6 nations: a summary

So, now the 6 nations are over and England finished far higher than they really deserved to given their stupid errors, I thought it time to produce some proper analysis on it.

Ireland did well, hurrah. Well done, etc. England need to get down the gym and behave. Scotland have improved so much, it's great. I don't like Wales (long story involving ex boyfriends and mad ex housemates) and the other two are Johnny Foreigners.

However, friend and I did notice some huge changes in elements of the teams which we felt needed commenting on.

First up is that the England team used to be hot, and now they're not.
We did have a whole selection of yummies, including

And Josh Lewsey, Ben Cohen...ah, they were a good looking squad.

Now the best we're supposed to offer is that chap Kelly Brook is going out with and he's no match for the World Cup winning team.

However, help is at hand. The Scottish team are so yummy that it's worth moving up to Edinburgh just to hang around Murrayfield on the off chance.

Take a look at this young whippersnapper:

Wouldn't mind him tackling me, etc, get into a scrum and he could try it on with me any day. Okay, I'll grant you he went to an English school and used to play for England, but now he's firmly in the grasp of the SRU and I envy them. Hell, I even envy the guys that got to tackle him on Saturday.

Ireland have a fairly ripe young fly half too, which certainly makes their games worth watching.

France. Well, they have the calendar:

Italy...erm....I didn't really notice, to be honest.

And Wales. Well, Wales have this:

Nice body, but he does look more like someone who should play association football, really...

And I was told he shaves his legs and he looks orange. Orange isn't a good look for anyone.

So there we go. Ireland may have won the grand slam but in terms of who would win in the Trixy 6 nations, I'm going to be belting out 'Flower of Scotland' for the foreseeable future.

Sounds like you've got a a new twist on the old rugby song...

If I were the marrying kind, which thanks the lot I'm not, sir
The kind of guy guy I would wed would be a

Scrum half - they put it in, I put it in etc

Full back - the hang back, I hang back etc

The great simpleton - rugby girls are way ahead of you... that song's been sung on ladies rugby tours for many a year!

Trix - I have to take umbridge with your suggestions that either Cips or Henson is fit. They're not. *shudder*

Simon Shaw on the other hand... :)

Trixy said...

That's the point I'm making: they're not hot but they're bandied around as the hunks of the team.

Which is not good for the rest of them.

Is that song still being sung in the rugby clubs? It's as old as me that is.

The Great Simpleton said...


It must be 30 years, at least, since I last sang (sung?) it so I was surprised that anyone recognised it.

subrosa said...

Ah trixy then you knew quality when you saw it. No wonder you're all for the Scotland team. Oh those thighs...

North Northwester said...

OT but, I'm sure you'll all want to watch this


on some other chap's blog.

Go UKIP, go!!!

The one week that Labour gets one thing right for the first time in four years, and this has to happen.

Life's just so unfair isn't it?

Trixy said...

Those thighs indeed!

Thanks for the link, NN: Dan e-mailed me earlier to tell me his was on his website but I was being very good and went for a run before I posted it.
