The tricky task of balancing the RBS 6 Nations whilst appearing to give your loved one your undivided attention, takes some doing.
Now I have the edge on most of you in that department, as I had the glorious quirk of fate to have been born on Valentine’s Day, along with that great French legend, Phillipe Sella.
Sadly, for me, the great French centre, got all the decent rugby genes.
Last weekends matches, had moments of Valentine’s Day written all over them.
Yoann Maestri, the heartless Frenchman gave Johnny Sexton the elbow, and on the day before Valentine’s Day…the cad !
France scraped home by 10 points to 9 in a dull scrappy match against Ireland.
The best angle of running I’ve seen from a French back this year is Denis Charvet weaving out of the press box heading for the toilets.
In Cardiff we had to call the doctor firstly to break Scottish hearts and then to mend them
And in Rome on Valentine’s Day itself, England were shy and coy for fifty minutes before forcing themselves on their weary Italians, and the mood changed to tough love.
But in the end everyone kissed and made up !
