The Irish definitely deserved to win yesterday, they were by far the better team and more "up for it".
The thing about the English side (and I say this as an Englishman) is that we are incapable of disciplined rugby! We keep giving stupid penalties away that even teams at lower levels have learnt not to give! And this is even more important when the ref is slightly leaning towards the home side like Mr Joubert was yesterday (and as a qualified ref it galls me to say that, as we should be impartial and not swayed by pressure/location/etc.)
If Wales beat Ireland, that'll throw the 6N wide open again!
There's weather out there - must be time to RIB!
(Or dive, or ref rugby, or.......)
