Sorry, no time to do justice to a superb opening round of the 2013 Six Nations so here's a tardy, brief and inadequate reaction to the weekend's events:
WALES - predictable, predictable, predictable.
IRELAND - in BOD Ireland still trusts.
ENGLAND - fast & loose, too loose at times.
SCOTLAND - ordinary (Messrs Beattie and Hogg excepted).
ITALY - Luciano Orquera wins MoM? Twilight Zone.
FRANCE - predictably unpredictable or unpredictably predictable?
