A Bad Day for the Celts

What drearry matches were served up yesterday. The failure of the Welsh back 3 to run in the expected load of tries has killed off my dream team hopes! I can't believe that a team with Williams and Byrne were afraid to counterattack Italy and kicked the ball away (badly) at almost every opportunity.

Don't feel that way oggy. The result is not the be all and end all.

I remember getting cussed at Argyle years ago because I applauded a superb goal by the other side, it deserved praise no matter who scored it.

If Wales had won, you would not have noticed those bad kicks that you remember now. It always seems to be that if you lose, it was a shit match but the identicle match where you win is called a great match.

Alls not finished yet or any of 'our' teams.

Err, Wales did win! :roll: I'm not a Welsh supporter anyway, I was dripping about the quality of rugby played in both matches. Tentative at best I think, the Welsh should have cut their back 3 loose early on, yes Italy are a hard team to play against, but with weapons like Byrne and Williams available, shackling them is a crime.

Is it just me or has the game reverted over the past few years to the perpetual kicking game that blighted the 70's.

Yes, all because of the ELV's mate. Thank our Aussie friends for that! Are you reading this Jimmy? :wink:

Finally, an England performance where it clicked. In my opinion, they showed glimmers of their potential in the previous 2 games, but today they delivered!

We also had no yellow cards!

On the flip side, what an appalling performance by France - apart from about 10 minutes in the second half.

Ha, I think Flood's attempt at a try may have had a similar influence!
Yes he should have been in. Took a Wasp to finish it! :D
Let's hope, and I know I'll regret saying it, that this is the start of a new age for England. Still not happy with the second row (or Borthwick as captain), and the back row needs tweaking, Easter drifts in and out of games and is not dynamic enough, I'd go for Rees, Haskell and Croft. Mind you, Vickery's interview before the game was quite convincing I thought. He really did sound like he meant it.

Errm....The Irish are Celts also! :oops:
I was waiting for that. As neither the Irish nor the Scots are true Celts it matters not.

P.S. And neither are the Cornish.
I made a point in the 'A good day for the Celts' thread that we were once all Celts but no longer. A programme I saw on TV since then went on to suggest, through DNA testing, that the Celts never actually came to these islands at all.
