I must say, give credit where its due. England played an awesome and disciplined game. They did not go slack after a fairly good lead at half time, they kept going to get a humongous cricket score. Ashton, whether liked or not did very well and ensured that spirits stay high throughout the game with his six tries.
France vs Ireland, if that is the discipline and game skill that France is going to display throughout the remainder of the series, well, they won't get far. Ireland was not playing that good, yet they almost managed a draw with France, shame on them!
The rest, as Davey mentioned, will depend on the "best" of the total bad skill display we saw thus far. May the best "worst" team get into third... :)
My predictions, I'm still keeping it as is for the 3rd round. I'm sure we will see who's who then.
