    Highlight of the Rugby Union weekend; Biggar admitting he didn't get the ball down for a try, saving time with the third match official.
    Wales and Ireland looked in better nick than last week both sides bringing some Test intensity to the game and England with Farrell at 10 looked a little lacking in direction and intent, but produced a good scoreline if not performance. In parts Italy looked very strong but no game breakers in evidence.
    Not sure if anyone picked up injuries, but Rhys Patchell may be a Welsh worry.
    Roll on the 20th September.
    Cheers

    I'm not sure how much we learnt about the teams playing this weekend or even this month. The world rankings are a joke. No one understands them and basing rankings on warm up games is silly. Ireland are no.2 - how did that happen? England look great when given space, but all teams do. But I am glad we are playing proper 7's now.

    Once the RWC kicks off it will a completely different intensity. The fear of a mistake can cripple teams and some teams just seem to excel in knock out situations. I hope England bring their game smarts and don't get the 'game plan A' paralyse that they tend to do. It will be interesting to see how far Wales get with their defence based system. How many line breaks have they made this Autumn?

    I just want a northern hemisphere team to win it.

    Seems to be a lot of pre- RWC jitters amongst a few of our teams. I sincerely hope this gets eliminated before the group stage matches commence.
    2019 & it will be time for a change.
