Well watching that was hard work, but a good result in the end. Italy up next in a fortnight and then possibly a Grand Slam decider in Paris on the 17th March.
Hopefully we'll come up against a weakened French team as they are playing on four successive weekends to make up for the match cancelled due to a frozen pitch.
I thought England continued to show signs of improvement. Despite being a Nothampton fan I have to be critical of Ben Foden who is becoming a bit predictable at full back. For this reason and to encourage strength in depth it would seem a good idea to give someone else a try out at 15.
On the war gaming front, the next 12 Romans are on the painting table and I'll work on these during the week. I'm also considering a small order to Foundry, despite the high prices, for a few extra blisters to round out these armies. For Spanish and other allies/opposition there are better and cheaper options though (A&A, Crusader, etc).
