Hey, I though you were living in Stuttgart. Dam.n.. I was in Germany last week, in a business trip, in a town 30 km to Frankfurt, but Saturday I went to Frankfurt to visit the city. Promise that next time I'll drop you a message.
It's even much nearer. Frankfurt - Stuttgart is 150 Km bee-line (that means about 200 Km road or roughly 1 hour by train).
In contrast, Iasi - Timisoara is more than 510 Km bee-line (which probably corresponds to 800 Km road or two days by train... )
We're looking good at the moment. My worries are that (a) Andy Robinson is too conservative - he should be blooding players like Abbott, Lund and Simpson-Daniel; (b) France are just going to get better, and we have to play them at Stade Francais. Shouldn't discount Scotland, either; if they can get a good result against Wales, they're going to have their tails up when we go to Murrayfield, and they always raise their game against the Auld Enemy.
BTW: has anyone recognised the house in the background?
