Why is this post still open?! Wales beat France in Paris in a manner England would have been very happy with. Eng v Ire thread is on another page where they're all arguing about qualifying foreign players!! No-one's deluded, especially not the players. It's not as wide open as has been suggested but the reality is that it looks like Wales will be the team to stop England getting the GS.
If we're going to talk about deluded fans, i think the fact that you Welsh fans still think Adam Jones will get the Lions shirt over Dan Cole speaks for itself. In my point of view watching him get done over by a French loosehead that no-one has ever heard of was quite amusing.
How many grand slams have England secured in the last ten years?and the way this 6n is heading it will be show time in Cardiff,there is no doubt how far England have progressed under Lancaster,but Wales will need no more incentive than to stop England winning a grand slam.....make that 11 years!
I think the boyo's are getting a bit over exited, well said 586, my point exactly. Winning is all that matters, however it's achieved, you did, we did, lets praise each other, Rugby is what matters. If you want to know were the description of England destroying Ireland and Wales not being very good came from, replay the game and listen to Johnathan Davies, he said it. He must have been licking 585
I havent spoken to a single English rugby fan who thinks that Wales will be a walkover. Nor have I spoken to a single English fan who didnt think their game against Ireland was every bit as boring as wales' against France. So I am taking 582 with a pinch of salt. When in a rut winning is what matters. We did. End of. England will be a massive test for us but write us off at your peril.
582 Pete, seriously you are deluded and not to bright. Thought I saw you drive past the other day licking the window?
@582 yeah England destroyed that Ireland side by a massive 6 points. This is the same Ireland side that conceded 3 tries to 'not very good' Wales side, yet England with all their dominance couldn't cross the white wash once...
@582Yes, England "destroyed" Ireland by all of 6 points and continually threatened the Irish try line.... yawn....
Wonderful a win against the worst French team that ever took to a rugby field and experts from the valleys are out in force. Mediocre England side? did they not destroy the team that rammed 30 odd points on Wales in the first half in Cardiff. We don't underestimate Wales, the fact is your not very good.
All in all a great game to win. Lets see if we can build in the next two games which are still going to be hard tests, particularly in Edinburgh. However, in my opinion Scotland have been slightly overly praised for their game against Italy on the weekend. Less than 40% of possession and 2 tries against the run of play is not necessarily great.
