    Okay, why the hell is Sexton starting instead of O'Gara despite having played ridiculously badly in Wales and losing us the match?

    Really looking forward to an afternoon of Six Nations Rugby in front of the tele, you can't beat it. I just hope that Wales are still in contention, however unlikely for the Six Nations Championship come their game. We just need Ireland to absolutely hammer England and us to do something similar against France. Not asking for much!

    Looking forward to a whole day of rugby

    I want wins for Italy, England and France (because I dislike wales more )

    Whether that will all come true is highly doubtful.

    Hey Wales fans, are you ready to see England win the grand slam?
    Yup. It's not really in doubt, it was more or less settled when they beat France to be honest.

    I'm happy for Wales to get a top 3 finish, hopefully 2nd unless something goes wrong. It seems like lately Wales either finish spectacularly like they did in '05 and '08, or finish 5th

    Slightly gutted for Italy that they've finished last again after their thrilling win against France last week, but I'm happy that Scotland finally got a win as well, so I'm feeling good right now

    Been ready for it for a while. Doesn't look too promising for the English quarter of an hour in though

    Like 30 points, even atm, from what i can see. Not happening sadly

    But this is scintillating from Ireland. Fabulous Rugby. If they played like this every match it would be their Grand Slam. But they haven't strangely. Hilarious watching England imploding like this though. Pure gold!

    If I've worked it out right, if England were to lose by one point against Ireland, that would give them a points difference of +66 with 4 wins.

    If Wales beat France they'd be on 4 wins as well, but they would need to win by a margin of 42 points to give them a points difference of +67.

    For Wales to have a realistic chance of winning the 6 Nations, Ireland need to win big against England (and we of course would need to beat France).
