    I don't think France look any different to other years tbh. Don't understand the hype. Still a glass cannon.

    Better backs but worse tight 5 forwards. Ireland will beat them and I wouldn't be overly surprised to see Scotland beat them in Murrayfield.
    Wales game will be very interesting

    Only two games in with a new coach. Will take a while to see their true form.

    Fantastic try to finish the game for Italy. Hayward has had a good game actually. Weird to kick it out then??

    I don't blame Edwards yet. He's had hardly any time with them, and they are French. Commitment and training is optional

    Enjoyable game for the neutral, Italy much better than last week.
    France still a tad away but not far from becoming a very good team. Big test next match

    A deserved last try for Italians... French have only 60 minutes in legs... They will have to improve their physical resistance... But I am happy, Bonus point (deserved) and an improving italian side too (pleasant). I didn't expect france to win this 6N, it's a new coaching team, it's a transition team, very young team, and still, they have outrageously dominated English during 50 minutes, and by moments they were suffocating italians in the first half... This french side is still very erratic, but at least, they don't loose moral anymore and don't give up like last year; that are positive points. let this young guys become more and more experienced, and you'll see that they won't be that far from the top 5 in the world.

    Yeh I do think Edwards name will mask it somewhat.
    In time it could change, but france are still frenching in terms of shutting off randomly.
