I was decrying the players mouthing off at refs on another thread and calling for medieval action to be taken.

I think I might make an exception for this fella though.

He's loud. He's very loud. And he's very, very poor.

For the record, I have been extremely unhappy with the sudden inclusion of a Montpellier contingent. A sh*t side who play no rugby and with a sh*tehouse discipline record.

Galthie's hard on for his own club has left me bemused.

France 22 is an awful defender. Jumped out the line twice in the build up there

Lovely try from Scotland.

France even with 14 need to keep ball. Look dangerous when they string phases.

It was a nasty cheapshot into the back of the French player and escalated the entire thing. The red was well deserved but Ritchie should have been YCed as well.

Anyway - Ireland back on for the championship.

C'mon Scotland.

On the plus side. For all you Neutrals. Looks like England for the title when they finally play the Italy game. :thumbup:

Ritchie ran in from distance to get invovled plus he threw a punch from the ground.

I've said this from the start. I don't think this French team are actually very good.

They have a small handful of superstars and a great defensive coach, but there's a lot of mediocrity in there. How many of those players are really up there with the best in their positions? Maybe 4-5?

If that England game was replayed this weekend, they'd have been absolutely dry humped.

In which case France 11 needs to be yellowed as well

It was the sort of push you see in just about every such situation. Not condoning it but its never a yellow when you push a guy who is already pushing.

A very limp wristed two punches that didn't really connect, but punches nonetheless

Yeah. Given that the tactic all 6N so far has been to hoof the ball away incessantly, not convinced that's going to change.

France lucky it’s now half time, they were imploding here. Good chance to regroup and get their shit together

I was at a house party last night and I confess I needed a quiet sit down in a corner in the kitchen myself at about half one in the morning, just to let the last beer pool around my kneecaps before hitting the Jameson. Definite second wind sitting, that.

It would need to be some team talk from Galtihe and Edwards to turn this one around.
Scotland look confident and actually possess a cutting edge in attack for once. It would take a monumental f**k up to lose it from here.

You'd hope this would force France to try and play rugby to at least try and make an effort at threatening Sco's 22.
