If England play as well as they did against Ireland and France then I'll be keeping the sound on, it'll be fun!

I dont want to jinx it but if we play at our best we will be too much for Wales,theres hardly anyone in their 23 I would swap with. But everything goes out the window in these games. England by 5

I suspect this will be a close game.
England are due an off game & Moon isn't the threat that Vunipola is so won't keep the opposition as occupied, reducing space for the others.

Shaun Edwards is a crafty defence coach and won't let Wales defence be as easily unlocked as France & Ireland.

That said beating Australia isn't the definition of a wonder team.

Wales in Cardiff! That's a hell hole for visiting teams. England need to put a few points on the board early, otherwise the crowd will work themselves up into a frenzy! :smt005 :smt005

Why do we have this thread when we already have the 6 Nations thread?

Probably to keep this thread on a specific theme, rather than a general one. Is it a problem? :smt017

Absolutely awful display by England in the second half. For me Gatland totally outsmarted Jones.

We knew there was a 2 week break in which Wales would have studied our gameplay. Therefore we should have spent those 2 weeks in adopting a different approach. Arrogant by us to not change up our game.

Firstly, we should have scaled back on the kicking and played with quicker ball into the wide channels. Secondly, dialed back on the blitz and drifted across. We would have known the Welsh would have been studying the first games in absolute minute detail.

Farrell has been great the first two games but was blunt in this game. When ahead we should have been going for the jugular, but seemed to just stop playing and give away stupid penalties. Maybe biased but why not bring on Ford the attacking player and really go for the win.

Or Genge, absolute waste to bring him on with only 4 minutes to go!

Talk about all the hard work in the first two games being wasted! Hopefully Ireland can do us a favour against Wales.
