As of this weekend the most capped scrum half in English Rugby history will be a Tyke.

Congratulations Danny.

Congrats to Danny, his performances of late as a dynamic "finisher" for England have been brilliant: now he has got the deserved honour of starting. He is mentioned in Eddie Jones initial "mind games" salvo, too:

He needs to step it up to run the game though.

Sorry about your fiver, Gel, but I am sure William Hill will put it to good use.

Other than that Danny played well and the right result for England, though not really as dominant as, playing at Twickers, they should have been. If the match had been at the Principality I think the result would have been reversed.

England were lucky, video ref got the Handscomb "try" wrong for me. Some great defence all the same.



If I had all the money I've spent on drink ..... I'd spend it on drink.

I think on balance England deserved the win. However they just couldn't get a decisive third score that would have put the game to bed, and lowered my blood pressure by 50%. We lost a lot of penalties at the breakdown - many were 50:50 calls so I think that the luck evened up over the game. With regard to the Wales (I don't suppose we will ever here the end of it) disallowed "try", then the TMO got it right IMHO. The ref asked try Yes or no? So the doubt goes to England.
Full marks to Wales, the Eddie Jones sledging worked but they were still strong enough to put England under pressure at the end. Also, although 20 kg lighter in the scrum, they more than held their own: England are missing a heavy number eight.

England did a good defensive job and won ugly. I'd probably have started Teo over Joseph, who I feel has gone a little backwards. Care is a great finisher, but not such a good starter, maybe food for thought there. Very tight call on MoM, I thought Farrell was excellent. That 10/12 axis works very well. Wales were a difficult side meet and Eddie's nephew Alun Wyn was outstanding. A good game for the purist.



Miserati - and Proud to be!

I couldn't agree more, especially after the Ireland-Italy game (or non-game?).
