England v Italy: (31) 59 – 13 (6)

8 tries!  EIGHT!  Mah goodness.

4 of them were Chris Ashton’s.  Why, yes, that is the sound of records being smashed.  Chris…what do you eat for breakfast?!

Anyway, he did the swallow dive again – twice (his 1st and 4th try; England’s 1st and 8th try).  Haha, Johno seemed more amused by the cheekiness today.  Boy likes to have his serious with a side of fun, and I like him for it.

swallow dive no. 1

spot the difference (aka swallow dive no. 2)

Man of the Match

2010 IRPA Try of the Year award

don't need lightman to tell me what emotion this is

Also, I adore rugby commentators.  After Jonny made a brilliant tackle on an Italian player who was well on his way to scoring a try:

*dreamy sigh* 78 minutes, and Jonny Wilkinson refuses. to. yield.  Puts his body through the mincer again.

Italy came achingly close to winning last week, and this match was quite the lashing.  Yikes.
