Got any to add?
Six Nations…Ireland v France and Scotland v Ireland nail bitters, and the England v France intensity. Dusatoir’s tackle rate, Parisse’s work rate, Ashton’s try scoring ability and Wilkinson becoming the leading International points scorer. Quick ball, huge hits, try saving tackles, off-loads and inside passes
Locks…Palmer arguably England’s best player, O’Connell saving the day for Ireland against Scotland, Davies incredible work rate and Richie Gray being Scotland’s leading player
NBC…Televised the first ever live rugby event on US network television
Treviso…For beating Magners League leaders Munster 19-18
Dave Alred…Integral to England’s near 100% kicking success rate in the Six Nations
Super Rugby…It’s back!
England Unbeaten…In the Women’s, Men’s and under 20’s Six Nations Championships. A hat- trick of Grand Slams?
25th February…The Melbourne Rebels first points, first try and first win!
Sky…For televising the Women’s England v France match
Six Nations…Scotland’s try draught at Murrayfield, Wales’ ill-discipline and Italy’s costly place kicking. Handling errors, reset scrums and poor restarts. Relinquished leads, static attacks, booing and high tackles.
Brawls…From an under 20’s game to a Midlands match…it’s an ugly sight rugby could do without.
Cipriani… Less of the ‘Bad Boy’ headlines and more of the ‘Hero’ headlines please!
Condolences also to those affected by the Christchurch earthquake, and best wishes to Leeds’ James Tincknell
