I assume that it has not gone unnoticed that Ireland are the leading try scorers in the 6Ns. MexicanJoe is just fab.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

Just as well Ireland had a strong defender on that wing then.....Oh! Whose wing did Italy dander over to score twice?

I see the knives are still out for Joe. Reads like a bakebook page... Few were moaning too much when Ireland beat France in the RWC and were looking in decent shape. What has happened since is simply down to a catalog of key injuries. I'm actually surprised by how well Ireland have done. On paper, we should have been looking at a defeat to Wales and bigger hidings away from home. For a pack with as much grunt as schoolboy third XV, they've done pretty well to be remotely competitive. Of course, it helps when the opposition is a bit crap too but they're done alright. Ireland haven't just lost players, they've lost the x-factor players. The one-man wrecking machines, the SOBs, the healys, POM and Hendersons. Take that away and you have fek all to work with. All you can do is have good systems rather than having explosive talent.

My only negative would be the lack of a little more experimentation last week so try and develop a bigger international squad. That said, with the injuries a lot of guys are already being given a chance up front. No doubt he'll blood guys in the summer and autumn when the stakes aren't just as high.

Irish fans seem to have suddenly think they have a right to be at the top table. The domestic sides are a shadow of what they once were and the international side is decimated by injuries. Expectations need to be realistic.

That all has enough fact in it to be almost a believable hypothesis, but here's the rub. Joe coaches a boring safe brand of rugby, which is all wellish and goodish if you're winning, but football aside, there is little worse than boring losing rugby. Trophies cover a multitude of sins, but a losing yawn fest stinks the place out quicker than trap two with the door left open.

With England's resources they should be champions every year. I am consoling myself that every year they don't is a crushing defeat for the parcel of bawbegs. They can stick their Grand Slam up their jam roll.

Thankfully I wont see/hear it as I'll be exiting Dubz wif well bangin tunes pumpin in my pimped up ride.

Jesus wept that French side is beyond dung, as it was in the World Cup when Shinnerboots gurned his lamps out after beating the 2nd worst French team in living memory. The worst is the one we played a few weeks back.

Realism is needed and I believe most on here are in agreement with just how awful the French National team is.

French rugby is reaping the rewards of the foreign influx and the FFR will not tolerate it much longer.

I am watching the England v France womens game having switched over from the Leinster match at half time.
Needless to say I will be switching back- what an appalling standard of rugby to behold.
I appreciate that Kofi and Cockers champion the womens game but I don`t think its quite justifying my sky sports subscription just yet.

Playing at his own level, he has looked very good and speaks to the confidence Les has shown in him.
