Watching the old game after the Six Nations match today I'm amazed how quickly the scrum was formed and moving. Generally speaking the scrum was started within 3 seconds of the whistle. Compare with the several minutes of the current scrum.

It is interesting how priorities change.

Bloody hell that was a good weekend of rugby. Roy, if you haven't seen the Scotland - Italy game yet you should find it on the BBC iplayer, nervewracking last 5 minutes.

England, despite losing a potential try by inches at the start, still beat the Irish. No team's getting a slam this year and they all look pretty evenly matched. England, Ireland or Wales could win the championship and I think England-Wales in a fortnight will be the match that decides the winner.

Thanks, but I don't really 'get' rugby, and the last thing I need at the weekend is my nerves further wracked.

I hear it was very good though. I hope it's not a one-off fluke, and that we might be on the way back as a team.

Major League Baseball season opener to be in Australia.

They're retrofitting the Sydney Cricket Grounds to be a baseball ballpark. There will be a double-header between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the L.A. Dodgers.

Watching this season opener, and I gotta say Aussies, that Sydney Cricket Grounds is one nice-looking stadium.

Mets swept the D-backs, now have a winning record for the first time this season. BASK IN OUR ATHLETIC PROWESS!
