    England will be desperate. They need to win with a bonus point and start to reel in the points difference ahead of next week.

    Wasn’t going to watch this but then I realised I’ve a load more beers, not much else for doing.

    Come on France. Beat England to win the Championship for Ireland. You can do it.

    Some fine beards on the Frenchmen

    Switched over to the BBC for this one.

    That’s a heavyweight panel! St. Andre, Johnson, O’Connell and Guscott.

    Blows the TV3 team of the inane Shane Horgan and two random dudes out of the water. Match commentary is bound to be superior too.

    Seemed like TV3 were paying their production team per replay: missed out on reviewing a lot of penalties, good tackles and turnovers I’d like to have seen again. Instead they were broadcasting images of guys receiving medical attention and players milling around waiting for scrum resets.

    Odd editing.

    Seems like a ton of English support travelled.

    Ireland's match was on ITV

    We will see how good this English side is.

    Their championship is on the line here.

    I have a feeling the pressure might be too much.

    Jones may be a spoofer.

    France might sneak this one.

    France by 9.

    Ah. Sorry I didn’t watch it there then.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,603 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    France were making good ground there even though the whistle had blown for a foward pass.

    ITV weren't great - I heard the phrase "the Irish are still paying some fiddles" and the commentator made reference to "Jordi Henderson"

    I see England getting five here. Tip the score board over until French legs give and then rampant second half!

    To be honest I'd like to see England get the bonus point so it'll be more exciting next week.

    Wild offload from Bonneval...

    Take it easy lad

    I disagree with your comments bout how good england need to be. Since jones came in, they have a won a slam and equaled the all time record of consecutive wins plus won a series in Australia.

    Ireland under schmidt have yet to do any of that.

    Ah. That ball was gifted to England with that pass to Robshaw earlier. France need to avoid making sloppy ball if they are to win in Paris.

    With England gaining a lot of ground on the pitch; they could be very powerful in this match.

    No. My heart wouldn't be able to take the pressure.


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 6,355 ✭✭✭ fitz


    England forcing it. C'mon the French defense!


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,220 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    I enjoy watching Anthony Watson play.

    Lightning when he gets going.

    I’d prefer to see England lose here as they are more likely to fold next week if things are going badly.

    Reminds of 2015 when england nearly pulled off a miricale

    You're a masochist. I will be over the moon if we win the trophy today. Feck the excitement :p


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,165 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    Thats clear taking out off the ball


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,603 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    France are showing signs of their last win against England in Paris yet again. It's good to see that happen in flow.
