I had never seen England play at Twickenham until this season and I have managed to get to the three home games this year.

England although not playing good rugby have just been keeping their heads above water and coming up with the wins.

Sadly I think the next game will be one too far for us. and although I now have a ticket for the Wales game I really believe our luck will run out big style.

However this has been a great season for England building up for the 2015 RWC, and the team/squad have surprise a lot of so called experts who did not give the new young England a cat in hells chance of doing anything this season.

So when the final whistle goes next Saturday win or loose I will be celebrating big style in Cardiff.

Dave

Hi Dave,

Lucky you!

I still think England will win next Saturday played badly on Sunday against Italy but Italy if nothing else are good spoilers. Wales are on a rebuilding cycle as well.

The England pack are better than the Welsh pack the backs are on par, it will be a good game but England by at least 6 points.

Enjoy the day.

Cheers

Mac

Bulldog, I'am in awe of your luck to see so much top class rugby, good on you mate.
Is it just me or are the ref's far to pinnickaty at the rucks & mauls. Players will go over the top if the opposition have failed to get there, so why the volume of penalties. Got to admit its getting a wee bit boring sending international players of the pitch, it only spoils the game. Wayne Barnes is a typical example. In the Scotland game 20 mins and not so much as a bad look between players and he sin bins for a small infringment. Spoils the game, my views only chaps, do you have one.

Prediction Wales 13 England 27.

Lawrie
You could say the refs have been nitpicking around rucks and mauls but I think they are been a bit overcautious because of the amount of young player by all teams at this level this year.
All nations are rebuilding for the 2015 RWC and to be honest some of the rugby bed has been play has been dire, but a win is a win and that will do me.
I think the two teams on Sat are more or less equal but home advantage could be the 7 points for wales before the start o f the game.
We can win if Stewart Lancaster gets our tactics right and I hope he does.
I still however think Wales will beat us by 8+ points they need.
I have waited a long time to go and watch England at Twickenham so three times in six weeks as been great, so I am topping it of with my first visit to the Millennium Stadium PRAYING FOR A GRAND SLAM AND TRIPPLE CROWN.

WALES BY 10 POINTS

Hi Lawrie,

I agree with you; the Refs are spoiling the International game they say they want a free running game but with Penalties every few minutes thats never going to happen.

Scrums need to be looked at certainly but we do not want to go the Rugby League (hang on a sec whilst I just spit)way.

Health and Safety has got in the way again Refs are frightened of being cited if anything goes badly wrong and somebody gets injured. Plus they do not want the mass brawls they had a few years ago but that used to be part and parcel of the game and it sorted a game out more often than not. How many times did you give your opposite number a thump and after that you either get a thump back or he settled down to play rugby.

I must admit I have not been to a lower level game of rugby for a while but I should imagine it still goes on and I would wager there are less penalties.

England by at least 10 fingers and toes crossed!

Cheers

Mac

Crap result but expected.

The atmosphere in the stadium with the roof closed was unbelievable.


Ah well preparations for the 2015 RWC well underway.

Bring on the Army v Navy 27th April 2013

regards to all
