First topic message reminder :

Anyone know much about the ticket sales for this game?

I may head down for this, however just took a quick peak for tickets and there is only one block available, and not 2 tickets sat together. It can't be sold out already can it?

Anyone know?

Cipriani must be wondering what's going on!  

Ford looks like he has no confidence. Bath's dismal season coupled with his dad's sacking seems to have really knocked him. A couple of those missed kicks are howlers.

Agree with the TMO and Greenwood, Cole knocks the ball down and back.

Agree with that Sam - feel sorry for the lad but would love to have Cipriani on instead!

Maybe both teams have woken up a bit after the contraversial decision, however Biggar missing touch isn't the way to respond.

Doesn't matter about a knock on or not. Wales can't tackle and can't create. If they play like this in NZ they'll get thumped. Nothing new or inventive since the 6N's.

England are making so many mistakes but are far more potent in attack.

Surely Ford won't start at 10 against Aus?

Or is the problem that there's no real standout player at 12 for England?

Burrell has done well today

I'd agree with this, knock on or not for 5/6 phases Wales were losing ground over and over.

Welsh players just look like they have an eye on NZ, which will not help them in NZ.

Too many fallen off tackles again, 3 times losing the ball in contact, and no physical aspect from the Welsh...

Welsh players might be mentally in NZ but physically, despite thinking England would win by around 12 it may be 32 lol

Been keeping in touch via the BBC website. Last looked it was Wales 10-0 up. I thought - here we go.

Coming back to the game now lets just say I am pleasantly surprised...

I've had to turn it off because wales were annoying me so much. Poor skills and getting round the ref like that. I hope Biggar and alun wyn are banned for a game for that but they won't be. No room for that at all

But you know what will happen. That decision will be blamed assuming Wales lose from here and the fact that they seem to have been overrun for most of the game will be ignored

Don't worry, Wales Online will post a million articles about how Wales should have won if not for that obviously blatant cheating...

Come on, stop being childish, it was a decision thats contraversial, only seen by one camera angle, in which the player involved was convinced (as were the 29 others) it was knocked on into Biggar, they rowed for about 15 seconds, which we see every week by all teams.

Joseph has had a shocker, his inability to throw a pass is a real disappointment.

North won't want to watch back his open field break where he failed to step and run round the England replacement loosehead Genge. He really should be doing better than that.

Thought JJ has made some decent breaks though ... Ford is the big issue - he's missed 8 easy points from conversions that often would be the difference between winning and losing

It doesn't matter if the decision was controversial or not there is no place for behaving like that. Apart from anything Biggar lost it and Wales discipline went out the window.

Bizarre thinking going for the kick there.

No possession for the last 5 mins and then waste that penalty.

It's such a shame Welsh players have been so poor today, a few English players have really thrown their hands up in spectacular fashion, but those performances might be marred by the Wales perormance.

Ford has been unforgivable, Farrell must be sat in his front room wetting himself with laughter.

This is rugby. You do NOT see players surrounding and yelling at the referee every week. Biggar should see a citing for sure.

Not being childish. It's a serious comment. And its not about the guys on the pitch either. I haven't seen the incident so can't comment on it until I do. It is more about the Welsh media and the spin that will be put on this.

A second string England, unable to kick a point, making loads of mistakes and having given penalties away all afternoon, have made Wales look woeful. Can't wait to hear who Gatland blames for this one.
