We get to look forward to the best of all the teams combining to take on a worthy oppo in the Irish. Can Fozzie pull it together?

Fair weather Jaffas. I actually would have liked the Bloos to win. They were quality this season.

Ireland are going to be interesting. Fozzie seems a bit...underwhelming. Like a dull dude you get stuck with at the pub wot has nothing interesting to say.

Paddling for the paddies this morning...............will continue for the month

We are too old, wrecked, crocked or not good enough to be competitive here, furlong was papering over a lot of cracks and with him struggling the cupboard is very bare

Plus we have no looseheads after this morning

Yes. It's hard to see other than a comprehensive humping of Ireland in three tests. Pity about losing Henderson, their toughest lock, and the prop situation is worrying. I hope they will be able to give a decent account of themselves. I think they really have to revise their game plan significantly and stop kicking the ball away to the opposition. Just give a thrash at running it, if that doesn't work, then so be it. I'd like to see the forwards playing with some more street smarts too - like every other top team, they have to be on the edge of legality. Start taking out opposition players well behind the ruck, slow up the opposition ball up by flopping on the rucks, obstruct at every opportunity, etc... Just cynically see what the ref will let them get away with, and milk him, just as the ABs or any other smart team will certainly do.
