England are going backwards, no power in the forwards, Decent Scrum half missing , so many defensive mistakes, can you imagine the All Black's against that rabble today !!.Scotland thoroughly deserved their win today , the backs were so much faster stronger and more adapt when they gad the ball.Kriskin I agree that Ireland won't be worried about England but I think Scotland could give them a game.

fair play to england for their ambition. you can't change thngs in one game.
if that is the way England want to play then i am all for it. just don't
give up on the project yet.
If you want to get into a football game & play open, fast and loose then Scotland
are probably not the best opossition to try it against. They love that game.

I have been arguing for years that the finn russell is a
maverick, mercurial player is a tired trope and he is
actually a very consistent fly half that can control a
game but is also expansive and inventive.
after yesterdays peak finn sh1te followed but peak finn
genius i may have to give up on that.

England - 19.5 on here @ 1.97 currently looks about right to me and I'll have an interest in that although it's not in anyway a strong fancy.

For the more cautious amongst us then England winning margin of 13+ is trading around the 1.46 mark.
Report northanlite February 12, 2023 3:04 PM GMT
England need a statement win here, i think 19'5 is too much. If they can win by 12 then all good.
I think if England win by over 19 then that is a huge performance given recent Italian reasults

Sir Clive Woodward was sounding his displeasure this week saying that Twickenham has become the world's biggest pub with people far more interested in getting the beers in than actually watching the game.

I'd have to say he has a point as, although it was 5 years ago, my last visit to Twickers was not exactly a pleasurable experience and getting home by train afterwards was an absolute nightmare.

31-14 so the original handicap scuppered but I managed it to be in front albeit not by much in the end. The commentator said "that's progress for England." He's obviously a glass half full man because I thought that was a pretty mediocre performance and that's me being polite.

I just had a quick look for seats for the France game and if, like me, you're not a member of England RFU, you are looking at £800 plus for two seats together with an unrestricted view.

I should cocoa, I pay less than that for a season ticket at Palace!

There is now enough evidence linking contact with the head to long-term brain injury, so I completely accept that something had to give, but FFS, if that is a red card, the game really is done.  There is no longer any point to it, and how can you possibly have a punt on the sport when a ridiculous decision like that can totally screw you over...?
