Scotland should do well this year, Wales, with the injuries they have and the fact their coaching team is stale could really struggle, Ireland will be Ireland, no clue about France and Italy will be crap.
Seems it didn’t even take “world class” opposition. Hail hail the six nations champions!

To to keep it BA related I’ve attached an empty champagne class from the slightly delayed flight to HKG tonight. While the glass is as empty as England’s aspirations, I do intend to drink quite a bit more LPGS to celebrate!

Probably.
He is a she , but yes I was. Seems my comment was lost in translation.

Hats off to Ireland, deserved Champions.

Unless you support the French, hopefully you didn’t get to see the match! :/

I was meant to - I even have a ticket that will now go to waste! But unfortunately other priorities take over, and I’ll be watching elsewhere!

Have a great time

Well now the slightly frazzled head is settling down somewhat I must thank BA for getting us in from Hong Kong early yesterday. An excellent day was had.

Not true, but England were beaten in every facet of the game, so the ref was largely irrelevant to the result of the game.

Yes it did, Ireland were magnificent. One of the most complete performances I've seen at Twickenham. England's aspirations are empty? News to me.
