  • Quite chuffed with the new sports package. Because the decoder doesn’t have a PVR function I can record things to an external HDD and then have full portability :cool:

    One thing i dislike about the PVR is that I don’t know how to tranfer stuff off it to a DVD. :oops:

  • Super vision by Trinh-Duc. The obvious choice wud have been to pass the ball.

    One can never underestimate the value of having perfectly weighted cute kicks as a weapon in the modern day game

  • Interesting game, been impressed with parts of the Italian display but they just run out of steam too much. They have a very competitive pack, strong set piece, and an inept backline. Just hope Brunel can add an incisive dimension to their backline play and they would be really competitive at international level. Have been impressed with Andrea Masi and the bulk of Italian forwards. I think their Scrumhalf Gori has some potential (but still a bit too inexperienced too have a telling influence).

    France are looking the main contenders for the Six Nations crown. Malzieu and Fofana give them an extra dimension.

  • Denton definitely the best player on the pitch, he has size and speed and was all over the place. Disappointing that a team in SA never picked him up, he could be particularly useful for the Kings having gone to Kingswood.

    As for the match, it was abysmal from both teams. The skill levels were abject and Parks has surely extinguished any hopes of ever playing for Scotland again. I feel a bit for Scotland as they really should have dispatched that England side. It was really a case of Scotland failing to put England away that England coming out of it with much credibiility.
