Scotland are definitely in with a shout. They were my pick to win the tournament at the start. I think they should have won v France.

If it was in Murrayfield I would be more confident of a win however its still very possible. England have become quite complacent. Owen Farrell seems to have completely bought into the hype around him and was dreadful on Saturday so you never know.

A bonus point win would have as good as rapped up the title but will just have to rack one up against England now.

Murray and Sexton a class apart. Big games from Best and Henshaw too.

I don't think we will need a BP win v England. We will just need to win by 8 points or more which is doable at home. We won 19-9 last time we played England at home.

England are unlikely to reel in our points difference. Supposing we beat Wales by 1 point England will have to beat Scotland by 30 points to equal Ireland's points difference.

They will then have to beat Scotland by 47 points plus for Ireland to need to win by more than 8 points in the final game. That is quite unlikely as they have never defeated Scotland by more than 40 points and this is a good Scotland team.

Basically if Ireland beat Wales without a BP and England win with a BP as expected Ireland will need a 8 point win. If England win without a BP then any win will do for Ireland assuming they beat Wales.

Totaly agree with this. Ireland should just have to win at home ...assuming neither team slips up in the other week. That said nboth fixtures are looking distincly iffy, I cant see Wales rolling over for Ireland and England struggled with the basics even if you take the rucks thing out of the Italy game....Scotland have shown theya re one of teh stronger teams in this years tournament.
Its highly unlikley England will beat Scotland by a wide margin, and frankly arent in any position to go chasing one from the off.

It really should come down to a straight game between England and Ireland to decide the title, and as things stand Id have Ireland as favourites in their own back yard.

Loving the Irish confidence. It's about time they stopped acting like the whipped dog of the rugby world.

Their fans are often too nice. Good to see a bit of bite from the likes of rodders and guns. Keep it up boys! Smile

I think Wales could just beat this over-confident Irish side (remember how the Irish were going to thrash Scotland to set up a slam (to add to 3 in their entire history?).

Ouch.... a chin shot and then a kick in the nuts. You're on fire today, Cyril! I'm glad Eddie has put a spark back into your step. Aussie confidence, you can't beat it. It's addictive and it's why I love most of them.

I think somebody (probably a mod) said the boards were too quiet recently. I'd tend to agree.

I predicted a Scotland win, plenty of others did too.

For this fixture I would of course be worried about Wales, they are a good side but possibly not a great side. Ireland often struggle against Wales when they are still in the championship but now they are pretty much out so I think it will be a narrow Ireland win.

Wayne Barnes will ref so he could also determine the result if he is in the mood. There is no way he should be ref for this game given England are in first place and Ireland in second on the table and since he went to school in Wales.

Were you in the lower threads? I think the policing is a bit more aggressive there and the mods have been up-gunned (I believe they have an 'extreme prejudice' remit).

He is English and Ireland and England are still in the hunt for the title. If Ireland lose they are more than likely out. You really think there should be an English/Welsh ref? Is it not a conflict of interest?

Wales fans were never happy when Rolland reffed Wales v France games despite Rolland living in Dublin his whole life.

I think the English are going to be for us anyway because they want the last game to mean something I'm told so that the Slam is sweeter on the lips.

So Wayne will probably give North a red card at 33 minutes.

Had to hurdle a raised leg at the last minute from a player laying in an offside position, doesn't look good but contact is as much do with the French player rolling into Toners foot and getting his arm clipped as much as anything

Without that thought Toney may have landed on his head

You think elbowing a players leg away is really dirty? Hardly worth a citing.

Toner's action looked clumsy, but it's something they might want to look at.

Love the reaction of the French posters. The French aren't really known for fair play.

You think elbowing a players leg away is really dirty? Hardly worth a citing.

Toner's action looked clumsy, but it's something they might want to look at.

Love the reaction of the French posters. The French aren't really known for fair play.

Neither are you lot.

And his leg ? Is Biology a sin over there ?

Scotland had to win sometime, Munk. It was only a matter of time. Fair dues to them.

Gents you should get your submissions over to the citing commissioners before the deadline today. Im sure they will be delighted to get your opinions on all of Ireland's dirty play.

He has a right to try and jump over a player obstructing entrance to the ruck, hes not exactly agile so made a mess of it

Too many tacklers lay behind the ruck these days Im surprised more don't get clattered and injured

You have a responsibility for player safety no matter what you're allowed to do. You're allowed to kick the ball, but if a player's head is there it's a red.

So if two players clash heads they both have to be sent off?

Depends on whether we are married or not.

I don't think Ireland have a reputation as a dirty team. More sinned against than sinning, I believe.

That's the sermon for the day. If you need any more theological advice you will have to wait angel

We all know that but contact doesn't mean its dangerous

Not sure if you're being stupid or facetious but it would have to be reckless.

Is that a new law?
