    Not been great fan of JP. However, I was given a freebie to the Cardiff Blues V Pau game last night and I thought he did very well. One collapsed maul where he pinged from not rolling away. But hey no one is perfect.

    Dreadful game! Scrums a mare. Lydiate still "chopping" with no arms. France terrible with Wales not a lot better. Surely nothing for England to fear from either side on that showing.
