Nicely taken try. Well done Italy.
Daly offers a lot but he is no tackler. That was an easy extra 30m from that weak effort.
Loads of mistakes from Eng.... not been great last two games.
Shocking handling errors , England will have to up there game massively against Wales and Ireland.
Happy with the result against Italy in the end, but definitely need to tidy up the play versus better teams. Can't remember the last time I thought Farrell had a really good game, he seems to have a bit of a temper these days and get on the wrong side of a ref, and whereas he used to be able to consistently nail every conversion or penalty he's looked shaky at times. Every other team seems to have a kicker at least as competent as he is nowadays.
Scotland v Wales game was an exciting watch. Some great tries and mixing up of tactics, rather than watching England who don't seem to vary their approach much at the minute.
Huge improvement from England, but I'm disappointed with some of the defence, and the score line does not compare well with the France v Itally scoreline.
Wales were lucky to take the win, with the red card (good call, though many get away with the same) having a big impact, and Liam Williams escaping a yellow soon afterwards. The fact that Scotland went over the line and narrowly got a try disallowed shows how close it was and how easily the result could have gone the other way.
Ireland looked pedestrian! No creativity, backs very lateral, easy to defend.
I only watched the England match as I didn't have time for the others. But now just watched the Fagerson red card and I have to say that opens a huge can of worms for me. Clearing our is going to become near impossible if that is the standard because every ruck will involve someone with their head down like Wynn Jones. The ability to remove people will become impossible because after the Willis accident you can be sure body rolling is going to come on the radar. If clearing out becomes nigh on impossible attacking play will become highly risky or dull as dishwater. Who wants the ball when you can penalise the opposition to death in defence.
Well thats France v Scotland for this weekend off due to the COVID outbreak in the French camp
Heinz leaving Gloucester, it's going from bad to worse. And to think I paid the increased premium for next years' season ticket.
Should it be rescheduled or Scotland given a walk-over?
Scotland are playing well are might fancy themselves to win, but they have no chance if they can't field a full strength team.
It looks like it'll get rescheduled rather than awarded as a walk-over although I'll be furious if it means we lose our English and French based players (our best players) which would be totally unfair when its not our fault!
There has been some chat about a mid-week game (Week Commencing March 8th) but not really sure that's fair either as we're due to play Ireland on the Sunday
Totally agree... giving Scotland a short turn around to the next game is not acceptable.
Johnson is an absolutely terrible pundit.
This French referee is making this an awful match to watch, total nit pick fest.
What an awful decision. Wales deserve to be ahead but that’s never a try, shocking.
That's an absolute joke of a try. If you're allowed to knock it on with your hands and stop it with your foot from going further forward that opens up the game for stupid abuse...
England needs to cut out giving away stupid penalties but with referring decisions like that what are you meant to do?
It’s a laughable decision, awful refereeing by the entire team, embarrassing. It’s not even close.
You know its a bad decision when a certain Welsh pundit is saying exactly that. That refereeing team should never be allowed near another game.
It’s mainly the TMO’s fault, he has every angle but no balls to overturn a simple decision. It should be spotted on field too though.
That ref actually wants shooting.
