The southern hemisphere teams say they are not worried by the performance so far of the home teams in the six nations, well so what? Australia and South Africa often blow their own horns when it comes to internationals but we shall see in the world cup. I'm sure our home sides will put up a fair defence of themselves and they might even shut the loud mouths of our southern hemisphere friends too. Never write off any of our home teams, it may just come back and bite you

Average start to the opening weekend of the six nations,although France did stand out from the rest,as usual.Lets hope it gets better by next weekend...The three southern hemisphere giants wont be quaking in their boots,trust me...more like frowning as to say: 'Is that it?'....I'm pretty sure Mark Meadows didn't convey actually challenging NZ themselves,just challenging over all...besides,they are grouped with the mighty Boks...watch out Wales....they'll need more than just luck....

The young Scottish lock Richie Gray was immense. Would have been my first pick at 4 or 5 from the weekend.

Mark Meadows, you should be more concerned about Wales challenging Italy, never mind New Zealand. Ha Ha!

A very good squad, with few faults, although I think Foden the other Scottish 2nd row and Hartley will feel unluck not be included. I'm not denying that Hook didn't have a good game, but I think at full-bcak Foden had a better game, Hook was much better when moved to 10. The other Scottish 2nd row (I can't remember his name) was worth a mention. He cause France lots of problems and carried well. Finally I think Hartley deserved a shout for beating down the critisism he recieved prior to the game.

Hook looked lost at 10. Dithered, took the wrong options and looked like a rabbit in headlights. He was no better. How you think Hook deserved a spot in this XV is beyond me and an insult to the proper fullbacks this weekend.

Toby Flood was good, but surely Trinh-Duc should have got the nod, he was fantastic.

mark wales have a lot of work to do to challenge italy never mind newzealand and as for hook thought he had very average game

Richard Davies says...

There is no way Hook deserves to be in there, Foden and MacClean clearly had better games. Also no place in there for Medard, even though he was Man of the Match in the best game of the weekend? Bradley Davies is unlucky not to be in ahead of Kellock.

Mark Meadows says...

Good shout on Hook. Looked far more dangerous than Stephen Jones when moved to fly-half. Wales have a lot of work to do though to challenge in New Zealand.
