The 6 Nations catches fire

Have to say the game this afternoon between Ireland and Wales was an absolute classic. It was a joy to watch two brilliant teams go all out for the win

For the record I thought Wales deserved it but the brilliance of the win was tainted somewhat by a really nasty spear-tackle in the second half. I imagine the citing committee will be involved because there was real intent in that and could have done some serious damage.

This was balanced, almost, by a ridiculous decision not to give Wales a try in the first half despite the ball clearly going down and there being no demonstrable evidence that it had been held up.

Anyway classic encounters always have their talking points...both teams deserve immense credit for really getting 6 Nations going for us...a joy to watch
