Wales v Ireland

Wales thoroughly merited the Grand Slam and they deserve great credit. Despite having some key players missing, they got on with the job of working to a plan that maximised their strengths. The commitment, fitness and skill levels they showed throughout the tournament (apart for the first half in Paris!) were fantastic.

This stands them in good stead for the RWC.

Ireland, on the other hand, have been disappointing for almost the whole tournament and I think they peaked too soon. If the RWC had been last year, they would have been strong contenders but might struggle in Japan.

They just smashed the world number 2 side off the park but Ireland lost it.

Brilliant, just brilliant.

I'm a dedicated and proud England fan and really admire Wales in this year's 6N - fully deserved and shows what is possible. Lots of nonsense on here about the other teams losing it - maganimous doesn't appear in some peoples' lexicon. I really wouldn't feel confident seeing Eng v Wal in the knock-out stages of the WC, so we'll see you in the final (when Cips comes on and kicks the injury time drop goal) :-)

That's a quite rare generous and thus very welcome post.
As regards the last bit: it would indeed be wonderful, if in my view sadly unlikely, to see DC - hopefully still a proud Glaws player - doing just that, provided it doesn't affect the final score-line...
(And by the way, you can still back Wales to win in Japan at about 9/1, if you're quick - I checked the odds this morning as I collected my 6 Nations winnings. :D )
Time to take down all the flags now & concentrate on Glaws.....

There is probably a case to make for France throwing a game away - but apart from that they were worthy champions. I have to say, if it were Glos - I wouldn't care how they won, as long as they did.

Having slept off the chip on my shoulder I think someone on twitter has summed it up best

"How good were Wales? Good enough and that's all that matters!"

I think AWJ should be knighted for his leadership skills alone, leave aside what an astonishing player he is!

And he is just one of the outstanding performers in that Wales side.

If you think that Direland side would have given the AB a kicking yesterday, then.... wow, just wow....

Plus, I'm with Plod on the other thread - those performances will not win (or close to winning) a WC. Sorry for having an opinion but I happen to see it this way..... Let's see shall we.....
