Twitter reaction to England’s Six Nations win over Ireland

by Josh Powell | February 10, 2013

England gave their Six Nations Grand Slam ambitions a huge boost by beating Ireland 12-6 at the Aviva Stadium this afternoon. The English have made it two wins out of two with a performance that was disciplined and effective rather than massively entertaining.

It puts England in a great position ahead of their next game at Twickenham against a France side that is all over the place after loses to Italy and Wales.

Stuart Lancaster’s men are the firm favourites at 2/7 to win the Six Nations with four games remaining. Here is how Twitter reacted to events in a wet and windy Dublin this afternoon.

Al Murray manages to make a good point about the state of the pitch and show why he isn’t a very good comedian all in 140 characters…

Jamie Heaslip had a bit of a mare in the first half. Fair to say Brian O’Driscoll won’t be letting the Irish captain hold his new-born baby any time soon…
