Well, what can I say? It's been an 'interesting' campaign.
Farcical France, Woeful Wales, Silly Scotland, Indomitable Irish, Effervescent England and Inhibited Italians.

The Romans are at home to England today. On current form it should be a walkover, but England thought that in the snow 2 years ago and got away with it by the skin of their teeth. The other nations involved will be willing on the Azzuri and it may be tight in the first half, with a lot of spoiling/counter attacking, but I fully expect the (deservedly so too) Triple Crowners to power away in the last 20.

For match 2, we have Wales at home (thankfully), their away record being worse than that of Hitler's invasions.
Gatland has rung the changes after a dire display at Twickers and some today will look to put down a marker for RWC 2015 selection. We finally get Dan Biggar in at 10, woefully overlooked for a starting berth thus far in this campaign, his introduction comes not a minute too soon. Scotland must be badly bruised from kicking themselves all week, that 'Hollywood' pass for the intereception try will haunt them for months.
They'll be feisty that's for sure but I fancy my countrymen to put on a real display this afternoon in the lair of the Dragon.

Finally to Paris for the most oft asked question in rugby:
Which French team will turn up? They mugged the Scots last week and will want to please the home fans again with the champagne-style rugby they showed against England. Question is, can they do it against a strong Irish team who will be going all out to ensure BOD gets a send-off like no other. Despite French form, it's a tough one to call.....

So, predictions:

Italy 10 England 35
Wales 30 Scotland 18
France 20 Ireland 28

The Scots getting the better of the early exchanges and have a pen to take the lead.
And it's........converted.
Early lead and atmosphere a bit flat if I'm honest.
Question Author
It ought to be DTC, it's a dead rubber, let's put on a show!
Looks like the Scots have learnt something from England about dragon slaying - the speed onto the Welsh line.
Question Author
Phillips achilles heel is exposed again at the ruck (taking a step before he passes) and he's clattered. That's where Webb has the edge over Spike: quicker ball.
A collapsed scrum sees the pen declined by Wales, we go for catch and drive.....
Question Author
Wales marauding forward, you just know it's coming....
North may be 6-2 but that pass was a tad high!
Question Author
Wales have a pen but play is stopped as the Scots captain, the hapless Brown is struggling.
Question Author
IN the absence of Halfpenny, the more than capable Biggar slots the uprights, 3-3.
Kelly Brown looks to have taken a knee to the noggin, could be concussed.
Question Author
The Welsh team have heard my edict, the forwards emulating the Globetrotters with their passing....
Question Author
Phillips having a bit of a mare, scrappy passage of play sees a Scottish pen, bit more difficult.
So it proves at it flys wide right....
Question Author
The Scottish ball carriers are being enveloped at every stage, but it's open and expansive.
Roberts punches a big hole in the 22 and suddenly we're on their 5....
Question Author
At last, some quick ball and Liam Williams dives in at the corner! Conversion will be tough from there though....
Question Author
What a beauty! Straight through the middle, Biggar is on form.
Question Author
Greta counter-kick by Hogg, he finds touch on the Welsh 5 metre line.
There would be something slightly sad about Ireland winning the title over England despite losing to them. And for that matter how bizarre it would be if France end up beating Ireland and having beaten both of their two main rivals to the title but still not winning the trophy either!

Bizarre how league-table competitions can work sometimes.
lovely kick!

(a beautiful baby, but show us the rugby!)
Question Author
Wales remain composed though and look to be settling as they clear their lines.
Question Author
Hogg sees yellow for a very cheap shot on Biggar, that is a red card and he will be cited for that.
The Ref changes it to red! What a berk, Hogg.
Quite right - red card
