England retain Calcutta Cup after dominant performance at Murrayfield

If he hadn't taken the very unlikely shot then england would have had front foot possession in the opposition half with zero risk of losing possession if the screwed it up. Instead Care took a shot that is extremely unlikely to succeed (although, kudos on nailing it, that part is at least well done) which normally would have just ended up with Farrell stepping up to do the same thing, but with a much higher chance of success.
Why not use the ball when you have it? What's his rush to get rid of it?

England retain Calcutta Cup after dominant performance at Murrayfield

I missed the first few minutes of the game so wasn't aware until just now that Danny Care threw away free attacking ball with another drop goal. That attention whoring little turd makes me so angry it hurts.

Ireland start campaign with comfortable win over Scotland

The cover tackling and workrate in defence to stop Heaslip and Sexton from scoring was outstanding, I didn't see the game live so haven't seen any more analysis of that break that what is above, but Sexton's pass looks suspect to me.

France snatch victory from England in Six Nations thriller in Paris

I'm furious that Goode fell for the dummy at the end, I think that basic error in fullback play could well have cost us the game.

I know what you mean about Fickou starting, but I think using basterroud (sorry for the spelling again) as a bludgeon for 60 minutes to tire out the defence before bringing in the whippet is a good idea. The commentators remarked as Fickou was coming on about how with English players being knackered and suffering cramps the change from wrecking ball to evasive running might be deadly. And it was.

I hope we do, and I look forward to seeing our pack let loose on a team that doesn't have the sheer size that France were able to field because I think that we could be quite destructive if we play like that against normal sized humans

Sarzesky (sorry for the spelling) stayed on as well, and he outpaced Launchberry to give Ficou a chance on the outside

Yer but Danny Care is an arrogant, self-centred shit, he doesn't get his name in print as much if he lets Farrell do the job.

Wales get past defiant Italy in Six Nations opener in Cardiff

That pass was comical. I'm glad it wasn't give because it was a good try and kicked some life into the game for us neutrals. But it was still clearly forward. I don't really agree with this new 'direction of the hands' malarky, I think it leads to some very dubious results.

Jacques Burger's tackling masterclass on Rugby Tonight

Seems like a great player to me, but I would put Alesana Tuilagi at the top of that list, I think he was massively influential for those bastard tigers for almost a decade.
