Is everyone out enjoying the weather? Have yourselves an open thread then. I’m off for a lie down after a cracker in Paris left the nerves somewhat shredded. Get in there …

  1. The EU must have an awful lot of money lying around, spending it on stuff like this. God bless ’em. Maybe they can resurrect Bruce Lee and have him in their next action flick.

  2. I don’t know about racist but it was pretty scary stuff. The more we are Meaning of course, they’re coming to get us all!

  3. The game in Paris was a real drama. England was lucky at the end.

    But the Irish really showed it to the Scots yesterday, didn’t they?

  4. England woz what? That was a hard-won and well-deserved victory!

    France’s try (and Parra’s fantastic conversion), which brought them back to within two points, only came about because our back row had just been wrecked and we had to put a hooker at No 8.

  5. It must be murder being a Jock.

    They’ve perfected the art of playing effective rugby and then losing.

  6. That was a hard-won […] victory!

    Yeah, a hard won 2 points win against a poorly playing and shapeless French team.

    That’s rugby. Its war, and attrition is an aspect that needs to be managed as well as any other.

  7. daytripper –

    Every country on the planet would take a one-point win in France no matter how it comes.

    If you’re not man enough to congratulate a team on a good win then rugby isn’t your thing.

  8. England has a very young team and that kind of performance today would make any team proud.

    Of course, our lads are going to teach these youngsters a few salutary lessons at Twickenham. They’ll be all the better for it.

  9. Nothing to do with being man enough. England should have buried them. France played abysmally.

    Was a great game of rugby though. Next week should be too, we don’t have a bad record at Twickenham.
