Massively excited for this. Even more excited that I can watch this without strawberry floating up my sleeping pattern like it did last time - I have tickets to the Wales/Fiji game on the 1st October and am expecting a famous win

And Halfpenny as well, poor Wales
Despite Ireland's shocking first half I'm not too concerned yet. England have to start all guns blazing with Fiji, Wales & Australia first up whereas we have Canada, Romania and Italy, so we can slowly get into the tournament.
Was sat really close to the Webb injury - horrific. Not even a good Welsh performance - atmosphere was awful for Millenium standards (massively dropped after first injury and even more after Halfpenny went off). Ugh. Also I'm fairly sure the Welsh goat that accompanies the marching band before the game has died. This was my 8th millennium stad game in the last 4 years and the first without the goat.
Not too concerning for Ireland yesterday but Bowe was strawberry floating abysmal, most unlike him. Looked like he had no idea what position he was supposed to be in and when Johnny May steamrollers you then you know you're in trouble. Not too convinced with Zebo at FB either but I'm guessing that was more a utility role than anything else. Far too scrappy from both sides overall although positives from Eng's second row and Brown was excellent (but then when is he not).
Any point doing a list of who's supporting who/who everyone thinks will win in the OP?
Three of our potentially top performers in Davies, Webb and Halfpenny out. Not good for a side who struggle with depth anyway. Will be nothing short of a miracle if they get out the group.
I actually think Webb is the bigger blow. I think people really underestimate Biggar's kicking and Liam Williams going into full back isn't a bad thing by any means. Halfpenny isn't exactly the complete full back after all.
I agree about Biggar but surprised to hear someone say that about Webb. I know he plays okay for Ospreys but whenever I see him in a Wales shirt he doesn't strike me as that great. In fact I've always been about confused about the dual-Rhys policy whilst Biggar is sitting on the bench.
I am not happy about Gatland playing our best team in a friendly against Italy and not making subs. But I can say that all in Hindsight....it is a detremental blow for wales.
We still have a brilliant team, and still have passion to win. Going to Twickenham will be huge for Wales and I hope beyond hope we can upset England there, because I will not be able to live it down from my gloating uni mates for years to come. The bunch of tosspots.
