Lovely start to the event.
Really looking forward to watching most of the games.

Think the English Ref should have had another look at that! Irish hand but where was the down pressure?

Ireland 27 3 Scotland

Tough day for Scotland they will probably have to ( and should) defeat Japan.

England next up and I can already hear Jerusalem being sung on a Sunday but not in Church!

As a Scot that was painful this morning, but have to admit, Ireland deserved it well done to them.

I would like to see Georgia given a crack at the Six Nations. Italy haven't really improved since they entered the competition.

On Thursday Ireland were 10/1 on to win that match!

If Scotland can beat Japan then they are right back in contention. Although not surprisingly the odds are even :'(
