RBS 6 Nations: Week 2 Kicking

Ronan O'Gara 2 points (1 conversion)
"I play rugby to win and that's the bottom line. Our shape is great and we're very close, but we need results now. We need to be gutsy, make decisions and play what's in front of us."
Jonathan Sexton 5 points (1 conversion & 1 penalty kick)

Dimitri Yachvili 5 points (1 conversion & 1 penalty kick)
Morgan Parra 15 points (5 penalty kicks)
"We put ourselves in a corner with a catastrophic start to the match, and our game management was the same. Of course, we're very satisfied with the outcome. It's not every day you win in Dublin.... I liked the way we bounced back. It could have been a totally disastrous match but we fought our way back." - coach Marc Lièvremont

Dan Parks 6 points (2 penalty kicks)

James Hook 14 points (1 conversion & 4 penalty kicks)
"I haven't played at 10 all season so it's good to have had someone like Stephen [Jones] around with all his experience.... It's my favored position and I want to carry on."

Toby Flood 13 points (5 conversions & 1 penalty kick)
"We all know about hanging in there for 60 minutes against Italy, so we thought, why not do the scoring in the first five or 10 minutes?"
Jonny Wilkinson 6 points (3 conversions)

Mirco Bergamasco 8 points (1 conversion & 2 penalty kicks)
