Is this the uproar about him calling Wales a s*** country or whatever it was? That's the sort of thing that pisses me off, everyone up in arms about it. It's a bit of a laugh ffs! It's like on the radio when someone accidentally say's 's***' and everyone is like OMG we must apologise immediately for any offence caused. I was in NZ about 18 months ago and on the the radio they can say piss, s***, **** etc at any time and nobody cares. In defence of Eddie (and I'm not English so couldn't care less what they do) humour in Australia is far more relaxed that it is here where people just cannot wait to be offended by everything! Heaven forbid what some people with think of things they overhead in a pub or on a building site!!!
Yeah. He called Wales a "s***ty little country" and referred to the Irish as "scummy". Apparently this all happened months ago but it's only being brought up now... just before England vs. Ireland at Twickenham <scratch>
So some sad t*** has dug something up from months ago?

That's what I gathered from it.

Damn that was close.

Feel gutted for Italy. Thought they played a great game and were on for the win.

Anywho; 3 wins this year which has shown an improvement for Scotland and if we'd eradicated stupid errors it could have been a title challenge!

Cracking result for Wales. France threw that game away.

I can't believe France were the same team each half. First half they looked slick, great hands and good decisions. 2nd half they were awful, slopping and full of mistakes.

Pleasantly Suprised by England. Discipline was very good and executed on chances well. Kicking game was really excellent and line speed in defence caused havoc for the irish

Brilliant result for England against a very tough Ireland side. This 6 Nations just got interesting.

What a difference having both Vunipolas and Tuilagi makes.

We physically dominated them and the dummy runs and passing amongst the backs was great to watch with minimal errors.
Hopefully Itoje isn't serious.

Still think we have big improvements discipline wise (conceded twice as many penalties as Ireland, plus the sin bin) if we are to compete in November, but promising start to the tournament.

Big game for Scotland and Ireland this afternoon.

For Scotland to show continued progress over the last few years, they need a top performance and keep the game close till the end.

Ireland need to show a winning response to last weekend's defeat.

This to me is the game of the weekend and this is no slight to England vs France tomorrow but France are a fading force and England should win.

Wasn't able to watch the first half, but Scotland were poor in the second.

Missed the game as I was in Toon, but hats off to Wales. It's never easy in Cardiff. Just got to hope Ireland can do us a favour.
