Seriously France? You don't have undersoil heating in the Stade de France?! Stade de Fail more like.
I'm sure all those Irish supporters are completely understanding...

There's plenty of time left.
For more yellow cards for Scotland.
France/Ireland was a fiasco. Never seen anything cancelled so late.

So it's back again and here's the big one. It's Ireland v Italy!
No no can't pull it off. England v Wales at Twickers.
Two young teams, one less experienced than the other but playing at home.
Media and pundits predicting a Welsh win but with Steve Walsh in the middle who knows what's going to happen.
I'm hoping and praying the Dragon roars. How I'd love to gloat over a 30pnt margin but my head says i'm 60% confident of a 10 point win but 40% scared that England are going to stuff the ball up their jumper and Steve Walsh is going to sinbin Wales at the breakdown.
Cracking game this. Wales could have been out of sight in the first 15, but great response.
, great to see the positivity
What's with the red and white thing on all the pundits lapels?
Good heart from England here.
Def bin, haven't made the most of out though, poor.
Priestland doesn't look right these days at all.
That has got to be my single favourite moment of the Six Nations so far!
Jebus, that was close. Wouldn't like to have to call that one.
Fantastic game. Really enjoyed that.
Haha, excellent, that's what I call a smash 'n grab
fwiw I thought that England try was good, but, saying that, England would still have had to make a conversion from the touchline so it certainly wasn't nailed on for a draw.

Inconclusive was the right decision. We lost it when Wales were down to 14 men and didn't convert. Great game though.
Fantastic match! You wouldn't know it from the final score, but I was pleased with how much Rugby went on. Brilliant strip, break, chip and try for Scott Williams, too, a multi-skilled score.
Not sure why Youngs is still in the England side, to be honest, he has seemed flustered and inaccurate all tournament, and just keeps making the wrong decisions. Not sure there's really anyone to put there instead in the temporary absence of Farrell, I guess.
Can't take away from a great game, though.

Shame Youngs has lost his form, needs to get back to basics. England were in control until that change.

lol, I was in Sainsbury's when Wales scored the try. Some security guy was watching it on a monitor and a staff member was by him trying (badly) to talk to a customer. I saw the chip and shouted "GO ON!", which made the customer jump out of their skin... followed by much leaping around when Williams went over for the try.
My missus was pissing herself laughing at me / us. lol
Was amazed that England were on the verge of scoring by the time I got back to the car though. I thought it would have been over with such a short amount of time left.

Great last 20 minutes but there was no way you can score a try with definitive control on your back with your hands above your head. Arms don't bend that way!
What the hell has happened to Ben Youngs? He had so much promise a year ago, now he looks far too ponderous and that pass.... With a stronger bench England could have have held on to the lead. I'm hoping Lancaster keeps the job, he's done well considering he's had to keep with Johnsons elite squad and only been allowed to tinker.
Onwards and upwards! Good effort nonetheless.
Talk about nerve-wracking. I don't think I've got any fingernails left! Overjoyed that Wales nailed it, but by God did they put the supporters through the wringer.
How long for that final try / no try decision to come through? Seemed to be about half an hour!
Wales are going to need to step up a gear if they're going to beat France though. They play like they did yesterday, and Les Bleu will eat them alive.
Still - it's in Cardiff, which will help.
We need to come out of the gate biting today!
Lets ave it!
Nobody watching this? 10-10 at half time! Better score than expected but sloppy slow passing game from Scotland so far.
Enjoyed the match, another belter for the most part, once everyone had warmed up.
I love it when there is hardly any kicking game - it sort of undid Scotland in a way because they (I type this every year!) seem to let the schoolboy errors creep in, which you simply can't do against France, even a French team as undecided as this one seems to be.
France aren't undecided once they've got the ball though, it's made me properly excited to see them play Ireland next week in the rescheduled game.
Cracking game! Could have gone either way.
Much like Lamont's leg! Ouch!
