Round 5
19/03/2016

Wales v Italy - 2.30
Ireland v Scotland - 5.00
France v England - 8.00

Surely we have to start these games at the same time in such a Competition. I appreciate a lot of people enjoyed the last days circus in 2015 but these games should be kicking off at the same time IMO as it gives an unfair advantage to those going last - Any reasoned thoughts on this or just the usual bile thumbsup

How comes it's the same exact fixtures on the last weekend? Surely not down to chance?

At this stage there are only 2 teams capable of getting the grand slam and they are the ones playing last on the last day.

Makes perfect sense Whistle

Not enough bile in these posts - Maybe if there's a genuine rotation it can be acceptable and the order is slightly changed but we get to go first again Sad Sad  - might not be a bad thing, it seems to get the backs moving thumbsup thumbsup

To answer the OP, personally I've got nothing against it at all. I quite like it. Not sure about an unfair advantage. The team still has to go out there and win. Adds more pressure than if they didn't know what they had to score, blah, blah.

Actually, results from the first two games could inadvertently play France, for example, back into the tournament. Before the games France may think they're pretty much out but odd results in the other two matches could give them more to play for and therefore more incentive to win. If they'd all been played at the same time then wouldn't have known this and they might not have tried so hard, etc (even though they're consummate professionals of course).

Swings and roundabouts, Ruby, swings and roundabout....

People who call for all games to happen together must not like rugby very much..... it's like people who follow athletics saying they'd like the 100, 200, 800 and 1500 metre finals all taking place at the same time..... or people who like tennis (God help them eejits) demanding that the male and female final takes place at the same time.

I like rugby, therefore I want to see rugby.  I don't care what advantage an hour or three might give to one team over another.... I want to see teams play.  I enjoy watching a good game.  Three games is better than one.... and England can have the bloody advantage..... though it won't be much of a one coz it'll be them and France fighting for the title anyway Wink

Think about the poor guy with the trophy and the coloured ribbons. If they all started at the same time he could be in the wrong place. Even the Jaguar he's been given wouldn't be fast enough.

They'd have to make yet another 'copy' of the 'real' cup. So many failsafe copies now doing the rounds that it's probably safe to say they've never actually made a real one. Rory will bite into it this time to make sure he's getting the real one.... Whistle

You gotta speak Spanish to get through to him. Tell him to meet you on a street corner somewhere.

It's no conspiracy. Just a plan well executed................
