Wales keep title hopes alive with win over France in Paris

You have an embarrassment of riches. I hope for England's sake that France continue to blow hot and cold. I enjoy watching them immensely because of it.

Italy score late penalty try to upset Scotland at Murrayfield

Completely agree about Parisse. The man is an absolute legend. I can't think of a single player in the world who has better led a 'struggling' international team. He will be hugely missed when he is no longer part of the 6 Nations, by Italians obviously but also by a huge number of other fans.

I thought the same thing. I assumed it'd be 63.5KiloNumber10.

Once again I agree. France just need to reconnect with that style of playing. I wonder if professionalism and the 'percentage game' is suffocating the traditional style and flair of the French game. That is probably just a cliché though.

Ireland stay on track with victory over England in Dublin

Perhaps, but Ireland had the referee in the palm of their hand, mainly because England set the tone early as being the team who were most likely to give away stupid penalties.

This was a great game, highly enthralling at the finish. I thought both teams played well but kudos to Italy. They exerted a lot of pressure at the end and that penalty try was well-deserved.

I'm more than a little angry that Sergio Parisse isn't credited with the try though, because he's in my fantasy team. ESPN, the referee and Scotland can all go %^£$ themselves. I wanted those 5 points.

I watched this game, which was disappointing, because I had some paint drying in the other room which I could have enjoyed.

Ireland stay on track with victory over England in Dublin

Ireland totally deserved the win, they out-classed us tactically and on the pitch. Their work at the breakdown was good, if not excellent, but England totally lacked teeth in that department. We're missing Launchbury massively. Atwood and Cruiz just didn't look the part.

The Irish do love their high ball and it worked for them, although I think they'd need to tighten up their kicking if they are going to use that tactic against the southern hemisphere teams.

I thought England's pack was very weak and gave the backs nothing much to play with. I understand that the England backline looked unimpressive but they had very little ball to get going with. Our forwards cost us a shot at the game.

Lastly, and frustratingly, once again stupid penalties hurt us. We looked rattled early on and apart from one section of the game we looked out-classed.

So well played Ireland, good luck for the rest of the tournament.

Guy, unlike your wife, we are pleased that you've pulled out before this reached a messy conclusion.
