Been very pleased with two performances by the squad so far.
Two bonus point wins (as should have been expected) and no injuries is a great start.
The Argentina v Tonga game on Saturday will be particularly interesting now ... Tonga are a tough team and Argentina whilst having a much more talented squad, HAVE to win after losing to France.
The game will give us a good steer as to what we may expect in 9 days time when we play them.
Things seem to be going well, and it seems a very happy camp.
I have great hopes of reaching the final ... and if we can it's a fifty fifty chance against any team.
Not a huge fan of rugby union but I do watch the major games. The two games so far have basically been walkovers so far I’d say. I watched NZ against SA and it looked like a different game. I can’t see past those two final wise, unless they have to play each in a knockout round before. I do hope England make the final as it will be a great way to celebrate the end of stoptober.
France have utterly brilliant, mercurial individual players ... but aren't a great 'team'.
They can be unplayable, but rarely, so I think we'll be too strong and controlled for them.
Argentina have improved massively since joining the rugby championship, playing NZ, Aussies and SA on a regular basis. But I am looking forward to seeing their performance on Saturday morning against Tonga.
I am quietly confident we'll beat both teams ... but I was pretty confident in 2015 ... right upto the moment we lost our 12 point lead in the Wales match and went on to crumble.
You never can be sure, which is what makes it such fun
Great result and in places a good performance by England.
Really pleased ... played three ... won three with three bonus points.
Creating good tries and playing with discipline so far.
Couldn't have hoped for better at this stage.
Onwards to France

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
