Same for England's last try maybe ? It's having the ball under control I think.

But they were always going to give both.

Wales making a lot of changes against Italy.

Gatland likes to think there are about 30 players who can slot in to the first team without lessening it.

Ooh Just realised Thomas Young (making his Wales 6N debut tomorrow) is (Only the good) Dai Young's son. Time flies.

Good Luck to him smiling smiley

I doubt that's the case but in a WC year experience will count for a lot. Also with rugby being so attritional there's always going to be injuries.

Italy at home on their day always have the potential to bite you in the arse if you take them too lightly! But can't really see anything but a pretty substantial W for Wales, whoever they turn out.

Round 3 fixtures (a bit early but I may not get a chance later)

Saturday

France v Scotland 14.15

Wales v England 16.45

Sunday

Italy v Ireland 15.00

Might be a bit late with the update..

England are making a significant mistake by travelling today, coming through Newport at about five oclock is probably not the best thing to be doing, going through the Brynglas tunnels, said Gatland. Theres a good chance tractors and buses will hold them up. Thats going to be an experience for them.

.... Gatland telling the tractor squad to zero in.

Still all to play for, if Wales play as they did today can't see them taking Ireland - could come down to the wire!

I think Ireland could beat Wales. I don't think Scotland can beat England.

Agree - in fact I would go 70-30 on Ireland winning and the same (or more) the other way on England-Scotland. In a strange position of wanting England to win the 6N but being happy for Wales to get the Slam, so be happy either way!

Jeremy Guscott thought Wales lost their concentration at halftime maybe they thought they had it in the bag (Wales very rarely put their foot down when on top).

The WRU also (with extremely brilliant timing) announced the merger of the Ospreys and the Scarlets last week - then rolled back on it (or something else happened - it's always murky down in Welsh rugby politics). Shouldn't have affected Wales but you just never know - Ken Owens (the hooker) was definitely talking a lot about it during the week.

Just an example of the current Welsh Rugby politics - statement from the Ospreys on Sunday.

The tedious narrative that the Ospreys are somehow facing an impending financial challenge is not only entirely false, but malicious propaganda by those for whom the demise of the Ospreys would be a twisted convenience.

Final round tomorrow and a chance for a few to make some bold predictions maybe?

Fixtures are:

Italy v France 12.30

Wales v Ireland 14.45

England v Scotland 17.00

There's an argument over the roof now in Cardiff.

Apparently last time Wales & Ireland agreed to close it the WRU soaked the pitch. Life is so political these days.

messageRe: EDF 6 Nations Predictor Game (Rugby)

And Wales approached the 6 Nations executive as opposed to Ireland, when the norm is to ask the opposing team.

WRU making friends and influencing people (both inside Wales and outside)

Looks like it (the roof) is going to be open - also the weather forecast is for rain all day in Cardiff.

It's also St Patrick's weekend of course.
