I must say after watching the Ireland game I was looking forward to this one to hopefully restore my faith in the game but it turned out to be even worse with long drawn out competitions to see who could win win the award for the most aimless kicking team of all time.The first half in particular was truly shocking as an advertisment for the game.Things at least improved in the second half.
Thank f-ck for the best scrum half in the 6N, in my opinion, as he really tried to make the game more than just a kickfest with some lovely breaks and other quickness of thought and action.Just a pity he had a donkey outside him who unfortunately because of his goalkicking and safeness is there for the long haul.
Very impressed today with Nick Easter and Haskell was also very good but I thought only got MOTM because of the tries.Care should have got it.Moody also played reasonably.
England tight 5 as you expect.Nothing flash but very solid.
England backs not really in the game.Wilko doesn't realise yet it is a 15 man game.Neither does Johnno despite picking reasonably talented backs, the best of them being Cueto in my opinion and how annoying for a player of his ability to be stuck in a 10 man team.
Wales very poor.
Wyn Jones: What a moron.
Powell: What a useless f-cker.Ryan Jones: What an overrated player he has always been.
Cooper: Shockingly bad.The other lad who came on(can't recall his name) was much better.
The backline were extremely poor with only Hook showing any element of danger and even that was only a couple of times.
Byrne: Safest hands in the world my a-se.That Eddie Butler is some tool.
The best part out this game was the commentary of Brian Moore.Calling Wyn Jones "thick" for his trip.Excellent stuff.Moore usually says what I'm thinking about stupid players while other commentators beat about the bush.
At least I also got the result I was looking for.Always nice to see the miserable Gatland on the losing side.Mind you Johnno is pretty miserable as well.
