6 Nations Rugby 0

England v Scotland

A week ago I watched the most remarkable game of rugby, the final 6 Nations game between England and Scotland. I often go to 3 or 4 6 Nations matches but this was my only one for 2019. Courtesy of my brothers, it was a birthday trip en famille, we had lunch in Richmond before heading to the stadium to […]

Have faith in Eddie

I read a comment on a Wasps Facebook page and thought the views contained were worth sharing further so asked Dan Willis to write a Guest Blog.  You can find Dan on Twitter @danwillis1986 (the photos are 6 Nations) So, a fourth test loss in a row for England fans, and on Facebook the ‘Eddie Out’ brigade are unsurprisingly out […]

A Problem Like Eddie’s

Guest Blogger Jez Denton with a few thoughts  Regardless of whether England ruin Ireland’s Grand Slam ambitions on the weekend or not, it is fair to say that this Six Nations campaign has been a disappointing one for Eddie Jones, England Rugby, its players and supporters. Much of this is down to two factors; one that England are victims of […]

Italy v England – Vene Vidi Vici

A week in Rome with no laptop means I ‘m writing this after round 2 of the 2018 6 Nations tournament.  As usual I have photos to share and a few thoughts on the game. (lots more photos to follow when WordPress starts working properly again) This was my second visit to Rome to watch the match, this time it […]

England v Australia

Just under 82,000 people made their way to Twickenham to watch England take on Australia, a team they’d bettered in their last 4 meetings, 3 of which were Down Under in 2016.  There was a time when it was a momentous thing to see England beat a Southern Hemisphere team.  But, there’s now an expectation, in the Autumn in particular, […]

England v Argentina

Much has been written and many moans have been had about this first Autumn International match for England.  They faced Argentina, a team no longer considered an Autumn whipping boy. Eddie Jones had said that he wouldn’t use the players who featured in the Lions tour and he kept his word as far as 2 of them were concerned  Owen […]

England v Scotland

Having watched one of the best games of the tournament in Cardiff, Twickenham was calling.  My friend Monica and I had stayed in Bristol, prices in Cardiff are just crazy on match weekend, so we had an easy journey up to London.  we parked a good walk away, but there was no need to pay a huge fee for parking, […]

England v Italy

I’m having to watch this one again to get my thoughts on it in order – my initial headline would be – Italy play within the laws but not the spirit of the game to outsmart England for 40 minutes! Unlike many I wasn’t expecting Italy to lie down for England, they’ll have been smarting after a battering at the […]

England v Australia

The final Autumn International and final game of 2016 for England saw old foes Australia coming to Twickenham.  England had won all 3 of their matches against South Africa, Fiji and Argentina taking them to a run of 13 matches unbeaten, their 4th win of the year against the Wallabies, should it happen would see this England team equal the […]
