France are playing phenomenal. Wales are going to have an extremely hard time with this. If we perform as good as Wales can, I think we edge it. However, Wales performing these days seems to only come at 5-10 minute periods and not the full 80 minutes and that is not enough. Another victory like against Scotland is not going to happen. France 25, Wales 13.

Ireland will also have a tough time with England. England are looking very tight this year, whilst Ireland didn't look spectacular against France. I think they'll pick their game up and have a very very close game.

Scotland were one of the best Scotlands I've seen in a while against Italy. That said, so were Italy against England. A home advantage seals the deal for Scotland 16, Italy 9.

You said it KryOnicle, if the same Welsh side from the 2nd half had played the whole match would have been a grand slam killer. It was a bummer, was pulling for ya. Did you hear Gatland after it was all over? "We have been the architects of our own demise."

The most frustrating match I've ever watched man Half time I was crushed. We literally GAVE 2 tries away. If Wales can ever play a first half like we do a second, we'll start pushing up the rankings again.

Second half was some great Rugby to watch, if Byrnes hadn't of missed touch TWICE I think we would of had another 5-7 points on the board and maybe edged the win.

Why can't we start playing Rugby like that to start with. Fix up a few key errors, and get going early we'd of taken that match easily.

Ah well! Was a great game, and France played well the first half and capatalised on our mistakes. We nearly had another epic come back, but France are not Scotland.

Warren Gatland said it best though.

Can't wait for the games later, Ireland V England is one of my favourite matches of the year. Hoping for a crushing Irish win

Scotland vs Italy is pretty intriguing me as well, both sides have really stepped up their quality of play and I think we'll see a fast paced game today.

Both tests were exciting to watch this morning (well for me). England v Ireland was a very close game, and know their fans are crying foul about the refs and blaming Wilko, but when they are down to the wire like that at the end I just want to see more like it. Next week Magners and the following is Ireland v Wales.

Ireland England was tense! That first try by Ireland was beautiful though Very very close game.

Only recently getting into club Rugby (normally I just watch International Tests) so am really looking forward to catching some Magners games as well Ospreys (my citys team) against Edinburgh should be great fun!

Wales vs Ireland will be incredible. Can really go either way. Would be nice to watch 2 halfs of Welsh rugby though

You can see a lot more of that try scorer Tommy Bowe if you are lucky enough to have that as your local team. Did you see the muay thai knee to the back of the head O'Driscoll took? Hoping that doesn't effect him for that match in a fortnight (like they say).

Sounds good to me man. Yeah that Knee was harsh! Apparently he's fine, was just a bit wobbled by it. He was concious and standing after the match someone fed through the info to the commentators.

Haha nice, I'm from Killay man.


EDIT-

I just found Sky Sports 4 doing a 2 hour show on the Super 14! Watched the last hour of it, really really enjoyed. The Chiefs were phenomenal. Can't wait to watch more of it. The games air live really early over here so I'll have to record them.

Super 14 is on right now! I'm watching Fox 1 HD if you happen to see and want a link send me a msg, they have the Chiefs v Reds at the moment and in a couple hours it's Brumbies v Lions. Between those matches and the Magners league later in the day, it's a great Friday for rugby!
