Well done to Wales for narrowly beating a 14 man Scotland team at Murrayfield today, England still look very poor though after beating Italy at Twickers.

England lost that game due to a terrible lack of discipline and some of the worst refereeing decisions I've ever seen!
Well done to Wales (I don't really mean that but I suppose I better say it) :whistle: :lol:

That seems to be Eddie Jones all over. He's had it in for Wales of course since the Warren Gatland connection.

Bring back Stuart Lancaster - he was a nice guy!

Wales beat England because they played with more discipline and deserved to win. Ball in hand England looked dangerous but these days rugby is so technical and discipline, not giving penalties away is a massive part of the game.

As to the game being technical Slogan a few years ago one of the locals in our pub was really into the game.Unlike us if you hit him and he gets up hit him again types.We got through near enough the first half of a game with him explaining things as they went along and answering questions.I actually enjoyed it never having played a real game.He came in a few times and did it but then got posted so we are back to guessing.i

Time for a major revamp of the England team, too many of them are there by reputation and not current form.

Who would I drop, Farrell, Ford, Youngs, Vunipola x 2. The two Simmonds brothers down at Exeter are crying out to be selected and I am sure there are other up and coming youngsters who could fill the spaces. Unless change occurs immediately you can write off any chance England might have had in RWC 2023 now.

Cannot with current selection see them beating either Ireland or France. As for Pascal Gaüzère he should be struck off international refereeing panel.

The refereeing performance can be summed up as Errors of Judgement plus Errors in Law.

Well done Wales, deserved win, Farrell needs to keep his mouth shut, too much descent towards the ref', it's not football.
Can they get the Slam?
Not sure but they will be up for it.
:clap: :clap:
If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!

Too much dissent as well, it was shocking but the ref deserved it!
