England avenge Cardiff loss with convincing victory over Wales at Twickenham

He was pretty pants to be fair, watching him run across the pitch at one point was like looking some U13's match or something... ran across the bloody pitch and still got screwed over..

Not surprised Burrell was pissed at being subbed, could have left him on and brought Tuilagi onto the wing instead of May.

It might sound harsh, but when BOD leaves the green jersey, he just packs up and says, 'now is the time.' The build up to him leaving has been great but imo has not overshadowed the games themselves. The last think I want to see is another Shane Williams Wales thing, where he had about 100 last games - last game at home, last game away, last game in the 6n, last autumn international, last summer international, last last last game, ok this really IS the last game, ok we'll have a tribute last game now, ok now I'm actually truly finally going now game, just kidding game, ok now I'm done game, peace out game, ciao game...

Don't want to see the entire Ireland team running round with BOD or 13 on the back of their shirts...

I don't mean to take anything away from Williams or BOD, they're both fantastic players and deserve a huge amount of credit for their efforts, but BOD certainly gives me the impression he wants everyone to remain fully focussed on Ireland winning the 6N, and not turn the whole focus on him retiring.

That would be impressive considering he isn't going to be playing ;)

O2 Inside Line - Season 4 Episode 8

Then again; and I might be wrong here, wasn't there media talk this time last year about BOD retiring at the end of the 6N tournament? Ireland did pretty bad that year...

I know it's hard to compare year for year, players mind frames change, players change etc.. But Ireland could be shaky..

I wish them all the best and hope they pull out a win for the sake of Mr BOD!

England v Italy is going to be a big game.

IF Ireland beat France; which is going to be bloody hard as it's away then, I can imagine it could possibly be point for point, so Irelands points difference will more or less stay the same. That means England has to pile on 50 clear points on Italy - Which is doable.. but in Italy it could be difficult..

Leigh Halfpenny injured making brave try-saving tackle on Luther Burrell

Not entirely sure how you can compare the two? Both Lewsey and JOC's tackle were made from the rear quarter of the attacking player, 1/2p's tackle was made from the front quarter...

The only way they can be comparable is if Lewsey/JOC overtook the tackler and came in from the front. OR if 1/2p let Burrell pass him and tackled from behind.

1/2p is a solid player but my money is going to be on Burrell's power and size. A bit extra, 1/2p dislocated his right shoulder, didn't damage his neck at all.. so I'm not entirely sure how him hitting with his left shoulder would have prevented any injury (unless of course we delve into realms of pre existed shoulder conditions etc) so all in all we're disagreeing on something potentially irrelevant.. 1/2p tackled badly and got injured with his leading shoulder but also prevented the try...
