England was frustrating but luckily second half they started to perform and some of the youngsters showed they should be challenging for spots. Hope Willis is not too bad looked awful injury.

Wales lucky again, felt sorry for Scotland

Happy to win playing badly for large parts of the game. A game Scotland really should have won.

Helped by the sending off and scotland blowing a try scoring opportunity, both gave Wales a big confidence boost. 

Some really good individual performances Rees Zammit, Hogg &  Russell stood out in the backs, Johnny Gray had another good game.

Some impact from the bench, we looked far more comfortable with Hardy and Sheedy on.

May be the time for Biggar to slip into a bench role.

Wales massively lucky again. Imo, they look way off standard atm despite two wins. Two wins against sides with a player sent off. 
 

a big bad bash down to reality next weekend vs England IMO. IF, and a big if, we do beat England then we should go on to win the whole thing but i can see England crushing us.

I see they have been able to pass the law so no relegation to the Premiership for this season due to the virus. Makes sense as some games have been awarded so might not show the true reflection of who should be bottom.

They are going to promote the team from the Championship (prob Sarries) and then close the door. I have heard that they might extend the closed door for a few more seasons which if they do BT Sport have already voiced they are not happy as some games the teams might be playing for nothing if not near the playoff spots. Also the Championship are not pleased as some teams are looking to try and break into the top league.

If that happens Rich then expect Ealing Trailfinders to put up a legal challenge;)

Saw the Bath v Gloucester game last night. Not exactly a thriller but two players sent off for tackles which had contact with the head.

Think this might be like the high tackles we saw couple years back where a few red cards will be shown till players learn and adapt that tackles need to be low so not to risk a card.

For me, the machismo swinging arm, usually a bulging bicep, and the shoulder charge, should never have become prevalent.

At some point someone decided that a tackle wasn’t a tackle unless it hurt the opposing player.

Used particularly in clearing out a ruck or the higher wrap up tackle to stop a pass.

No one should be aiming a tackle, especially a weaponised one, above the chest, especially in the clear out when head and neck are so low and exposed.

The draws for the Euro competitions will be made soon with a KO competition with sides who won two home games guaranteed a home fixture

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/56184748

From this I also had to smile as the fixtures were cancelled last year due to France not wanting English teams coming over or them coming to us as we had high cases of the virus. But now France have had to cancel training as they have a outbreak of the virus. Maybe the RFU should say we do not want them ;)

I did wonder where the games were, Sky Sports really has gone downhill and not the big boys now with BT, streaming and also Eurosport and Free Sports are picking up. Stuff

You were saying :lol: Have a few VBs and celebrate an outstanding Welsh win:t:

Is there a better forward in world rugby at the moment than Taulupe Faletau;)

Monsieur Pascal Gauzere had an absolute blinder:rofl: 

England were more creative but their discipline was shocking!!
