An uninitiated view says we rather lost it than Ireland won. They were strong and got the try and our plan seemed to be stay withing touch so that one try and conversion could win it....but we kept giving things away, were poor in the line outs and hardly ever got within scoring distance. In short, did we deserve to win? For me, sadly not. Great to be Six Nations champs, but that's our worst game this series. I'll stand correction.

I think unfortunately, that does us way more credit than we deserved today TD. We certainly didn't "lose it" - we were bettered in pretty much every department on the day. Every single stat in their favour, including me not recalling us spending more than 2/3 minutes in their 22 all game. Much deserved win, for the better team on the day, by an (Irish) country mile.

Aye, a bit of a tired looking performance against a side at home and well up for it. Mind you, the media seem to be forgetting we just won the six nations and have done pretty good all in all. Always somebody ready with the blame stick. I really enjoyed the series.

Anybody watching? Not six nations, but v Argentina. Lively, physical stuff and we're behind to the Tango dancers at half time, who are playing pretty well, incidentallyl. :(

Unless we do something pretty good soon we're in danger of getting a real leathering.

Oh wow, what a finish. Cracking game of rugby and credit to Argentina who played really well. We won, but only just, 38 34. George Ford was superb.

Good player is solomona. It's an absolute joke that he's allowed to play though and makes a mockery of the system. He's not handled the last 12 months well at all, whether that's through bad advice or his own ideas.

Yup. Start of 2nd half, needed to convert pressure. You know the better team is going to be strong last 20, so you need parity + luck or lead + hope.

England's 3rd fifteen away can beat a strong Argentinian side under Eddie Jones. The four home nation's supposed best team get dicked by the All Blacks under Warren Gatland and his biased picks. Not to mention the lacklustre warm-up games performances and then shooting his mouth off about the All Blacks only yesterday. The difference between Jones and Gatland is stark - Jones is a winner; Gatland has never done anything noteworthy before and yet was still appointed Lions manager.
Expect further drubbings.

Didn't get to see it but it sounded a scrappy affair. At least their coach agreed we deserved the win. Was that a fair assumption?
