Italy are still naÔve in open play, game, but lacking, Wales playing well apart from the George North experiment at centre, he's no 13 is he?

Frankly it`s not a meaningful contest and second half will be even worse as the Italians tire.

Pretty boring so far, if Parkes would pass to George we may even see if he can do anything at Centre

Even the Welsh fans looked bored, not a very exciting game, but job done I guess.

Embarrassing from North there, he didn't seem to know what to do there?

Thankfully the Scotland Ireland game should be a genuine competition. This game was awful.

Hogg trying to claim a try he knew he had dropped, embarrassing from the captain there.

God knows, I'm no Scotland fan but surely playing the ball in a ruck while on your knees is a penalty?

Both refs showing "homer" tendencies today!
Scots blew many chances though & ref helped the Irish with their defence!

I thought both matches had reasonable refereeing for a change, there's bound to be some things missed. Scotland at home will be a handful next week, they weren't great today, but I can hear the hard luck stories already, Ireland stuttered a fair bit, their game against Wales will be interesting.

Well on the evidence of the first two games there ain`t going to ba grand slam from the four teams on show , hopefully tomorrow will evidence some real skill and grunt.

The first match was so one sided, time for relegation and a 2 game playoff against Georgia ?

Canít understand why Cooney is not starting for Ireland, Hogg dropping the ball on the line very costly!

Scotland blew it by not looking after the ball. Ireland were tenacious for sure but even though Scotland couldn't create very well, they still had opportunities ...
Conceeding that many penalties kept Ireland in it...but for all the huff and puff, quite a limited game from both.

Being generous, you could say both teams were rusty ...not in effort, just execution.

Best bit of the 1st Match was the Cusworth-esq between the legs pass by Biggarsmiling smiley

I do say Rich, both refs were constantly being verballed by the players, especially Ireland and they both stood up to it, the touch judges weren't particularly helpful, but at least the TMO's kept their noses out, for me they were better than average. I would still like the relevant RFU's to be more professional in their handling and training of refs, but on the whole none of the 4 teams have much to whinge about ref wise, even the Scots who are becoming perennial whingers haven't blamed the ref.
