Both England and Reading won today, England beat Italy 20-7, though it was far from an impressive display. The Autumn form is unfortunately back. It’s a shame as the Scotland game last week, which I was at, was excellent.
Reading also got a 2-0 result over Villa at home. Currently 6th and are on a role. Steve Coppell is doing a great job and Majedski’s pre season comment about a place in Europe might not be fair off!
Now off for some celebration drinking!

Who’ll win? Afraid I don’t think it’ll be England, I think they’ll qualify and would love to see them through, but not sure. Though having said that all the “big teams” have various injury and weak spots so, could be a very good open tournament.
A 3-1 win over Stoke today pushes Reading to 102pts in the Championship with 2 games and them needing 4 points to get to the magical all time points record of 106 which would beat Sunderlands 105.
Coppel’s target is not to loose until the end of the season, so hopefully another 2 wins or at least a win and a draw and it’ll be home and dry.
Almost put a bet on a while back but glad I didn’t as I don’t think I’d take the pressure at the moment!
Don’t need to say much but, well well deserved, overdue and
COME ON THE ROYALS!!!!
Just you wait, the next Wigan in the making.
The mighty Royals continue to reign over the championship and interestingly have “accumulated the most points, won the most games and tasted defeat the fewest times of any of the teams in the top four divisions so far this season.” (From BBC News)
I think that the 106 point record achievable and would make this by far the Royals best season, and, they deserve it.
Come on you Royals!!!

Don’t usually write about sport, but in this case I feel the need. There is a good chance we might actually beat the Aussie’s at cricket!! Could we actually have a decent team at last…

Well, not sure what to say to this, yes we lost (19-13) and I suppose the better team won. We didn’t play well at all, though I hope they get an ear bashing and beat the Welsh or we’ll never live it down… Come on boys!!!
The RBS 6 Nations is well underway now, of course world champions England are doing well.
Bit of a shaky start in the Scotland game but successfully beat them 35-13 at Murreyfield to retain the Calcutter Cup. Last weekend they also beat France 50-9 at the Stade De France. Come on England!
The new captain for the England Rugby Union team has been picked for the first Six Nations match. Dallaglio has been chosen to success Martin Johnson, a excellent choice, good luck Lawrence.
