    It would be Georgia, Argentina aren't a NE nation and they are part of the Rugby Championship anyway.

    I don't follow rugby but I really enjoyed the 2015 WC and will also follow the 2019 WC.

    Only a casual rugby fan.
    What I don't understand is that England have to go away to 2 of the best teams in the competition and have the easier ones at home. Whereas the reverse is true for Wales.
    Will the home and away fixtures reverse next year? How is the schedule decided?

    According to former Wallaby, Jeremy Paul England will be the moral winners of the 6 nations if Wales beat Ireland to secure the 6 nations title. His rationale was because England were so impressive in beating Ireland in Dublin, a result which even more impressive because according to Jeremy Paul, Ireland are the only team to beat New Zealand in the last few years.

    South Africa's win in Wellington last year doesn't count, ditto Australia's win against New Zealand in Brisbane in late 2017 and sorry Lions fans, the Lions' win in Wellington doesn't count either apparently.

    We have some real idiots in the Aussie media but on Wednesday night in his role as a panelist on a sports panel show, Jeremy Paul took stupidity to another level.

    Tadhg Beirne gets his shot. Carty still on the bench and Marmion likely to get a run too.

    Ringrose did alright v France didn’t he? A good team that.
    Still, have to fancy Wales especially as they’re at home - though Ireland seem to relish the role of spoilers. My head says Wales will win. My heart, probably won’t be able to take it ;)

    Ireland u20s get the grand slam. Another exciting game against Wales, scoring two tries in the last ten minutes to come from behind and win.

    I'll be disappointed if Angus Gardner doesn't use the word 'mate' at least 10 times in Cardiff today.

    I’d love us to beat England but with the way things have gone so far for us in this campaign, I’m going to give it a miss as not expecting anything other than England to absolutely decimate Scotland this evening.

    Hope I’m proved wrong but just cannot see it.

    Come on the Welsh.

    Just had my Irish mixed grill out of respect to our counter parts.

    Yellow card for France with Italy on the 5m line. Exciting stuff.

    Italy will be kicking themselves if they don't win this. Had the chances.

    Shame. Italy just lacked some composure when it mattered. Would have loved to see them get a win. Onto the big one now.

    Matt Williams on Irish tv giving that lad hell for not transferring the ball to the side away from the defender before grounding, instead leaving it near him and allowing him to dislodge it in the tackle. Tough but possibly fair.

    There's been talk of late about Italy's status in the six nations with relegation being touted to allow other nations the chance of competing.

    Yeah, great tackle all the same but the player should have made sure, and could have easily.

    Results don't seem to improve. Not sure it helps anyone them getting beat over and over, no matter how valiantly they play and get close.

    He had a man outside him too so he could have fixed the tackler and passed out to him.

    When I saw him going for it, had a sinking feeling. Feel like I owe him an apology.
