England scored 14 points while Wales were a man down, and won by 13. Wales left their best long range kicker on the bench till the last few minutes while Hook (2) and Jones (1) missed kicks he'd have taken.

Sounds like a birthday present to me.

Hi Villan

I saw the hights of the Spurs v Villa game. They hung on well for a draw.

So it's now gloves off for Tuesday.

Villa beat us early this year at Old Trafford.....not many teams do that !!

I remember it well not just for the defeat but that night we went out for a Xmas meal with some friends, one of who is a Villa supporter. So from the moment the taxi picked us up ( he was in it ) until it dropped
us off at night I had to suffer my leg being pulled.

Villa v United games are always exciting as both teams play entertaining football. Looking forward to Tuesday.

Cheers

We can help it if Wales were useless. We can only beat whatever they put out to play us.

You forgot to mention that England's third try was an interception from a stupid pass by Stephen Jones.

Oh and by the way England scored 17 points while Jones was in the sin bin.

England will have no illusions about this game they were the better of two poor sides on the day.

Sorry, it was 17 points, so that makes England XV 13 Wales XV 17!

Gatland should have replaced Cooper a lot earlier than 68 minutes - rather than one movement, he was picking the ball up, standing up, looking round and then deciding what to do!

Wasn't the Ireland/Italy game pedestrian? It really did become 'capuccino time' at the ruck.... England/Wales match was much more energetic, but nowhere near as frenetic as the France/Scotland game... although I miss the great long-haired French giant who ran down the length of the pitch like it was a hairspray advert.... I always hear the 'Black Beauty' theme in my head when I see him.

They were shown on BBC1 here, you may be able to pick them up on BBCiPlayer if you can get it. If it helps Gnu, it was the most energetic game of the three so far, and looked the most evenly matched - even if France did hold territory for over 2/3rd of the game.... Scotland fought hard and well, they were just unlucky.

Hi

That galloping frenchman was Sebastien Chaval.

Until this season he played for my local rugby club. Sale Sharks.

I watch them occasionally. I used to play for Sale many moons ago. But strangely enough I prefer watching football ( soccer).

I watch them when I can't get to see Manchester United. I have a season ticket at Old Trafford and go to as many away games as time and business allow.

Sebastien has returned to France and Sale have lost other players too since the credit crunch. So they are struggling a bit this season.

Matthew Tait and Mark Cueto played for England on Saturday. So Sale are still represented at the highest level.

Looks like I will have to watch the Villa Man U match on the PC. Somebody will be televising it somewhere in the world. Good old Livefooty :-) Once watched a match of the Villa's through them and it was in Dutch. I was delighted as I understand spoken Dutch very well, so I could understand and I thought the commentary was much better.

Anyway I hope we don't give you any presents at all :-)

A bit of a disappointing game really - even though England won. I found myself showing my age and shouting at the TV! Too much slow ball at the breakdown again, although this has improved greatly from last year.
I also think that the BBC need to sort out the camera work for next time. The constant views from the revered "Spidercam" and the rapid camera movements made me feel quite sick!I like to see the view from behind the posts as the ball is kicked, or at leasat from close behind the player, but there were many long distance views which made it difficult to see the ball clearly. Thoughts anyone?

I have been right past Villa park today. Our recently born grandson is in the Birmingham Children's Hospital and has been since January 6th.

He has been very poorly but things are looking up. Can't speak more highly of Birminghan Hospital and it's dedicated staff.

hi paula

I agree with you about the camera work and indeed the general presentation. There is far too much concentration of "gimmics" and showcasing supposed technical advancements that it interferes with the TV viewers flow of the game.

At least they haven't yet got to having background music played under/over the commentary !!!

With regard to the game I thought England played better than of late and although they scored the points due to Jones being sin-binned, I felt they had looked superior before that point. The worry was as soon as they got a good lead they went on the defensive and nearly threw it away.

Nothing here for either team to be complacent about but I will take a win against Wales any time.

Oh, that spidercam.... it did for my vertigo, I had to look away most of the time when they were using it, I got quite sick at one point! Could explain the weird dreams I had that night, I kept dreaming I was falling over and over... bleurgh!

Chaval, thank you... never was good at names. Although I notice his 'hairspray ad' postition may well have been taken over by the big nonce who was injured in the first 30 seconds and was subbed after less than 5 minutes - he was very pretty!

And I'm not the only one noticing hair - during the England match, someone (?Low) was subbed and the commentator remarked that the amount of hair on the pitch had increased dramatically as this rather elegantly coiffeured brick outhouse walked out!

Hi Mike,
will be interesting to watch the development of the team. I don't think it is by any means the finished product,but that could be said about any team.
I hope Johnson is given a chance to build a good squad, like Woodward was. On one hand he is slated when he uses old hands, ("Not building for the future "),then he is slated if forced to use young players and the team don't play well.Many people want the young players to be "blooded" but they won't take the inevitable losses while they learn the game in a tough arena.Too many pundits feel they should use their power to attempt to influence team selection and even the hiring and firing of coaches.
Who'd want his job?

On a more serious note, I hope your Grandson is OK.

Gnu:

The reason you can't get the Six Nations on TV is because of the swine at Setanta, none of whom will go to heaven when they die. They buy up the rights to the games in North America and then sell it only to pubs who are willing to fork over the fantastic prices they charge for Pay per View. I know of only one pub in eastern Ontario that's willing to do that - the Heart and Crown in the Byward Market, where I will be this weekend with a bunch of other suckers, desperate for their Rugby fix.

I have it on good authority that the CEO of Setanta eats deep fried kittens for breakfast.

As for the game it was a case of could have, should have and didn't for Wales.

Many thanks for the kind comments regarding my grandson Samuel.

I am pleased to report that after several weeks recuperating after a heart operation he is recovering as well as can be expected.

He is now out of Intensive Care and in an intensive ward for two babies.
The prognosis is good and the first step is to get him feeding properly because for the last few weeks he has been fed through a tube.

Thanks for the concern

Hi Paula

My you seem well up on your rugby...!!!

I agree with what you say - Martin Johnson can't do the right thing - whatever he tries he gets damned for it.

We had a promising start against a hapless Wales and I hope that it is something we can build on. We have to try to get back to playing 15 man rugby and not 10 man with the backs just looking on.

Too much depends on Jonny Wilkinson - injury prone though he is he is still the best matchwinner in the World.

I watched to whole of the France v Scotland they played some fantastic rugby and looked very ominous for the rest of the Six nations and then for some strange ( Gallic ) reason managed to make almost look like hard work.

I agree with your comment about blooding new young players. The secret is to do it slowly and not try to introduce too many too soon.

Many thanks for your concern and comment about our grandson Samuel.

You will see from my earlier message to Les that things are improving.

You don't have to tell me about Villa....I have always respected them and their abilty to entertain while playing open attacking football ( forget Wenger's comments ).

If both teams play the way they can it is going to be a great game to watch.

I know that Villa are on the up....but United too are gathering up a head of steam after ( for them ) a fairly ordinary start to the season.

It's the sight of that honed torso, rippling thigh muscles, mane wafting in the breeze, head held high and nostrils flaring with the sheer joy of running, the exhiliration of being alive....    It just needs that music (Galloping Home, recorded by the Simon Park Orchestra IFRC) to make it complete.

The horse is just a horse. Never have liked the beasts.

Hi MikeL2,

I agree about Wilkinson. I can't yet see anyone pushing too hard for his place. A bit of a problem for a few years time, but he's still there at the moment so we can be thankful for that at least.You never know who might suddenly step forward.

We still have a bit if a problem with slow ball from the breakdown, I think.The forwards are quickly getting the ball to the back foot in the rucks, but, too often on Saturday, the scrum half stood there pointing at so-called infringements or he waited while the opposition marked their guys ....meaning that our midfield often took the ball standing still. No momentum.Ho hum....Never happy eh?

I suppose I'm still allowed to post here seeing we're playing Wales.

I'll be back behind the sofa on Saturday - Dan Parks starting at No 10! I suppose he'll not play too badly if we're being thrashed, but if it's close he'll find a way to lose it. He's our answer to Arwel Thomas who couldn't raise his game to international level, but in recent seasons has been a regular "Seren y gem" for Neath.

Parks couldn't do much worse than Godman did. Maybe Wyn-Jones will trip him and we'll get 3 tries from Lamont and Cussiter :)

Don't know why we can't commit to having Patterson at 10 and a choice of full-back.

Godman doesn't make a habit of having kicks charged down on his goal line in close games. Sean Lineen was saying that people should get off Parks' back because his confidence is fragile, but that's the problem. Watch Stephen Jones, Jonny Wilkinson or any top international stand-off, and yes, they'll make mistakes, but they'll pick themselves up and produce something to compensate. Once Parks makes his first mistake he's gone for the rest of the game. Having said that, he has had 2 decent games in a Scotland jersey (out of 47).

As for Patterson, he hasn't been playing stand-off most of the time, so even if we comitted to him (which we should have done 99 caps ago) it's going to be several games before he's got a chance of being the second coming of Rutherford.

Robinson should probably be fast-tracking Glasgow's Ruairidh Jackson for next season anyway.

hi Paula

You are right about the slow ball. It looked to me as if it was a deliberate ploy.

Over the years England has had a policy of "crash-ball centres".
This entails that the ball is not whipped out quickly to the wings through the centres. This tactic suposes that they have very hard strong running centres and a speedy back row.

At the moment we seem to have a slow but big back row with centres that like to run and make breaks.....we are in the middle of a change but we just haven't got the players in the right positions at the rightmoments.

A little bit like Eric Morcambe in his reply to Andre Previn who told him he was playing all the wrong notes. Morcambe's reply was " I am playing all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order".

Regards

Mike

Hi Mike,

I see that Flutey is back as inside centre for the next match. It will be interesting to see how that changes the dynamics. We will have two fast centres , and Flutey is not afraid to get physical, even though he's not the biggest guy in the game.I was concerned about defence during the last match, as I've yet to be convinced that Tait is one to be "feared". (I hope he proves me wrong here).Flutey is usually good at spotting the danger areas and is not afraid to boss when unhappy with things.A bit of experience goes a long way!

Looking forward to a good game!

Paula

I see the offending thread title is still with us.

Goatfell, if you read the previous entries you'd see that I was making the same point as you were, and Real Madrid is only there because of the fish.

England to win all their matches.

Villa is a side track as the thread was rather slow, and as I started the thread :-)

Do I detect a bit of unhappiness as Wales and Scotland lost :-)

Dave
I asked Joe to change the title to Rugby Union 2010

Joe didn't do that, but in the USA they do not understand the importance.

So if it is Ok with everybody, I will start a new thread.

Yes I will, oh no you won't, oh yes I will
