    Game rusty and sloppy play has cost us first half. Let’s hope a half time bollocking gets them going second half.

    We showed glimpses of what we can do but overall we were sloppy for the best part of the game.

    At least we’re not burdened with the Number 1 ranking.....and quite rightly so.

    Let’s hope for a better performance in Cardiff next Saturday.

    Disappointed with the performance, rather than the result. Gifted them points, sloppy at times, scrum creaked. Some good spells of defence and scored a few tries and a kick up the arse isn't a bad thing to spur us on.

    Personally I'd never call any England side a scratch side considering the strength in depth they've got. All top players.

    Don’t disagree - but we were largely ‘fully loaded’...

    I dont care what anyone says this game between to of the biggest rivals should not have taken place with the WC so close and neither should Aus V NZ....The WC has to be on the mind of the top players that is bound to effect how they play as if they get injured it could mean not going to Japan and that is more important than these stupid games... We will see a much improved performance from NZ and Wales in Japan.

    Only by the scoreline <laugh> I don't think it was a thumping, we were poor and could have won that game on another day. Anyway... "you're only as good as your last game", so win the return game in Cardiff and that's the one that will be remembered most going into the World Cup.

    Just heard on the news that Anscombe is out of the RWC with an ACL injury picked up on Saturday.
    Could have guessed someone would get a bad one.

    Maybe Anscombes injury is bad for Wales, maybe it wont be, time will tell if either Bigger or Patchel will step up. lets wait and see.

    Taff certainly not good for the Ospreys.

    Yesterdays result meant nothing, what happens when the WC starts is what is important, Mind you I think on the radio again today, it meant England are now the best team in the world and a cert to win this WC, I have to switch off sometimes.

    Was a big signing to be fair and exactly what they had been missing for a while, do they know how long he is out.

    that isn't what you would want to go into a season with, yet alone what I still call the Heineken cup. will they bring someone in if it is a season long injury.

    They will be speaking to the PRB to see if they can secure ‘emergency’ funding to pay for a ‘decent’ 10.

    They will also get insurance for the injury.

    The other issue is, who is available?
