Didn't I hear that the whole All Black team had been hit by a stomach bug - maybe could have had something to do with the result perhaps?

No ****!  I bet they do!  I a bet a pound to a penny that England would like to play them at Twickenham.  Maybe a neutral venue is selected then dontknow

The Rugby Football Union has rejected Wales' call for the World Cup 2015 match with England to be played at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

Hosts England are keen to utilise home advantage and play at Twickenham.

lol

With this new manager I see better things, he has only been with them a fortnight, Rome was not built in a day. I feel positive with the new guy Scott something, just have to hang in there Aileen!

I thought Scott Johnson had been head coach, or at least interim head coach, ever since Robinson resigned in late November?  It doesn't matter anyway, two months still isn't nearly a long enough time to lick players into shape - and I should know that by now!  I guess it was just my initial reaction because I felt so disappointed, but I'm hoping that Johnson will be to Scotland what Lendl is to Andy.  I never had much faith in Robinson but Johnson does inspire confidence.  I just hope the SRU give him the time to get on with it, although I don't think prospective coaches are queuing up to take Robinson's place!

Just watched the match.  I believe I had the BBC coverage on ESPN.  One of my favourite Scottish players was in the commentary box - Chris Paterson goodjob

1st half was very tight.

Hogg deserved his try in the second half and was unlucky not to get man of the man.

I have to say that I am pleased with the result though.  Owen Farrell would be my first choice over Flood any day. Very Happy

Tough game in Dublin next week for England.
