty against Scotland but much more clinical against Wales

Scotland are shit and can even win in Scottish weather conditions.

Italy have been Italy.

Wales looked good against Italy (not difficult) but lacked defensive bite against Ireland

England were as bad as I’ve seen for most of the game against France. Against Scotland the weather ruined any chance of finding out if they can play better.

Hard luck to those brave boys in green. I think I speak for all the English supporters when I say that we always wish you well, cheer you on, respect the Irish players and supporters etc. Home nation solidarity and all

Oh apropos nothing at all, any chance of beating France?

Great game yesterday, amazing atmosphere in the stadium - best banter ever from a guy from Cork behind us, genuinely hilarious.

Rugby fans are perfect. Been a while since I’ve done an international but I love the atmosphere.

I actually prefer sitting next to opposing supporters rather than strangers supporting my own team (England or club). The banter is generally more fun.
