  1. Think the bookies tell you all you need to know.

    Paddypower has England 3/1 to win. Ireland 3/10
    The handicap is 9 points.
    Odds on England winning by 13+ points 35/1.
    Odds on Ireland winning by 13+ points 11/8
    Think sits been a long time since we’ve seen odds like that against England in the 6 Nations

  2. Believe it or not, but my post last night didn’t ‘stick’. Anyway, opined that Ireland were a solid looking, well drilled & coached side whom would likely prevail by 12. Well, got the latter part wrong.. like a few others. That Ireland ‘are the best in the world’, presumably on the back of their home AB win, proved a hollow & short lived boast. So the super coach, Joe Schmidt, suddenly has to go back to the drawing board to rescue his 6N campaign from potential world beaters to being egg beaters. Likewise with England, now with their tails up. All the likely talk will now be that they are back on track & that Eddie is their resurrected saviour after all. How 1 game can change the axis of word rugby!? Well, that’s yet to be proven, especially in the away from home WC. However, with only Wales likely standing in their 6N way, away, being of probable consequence, the Slam will be a foregone of course. We’ll see, but will a game plan of ball carrying bosh, kicking it & shovelling it be enough? Maybe. 1loss though & it will all change again.
