pretty happy overall.

feel a bit sorry for popham not even being on the bench, same for mark jones too. shanklin def the right decision and gethin jenks will hopefully agian make a big impact from the bench.

hopefully jamie roberts can take the chance by the scruff of the neck. makes a nice change not to clash with united as well.

He'll play popham against Italy and possibly France.
Gatland will not 'drop' anybody till they play poorly. Sonny Parker is the lucky one but he's there for a purpose - not quite sure what.
'If you come off the bench you have to play better than the guy you replace' - Gatland!

Great news that Jonathon Thomas is back and it'll be good to see Roberts playing too. Shanklin's selection is also deserved. I think Popham's done personally, delve would've been in last time but for a lack of playing time.

Have to say i thought you were shite upto sixty minutes, you were the worse of two poor teams at that point, england were creating things but not finishing, I turned over to watch some of the super league build up and all of a sudden we were f***ing losing.

Good to see Geraghty called up for England he ran the show for the Saxons on Friday in the second half, unfortunatley the undroppable nature of Wilkinson means outside centre is his best bet.

crap first half yes, except for the backs to wall defence at the end of the half agianst the inevitable english forward assault. from the moment henson made his break it was on, one hell of a comeback in a short space of time though. difference between teams was that we had the invention whilst in your 22 in the second half that you did not have in the same situation in the first half.

will be a very tight six nations i think.

Yeah but he organises the blitz well and there aren't great options in Wales at OC.

Agreed and the way they played the last half hour was superb. They played stupidly in the first half and kicked far too much posession away anddid it poorly. once they kepot the ball in hand they took the game over and by the end were quite shockingly dominant.
