France Italy hasn't been too bad so far, France looking a lot better this week, Italy looking their usual bullish selves. Outclassed by France in the end though.

Yeah, try fest on hand here I think.

Anyone catch the Super rugby, Chiefs vs Blues? That was a try fest, 14 of them all up.

Do you think they'll have better cameras at Cardiff? The picture quality on this France/Italy game isn't so hot where I am.

There'll be the best cameras money can buy I would imagine. I wish I was back in Cardiff, it'll be an absolutely fantastic atmosphere.

Smashing. I think France have this one in the bag. Who do you think will win England v Scotland? I haven't gotten to watch their matches so I'm not sure what their form is like.

If the same England team as last week turn up they'll win. But Scotland are no joke, they're improved a lot, but at the end of the day I don't think their defence will be able to hold back the English onslaught.

Well I think it's great that you're taking an interest tbh. It's always a fantastic tournament, and creates so many fantastic weekends. The atmosphere is always great for matches, packs out the pubs.

Yeah, pay TV is pretty much the only way you can check out any European/UK rugby in this country. That or go to a sports bar, but I like to be able to change the channel when I feel like it.

I hope they televise a good deal of the British & Irish Lions tour to SA later in the year.

Don't expect to see many English players in that Lions squad!

Haha yeah. It's a pretty enviable set of players to be able to pick from, I imagine it'll have O'Driscoll, Williams and O'Gara for starters. I don't know too much about the forwards for those teams though.

I wouldn't put O'Gara in for number 10, I'd prefer Steven Jones there.

Forwards, I'd say...

1. Gethyn Jenkins
2. Jerry Flannery
3. Adam Jones
4. Ryan Jones
5. Paul O'Connell
6. Martin Williams
7. Tom Croft
8. Jamie Heaslip

I hope he's ok, I'm a Tigers fan. Although Dupuy is a good 9 as well. Watch out for Dupuy in the French side soon.

Hopefully it was just a knockout rather than an actual neck injury. Head doesn't play well against hip.

Powell out, that's a bit bunk. But he wasn't looking at his best in the past few games. Ryan Jones can fill in juuuuust fine.

In southern hemisphere news, the Brumbies should be kicked out of the Super 14 after this loss to the Lions. Shameful.

I hope Wales v Ireland cheers me up.

Yeah, this is a very scrappy game. Huge crowd. Scotland within range of winning it but it'll be hard work.

Yeah man that kick needed to double-jump, it would have made it. He'll definitely kick this one.
