Well done to Ireland for not giving in, but they were outclassed today.

Wales were outstanding today and deserved the win and the Grand Slam.

You spoke too soon Andy. Well done to Scotland for an unbelievable comeback.
I guess a draw means the Calcutta cup remains north of the border for another year

Very well played by Scotland. Totally outclassed England in the second half. Only sheer luck and desperation gave England the Draw.

Looks as if the World Cup will be a walkover until Wales play NZ in the final...

Unbelievable comeback from Scotland, it looked like England had it in the bag after dominating the first half.

Full credit to Scotland for outplaying England in the second half.

Fantastic game of Rugby and just shows what a great and unpredictable tournament the 6 Nations can be.

Very nearly three strikes for me today :shock:

My hoped for results were wins for Italy, Ireland and England.

England Ladies showing the men how its done.

Beating Scotland 80 points to 0, giving them a Grand Slam Championship.

I think this has been the best weekend of rugby I have know
The Italy France game was good to watch a good warm up
People say that Italy dont deserve a place in the six nations but you underestimate them at your peril

The England Scotland game was outstanding they will still talk about that in 100 year time !
Wales will be strong in the world cup it will be the best chance they have ever had you can say that !

I thought Ireland would have been more dangerous but they were pulled apart

We are still in Cardiff recovering from yesterday. 8)
Unbelievable rugby. :P
Fantastic atmosphere around town, in pubs and at the game.
My wife was Irish and I was Welsh for the game, Scottish in the pub afterwards.
Rugby at it's best. Sportsmanship, no grief.
40 year dream fulfilled. :roll:

Thankfully with only the odd exception this Jim is as it should be, no prejudices just an appreciation for teams that play well no matter what shirt you wear.

It was also good to see the stadiums fall silent, and complete silence, at the start for the for the New Zealand situation, rather than clapping for a minute like they do at kissball matches (as they're clearly incapable of keeping their traps shut :wall: ).

Proper respect displayed by circa 75,000 people that are all psyched up is truly outstanding.

Hey Stig.
Always fancied Cardiff for a rugby weekend.

I'm going to the NEC next weekend, are you going?

Next year!
