Managed that very well. Wales struggling to play a bit, I think England might have enough to put them away in the second half.

FFS. Same mistakes over and over.

Wales' bench will cost them, I fear. Good half, but I still can't see a Welsh win.

So they showed the law which just says 'approach" - where the definition saying any move in any direction?

approach = come near or nearer to (someone or something) in distance or time.

Stepping sideways and standing still is not an approach for me ...

IFW won't make a difference unless he's given the ball in some space. Freeman hasn't had any passes that I can recall. Daly has done OK with what he's had.

Energy really dropped after that epic defensive set

Will look later but I looked it up a few years ago and honestly what I said was correct.

Come back to that Daly chance and just think he's not a winger really did anyone think yup it's finished...whereas if a Radwan had that you'd think perhaps otherwise?

Yes, he could be a game-changer but our bench isn’t amazing either.

I don’t think Assirati as decent a player as he is, is suitable for this level. We could do with changing our TH at least now that England have a fresh front row.

Think the crowd are getting at the ref....which is good for Borthwick.

Our lineout is much better than I’ve seen it in a while. I suppose it will get steadily worse with Elias on.

Feels a weird game. England have created sod all really but there's less than a converted try.

So now picking the ball up in an offside position isn't a pen either? Can we sub the ref?

70 minutes gone this attack is awful. If Borthwick stays he needs to axe Wigglesworth ASAP.

Really? Can sometimes be pure luck. Could be a bounce of a ball. This performance is dog doo.
