I think it is more a case of how badly England played. They just could not do the basics for some reason. I do not think France played particularly well. Having said that, the kicker with the Georgian name is much better than Michelak(spelling ?)
France nearly let England back in at one point; but at least the 'fickle' Paris crowd did not boo their own, like in the Ireland game. Maybe France should play the internationals in somewhere like Toulouse ?
Not a great year for the six nations this one, though Italy seem to be getting better now. At least there is some element of unpredictability returning to the games, which adds interest.
You are wasting your time posting about sport on here.
Why don't you come over to snowheads(www.snowheads.com
). There are 13000 posts on Rugby Union alone in the 'apres' forum. Plenty of English and Celts have had there say - but no proper Frenchmen (as opposed to ex-pat Brits) or Italians so far. You would probably get a lot of sympathy from the Celts too.
