I don't know, you could term it as a 'rugby incident'. I certainly took a few accidental knees to the head in my playing days. Doesn't show, right? Even so, no need for it.

Wells is a good nuggety club man I'm not expecting him to be brilliant at this level. Ewels however is supposed to be a senior squad man. Eddie maybe finding more problems than answers at lock over these friendlies.

There's not many wingers with basics as good as Radwan that also offer so much going forward. He's a really impressive young player.

What's going on on with our defence? That's the second time Canada have had a two on one on the outside. We've got to number up better than that.

And she’s in her first or second season commentating but already considerably less annoying and more knowledgeable than Lol or Jiffy.

I dunno about that reasoning, how many caps do say Austin Healy, Haskell or Dallaglio have?  I'm constantly telling the TV to shut up when they are on. Very Happy

The question related to who she was. I just pointed out she's a bit of a legend for England women which is why she's been given a commentating job. She did play for Wasps ladies so maybe she's been getting tips from Dayglo...

How can you listen to Waterman and Ashton and have an issue with the former? Wish they'd balance back and forward though.

The young Welsh ref has been doing a decent job today, impressed with him. Hopefully he's got a bright future ahead, gives me some hope when generally it seems the standard of refs is slipping.

That's what I meant by basics GF! He's so composed, strong in the tackle, in the air, uses his pace to cut down space on the drift and retreating. There's not much to dislike about Radwan, which is rare in wingers as most have some sort of weakness.

Being serious, they’re clearly set up to commentate for non rugby fans who might flick on to channel 4. It’s annoying, but I somewhat get it

Smith is controlling the game and making holes in the defence nicely… there was a try on there, but yet another penalty from one of the locks.

And apparently Smith has had a Lions call up.

Get him off the pitch! Would be awful to see him miss out due to what is an increasingly meaningless game.

The more you watch that dummy, the better it looks - Dombrandt had the defender completely turned and could have finished that.

Great run by Dombrandt then he throws the ball away, but makes up for it to feed Radwan
