Another one for the forwards!
England a little bit off the pace after substituting their big hitters
Bit of a damp squib for the last quarter but a deserved and pretty emphatic win for England
Got to be pleased with that. Looking a serious side again
Wales in Cardiff next.
A try in the first 90 seconds would be handy in that one
Interesting take from NZ Stuff
Haha, love that article. It proves they are worried
Yep, we’re really shitting our trousers.

Wales have picked Anscombe at 10…
England by at least two scores.
TMO a very popular man!
Where have you been France!
I’m glad we’ve already played them.
That has broken the deadlock
What tool them so long?
26 minutes, unheard of.
The fitness levels are astonishing
How good was that from May
Phew. Tough game.
A few running repairs might be needed at half time.
England guilty of excitement.
Some more calm and deeper lines at the end here and they’d have been in. Too many forwards stood still, hoping for glory from a standing start (and getting in way of a wider pass).
