Sum up of Super Saturday

Well done France you fought till the end again!!!

Ireland I bet you wish you kicked the ball dead instead of going for that extra score.

Wales better team on the day you had it all to play for. I was at millennium stadium and the Welsh crowd made a lot of noise for their team, I should imagine for a new English cap it was extremely intimidating.

For England 3rd is progress and unfortunately before kick off the squad knew win, lose or draw we were only ever going to be 3rd. Good experience for them and they will learn from this as they did from the Irish game. Brian Ashton does seem to learn from his mistakes unlike Andy Robinson.

Italy held Ireland well in the first half put unfortunately once a couple scores went in there was nothing left to play for with their best position in the 6 nations already secured.

Scotland wooden spoon.

I have learnt a lot about the use strategy and the advantages and disadvantages each team encounters before a game. The 6 nations is an interesting competition the luck of the draw of home and away game and the order of the games being key to each teams chances. Imagine what might of happen if the games had been played in a different order???
