Six Nations Week 4

Post by Neill_M » Mon Mar 07, 2016 10:46 am

Sat 12th Mar 1:30pm Ireland v Italy Angus Gardner ITV/RTE (Freeview only)
Sat 12th Mar 4:00pm England v Wales Craig Joubert ITV/RTE (Freeview only)
Sun 13th Mar 3:00pm Scotland v France Glen Jackson BBC/RTE

Ireland surely will beat Italy, interesting to see if Scotland can beat a poor French team. Best game of the three should at Twickenham, will Mr Jones keep his word and not get involved in some pre-match verbals with Gatland?

Hendy out injured, but otherwise the fact that only 1 of our forwards is deeemed good enough to make the squad Says a lot about the weakness of our pack.

I wish the Irish could keep politics out of sport

Very sad to see Ian Madigan cannot move on

Not remotely possible in Ireland or anywhere else.

Don't care what Madigan wears at the RDS. It's part (a selective part) of his nation's history. I'd like to think he would have a wee bit more decorum than to wear them in Ireland duty.

Do you think Madigan thinks?

He doesn't do it on a rugby field

I get the 1916 reference, but why the Romanian flag?
