    That yellow card for Sharples was ludicrous, especially coming just after the Fofana incident. Rolland gets worse every year.
    If Rolland had been in charge for the first two games I'm sure he would have sin binned Hodgeson for his charge down tries - blatantly obvious he knocked those on deliberately.

    Im still not entirely sure why Rolland is allowed to referee french games?.

    After his performance for the Wales game at the World Cup and now his performance against England, it cant just be fans of those teams who are raising an eyebrow???

    Can the fact that he is half-french really be ignored???

    Have to say I agree. Doesn't seem right to me.

    Roll on Saturday - Me and the (Irish) wife off to Twickenham for England v Ireland AND it's St. Paddy's day! Grandparents have little man so we are going to 'have a few'.

    Should be a good game - Strettle back for England and looking forward to seeing Morgan in action.

    Will be on a flight all of Saturday, I can't believe I planned my travel so badly. I'm guessing rugby highlights in the US are not of the utmost importance either.

    I hope the other two games are better than that.

    Also, probably time to retire that referee. Too much wittering on. Just lay out your expectations of the players and then consistently punish them until they behave, they're like overgrown children!

    At least there weren't 20 minutes of scrumtime under his governance, this week I suppose.

    I do fancy France to win this, would be typical of them given the circumstances.

    Wales played really well today and made sure their destiny was in their own hands. Well deserved! Also happy Italy won as my cousin plays for them - but honestly that was a pretty poor game.

    Painful to watch.

    That was tough to watch. Well done to England, they are playing much better (and much more attractive) rugby this year. Looks good for next year.
    Congrats to Wales too, easily the best of the bunch despite not clicking fully at times.
    Alas for Ireland, it could be the end of a great era.

    It's rare that you see national teams take a physical beating like the Irish did today, brutal stuff.

    Didn't watch much of the England Ireland game but from what I did see it looks like the golden age of the Irish is over. They'll need to transition just like England are now and Wales 6months earlier.

    England are looking good as much as it hrts to say. But all that matters now is that Wales are the Grand Slam winners and I can't wait for the summer!

    I was there. In the stadium. Wales v france. what a fucking amazing match and atmosphere. Fucking ace (apart from the 2 kicks that bounced off the posts). very generous of France to gift us a new team too.

    revenge is sweet.

    Got to feel for both Ireland and Wales today. Both losing to kicks in pretty much the last plays. Two exciting games though!

    Bitterly bitterly frustrating to see Wales lose it in injury time - devastating stuff.

    Equally for the Irish too.

    The Southern Hemisphere sides always find that extra something don't they :(

    Oh well - some clear signs the gap may be closing. Next weekends tests are all for pride now :(

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.

    Bokke lyk goed so ver vandag!

    Definite improvement for the Sprinkboks this week. Which was expected but still good to see them look really hungry. Another try now, looking ominous for England now...

    Well last week was at sea level. This week they are up on the veldt, the English would always struggle there so I expected a great game, but this is just incredible.

    The Boks are completely overpowering the saes.... Again.

    They are going to have to dig deep here.

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.
