I concur, Colwyn.

Thoroughly deserverd Irish Grand Slam.

I wonder if Italy have done enough to justify their ongoing 6 Nations status.

Probably.

There will have to be some new English faces next season.

Little did I think 6 weeks ago that we would win the grand slam having got out of jail in Paris. After that game we really turned on the style and we deserved to be winners. We had to do it the hard way in having to win in Paris and Twickenham. No disrespect to Wales or Scotland but we have better results away to them than we have against the other two.

The future of Irish rugby looks good because we have a good crop of young players. It is difficult for us to continuously produce as rugby is at best our 4th sport. Although dying out rugby still carries a degree of snobbery. Most interest is in Gaelic games and soccer.

Many pints will be downed tonight. What could be better than winning the grand slam at Twickenham on St. Patrick's Day.

We didn't really deserve that one. But French indiscipline and an awful game from Trink-Duc let us get away with it.

What a difference a year makes.

March 2017 England scored a record 61 points against the Scots.

Ah well - here's to 2019.............

Enjoy St.Patrick's Day OPD.

Enjoying a Wadsworth 6X as we speak. A gentle "session" beer to start the evening!

Article written by Jeremy Guscott today stating that Ireland does not have one world class player. What does that say about the rest of the six nations?

Last weekend there were rugby world cup qualifiers. Belgium were playing Spain. The Spaniards were hot favourites to win. The match officials that were appointed were Romanians. If Spain lost then Romania would have got the automatic spot. Yes, Belgium did win. The Spaniards were not happy and nearly strung up the officials. By all accounts in the press the officials did make a number of strange decisions. Rugby Europe has now got to report to World Rugby on what grounds the match officials were appointed.

I think I read, that they have to have a rematch.
