What was I saying yesterday about an Italian victory changing things?
Well, at half time I was checking Nige's prediction sheet just in case I'd keyed in his forecast incorrectly. He was the only one to forecast an Italian win. So close Nige!
As England discovered yesterday and nearer to home last week, the second half can bring about big changes.
Although the final score was closer than most of us predicted, it was a clear victory for the Irish, but all credit to the Italians for a good game.
Enough waffle. Who's won?
Ray Barker 5 points clear of anyone else.
Well done. There's an envelope for you at reception.
