Didn't they do well
Certainly can not grumble with 42-0 win start
Wales normally dont start well but build up momentum as the 6 nations goes on and even though that was a bit of thrashing for poor old Italy I still felt that we had more in the tank if needed.
Its always nice to watch any team playing well executed running rugby but always just that bit nicer when its your own team
Scotland got the losing defensive point in Dublin,but personally I thought they were the better looking team,albeit losing the match. Not a brilliant start for either of them,but still time to learn from the mistakes and build for both teams.
Am looking forward to this afternoons match in Paris which has every possibility of being a corker of a game,though sadly for france their current on form winger damian penaud took an injury in training yesterday,so that will be an advantage for England.
The average age of the french team tomorrow is 24 with many much younger and this will be the youngest and most in experiences french team ever to take to the field.
Be interesting to see if they are really up to taking the knocks that will certainly be coming there way from the english defence !! They are all professional players,but the level of physicality does go up a notch when playing test rugby !!
France are going to build into a great team again,if that starts today we will have to wait until later to know. England the world cup vice champions certanly wont give the french many chances. Both teams are going to have to work hard to get the win today. Bring it on
I shall be wearing my French shirt today but as long as its a damn good game I am not hugely bothered who wins.
