Would love to see that last no arm tackle!

England were doing them all game.

Fair play. Looked a great game from the phone in the pub! Done often score 4 tries in Paris (ever) and lose.

Still didn't tonight! ;)

Iím not a big fan of a game that can be decided by a technical offence on the halfway line directly meaning a score and you lose.
Itís like Endo pulling Rodriís shirt on the halfway line last week, getting penalised and the referee automatically walking to the penalty spot with the ball.
Too many rules, too many offences, games decided by teams trading penalty kicks.

Great way to end the tournament and it's the best rugby tournament in the world (bar the World Cup of course). Well done France and England. Ireland just a little in front then 4 erratic, exciting teams hot on their heals. And Wales ....

What I never understand is why did England kick possession away instead of rucking/mauling to get further upfield. It makes no sense to me, just gave France possession and ultimately a penalty (no replay though of the decision 🙄)

Angus Gardener continues to be a terrible ref, how did he miss that knock on? England get their try anyway but that was shocking.

Almost as bad as giving a no arms tackle in the last minute by a player who wasnít on the pitch

I wasn't paying too much attention but did France not get the ball from a restart?
So bloody what? If you watch football to be absolutely miserable then go watch cricket.

Not a fair comparison at all  ;D

Great games today.  Scotland gave Ireland more of a game than I expected with some outstanding defence at times.

Was a good six nations, close games all over. England finally taking the brakes off and letting us see some actual rugby, long may it continue.

Now we are finally trusting our young players weíve got a great core to build a class team, just need to let go of the old guard now - Care, Cole, Daly etc. the key is finding a worldclass tight head prop our weakest position by far, Stuart is gash.

Donít think Chessum is a 6, heís far too slow and misses tackles, which was what made Lawes so exceptional playing that role.

Jordie Barrett signing for Leinster is a strange one. Seem to have stirred the natives over there too.

He's a nice option on the bench, can cover a number of positions.

With the amount of players we have coming through all the time I'm not that happy about this signing. Great player no doubt but I'd prefer to use our own. Will probably mean some of the young lads move to one of the other provinces.

Itís a good point actually because there are private schools too. In my mind the public schools are like Elton and Harrow. The c*ntís c*nts.

But come on now, chuck some money the womenís way. Itís the new millennium!

We don't have anything like them here. Our private ones are a fair bit cheaper I think.
