Hmm, Christ knows what France will produce. In either half... The big Bastauread is going to be roaring after being dropped last week

Those big guys could batter us or be a liability after 40 minutes.
If England play with the pace and intensity of last week, I think we can run them off their feet and have a huge last 20.
If that happens, I think we will win big.

Shame Scotland didn't beat Ireland (IMHO!)... but at least Ireland and Wales were denied the TBP...

Tomorrow should be a cracker..

I was watching with low volume whilst playing pokemon. (kids....) I'm not a fan of mahoney, and that looks pretty accident-on-purpose

The French women haven't turned up in the first half. 24-0 with the bonus point sewn up at half time, including two tries with one in the bin.

Omen ? (1 chicken, 2 chickens..)

Another great day at Twickenham, hope we can do it in Cardiff.

France absolutely abject. We basically scored the same try 3 times! We were so dominant in the first half it unfortunately made the second a total non event. Sinckler is looking a liability in niggly situations and could easily have been in serious bother today.

It's a shame Sinckler misbehaves as he really is very good (perhaps his mentor, Marler, has been passing on his worst moves).

Something was done to Sinkler before he reacted with his slap, the same player did something that just wasn't shown on the replay. 18 months ago he would have launched into the player with his fists. He's turning into a real quality prop we need to cut him some slack.

I think Sinckler can turn it off if he wants, he seems to be the one provoking and knows what hes doing.

I've not seen it ....and it's no excuse but I have heard that he was retaliating for a slap he received... he should know better. Another team may well try to wind him up...

Another excellent performance.

Well done to Eddie Jones, our tactics were spot on, but also to the players for executing and adapting to the situation (awol French full back).

Its easy to say now that he has just scored a hatrick, but Jonny Mays improvement over the last 3 years really has been impressive. He always had pace and talent but too often took the wrong options or ran across the field into isolation only to get turned over. Now he is one of the most complete and dangerous wingers in world rugby.

Any team will miss Maro but I thought Lawes was excellent as a replacement and that tackle on Bastareaud...


Wales have looked average so far (that game on Saturday was absolute dross) but sure they will improve in time for Cardiff in 2 weeks so it should be a cracker. Whatever happens though the improvement since 12 months ago, admittedly when we were plagued by injuries, has been dramatic.

Was it only me shouting at wee Fordy to keep the ball in play to push for 50? A big win, yes, but to be so close to doing the dance......!
