France ease to comfortable victory over Italy at wet Stadio Olimpico

u were lucky FelipeG. It was awful. I remember seeing 19 handling errors for one team, 17 for the other popping up on the screen at one stage....that doesn't include really crap kicks obviously (eg out on the fulls).

Appalling match, sucked the life out of me as I endured it. Probably fell asleep straight afterwards...

France could be so good, but aren't (allowed be)....

Such a pity.

The Wraparound from Rugby HQ - Week 1

he needs to be standing up - makes a big difference (eg many of the US shock jock radio presenters stand in the studio, they don't sit!)

Slade and Wade score as England Saxons defeat Irish Wolfhounds in Cork

basically, Rugbydump, most people want to see Sean O Brien tearing into Chris Ashton ...so if you could oblige, that would be 100% fantastic!

Test Rugby Results - November 15th weekend

bokshark I'm making my suggestion based on actual results of actual matches. Them be different to the last time or the time before for de Autumn internationals, from memory, when it seemed like all the top 3 SH teams won everything...and in gen, this time so far, many of the matches were closer than expected (eg Scotland and NZ) and an interesting number were close in general (eg Italy, Wales Romania) maybe things are, broadly speaking, leveling out a bit.

SH are still to the fore thou I would say.

The mull cover the other fairly obvious point well....rugby is a game played in all conditions, and it may be v wet next October in eh Wales and England!

Ireland upset South Africa with impressive physicality in Dublin

Hi Bey: eh yes I have - I live in Ireland.

I'm basing what I said on listening to experts on radio, in print and TV - former players and professional rugby journalists - all of whom said Ireland didn't have a hope. Former International (and now pundit) Trevor Hogan went for Ireland, but I didn't hear any others. They may have been out there, surely someone else along with Hogan gave Ireland a sniff- but they were very much in the minority.

General fans felt likewise, in as much as I can call my own personal encounters representative. (they aren't but they are as representative as any others)
