I think we are in for a close game this weekend, Wales vs England. Some interesting changes to the welsh side, not too sure how i feel about jones replacing hook on the bench. However i still think wales will pull it off by a healthy difference.
Wales should take the triple crown.

Ha ha Cymru, managing expectations are we? I know this England side are probably the least accomplished for a long time and, its true, Wales have a mighty pack some thrilling runners, and class to spare .
..Still, England have had awful conditions, they look fit, well organised young and ready to tackle until they drop. We have a kicker, the wrecking ball,at centre, pace if little guile, in attack nd , do you know what, I just fancy England to spoil the Welsh day out.
Come on England !

Yes the better team won, but England had a go made themselves awkward and it was awfully close .

What do you call a Welshman on the winning team at Twickenham?

Nobody knows, it happens so rarely they've never bothered coming up with a name.

Joking aside, that was a great match and begrudgingly I'd say the better team won. When Wales went down to 14 men I thought it was going to be all over but for the Welsh to claw back 3 points then was the beginning of the end for England. I was a little upset the try wasn't given at the end if only for the overly dramatic last-kick-of-the-match-from-an-awkward-position-for-the-match excitement but that was still the best match of the tournament so far. I'd certainly back Wales for the Grand Slam now.

I think that Wales just edged it, but England have come on big time. I'd like to think we can go on to beat the Irish and the French, big call I know, but I think they're capable.

Well I really enjoyed this match. Competitive and played in excellent spirit. Though I did have an awkward feeling when I realised the ref was Steve Walsh! Him aside who would have thought that that was only Englands third test together? Fantastic pressure preventing Wales from playing their usual game. Well done to them.
As for the try? I thought it was good an deven though the converstion was a difficult one had the game ended in a draw there should be no complaints. We will however take the points.

Yeah, I somehow imagine that the pandemic has not been much of a great "leveler" for those poorest in our society. :( more
