The skill sets have to complimentary. The Pooper is just two on-baller's, they compliment each other. The mode of play needs to suit them as well. The Welsh, Scots and English didn't do anything different to what we have seen from them for years. The French and Italians likewise except theirs is a race to the bottom with the French in particular in danger of not truly being regarded as a tier 1 side anymore.
The Irish are the only side that I think even attempted to play something different to their failed RWC style. That was good enough to win 6N but rarely against the SH sides.
While the Wales V Ireland game was a cliff hanger and very hard fought the Welsh play was as predictable as ever, they should have moved Gatland on.
Wrong thread, this is for those who actually support the 6N.Not sure this is the right place to post this, but the thing that wound me up about the 6 nations was the board behind people being interviewed. Alongside the sponsors were the words- “6 Nations- rugby’s greatest championship”. I felt this was a dig at the rugby championship.
In the long established tradition of childish tit for tat, I would like to see something like this on the board behind interviewees during the rugby championship- “Rugby Championship- rugby’s greatest 4 nations”.
Any suggestions on how we might be able to put this suggestion to someone who might be able to act on it?
