The only positive I’m taking from this is that we’ll get written off and we’re better under the radar.

I’m clutching, obviously
Not a chance I'm writing you off. You probably aren't as clear favourites as you were a couple of hours ago, but that's as far as I'm going.

Clear favourites. Neither side was clear favourites.

I think you’re 60/40 favs or 65/35 now though but still got a decent chance.

Well a win by a 35 point margin, scored 40 points, six tries, kept the opposition pointless in the second half...... and yet it's been fairly unremarkable stuff in the second half :LOL: Game's got very loose and errors crept in.

Two from two though is ultimately what matters and it was a very easy win, a very encouraging start to the tournament (and world cup year).

Gatland's game plan will be a lot better than France's today, and Wales are a better team, and they're at home, and they're playing the hated English.

It's going to be a tough old game whoever comes out on top.

I'll wait to see what the situation is with Mako before making a prediction I think.

England’s management of games has been great the last two games. France were diabolical today but England are making teams look really poor.

Wales were average yesterday against a spirited Italy. If England beat Wales (which i think they will sadly as i’ll be there) they’ll be slamming and a decent shout for the World Cup I reckon.

Match in Cardiff is massive...

A repeat of the 30-3 this certainly won’t be that’s for sure. Big burly ball carriers all through this England side. Makes a huge difference.

Should be a cracker

Do you have bad luck watching us live then? If so I would kindly ask you not to go mate.
