Hi All
Following on from XXXXXX’s note, this weekend sees the culmination of England’s most exciting 6 Nations campaign in recent years. Not only could England win the tournament but also the Grand Slam which bodes very well for the Rugby World Cup later on this year in New Zealand.
We have commissioned a special limited edition t-shirt to celebrate the England Grand Slam 2011, which we will give to the players when we win against Ireland on Saturday The t-shirt is inspired by the iconic English rose (like the kit) and 5K units will go into retail at the RFU & NikeTown London after the game.
In the spirit on owning sporting moments, we will also execute a burst of Digital Out-of-Home activity that will start right on the final whistle in over 20 of London’s most prominent underground stations through Digital Escalator Panels and Cross-Track Projections. This will be further amplified through large Transvision screens at Waterloo, Kings Cross, Euston and Charing Cross. This will run throughout the weekend until Monday night catching consumers after the game and peak rush hour times for maximum impact.
Finally, we have created an AV celebration piece that we will be pushing out to our PR & Retail over the weekend and the RFU will be posting it on their sites too. To view it please click on the link http://vimeo.com/21207620 password: 6NATIONS
Thanks to the whole team for working so quickly to pull this together and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
Have a good weekend

Great win on Saturday but it asks the question why they couldn't raise their game in the previous fixtures.

Poor displays against Italy, Wales and France.

Tbh, this game said more about the ridiculous hyperbole concerning England's performances in this year's six nations. They're an ordinary side and looked as such on saturday.

Kidney and his charges need to be asking themselves why they couldnt dispose of relatively poor French and Welsh sides. Ill discipline cost them against the French and they really just didnt build on a terrific start against the Welsh. Poor officiating didnt help but Ireland should have done a lot better than they did this year.

Really in a wider context it doesn't bode well for the northern hemisphere teams this summer.

I think,that this time 12 months from now, we'll look at this as the turning point for England winning the 2011 rugby football world cup, the wake up call

I agree.
MJ has fashioned a young, inexperienced side from an inauspicious beginning and for them to lift the Six Nations at this stage is a testament to England's growing confidence - beating Australia and France within a few months of each other is no mean feat.
Kidney, however has an ageing side only capable of raising their game once in the entire championship, at home against the auld enemy.
In fact they were very nearly turned over by Italy.
I know which manager has more reason to feel confident heading into a Word Cup year and with England's Under-20s also finishing their Six Nations campaign as Grand Slam champions there are plenty more young 'uns coming up.

This has been said before. And NZ have imploded under the pressure of being favourites before.

I don't think it'll happen in their own back yard though MPB!

They usually implode against France. France are the worst they've ever been right now.

Anything can happen in World Cups and frequently does.
Ireland's biggest problem is also one of its oldest - the ongoing Munster/Leinster rivalry which, according to a pal in the know at the IRFU,has been simmering away for months.
Bottle that up in a hotel room on tour and - just as in France - Irish morale could rapidly sink.
On the other hand they could make the remarkable transformation from zeros to heroes which saw Ireland's leading rugby pundits going from writing them off to predicting WC semi-final status on the strength of a single game.
Which earned them third place in the Six Nations.
Laughable.
