Choosing to watch this match rather than Ireland v SA. Want to see what our next opponents have got left after their win v NZ and a lot of travel...

Decent game so far, but the pitch is in a shocking state. Grass left far too short so will just be mud in a couple of weeks.
Toby F having a shocker by his standards though!

Listening to Eddie and Stuart Barnes earlier just makes me realise how good Ben Kay, Healey etc are and how much I prefer the BT sport coverage to the Sky or BBC.

J Davies blatantly sticks an arm out and knocks on, no effort to catch it, and Jiffy claims he was clearly going for the catch - pathetic.

Kick from Biggar surely wrong side of corner flag.

Looks like Wales fall short again.

Gatland gets very touchy when people talk about Warrenball. But given the way Wales played today - quick linouts width on the ball off set piece little blokes with a step etc as a deliberate change its prettty obvious that even he knew! Funny to see plan B doesnt beat Aus either.

I think Gatland had a light bulb moment after the first Lions test.

It's got a long way to go though, in many instances it was a demonstration in moving the ball laterally!!

I think the problem will be that they concede more tries, Shaun Edwards has his work cut out. Having said that England need work as well.

I noticed that, seemed that everyone was unanimous in the commentary team that he was trying to catch it - seen yellow cards given for muchless and was surprised it was dismissed by all concerned! I reckon even Davies thought he was going, from his face and obvious avoidance of the ref!

Yep, they got away with that and the Halam Amos try was awarded when he lost contact as he was grounding it, the caption that goes with this is, 'Halam Amos scores his try' when the photo shows he has clearly lost contact with the ball.

In fairness the Curtley Beal try was a knock on as well as it happens, still an amazing bit of rugby though!!

Clearly? Right hand seems in contact with the ball there...

Academic, but he was holding the ball in that hand, is he still in contact?

On another note, for all the talk of expansive rugby WG has called up Jamie Roberts!

Really chuffed for the bloke, have to say that I didnít know much about him but he has been a really pleasant surprise when he has stepped in this season. Solid in the scrum and a handful in the loose. Well done Scott!
