England Still On Track For The Grand Slam


Some interesting results over the weekend and some interesting tactics employed as well. All perfectly legal and within the Laws but we don’t really want to see rugby reduced to a non-contact sport.

“Standing Off” worked for 40 minutes but let’s hope that’s the last we see of that nonsense. We can imagine that if a team does adopt that move the call will go up, “Romans!” and a group of three will pick up the ball and then, as if protected by their shields over they backs, simple charge forward as a heavy, running maul.

Scotland at Twickenham now stand in the way of England with the prospect of a decider with Ireland in the last match. There is, as they always say, all to play for!
