Ah well it was a decent game of Rugby, even had a bit of handbagging...and it's not that far to Wales :thumbs_up::yes:

And it wasn't a try

 

Oh it was definitely a try! :angry:

It was a long, cold miserable journey home :(

Sorry I agree with KevG. His hand did not show clear downward pressure on the ball. Having said that, after the match Jonny Wilkinson said that he has seen less contact awarded as a try. But I still agree with KevG. It honestly would not bother me if Wales, Ireland or Scotland won it.:thumbsup:

Agreed.  Post Brexit we can change this - Dad's Army theme is a suggestion :whistle:

 

(The french could come on to the 'Allo 'Allo theme too)

What about "swords of a thousand men" - Ten Pole Tudor.:thumbsup:

no control of the ball he was touching it granted but no control. The men did better than the ladies that was a real thumping

Has the rule not changed from "control" to "downward pressure"? The first grounding was by Wales.large.655_F46_A7-067_F-44_FF-_AA3_B-43815761_BA73.png.3378e0f53565c3aac8cebd847f7339ac.png

From that shot even more convinced the decision was right

I have to admit to getting my hopes up a bit when Wales went on the attack after getting within a converted try of winning. It got very exciting at the end. 

It's going to take a good Ireland win and a hopeful Ireland defeat for Wales to grab it now though.

Let's not let this get out of hand, let's just all agree it was a try and move on :)

I think this could rumble for a while, but end result England won :thumbs_up:

agreed England were on the ropes a bit at the end. Just watched the Scotland game and they looked a lot better than last week in the second half, though Flynns kicking from hand was awful

I don't think Ireland would mind beating England, would they? :)

Think it could be a fun match, especially if neither side lose before it, I'm hoping Wales can beat Ireland first. :yes:

 Much to happen yet, though a GS decider between two 4/4 teams on Saint Pat's day could be a cracker!

Yep, if things play out the right way we could be in for a storming end to the tournament!

The most frustrating thing about the 6 nations (and the autumn internationals), is the bloody rabbits won't stay still long enough for us to put the little Wales kits on them that we bought them.

Can't say that I am ecstatic that England lost but it is good to see Scotland back to being a force to be reckoned with. We need really strong competition at home if we are to take on Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in the World Championships although maybe we should compete as team GB.
