Grand weekend for a slam... by Phil Vickery

Grand weekend for a slam… by Phil Vickery

After the fireworks of last weekend we were treated this week to more – shall we say – ‘traditional’ Six Nations rugby. The rain in Dublin, which was truly awful, and pitch conditions in France would not have helped but Scotland aside we did not see an awful lot of running rugby.

SIX NATIONS HOTS UP

Well for some of the teams it did, apart from poor old Ireland and France! I must say I felt very angry on behalf of those fans, especially the Irish who had made the journey over and were told it was cancelled just ten minutes before kick off!  Seems daft to me that they didn’t realize...

Quite amazing opening weekend wasn’t it? As an England fan, I was delighted to see a young inexperienced side display mental toughness and discipline to get an all-important first win.  A lot of people have said to me that Scotland lost it rather than England won, but if you look at the way England played...

Well this weekend has seen more drama than an episode of Eastenders, with the magnificent Wales being knocked out by a stuttering French team! The controversial red card for Sam Warburton has been debated long and hard, there’s is no doubt it played a part, but Wales were so good they very nearly won with only 14...
