Sneak preview of this week's rugby piece: WITH ADDED ROYALTY ;) Expert Witness 2014 v2 Each Wednesday during the Six Nations, Planet Rugby's Expert Witness analyses the past weekends' action along with a former international player. Continuing last week’s theme of physical centres, this week we welcome former England skipper, Mike Tindall to share his views on the latest Six Nations action. With another riveting round of international rugby, we witnessed strong displays from both Ireland and England, whilst France finally overcame a resurgent Italy In Dublin, Ireland’s demolition of the Champions, Wales, was a significant victory from the home team and one Mike Tindall believes was built upon the foundation of powerful forward play and a masterclass of fly half skill from Lions’ ten, Johnny Sexton. “Sexton’s right boot was certainly the most influential and impressive of the weekend,” noted the former England skipper. “His ability to vary the plays and to dissect the Welsh defensive weakness ...
Ireland v Wales: Wales player ratings February 10, 2014 15. Leigh Halfpenny: 5 Showed willingness to counter attack early on, after putting a lot of boot to ball against Italy last week, and slotted his only attempt at goal. But Halfpenny was kept quiet by the Irish defence throughout and was rattled by his British and Irish Lions understudy Rob Kearney, who was superior under the high ball. 14. Alex Cuthbert: 5 The Welsh flyer stuck to his wing for most of the match and was consequently starved of ball, but when he did get his hands on it, he was not given an inch by the Irish. The winger was also nowhere to be found when Johnny Sexton peppered the corners with probing kicks. 13. Scott Williams: 4 Williams was forced off early on after he sacrificed his shoulder in the process of clattering Brian O’Driscoll. If Jonathan Davies does not return soon, Wales will once again be left desperately short in the midfield. 12. Jamie Roberts: 6.5 The Welshman trudged forward throughout and occasionally managed to ...
Ireland never looked out of control in Dublin as they beat defending Six Nations champions Wales 26-3. Johnny Sexton was on fine form, kicking two early penalties and converting Chris Henry's try, before Paddy Jackson came on and rubbed salt in the wound with a converted try of his own.
Full Time: Ireland 26 Wales 3 A late Paddy Jackson try rubs salt into the wounds of the Welsh. Great performances from Brian O Driscoll, captain Paul O Connell and Johnny Sexton. Arguably saying that the best performance of the day was Peter O Mahony who excelled in everything Ireland did and picked up the man of match. Wales never really threatened and leave the Aviva with nothing. Congratulations to Ireland who will now meet England in Twickenham in 2 weeks time.

PerfectMatch - Fall In Love Today
Johnny Sexton busy missing penalties 5mins from time that could've won the game for Ireland, then the Irish are heartbroken when the All Blacks take their chance and the Irish lose. Its the same way Asamoah Gyan missed a penalty that would've taken Africa into the World Cup semis, then you wanna blame Luis Suarez instead, a man who took initiative and exhausted all his options. When you have an opportunity to make history you make sure and deliver! There's no reward for 'almost' in life.
6 Nations man of the tournament... Man of the Lions series. Deadly with the boot anywhere in the opponents half. points record breaker. superb positional play... great in counter attack and supplying passes to team players (remember the Johnny Sexton try in the 3rd Lions test)... try scorer... works *** and off the pitch. He may not be part of the best team in the world - but as a player is respected on and off the pitch. He deserves this.. The others are all tremendous players and amazing role models, but have any made quite the impact he has in such a short time? I think not. Leigh Halfpenny for me.

Joe Schmidt has made 6 changes to the side that beat Samoa last week for Saturday's clash with Australia (Aviva Stadium, 5:45pm) Luke Marshall replaces Gordon D'Arcy at centre, with Johnny Sexton and Eoin Reddan replacing Paddy Jackson and Conor Murray in the half backs. Three changes to the pack sees Cian Healy replace Jack McGrath, Captain Paul O'Connell starts at lock in place of Mike McCarthy and Sean O'Brien returns to the back row in place of Chris Henry. What are your thoughts on the line up?
Things I dislike in World and Club rugby: Dylan Hartley, Julian Huxley, Danny Cipriani, the Rebel's front row, the Rebel's back line, Richie McCaw, Sam Warburton, people that say the Lions are the best team in the world, the blonde mutt from the Reds, Brett Sheehan, Jesse Mogg's head, Nick White, New Zealanders that make ridiculous arguments, Johnny Sexton's robotic movement, people who criticise the Wallabies and Ewen McKenzie, those from other countries who bag the Wallabies when theyre country is ranked lower than us - cough cough Wales - Ireland - France. This list may be updated later, any other additions?
