There is something about Alex Goode's body language that seems to make it incredibly obvious that this is the option he'll be taking too.

Indeed.

To try and speculate an answer, I believe the 6-3 moment was after Ford had just missed a relatively easy one - not that that should have stopped him from trying again.

At 19-3 I reckon England had given up all ideas about trying to win the game and set about damage limitation. Relying on Wales or Scotland(!) beating Ireland and trying to narrow the final points difference shakedown. A very negative and depressing tactic if that is the case, but seems more plausible than any other reason I can think of...

Yes!!! Remember hearing that years ago, yet now it seems even more appropriate, doesn't it. Made the mistake just now of listening in the office - pissing myself laughing!!

Ah yes, so it was! And I'd forgotten about that particular bit of previous from Healey - makes it all the sweeter. I really dislike the bloke, he's a bloody thug. Much as though I wouldn't usually take pleasure in someone's pain, I quite enjoyed that one.

Wales keep title hopes alive with win over France in Paris

Gatland: "I think the advantage was that our French-based players were able to give an insight into a number of the French players, having been team-mates or played against certain players".

I think for the Welsh players based over here in France it was probably as much them wanting to prove their worth and value and the reason why they are over here. In terms of that self-motivation, it was wanting to perform."


Two very valid points.

Call me a bitter and parochial little bastard, but I'd edit your last sentence to: well played Ireland, but I hope Wales or Scotland somehow manage to derail your Grand Slam.

I think the moment that dazed O'Brien was when he went in ridiculously upright to tackle Dan Cole and got his noggin in the side of his head.

Maybe you're right on that tackle - Joseph's left arm was sort of near the bloke's neck and from Joubert's view he may have looked like he had more influence in the tackle, whereas in actual fact it was Nowell at knee-height that actually made the tackle.

Fair enough then. I hadn't seen your comment until after I'd posted my second.
