Six Nations climax

Wow. Now that was a tournament. Beautifully symmetrical, and only decided at the very last moment. England, Ireland and France had all lost once, and were all capable of ending up with the same number of points, so that points scored would decide it one way or the other. England knowing they were nearly fifty points behind, but that if they could beat Italy by fifty points…Dangerous stuff, but they were so close, until an interception try sets them back 7 points, and that settles it. But it’s not the end of the world. It’s been great to follow, and for once we don’t have to be embarrassed by watching the England rugby team make crass mistakes. The difference that clear, rational management can make is wondrous to behold. roll on the World Cup. We may not win it, but it should be well worth watching.
