fingers crossed the long break has made him reconsider and we get Alex Mitchell in the 23 from now on, his pace and vision is miles ahead of any other English 9 around right now (except for Robson who clearly shit on Jones' carpet or something).

Clean forgot about the return of international rugby in the Southern Hemisphere, with NZ v Aus in ‘The bloke who knew my grandfather Cup’

I  have the letter that Viscount Bledisloe wrote to my Nan after my grandfather died.

Anyhow, a tight game in crappy conditions. Ended 16-16

Crap tactics from both teams at the end. England or SA would have set up a relatively straightforward drop goal attempt in those positions.

Game now off.

Investigations showed that even more players had gone awol.

Very poor attitude from the Barbarians players

I like the Italy shirt, reverting to the darker blue of back in the day.  The Ireland shirt's a bit of a mess but at least we're winning comfortably enough.

It's all too easy for Ireland, if they don't run in 50 here they'll be disappointed.

Well, they've had the best part of 20 years to practice and, if anything, they're further behind now than they were.

I had no idea they were playing the last round of six nations games this Saturday until tonight. Think England have got a decent chance of winning the tournament

You’d think so, France & Ireland will both know exactly what they need to do so they should just cancel each other out, that said France being France may not bother turning up.

France are a tough one, they seemed to be largely over the fitness and discipline issues until the ridiculous red card against Scotland. I don't think that will be the norm for them though because the clubs sides have become a lot more disciplined in the last few years and I expect that to carry over. Ireland are a good side but a big win over Italy doesn't really mean much either way, in the spring they were a team doing ok but struggling to convert pressure to points and I can't see that having changed much, the big win over Italy is very flattering to them in the table.

England are probably slight favourites though, if we get the 5 point and 30-35 point winning margin result that you'd expect then it'll be tough for France to catch us at all and will put a lot of pressure on Ireland to get the 4 tries
