Are you actually Welsh bod? Always wondered.

Warburton was dropped in the air by his own lifters. Then started yelling foul. Not a penalty.

Richard Cockerill was very upset with the form of Ben Youngs so he went to visit a Sports Psychologist.
"He's a great player, but he's lost his way", said Cockers, "What am I to do to get himon track?".
The shrink replied, "You've had Ben from a very early age and all it has been for him is Rugby, Rugby, Rugby. He needs an interest away from the sport to take his mind of his game. For example why don't you tell him to learn to play a musical instrument?".
On his way back to the ground Richard walks past Sheehans music shop, and in the window he sees a gleaming brass trumpet. Without any fear of breaking salary cap rules he rushes in brandishing his Tigers credit card and the purchase is made.
Walking into the ground he is accosted by Peter Tom. "Ah, Cockerill, what's that you have there?".
"It's a trumpet, sir, I've got it for Ben Youngs".
"Fine swap, laddie, Fine swap", says the Jerseyman.

Youngs tore us apart at the Rec last season. What a transformation. He was class.
His lack of form has the same characteristics as Phillips' lack of form last year and our own Claassy's - crabbing.
By the time the ball is released, the receiver has man and ball.
Unfortunately our fortunes nose dived when he came on.

I don't think Youngs shoukd be in the squad because he isn't in the greatest form but it is accentuated by being in an Englnd team that seems to have ni idea what to do when it has the ball and we end up with an out of form player trying to force the game

Coalminer - he seems to be yet another victim of an arid AP/RFU coaching environment. The WRU don't have 20% of their resources across all levels yet consistently deliver bright young talents that execute and entertain on the pitch - watch out for Travis Knoyle @ 9 when he's fit. The French aren't exactly rushing to buy up the RFU product are they?

Still a yellow from my view - Robshaw made a deliberate movement and the result was dangerous. Then again, I doubt you've ever played 2nd row eh GR?

You know that both Warburton and Robshaw are FLANKERS, right?

Far better than I expected, England actually brought an attacking game this week. The phase play before half time was excellent with quick ball and a constant change in the point of attack. Our lack of control during the sin bin set the tone for the rest of the game and we headed backwards from there.

The subs really did change the game, and unfortunately for the worse. Agree about Youngs and I screamed at the TV when he was brought on and I didn't do anything right.

Amazingly the guys that lost us the game today are the experienced ones and should be a controlling influence. I think Lancaster may need to have a clear out part 2 with more guys from the Johnson era dropped. Stevens, Youngs, Flood, Ashton and Foden were ranging from bad to terrible and I would like to see their egos damaged and some FORM players brought in.

I'm now down in the dumps about the game, not because we lost but because we should have won.

Anyone else note that the 'wing' chasing Williams down was in fact Croft!! A far cry from a work hungry back row if he just hangs around in the outside channels.

Sadly second season syndrome seems to be hitting a lot of our players.

Foden may be quieter than usual, but he is potentially world class. Brown never will be.

Ashton needs to stop sulking about having his mega-ego deflated and get back to work. He has been anonymous verging on a passenger.

England's inability to fashion a line break probably isn't helping his ability to track and sniff try scoring support lines.

Any ideas why North was allowed to knock the ball into touch after Flood's kick through? Strettle was all over him and he made no attempt to play the ball. Should have been a penalty to England. Nice of Walsh to miss Wales' knock on too that ended up costing England 3 points; and nice of him to not go back for a deserved (4th) penalty on the Welsh try line in the last play.

So one turnover separated a team that's been together for three years, and one that's been together 3 weeks. Class.

Sorry bod, my mistake, I'll rephrase...

One turnover separated a team that's been together for three years and one that's been together for five weeks. Amusing how Farrell and co made Priestland look out of his depth.

I ask again since you must have missed my previous two questions, are you Welsh?

Three or four years together and that's the best Wales can do against England's bunch of rookies, 7 of whom had never played at Twickenham before smiling smiley Morgan looked good though. Poor Priestland.

I don't believe you.

Given the average age of the Wales starting XV was well below that of England I fail to see where your "been together for 4 years" proposition comes from.
(Since U15s for North and Cuthbert?)
You are regularly pretty clueless, but this morning you are hell bent on excelling in this attribute.

I don't care what you believe - you are obviously deluded.

Don't be late for chapel this evening mind boyo!

Struck a nerve did I bod? Gatland has had the majority of those players together for years and after being thrashed by England this time last year in Cardiff, Wales came up against a brand new rookie England team who've only played together for a few weeks and just about snuck a win because of one crucial steal and plenty of help from Walsh. Plenty to look forward to for England smiling smiley hope Priestland bounces back from his humbling from Farrell (and Manu).

Please feel free to not care what I think, most afford you the same courtesy, Taffy.

Nope, watched my son in a play last night so went nowhere near the bar. Is that your default insult? I know it's your default problem. You just frankly bore me with the bashing of a country that has given you a home and a living. I find it ungrateful, arrogant and chippy. Got it?

I suggest Bod learns some maths - the average age of the teams was within a couple of months of each other, and Wales had far, far more caps: 25.4 yrs vs 25.3 years

182 caps vs 488 caps

For England, an untried lock pairing, untried 8/9/10, untried centre combo.
