    Ireland have a problem, they were hot favourites for 6 nations and maybe for world cup but for most of this championship they've been a bit meh....fair play to Wales though, they out tacticked us and fnished strongly

    Wales have done well, just wish they would be a bit more expansive. International rugby is getting really dull.

    England started like a train. 3 tries in less than 15 mins, some lovely handling too.

    Scotland playing like it’s a game of touch rugby in the park.

    Omg there you go and fully deserved, Eddie Jones has now been in charge of 2 appalling 2nd half displays in 3 games.

    Onky listened to the second half on the way, but we sounded tired. Wouldn't be surprised if Eddie has been beasting then in training preparing for the world cup

    Very rare that I watch League but the NRL match between Melbourne Storm and Sydney Roosters is on Sky Sports Mix and it is an absolute belter.

    What. A. Game. Roosters won it with a golden point drop goal. Awesome entertainment. NRL is light years ahead of Super League in terms of spectacle.

    Wow. Amazing by Bradford to beat Leeds. That club was a disaster and that is a step back. Wonderful scenes at Odsall.

    Telling Jordan Lilley he wasnt wanted back at the club 24 hours before they play them probably wasnt the best idea. Bradford's a proud old club, the sooner they can sort themselves out the better.

    Wigan gave a good account at Warrington, a difficult season but one which was always going to be challenging

    Catalans should break the attendance record in SL era as the play Wigan in the Nou Camp. 30k expected, unfortunately it's the week before magic weekend so expect to have a low turn out for that.

    I love league but seeing it limp along is really saddening, such entertainment value and yawnion ends up being the more popular of the two

    Union is the superior game, that's why.

    The only league that even matters is the NRL.

    Onto the next world cup now international cricket has finished for the the summer

    Very surprising to see Te'o left out, guess that means Eddie is very confident in Manu's fitness. If so he is probably in a group of one.

    No surprises to see Brown left out, its time to move on.

    Yeah, Brown is done. Good player for a long time but everyone has a shelf life.

    Australia 47 New Zealand 26. Blimey.

    Also means that New Zealand are no longer the number one ranked side in the world. WALES are now number one, at least until our inevitable defeat at Twickenham tomorrow!

    They are beatable, but that score is surprising
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    They had a bloke sent off just before half time. Unusual for a referee to actually have the balls to do that for an All Black.

    No Cipriani, Te'o or Hartley in the squad.

    As we were all otherwise occupied yesterday it got overlooked that England beat Wales

    By the looks of it Paddy took out his anger on a shower door in Exmouth and ripped his toe open and broke it.

    It's only a game Pad.....but hope you are feeling ok after a rough night sir x

    I actually watched the rugby rather than the Wolves as I currently don't have a computer to find ways of watching games that aren't televised (and the former was on TV). Wales have done their usual pre-world cup trick which is seemingly to not let any of the players practise with a rugby ball for the whole of pre-season (they've been going on sprints up the Alps carrying tyres instead) which led to about 400 handling errors. England were clinical mind. But a very annoying way to bring the unbeaten run to an end.

    As for Pad, that sounds brutal.

    Only 2 THP's is risky. Feel for Harry Williams.

    No Hughes or Te'o is excellent though.

    Yes, all the best Pad. Can't take you anywhere, etc.

    I had a somewhat painful night. Think there is quite the legal claim on the way. Two panes of the shower screen collapsed as a bolt was sheared through and guillotined my foot. Broken toe, nice big gash down to the bone and nerves exposed. Only the 7 hours in casualty.

    Plus side. Morphine is REALLY NICE
