    It's easy to judge from the high perch of these more enlightened times. You have to remember this was 1997. Brit pop was riding high in the charts, Tony Blair was an avuncular figure, not a toad like war criminal. Nowadays we'd spare All Black feelings with the proper level of obsequiousness and a pox on the benighted denizens of Manchester.

    Think this says it all about the England team. When they are good they are very good, but when they are bad they are awful. I think someone already mentioned that ‘on form’ England had better players, but they did not have the consistency of the Irish. At the weekend, England were on form, while the Irish were a little below. In any international sport, this difference will be noticed.

    I reckon it's Olyy's primary account, he just hasn't felt so passionate about anything other than this for 11 years.

    Afternoon all. I haven't frequented a rugby forum for ages. I went to revisit the old SCUMV site and it's gone! What happened to that then? It was always a bit Welsh-centric but there were some decent posters and a sensible level of banter. Anyway...

    Wow, a BP in Ireland, who'd have thunk it. I genuinely expected to get smashed and we'd be wishing Care was available to cause havoc in the last 20, but it wasn't needed. What a result.

    France looked tasty against the Welsh, that said, I reckon there's enough rugby talent in my office to shine against the Welsh first half performance. Form and odds say we'll win at home and hopefully quite well. But this is the 6N. Anything can happen.

    Swing low.

    The
    Healey v Peters/Tucker thing on twitter was fun.

    Healey being Healey, People might not like him but IMO in terms of pure rugby instincts he is the best pundit in the world (Too much lad stuff hampers it though)
    Tucker I get is respectable.
    But Peters doing his usual bellend, piping in when not needed, (Part of the problem with Rugby journalists who have achieved fek all in the game)

    On the Tuilagi thing, Penalty yes, YC Prob, Red Card no = No citing.....

    You’re kidding right? Penalty against Sexton in my opinion. I mean obviously not, because those are never given, but they should be. No way a yellow against Manu, even a pen. Are you valleycommando in disguise...?

    What was the thing on Twitter? I don’t tweet
