    So hoping beyond hope for a French upset to blow the championship open.

    Heads telling me 9 point England win, hearts hoping for a French smash and grab.

    Allez les bleus!!

    I have minimal hope for France in this. Hope I am wrong but I predict some early English penalties and try then the French will switch off and that will be that.

    Hope it's not the case because I am getting a bit tired from itv bigging up the English but France are in no great shape

    I'd agree, think England win this one big.
    Only hope is that Bastereaud's return provides inspiration.

    France have the players to make this a contest but they lack the attitude, coaching and away form to register in this kind of fixture.

    Absolutely nothing to admire about French rugby these days, particularly at an administrative level.

    Expecting France to put in a big 1st half performance.
    They have the pack to put it up to England
    Need big game from Parra

    France couldn't play like they did against Wales a second week in a row; that implies a level of consistency so I expect them to play even worse.

    England 37 France 17.

    I think so. Watched the France Wales game online last week. Website is a pox to navigate but it's there.

    Never seen such a downbeat looking French team during the anthems.

    Does the audio sound tinny or something for anyone else?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,174 ✭✭✭ troyzer


    That is the most shocking minute of rugby I've ever seen.

    France are a disgrace.

    This is game over now in my opinion

    Wonder was there some blocking there to stop a tackle on Daly?

    France beat us religiously from 86 to 99 long gone are the days a French side struck fear into people.
