I watched and enjoyed the Bath Wasps game last night. As a neutral it was lovely to just enjoy a game of rugby. I read some remarks on the Bath forum after the game and I thought it was the same as reading ours...England Players playing better for England and not their clubs (see Watson and Joesph and exchange for Lenny). A coach who is out of his depth (Hopper and Smurph for us) and most telling was the doom mongers and happy clappers!! It appears that all teams have the same views.
I thought that Umaga was really poor and bottled quite a lot, certainly for the Underhill try. Didn’t seem to want to do some of the dirty work and get his body on the line. In the Smith V Umaga contest I think Smith is better by a margin.
JJ is not in great form and was anonymous for most of the game. If preistland is out for sometime with a head injury after 2 quick failed HIA’s Bath could be in trouble. DeGlanville is a talent for Bath. Looks good at fallback and better than Watson under the high ball.
Odogwu is some player! He is light years away from what i saw at Sale. He is a real talent and would think Jones would be taking a good long look at him.
Wasps are clearly going int he right direction, Bath are at the tipping point. They win a couple of games all is rosey here in Bath, they lose and the knives will be out for Hooper.
I agree I thought that Umaga was poor. In terms of players impressing Eddie Jones, I don't think there would have been many as good as last night's game was. Maybe Jack Willis, Launchbury, as I have stated in an earlier post would Odogwu fit into England's game-plan? Bath players maybe Obano, I thought Ewels was poor but Jones continously selects him regardless ahead of better locks.

Some of Austin Healey's commentary in the Newcastle game is just dreadful.

"If a professional rugby player can't get the ball out to the winger, he should go and be a bricklayer instead."

He gleefully jumps all over every error with his OTT criticism.

What a nasty, arrogant, unpleasant man.

Speaking to my Gloc mate,apparently May was Cips choice and Ackerman wanted to spend the money elsewhere. Read into that what you will!

5 points from 4th and 9 points from bottom.
If Quins lose we will go 6th I believe.

Thought May was really poor, easily outmatched by Radwan.

May didn't have the best game.

Radwan looks absolute quality though. I wouldn't be surprised if he pushes Cokanasiga and Thorley out the England squad. Same sort of pace as Thorley but a rock solid defensive game.
