Damn those boys in the Canary yellow shirts look good, really good. Going through top of the pool Wales would be likely to meet Japan or Scotland...! Go through second and we meet a refuvinated Bok side.

I'd wait and see on the injuries. But it's looking as if we'll have a back line of fly-halves the way it's going.

Thats not an answer…who would you start at wing, centre and fb?

How is it not an answer? Williams and Roberts went off injured so waiting to see on their fitness would be the LOGICAL thing to do. I can tell you who I wouldn't pick though; Cuthbert and your boy Hook.

He' not my boy, he is a much better option than Cuthbert

Assuming everyone in the squad is fit WHO WOULD YOU FECKING PICK?

Webb, Biggar, North, Roberts, Williams, L,Williams, Halfpenny. Very Happy

For the sake of argument, d'you reckon the aforementioned would've managed to score today against 13 man Australia?
I'm not convinced.

As I have said before, that was a great game for the neutrals.
Oz's scrum was outstanding compared to previous years BUT how many times did the Welsh TH end up air-borne? Either the Oz LH was boring in illegally and dangerously or someone needs to re-write the laws of physics. Now I know there is less of an emphasis on scrummaging in the SH but this was happening right under the ref's nose.

I'd say so. They would have been more confident putting it through the hands. Not sure if we'd have won though.

All were pros on the field today so should be confident in their ability to pass a ball. For me, that 13 man period says more about Wales ie our backline, rather than the Ozzie defence.

To me, they seemed a little reluctant to pass it to Cuthbert. I'm still wondering how they didn't score against 13 men! Australia will surely be in the final now, and are a good bet to win it. They've already beaten the ABs, they can do it again, in the final Wink.

Not sure what I just witnessed here. One of the great defensive displays or one of the most naive uses of a 2 man advantage in recent times.

Oz deserved winners in the end, but for the 3rd half of rugby in a row against decent opposition never really looked like scoring a try (discounting last weeks after time score v 14 men).
Not discounting Oz from winning the whole thing, but still far from convincing. As for Wales, think they have a decent chance against the Boks.

As well as he has played this rwc, the welsh 9 is falling in to the trap of believing his own press. This is a TEAM game. cost one try, possibly two. Also the welsh guy at 15 came through the line far too many times when a pass outside was on. The 12 had a word with him after he had butchered two kicks to nothing. Poor play. The captain should have chanced a thirteen man lineout when the aussies were down to 13, its worked a number of times .

Thought Anscombe was okay. Solid enough, if nothing particularly special.

Thought Jarvis coming on was the real turning point in the scrum (Owens came on at the same time too, but more likely to be Jarvis). Went from being a Aus advantage to an Aus massacre.

There's nothing to be fearful of from SA next week though, we know what they will bring and we can beat them. It'll be bloody tough, but our WC isn't over yet. Keep dreaming!

Completely right, I didn't;'t think we would win today, or indeed that Gatland had committed himself to winning, next week we will hammer the Bojks and then for the first time in six decades ............................................................................

When the ball went wide we looked clueless. Today highlighted the fact that our back play isn't that great and it's been this way for ages.

Think Wales have a decent chance. Australia have had the hoodoo over Wales for a hell of a long time - not so the Saffers.
Your defence is up to it. Need to find some attack (maybe North on the wing!) Good luck.

Listened to this on the radio as was driving home form Leicester's game. Thus I have had to rely on the picture painted by the commentators.

When Mumm was binned and Australia down to 13 men I was screaming at the radio (and almost done by a speed camera) for Wales to kick a penalty then come right back at their depleted opponents. From the commentary it seemed that whilst the aussie defence was heroic, that Wales decision making was perhaps brainless and skills lacking with some white line fever. also sounded like Joubert may have bottled a few calls - there were a handful morer penalties from Aussies in that period it sounded like.

So:

1) Was Wales decision making as bad as it sounded like?
2) Should Joubert have binned a 3rd aussie or maybe award a PT?


Commiserations on what must have been a gutting losss, and good luck in the 1/4 final

Yes, Joubert should have been binned. Wink

Wales had ample opportunity without the ref to get across the line and, yes, some of the decision making represented a touch of white line fever which the kind of emotional explosion within the Welsh team can bring about. Australia deserved their win and were magnificent in defence.

I think there was a try on offer, so it's not clear cut for me that Wales should have gone for three. That missed Dan Biggar penalty proved significant because it meant a six point gap rather than three points, which might have changed Warburton's thinking.

I do think Joubert let two scrums disintegrate without finding fault, when it seemed likely Australia offended. Having said that, Wales had Australia on the run in one scrum but either lost control, or the scrum half tried to go alone, when it seemed harder not to score.

At some point, Warburton might have shown more awareness about how the clock was running down. When you have a two man advantage, you don't want to waste it on scrum resets. Still, the All Blacks famously wasted their chance against thirteen man England in 2003, so Wales are in very good company. And they are still in the tournament, which counts for a good deal.

Tbf on the ABS the mistake was Soialo running it when England infringed again. The ref was getting peed off with us and may have given a penalty try

Why didn't Wales take 3 points against Australia when 15 vs 13 to make the score 12-9 and then get the ball back and go again? I understand they wanted to get a try and possibly go 13-12 up but surely they should get some points first and protect themselves against Australia scoring another penalty.

Just back from the gamem and I cant accept we were against 13 men, and we we seemed to start against 18 men as the Ref, 2x linesmen and TMO seemed to know before the KO which side would get the decisions.... I have NEVER in my life blamed the officials, but I cannot believe how many decisions went Aus way... SH ref, SH started with 10 points advantage.... What a f***ing carve up.... furious

Think Nigel Owens would have been less biased....

You got very lucky with the decisions and still lost. Aus should have put 20-30 on you. Wales have no attack, just defense. SA will destroy you Smile

But Aus didn't put 20 on Wales. They put over 30 on England though, and ended up beating them by 20 points.

Just a wum he knew the answer.

who would you start on the wings and at centre?

I'd wait and see on the injuries. But it's looking as if we'll have a back line of fly-halves the way it's going.

Thats not an answer…who would you start at wing, centre and fb?

How is it not an answer? Williams and Roberts went off injured so waiting to see on their fitness would be the LOGICAL thing to do. I can tell you who I wouldn't pick though; Cuthbert and your boy Hook.

thumbsup

He' not my boy, he is a much better option than Cuthbert

Assuming everyone in the squad is fit WHO WOULD YOU FECKING PICK?

Webb, Biggar, North, Roberts, Williams, L,Williams, Halfpenny. Very Happy

why can't you answer a simple question sensibly

the only injury doubt is Sanjay who IMO is a 15 and plays much better there, has a better kicking game and is better under the high ball

Therefore i would play him there if fit, with Morgan at 13 and North back on the wing

Hook is not by any stretch an ideal pick but right now id pick anyone over Cuthbert who IMO is close to a meltdown and does not belong on an international rugby pitch

Bit rich when you come out with crass statements. You said assuming the squad was fit, so I answered your question. Maybe you need to take a look at the world cup squad when it had been finalised.

For next game however, I would agree with your proposed changes. I don't mind seeing North and Tyler interchanging as I think the former makes a good centre partnership with Roberts.

I wouldn't pick Hook or Cuthbert and I've made my stance on that clear for quite some time. That would leave us little alternative than to have Matthew Morgan on the wing. I would have Lloyd Williams covering wing before Cuthbert on current form... Need to pray that Williams and Roberts are okay to play.

Who is even left to come in if Liam Williams and Roberts are ruled out? Aled Brew? Beck? Harry Robinson?

That was done to jolly old England. Who do they play next? Destroyed or not Wales have done better in the World Cup than you lot again. England had nothing but a fairly decent 3rd tier country with some potential.

Welsh-Wizard.

I grant you that Wales have done better than England is this World cup...But i find it hard to except that Wales could not/did not score a try when Australia was down to thirteen men.

I thought they would of taken at least 3 points and get a second chance of a try after the kick off.

But they did not do that and Australia held on for the win. Good luck against SA,

well thankfully it wasn't the 41-9 drubbing I was expecting. The scrum, while creaking at times, was far more stable.

Our basic ball skills in and out of contact are woeful.

Cardiff Dave wrote:All were pros on the field today so should be confident in their ability to pass a ball. For me, that 13 man period says more about Wales ie our backline, rather than the Ozzie defence.

So true.  The defence was strong but should never have been given that opportunity.  Roberts and North in the centre couldn't find space in the middle of the sahara.  That Welsh backline was devoid of any creativity.  Gatland continuing to pick Cuthbert is bordering on sadistic - surely every decent rugby fan wants to see his torture end.

Add to that some shocking leadership decisions and we have the biggest missed world cup opportunity I've seen.
