IT DOES NOT MATTER. Win, win, win. And give Wales some credit.

Thought Wales were awful too, lived off our errors and penalties. Poor all round!

No,there was no option on the red button. I stuck with it though and watched it upstairs and left my stick down there.

England seemed out of sorts from the off ( or at least, not in top form); missed kicks, passes not going to hand etc. and Wales upped their intensity. Surprised by some of the apparently panicky moves and non-dominance in the scrum. Nonetheless, England's worst performance of the series produced a win.

Good sign when a team performing that bad wins. Wales were worryingly bad and have been for a while!

You can't argue with the results but England are dreadful to watch. I can't help but feel there's so much more in this team but this super conservative gameplan is mind-numbing to watch.

Awful game, badly officiated, biggest loser Rugby itself.
England's work on high kicks illegal, doubt they will get away with it again.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

Italy are playing quite well against France’s 2nd XV but are making too many simple mistakes. 10-5 to France at half time and all to play for in the 2nd half.

He's right about the kick tactics though. We ran some pretty obvious blocking lines and there were some pretty blatant obstructions to aid the back 3. I'm also surprised that the French officials allowed it all game to be honest.

Happened with both sides,what about when Daly got pinged for playing the ball on the floor? That was the worse block of the day beforehand,it was farcical 😂
