Rory Best charge down

Fantasy League here if anyone's interested.

Zebo, Sexton, Healy and 1/2d (all the scorers so far) in my team.

Wales playing well before the half but 20 points down may be to steep a hill

Well that's now 31 years since Scotland beat England at Twickers.

Usually opening games are a bit uninspiring but today there were two good games.

I was pleased to see that Scotland played much better (in some phases) than they have for years. It's no fun beating a really poor Scottish team.

The Calcutta Cup stays at home.

Looked to me like they realized about 70 minutes in that they were playing in a rugby game. Come on boys, commit to some rucks.

Well, I guess a win is a win but that performance from England was pretty dire. Why, when an England player gets the ball, do they feel the need to pass almost immediately ? They need to offload ONLY if the time is right - they passed way too many times to someone who was totally static. My God, the southern hemisphere guys would have ripped England to shreds yesterday...
