No because what will happen if I start banging on now about how useless you English are is that Fiji will beat Wales. England will beat Australia and Wales v Oztralia becomes do or die for both nations and Australia will win with an injury time try. England and the Aussies will qualify and Wales will go out.

So for now I'm being nice...well, quiet.

That said, if you want to stand in the corner and call yourselves a bunch of effeminate, cake baking, crocheting sporting incompetents...you are of course welcome.

Nice and quiet - "that's an interesting interpretation" Effeminate is bloody rude. We cocked-up is a more balanced opinion, particularly after taking possession of the ball for 75% of the time. You did good to claw back, and those penalties - Duh.

As for Bake-Off, there must be a serious number of welsh folks viewing that pantomine. The tall guy who went out last week was a good laugh.

Sporting incompetents - Hmmnn, err No, I don't think so, consider for a moment our gold medals in the Olympics and World championships. Double golds and triple double golds - we're pretty nifty as it 'appens.

United Kingdom - united we stand, divided we fall, whose arguing? Only narrow minded twerps want to chop it up, talk is cheap.

BTW, just got 4 more ARA single vineyard 'select blocks' 2012 from Majestic, who found more for me at other stores - it's very good, authentic, and remarkable for £7.99.

Cheers

Well said Dunc, there's still plenty to play for, it aint over yet!

I hope we have something to celebrate on Saturday, it will be a very difficult game against the Oz's, I cant even have a drink to settle my nerves as Im doing the 'Sober for October' challenge :?

Blimey....there's defensive you all are :roll:

Fiji have a good record against Wales and have won in Cardiff before. I'm sure Hallom Amos has great potential but I'm glad that Alex Cuthbert is back for this game.

I think if Australia play an attacking game they will beat us both.

JE 13 has not developed at all. Fortunately both VMWR 13 and 14 are drinking nicely. Time to be sampling the 2014 Sancerre's too. A very good vintage, apparently.

It's been a while since I've had the Clifford Bay but yes, they are two very different wines. In terms of quality I think Clifford Bay has the edge but the Wairau is more my style. Sadly, the Wairau 2014 in store at Asda is £13.97.

Off to hide behind the sofa.....

Sure Wales will be fine. Fiji are without Nadolo and Matawalu

The 2014 wairau reserve is still on Asda online for £10 and it was labelled the same in my local the other night so you should insist on a price match if it still rings up as £14 in your store
The Clifford bay is available in some large branches of Sainsburys. Mine has 2013 currently in the shelf

Missing the bonus point could prove costly. All hinges on tomorrow's game

Yep Mr G, you measured their potential form for sure.
We were sliced through (easily) 3 times. Our scrum weakening and then their 5 penalties scores as a result. We tried hard, but Australia were supreme and their superb three quarters were a joy to watch. Their very fast postion recovery to defend when not in possession, was a master class this evening.

I nearly pushed the back out of my armchair at 13 to 20. But to no avail. :cry:

I wish Wales the best of good fortune.
