Rugby A Game For Gentlemen


#101

A little pathetic.

The England players had loads of chances to steal the ball when the Italians had tackles and no ruck. I was annoyed the ref didn’t call the Italian breakdowns out loud like he did the English.

A bit unfair as the players were then unsure.

The pick up and hit direct was the solution, at pace, as once the scrum half pauses to have a look it’s too late.

Not hard to sort out but they made it look hard for a long time! As an ex 7 I was more than frustrated watching!


#102

As an ex 9 it just proved what I have always known - you can’t expect forwards to think and play at the same time :grinning:


#103

And Wales have just pretty much sealed the series for England. Can we do the Grand Slam?


#104

What a great game of rugby. Well done Wales.


#105

Really enjoyed that. Great contest.


#106

It was a great game. The atmosphere must have been amazing with the roof shut, I bet it was deafening at times.


#107

I could never get welsh at home tickets, but always went to England games.

From a partisan point of view that’s a great result.

I hope Scotland don’t get dirty and try and ruin the game tomorrow.


#108

Scotland are still very much in it. If they beat us (England) tomorrow they will be favourites! :astonished:


#109

I spoke to a very glum Welshman yesterday before the match.

He said it was a horrible time to be a Welsh fan, if they lost the game they slipped down the rankings and would be in a group of death for the next RWC, If they won they handed England the title on a plate

A lose lose situation!


#110

Jolly good :+1:


#111

Good start for Italy!


#112

Red card?


#113

Shoulda been


#114

Only a yellow. Bit of a let off.


#115

Hope springs eternal, but I think we’ve just seen a taste of things to come…

Oh, hang on…

Yessssssss! What a try!


#116

England looking very disciplined. Porridge Wogs looking not so much…


#117

Joseph is electric


#118

Scotland are shit


#119

Oof! Great solo effort!


#120

Shame Scotland have had these injuries, they haven’t got the strength in depth on the bench. England could win this by 50 points.
