Bloody hell, those were two great matches. You’d have to feel a little sorry for Wales as they were the better team against Italy and deserved to win. But I wanted Italy to get their first away win. Didn’t happen, but the draw is better for them than for Wales.
But of course the Irish match was the one that I was most interested in. And we did deserve to win, and by a greater score than the final score if 15-9, but Scotland have a fantastic defence. And the rain and wind didn’t really help to create an error-free game. I think I’d have picked Stringer as man of the match, but Paul O’Connell was great.
And that was the final Six Nations match to be played in the current Lansdowne Rd. Next year we’ll be heading to Croke Park while the old stadium get redeveloped.

And I keep forgetting to post this image, which was the cartoon from BiffSniff last week. I think it is great:
