Am I the only one who could see a giant black hand underneath the ball during the Ireland try????

And as for the disallowed England try...what a load of tosh..

Happy to say completely wrong.  If Curry cuts out the indiscipline he could be the class 7 we need.

Fantastic performance, credit to Mitchell for improving the defence beyond recognition.

Yep!,
Curry was superb, Eng defence was very good & always looked dangerous in attack. Slade has secured his place, May was excellent, Daly isn’t a full back, Nowell can play where he likes, this is a significant win ...... I’ve had several beers & am very happy

Agree with all of that.... Daly poor...
Youngs outstanding.

D was frightening good.

20 points flattered Ireland.

How was Daly poor out of interest? Don't recall what he did that was wrong. He didn't see much of the ball or have to make many tackles.

Daly has vision going forward, which showed yesterday.
Ok he has to work on high ball receipt but look at the option....Mike Brown? He tucks the ball in one hand and takes contact all the time.

You know the All Blacks are worried when they start moaning about northern hemisphere rugby being boring....

Ye Old No 9 - Ye of little faith, any comments?
Not sure you could say Daly was poor just didn't see much of the ball and didn't see him make any big mistakes? Not sure of a better option and please don't anyone say Alex Goode Stephen Jones' (Sunday Times Rugby correspondent) love child!
For once i agree with BRB, i thought there was a big hand was under the ball when Healy supposedly scored; certainly Mako Vunipola's disallowed try was just as much try? In fact couldn't see what was wrong, as it hadn't been even grounded before he got to the line. Wasn't he immense in the scrum against Tadhg Furlong, supposedly up there as one of the worlds best tightheads?
Finally that grouse about Jonnie Wilkinson, he may not be the most charismatic but at least he has done it and does talk sense; unlike that boring fart Barnes on sky, who still whinges that Rob Andrew kept him out of the England side!

I think the fact that they mention tuilagi was born in Samoa and then say they won't mention it like we do about them says it all really.

FS no mate, got it wrong, but money still on Wales. John Mitchell seems to have sorted out the defence. A little more flair wouldn't go a miss.
