I dont think Wales can take too much from that game even with the win. They defended well but weren't creative and often looked witless off anything but first phase ball. Barely looked like scoring. They beat an uncharacteristically poor Aus side. I dont think I have ever seen Aussie backs, usually the world's best, look quite so impotent out wide. Wales never - rarely -put teams away; it is always a pillow biter until the last whistle. I suppose you could argue that they are hard to score against and also are learning that the W is all that counts while building depth in the squad with the likes of Faletau not even playing, but it all smacks of scraping by as opposed to really challenging for top honors. Ireland and NZ would still make mincemeat of them.

That is not 100% true. Most charge downs in games I watch, the player spreads themselves very wide. (See Lawes yesterday). You have to be very close to aim at the feet.

Know more than Sam Warburton now do you? Rolling Eyes
Sam knows more about what he does, and how he has been coached. Thus I did not say he was wrong.

However I firmly believe I have seen more charge downs than he has, thus I feel safe to say he is not 100% correct.

Now as to this incident, on first viewing I thought red card, and if I had been in the crowd I too would have been furious. However having listened to the ref, it sounded like they have been given instructions such that accidental contact is treated differently. Therefore it comes down to whether he deliberately played the man, red card, it was reckless, YC, or an unfortunate accident, no sanction. Any decision that is subjective will cause disagreements.

I know we won, I know it's a relief, and I am gladly proven wrong.

But, we could have still been playing until today, and we still would not have scored a try. How Rob Howley is still in charge of the backs I do not know, we are so one dimensional, not once did I see a backs move, are wrap around, a scissors, inside lines, no players on the shoulders, come on.

This is the dullest Welsh side I have seen in ages.

Also, massive respect to Sean Edwards for what he has done with our defence, he seems to have tightened up all the weak links there.

Now please, against Tonga, NO MORE KICKING !!!!!!

There is a time for kicking, and a time for playing, give us fans something to get excited about, please....

I have to admit that I was only watching the game with half an eye as I was also cooking. However it felt that Australia were incompetent and Wales one-dimensional. A small improvement by either side could have seen them blowing the other away. Wales walk away with much more though as they needed the win and it is another monkey of the back.

Not on the specific game....more on that TMO trial.

I'm assuming the trial was operating through all weekend games - not just the Welsh v Australia one?  It seemed to be operating in the Ireland v Argentina game anyway...and already, if it was, I'm not sure about the pull-back on TMO involvement.

Granted there seemed to be a number of off-the-ball encounters between players, initiated by both side...but one particular hard hit from behind on Marmion without the ball.  Ref didn't seem to see it, nobody in TMO obviously said anything into his earpiece.... play on.  If the cameras can see, and a TMO can see then players have to be protected from the more obvious shots.

The late hit on Halfpenny should definitely have been looked at.

I don’t think that it helped that Halfpenny had the yips. If we had opened up a bit more of a lead, maybe we might’ve gone for it or opened up a bit. As it was they were clearly content they had enough this week anyway with their defence. He also knew they had enough on the bench to not lose anything from the arm wrestle.

It's now been confirmed that Leigh Halfpenny suffered concussion after the late challenge on Saturday.

Which begs the question why was the reckless challenge not even looked at? SH refs are atrocious and this was one of a few favours that kiwi did for the aussies on Saturday. Disgusting.

Both teams have got away with potential citings really, as AWJ should’ve been looked at for his forearm to the head.

ah....I see so twice not succeeding in a tactic that is basically a last resort - we cant penetrate the back line so we're going over it - is progress? You're attack is as impotent as Wales Laugh

Not in my time zone. Wish all you trolls would get stuffed, all you do is ruin Wales threads. Concentrate on your Fifth Place Finishers instead.

3:30pm, 2:00pm finish on Friday; 7 hour difference between here and UK so with that hopefully you can do the math. Why do you ask?
