So if we win today we'll probably finished 2nd due to our better points difference.
Make it so lads.
C'mon Ireland.
C'mon France

Italy have to be the dumbest team in the 6Ns.
They've given 3 penos away already (20mins) in Scotland's 22m - let them have the ball. My impression is that Parisse is part and parcel of this problem.
Scotland will soon realise that it's only a matter of time before they get their chance.

Wales are the only country I like to see lose through blatant cheating

Worth noting only non Roman away win was England in Cardiff

Think Im right in saying we wouldve finished second even without bonus points

They survived for 20 minutes by blatant cheating. There was enough there for a penalty try fairly early.

Clock didn't stop for injuries after 80 minutes so they had an advantage with their yellow card.

Did he mention hosing the pitch down for three hours before playing us, or mention who bit George North?
the irony being that ad-hominen and appeal to majority are the most often used defences of the apologist.

Wales also sent a forward on for the sinbinned prop and tried to get away with not replacing him

The Welsh will whinge and whine their way to a few more years of referee bias in their favour. And why not​, it works every time for them.

Took them 20 extra minutes to prove me wrong - I'll happily claim a moral victory on this one.

I mean everyone complains about referee bias (so we must all be wrong!) but the Welsh turn it into a semi-official hate campaign and have their media join in with their coaching team and the fans.

When they were repeatedly tip tackling people despite the law being clarified and it being clearly illegal they didn't look to their defense or tackling technique, instead they blamed everyone else and hounded referees.

As Flip says, it totally worked for them, referees seemed to be terrified of making a difficult decision against Wales. Like say a penalty try.

will try to dig it up but think Simon Thomas tweeted something about Tipuric and Rob Evans having the best passing/handling stats in the Welsh team; France were there for the taking in the second half but they didnt take them

Paris next year for us doesnt look intimidating at all, fixture list could be key though

Just got to see the the France v Wales game now, not all of it, just from the 80th min on. Mad Ted Mad! Samson Lee gets binned in the 82nd min and comes back on to play another 8 mins!!! :lol:
No French handling errors for 20 mins, hats off.
How in the hell was a pen try not awarded?
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!
