Nervous about tonight. Scotland are inconsistent, but if they pay well then Wales may receieve a spanking. I recon it'll more likely be a close match and a bit of a grind though.

It's going to be close either way, and I fully expect Wales to pick up even more injuries today. A lot will hinge on who gets to execute their game plan, or can adapt to choke out the other side's. I definitely don't want to call anything.

That Jack Willis injury in the England Italy game. :dread: I'm pretty sure the ref's mic picked up the sound of his leg breaking.

You will not see many better performances in the Six Nations than what Rees-Zammit produced today.

His try to win the game was sensational. His kick out of defence in the 78th min to secure it was absurd.

Wow.

Rees-Zammit. :wub:

That scoreline flattered Wales, for sure, but there were some amazing individual performances, and coming away with a bonus point after spending so little time in the opposition 22 is jammy as could be. Happy with the result, but there's a lot of room for improvement still.

Nice to get the win. Gives us hope for the England Triple Crown match, but Wales are still massive underdogs. Here's hoping the Oirish can beat the French on the morrow.

France v New Zealand as the opening fixture for the 2023 WC!

Not sure if Wales having Fiji as their first fixture will be a blessing or a curse. At least its not in Nantes like last time :dread:

Looking forward to getting strawberry float all in the ballots, but should make for a nice holiday if I can get tickets.

Followed by England v Argentina :datass:

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I'm hoping to get tickets for some of the Wales group stages also. Have good memories of Bordeaux from the Wales v Slovakia game in Euro 2016 so would be great to go back for the Fiji game.

Gonna be one of those days.

Edit: Wow, didn't think I'd have been proven right that quickly.

England looked brilliant and dangerous in attack when they got going but just gave silly penalty after penalty.

Wales are going to win the Championship just by being disciplined.

England aren't going to win anything with their lack of discipline. Utterly moronic, Jones should give the likes of Genge and Robson the hairdryer on the way out and shut the door on them until they've smartened up.

It's so frustrating. Every damn time. Penalty penalty penalty.

Itoje spent the game offside too.

I understand that is his game-he plays right on the edge but it comes a point where the penalty count is hurting more than any benefit.

What a weird 6 nations this is turning out to be. I can’t believe Wales have won the triple crown. They cam fifth last year and then had a dour autumn. Luck has certainly been on Wales’ side. But to win three tough games is great to see. I still think France will have us in Paris but it’s been much more enjoyable than I imagined it would be this year!

France have to play England and Scotland before us. Entirely possible we could win the Championship even after losing to France.
