Not a great result for Tigers there

So farewell to Jonny.

As an Englishman and avid rugby fan it's hard to get the proper perspective of his standing in the world game. To my mind he is unquestionably the greatest fly-half England have ever been blessed with and I personally think he it in the top two greatest fly-halves the game has ever produced. As we all know he was plagued by injury and perhaps wasn't ever the same player again but between 2000 - 2003 he was pretty much peerless.

BBC Sport's Iain Robertson has said that he regards Wilkinson as "one of the best two or three goalkickers in England's history". To my mind that doesn't give him anywhere near enough credit.

He is one of only three Englishmen that would even come close to an all time XV. A true legend.

Just a completely dedicated and admirable professional and, by all accounts, all round top bloke.

I've robbed this from The Guardian:
quote:

"I'm not necessarily proud of the World Cups and the grand slams won or lost, the amount of points I scored, this record or that. What I am proud of is I have searched for the best of me and I have been a team man without fail." Thanks for the memories, Jonny. English supporters will never forget how you made them feel.

Doing one with Max Evans next week if anyone wants to submit a question to ask

So for those missing they're international rugby fix since the World Cup ended, it's coming up to that time again with the 6 Nations starting in a couple of weeks. What are everyone's opinions and predictions?

N.B. Not sure if the 6 nations needs it's own thread as the domestic league stuff will be going on at the same time as usual.

Keith Earls out of he Wales game. His new born daughter is seriously ill. Hope she makes a full recovery, puts the game in perspective.

France are favourites, personally I really don't want to see them win.

I was impressed with Italy earlier, they've really come on in the last few years.

Looking forward to tomorrow's game.

I'm not sure I expect Wales to do that well, it just seems like when we're expected to win we fold, and when everyone writes us off we beat everyone

That semi final against France really knocked the wind out of our sails, we were on a huge wave of momentum which I really hope to see again but don't expect to.

And I'm in sodding work for it!!

...fuck it, Cymru Am Byth! A top 3 finish would satisfy me.

Ireland without BOD is a very average team. He contributes so much both in defense as well as going forwards, that the team often seem bereft and adrift without him. Wales did their best to throw this away, they should have won at a canter, some abysmal kicking. But Ireland saw that justice was done and the right team won, with a very silly late tackle.

Must say I agree. That was a very dangerous tackle, and I'd be amazed if Bradley Davies doesn't get cited for that. And I couldn't watch the kicking, what happened to Priestland there?! Way to make things ever so slightly harder for our Boys there.

Anyway, Scotland next week at home - hopefully a calmer last 20 minutes eh.

Straight red for me, idiotic from Davies who was playing well and our kicking was again atrocious I do think we should have won by a larger margin but as seems to be kicking and discipline almost cost us. Cracking game mind.

From the boys in red? Don't bank on it. Like Philips said post-match - they like to give the fans controversy and drama. Let's be honest, it wouldn't be a Wales game without it.

Overall, a highly entertaining rollercoaster of a game. Just good to see Wales on the winning side for once in a game like that.

Wales could be leading by 14 points and I still wouldn't feel safe until the clock turns red.

I do like however how we’ve continued from the WC to play until the very end and beyond instead of stopping with 15 minutes to go.

Yeah. As my post from yesterday shows I was worried that our WC loss would knock us back, but it's nice to see it continue. I'm looking forward to them playing France now

Absolutely. And especially playing the Irish! We were 2 scores up with a couple of mins left in the WC and I still wouldn't except it until the final whistle. Been burnt too many times in the past.

LOL - I wait until the whistle is blown to finally celebrate. It's (normally) ok with the Tigers - but England and Wales nope; no chance of calm until the ball goes dead. I'm surprised that I've got fingernails left.

Will Scotland score a try in this tournament? Would the bookies even take such a bet, given it's as certain to happen as my bowels are to pay for every heinously tasty kebab I consume?

Oh for a Fly-half, or a coach that'd pick one.

Don't quite understand the timing myself - not like he really shone in that game.
