Yes, putting those two words in the title does feel like sacrilege, but I just don’t care. I’m a heathen, right?
But the reporting that the match is getting in the English papers is ridiculous. Fair play to the team in white, but they played like the slow lumbering pack that they are. Catt had how many crappy passes and made how many errors in judgement. Yes, he did then scythe straight through the French, but I put it to you that this was ineptitude from Les Bleus rather than genius from the English. Although, credit to the younger players on the English team; the likes of Rees, Flood and Geraghty. But you’d have to blame the French team for the defeat.
Just like you’d have to blame the Irish team for that display against the Scots.
Although, maybe, just maybe, the crap teams aren’t as crap as have been made out? I mean the results have been all over the shop this Six Nations competitions, haven’t they? Ireland are beaten by France but hammer England. England then win against France. And Italy have won two games. Wales look like they’ll be the ones getting the Wooden Spoon. Who’d’ve thought it’d be all up in the air going in to the final weekend.
And in case you were wondering, Araki Fabulous Willy won Crufts.
