Good weekend/ Bad weekend - 6N 2012 - Round 4


The Welsh

Four down, one to go.

Stuart Lancaster

Job prospects enhanced enormously. (A note of caution however – the last English coach to win in Paris? Brian Ashtion in 2008 – sacked before the end of the season).

Tom Croft

With thanks to the kidnappers who finally released him after nearly 3 years of captivity.

Alex Cuthbert, Rory Best, Andrew Trimble, Richie Gray and Manu Tuilagi

Try-scoring contributors to a fantastic performance by my team in this week’s TF Premier League.


The Welsh

Getting progressively worse as the tournament goes on. Think England in 2011?

Andy Robinson

Now on the brink of a Six Nations whitewash.

Alain Rolland

His bias kept France in the game before his incompetence denied them what would have been an undeserved victory.

Kris Burton

Comfortably the worst international rugby player I’ve ever seen.

TF Team of Round 4:

1. C.Healy 2. D.Hartley 3. D.Cole 4. D.Ryan 5. R.Gray 6. T.Croft 7. J.Tipuric 8. B.Morgan 9. E.Reddan 10. J.Sexton 11. A.Trimble 12. J.Roberts 13. M.Tuilagi 14. A.Cuthbert 15. R.Kearney

I think your selections are blundering at best. I mean , difficult to pick Reddan over Dickson on the one try business. If the England set pieces had been on, Dickson would still be passing just as crisply now. Looking awfully good IMHO.

Just trying to be even-handed :)

That's true; you are. I look forward to reading your all tournament side.
All this talk about Wales, there must certainly be loads of players?
I'm really not buying into Gatland as Lions coach(?) and , it's difficult to tell with the French; they could win. But hardly by 39 points. I think you can be even handed in the final selection of including many England players without raising any eyebrows. Afterall...
