    Quite agree although I thought the first game was very unbalanced and against Italy without Parisse probably no great surprise. But the other two - stunning!

    John - I think two of my most enjoyable Twickenham experiences were against France in amongst French spectators, one of which we won the other lost. But great atmosphere and camaraderie at the end. And a group of us with the French went to celebrate together. Soccer? I don't think so.....

    Keep smiling - it's never as bad as you think!!

        Ian Ritchie, Chairman of the RFU has commented on England's performance in the Six Nations. He says that they underperformed in not winning the title.

        I disagree. No one within earshot of me or the people that I was with heard anything but positive comments about England's performance in beating the French - well, what else would you expect ?

        My interpretation is that England winning the match was far more important than a Six Nations title. I'm aware that perhaps winning titles increases marketability but, win or lose, you're preaching to the converted so, in terms of bottoms on seats it doesn't much matter anyway.

          Courtesy of No.1. son, off to Twickenham to-day - England v Wales, for what should be quite a contest. Weather looks to be kind. Hope I can find somewhere to park.

            A sublime day - weather superb, crowd in good form. Pity about the rugger. Best that can be said: England; a work still in progress - hopefully. The Welsh, as always tough and uncompromising, were unlucky, they ran out of time.

              Glory be ! Hallelujah!

              England made it - the Grand Slam that is. France walloped 31 - 21. See-saw game. All thru' the tournament the French have played with lead in their boots. The minute England arrives on the horizon they play like demented berserkers.
