Hi Fellas,

I believe the Wales - Scotland game puts the England result against Scotland in perspective, Scotland may well have beaten Wales had they not had two players sent off.

When did Wales score those tries?

Cheers

Mac

I know Mac, such is the closeness of of international rugby.

Remember, a sending off probably cost Wales the world cup. It's very raw with us Taffs at the moment.

What goes around comes around.

Mind you, those welsh wingers are fucking fast.

Regards

Mac, you right.

Mind you he isn't as fast as me when I was playing. he has a good side step but nowhere near in comparison to my 'speed wobble'.

For me it was an excellent performance from a young, inexperienced side. I believe England have a lot to look forward to.

Should that last 'try' have been given? I reckon there was a split second when it was down with pressure. Strange innit that even with all of this reviewing they still can't give a try cos they're not 'certain'.

Agreed, it was an excellent performance from a young England side against a good solid Welsh team. However, I can't get my head around all the substituting that seems to go on in the proffesional game nowadays which isn't related to injury. You'd have thought that given the amount of time that players have to dedicate to training, and all the nutritional advice they get, that they'd be able to go for a full 80 minutes without having to come off. Players are getting thrown into an uptempo game cold and they are making crucial mistakes. (Stevens comes on and is immediately pulled up in the scrum for going in with his head, and then gives a way a soft penalty in front of the posts for handling in a ruck. Lawes, going forward gets robbed of the ball, and Wales score a try. Ben Youngs, throws a pass to no one in particular, which hits Lawes's leg, and again a penalty is given for offside.)

Hi Fellas,

England and Scotland beat themselves this last weekend and did Strettle score? Perhaps yes but cannot play without Referees.

There has to be better Scrumhalves in England than those two clowns who played on Saturaday they were bad (Dave fancy a comeback?).

Why do they bother with Matt Stevens everytime he comes on he gives away crucial penalties. The Referee even warned him but still persisted in handling on the ground (Get shut). And a 2nd Row getting a ball ripped by a Centre!!

I suspect that game lost England the Grand Slam because they will beat France. I hate to say it I would rather Wales won it than the French.

Cheers

Mac

A good result for the Irish but they should have put it away in the first Half also a good result for the Welsh the only team able to win the Grand Slam but!!!

On that French display England have a good chance of beating them next week and put them in with a shout of the championship if Wales slip up.

Cheers

Mac
