The story so far…


As a fallow 6 Nations weekend approaches, time perhaps to reflect on what we have seen so far:

- Cracking rugby;

- Five of the six teams have achieved at least one victory in their opening two matches;

- England’s late, late shows are doing my heart no good at all;

- Two-thirds of all games have been edge of the seat affairs decided by one score;

- Attacking intent is evident even if, to date, defences have largely prevailed;

- Italy’s progress has at best stalled – and calls for Georgia to replace the Azurri in the competition are, whilst probably unrealistic, no longer without merit;

- The number of injuries gives lie to any suggestion that the Six Nations should in future be cut from 7 weeks to 5 – yes it’s frustrating but the fallow weekends are important to allow teams to rest and recuperate.

Can’t wait for next weekend…
