The feeding at the scrum by Conor Murray is beyond a joke.

Irish try not grounded! (his arm underneath the ball - or is that a try?)

Late tackle on May break, if not late then it was a shoulder charge

That said, we won well!!

Still a big win and decent tv coverage unlike the Wales v France game which was poor both in terms of camerawork/direction and commentary/punditry.JD has become increasingly excitable and biased whilst Eddie B is just dull.

Quite agree with your description of EB - never been a fan of his commentary

I may have missed it, (I often do !) but did any commentators  in any of the blurbs before any of the games make any mention of the disgusting treatment to the Championship and all the other leagues?

I didn't hear any mention of it, but David Flagman did on the C5 Prem' highlights programme last Monday.

No idea - I haven't time to watch all the build-up - just the game itself.

But as they were they had 2 games from the previous day to review and the big match to preview, I would suspect not

Its a well paid little earner and the pundits all toe the party line with bags of bonhomie and loads of reminiscing. O'Connell is pretty perceptive but few of the others played in the "modern" game.

No-one at the very top is interested in The Championship BUT I have to say that certain of the Championship clubs have done themselves no favours in terms of recruitment/expenditure.
