Have your say

After yesterday’s win over Scotland, do you think England will win rugby’s Grand Slam?

DESPITE not hitting their best form, England’s rugby union stars kept alive their hopes of a Six Nations Grand Slam yesterday.

They managed just one try in their 22-16 triumph over Scotland in the Calcutta Cup in what coach Martin Johnson said could well be a welcome wake-up call ahead of this weekend’s final match against Ireland in Dublin.

“It was not a bad game for us to go into next week,” Johnson insisted.

“When everyone is telling you how good you are it can leak in a little bit.

“We’ll be in a fight next week. We know we can play a lot better.”

Ireland lost 19-13 to Wales at the weekend while Italy inflicted a shock 22-21 defeat on France.
