The Six Nations - Day 2

The game between Scotland and Wales was by far the most entertaining game of the weekend for me. Scotland in losing looked better than England did in winning yesterday - but they were totally dominated by Wales.

There were some excellent patterns of play, at times the Welsh seemed to go through the Scots like a knife through butter. England will have their work cut out for them in the next week if Saturday is to be anything other than embarrassing.

Obviously, I want England to beat Wales - but I'm glad I've got that compensation bet on; on the basis of the first round it does seem that my money is in the right place!

Team P W D L F A PTS
1 England 1 1 0 0 36 11 2
2 Wales 1 1 0 0 26 13 2
3 Ireland 1 1 0 0 30 21 2
4 France 1 0 0 1 21 30 0
5 Scotland 1 0 0 1 13 26 0
6 Italy 1 0 0 1 11 36 0

Next Saturday at 3pm, it will be France vs. Scotland. On the basis of this week's games, I think this'll be close - but I think it'll go to France. At 5pm it'll be Wales vs. England. I'll be supporting England, but I think Wales will dominate. On Sunday, at 2:30pm, Italy will play Ireland. I think Ireland will take the honours there.

Let's make some more predictions, which are quite pessimistic for someone who supports England:

Do you agree?
