What a comeback!

Six Nations 2008 started with a bang: last Saturday an impressive Wales defeated England in their Twickenham temple as it had not happened in 20 years. With only 25 minutes left and 13 points behind, the Dragons never gave up and scored 20 unanswered points that left England absolutely stunned with the final 19-26 score. Maybe the time has come for another golden age for the Welsh?

Italy lost to Ireland 16-11, showing no ideas from the backs but quite a good work from the forwards; the World Cup ghosts still linger around, will they lead Italy to the wooden spoon? Come on Azzurri, let's give it a cut! Ireland was not the squad we saw in the last tournament but we hope things will improve in the next weeks.

Yesterday France run over Scotland in Murrayfield; Paterson, introduced only 20 minutes before the end of the match, gave Scotland some fresh energy but that was not enough: a heavy 6-27 was the final result, reflecting the values shown on the field.
