Ireland v Wales game was unbelievable! Irish defence absolutely immense, their first half fantastic.  Wales, with all that pressure, should have done better.

Calcutta Cup game was a funny one for me to watch.  Yes, Scotland got thrashed and were never in the game, but the tries from Maitland and Hogg were excellent - yes I'm biased but Hogg at 15 for the Lions for me.  Beattie had a good game, as did Visser, and although not his usual excellent self, Richie Gray was omni-present as always.  England however, I thought were exceptional.  They completely dominated, and even though there were a few errors, they controlled the match from start to finish.  So many good performances - Robshaw, Morgan with ball in hand, Brown's strong running.  Special mention though to 12trees - fantastic debut I thought.  God forbid, England might finally have found a centre who actually knows how to pass a ball.  Twin with Tuilagi when he's fit again and that's potentially something very dangerous...  And finally, Farrell... I thought he had an absolute blinder.  Threatening, probing, fantastic kicking, and THAT pass for the Parling try - jaw dropping.  Looking forward to seeing what the French can come up with tomorrow.

Roll on next week!
