I like most right thinking people don't like the AB. However, to accuse them of getting the rub of the green is unfair. Actually, one of the only things I like about the AB is the fact that when thy get beaten they don't bleat about it, no matter how much they want to. Note the loss to England when they had food poisoning. We should congratulate and move on.
The first week England and Ireland were both caught cold, woke up and played well enough to win. England stopped a good French side playing at home and were the dominant team but for two break away tries would have beaten France comprehensively. England have not played at home yet and I think they are in a good position to move on and beat Ireland who despite two convincing wins haven't played well at all. Ireland's pack are not as strong as the English pack and I fear they may come unstuck with a pernickety referee. »
