6 Nations over for another year - WELL DONE WALES!

So thats another 6-nations over. England, Scotland and Ireland managed another year of less than inspiring underachievment. Italy go from strength to strength and even beat Scotland in a VERY good game. AZZURI YO! France got there nose bloodied by a Wales on a roll. Amazing when you think Wales and more specifically the rugby plating part of Wales is so small compared to even Irish rugby. Well done Wales !!

Hey ho! Just the Heineken Cup and the tail end of the Magner's league to go and then the rugby-desert that is the summer Roll on next year where I have every confidence that the Irish team will actually turn up and play ;)

Agreed, it was another cracking Super Saturday of Rugby. I didn't see our game (Italy V Scotland) thank God, but I saw the England V Ireland & Wales V France games.

Like yourself Steve, I was a wee bit disappointed in the Irish performance, and it was a cruel ending for O'Gara's first captaincy. Still, you've got to hand it to Wales. They have been, by far, the most consistent team throughout the entire tournament.

Aye indeed it was a bit of a damp squid for the boyo Ronan. But there will be other days for him to shine. And there are a few bright sparks in the Irish gloom.. Kearney is a wonder I have high hopes for him in the future.

But over all this was Wales Season, they played fantastic rugby while the rest of us just futtered about.
...except Italy who i think played their hearts out and really should have had Ireland's scalp as well as Scotlands.
