15 minutes in and this is comfortably the most exciting game of the tournament so far.
Yeah its been underwhelming thus far.
Scotland could be so good if they improved their hands - so many dropped in the last 2 weeks. Bennett's been anonymous as well
Apart from perhaps the scrum our forwards have been terrible so far.

Hopefully LCD has sorted out his throwing. Keen to see Manu back as well
Well that was a rather unfortunate last ten minutes.
Still, we did hang on and go to France with a possible slam for the taking.
Itoje does look one for the ages.
Wow, dat Ireland result! Proper thrashing.
Kudos to the Scots, well deserved.
Yer Eyeties are completely phoning this in. One thing they've always had is bottle, but this is just horrible to see.
Leekists should be made to swallow hemlock if they don't post sixty.
Knife through butter. Not a hand laid on Kings Lynn's finest.
