Fingers crossed for Murrayfield magic

I'm making my way to Edinburgh this week to watch Ireland play Scotland in Murrayfield.

I thought I'd be making the trip on a high this weekend, but then it all went a bit pear-shaped in Cardiff, just look at Rob Kearney's face (left).

It was quite depressing to see an Irish team play so badly but Wales were impressive and we were beaten fair and square by Sam Warburton (inset) and Co.

And so the outcome of the Six Nations all depends on us winning (and winning very big) in Murraryfield.

It's always the worst way to win a tournament to my mind - by having to rely on other teams' results. But fingers crossed!
