The Game for Those with Odd-Shaped Balls (the Rugby thread)
Another round of the Six Nations takes place at the weekend. Wales have made ten changes to their starting XV and some claim this is a slight on Italy: let's see what the result is. Meanwhile Mike Brown has been dropped from England's starting XV and Dylan Hartley is out injured. I can't help thinking this could be a "tactical injury" as most clubs in the Premiership have a better England-qualified hooker, and that includes his own club. France v England won't be pretty but England ought to run the fat boys off the park if Ford and Farrell kick well.
