Ireland have a great chance and what really worries me is that there has been too much talk about Ireland not able to beat France at home for the last 15+ years. It has the makings for a France fail, however I'm going with the odds.

Are there no Irish folks or fans out there??????

Wasn't able to see this one, but from the match reports and the highlights I've seen it seems both teams should have been awarded a loss. Ireland gave up a good lead and France couldn't get a drop or penalty to go in the final 15.

Well Le Crunch is up for this weekend and I'm not sure whom I would give the nod. Last I saw it appeared Eng had some injuries and retirements, but I'll have to see what the effect will be.

However, I'm thinking Scotland may squeak out a close win against Ireland.

They're due when they put out a good team AND play well. Until then, they're not due anything.

I have a feeling this could be a shake up weekend. Here's the predictions.

Wales by 25

Scotland by 2

France by 12 or -3

I love Brian Moore. I read his biography a while ago - excellent book. The man says it as he sees it and he's normally spot on.

Oh keeerist it has to be said - that was a devastating loss for France. France fielded a team with most of its members who will be too old for the next RWC. England are in full rebuilding and uncertainty and they pulled it off. I had an inkling that it was coming, but I thought it was too unlikely, but it happened. Congrats to eng fans.

However, on a brighter not I am predicting that Scotland will not take the Wooden Spoon.

England Ireland looks to be another good game this weekend.
