    England: 15 Mike Brown, 14 Anthony Watson, 13 Jonathan Joseph, 12 Owen Farrell, 11 Jonny May, 10 George Ford, 9 Danny Care; 1 Make Vunipola, 2 Dylan Hartley, 3 Dan Cole, 4 Joe Launchbury, 5 Maro Itoje, 6 Courtney Lawes, 7 Chris Robshaw, 8 Sam Simmonds.

    Replacements: 16 Jamie George, 17 Alec Hepburn, 18 Harry Williams, 19 George Kruis, 20 Sam Underhill, 21 Richard Wigglesworth, 22 Ben Te'o, 23 Jack Nowell.

    Wales: 15 Liam Williams?, 14 Josh Adams, 13 Scott Williams, 12 Hadleigh Parkes, 11 Steff Evans, 10 Rhys Patchell, 9 Gareth Davies; 1 Rob Evans, 2 Ken Owens, 3 Samson Lee, 4 Cory Hill, 5 Alun Wyn Jones (c), 6 Aaron Shingler, 7 Josh Navidi, 8 Ross Moriarty.

    Replacements: 16 Elliot Dee, 17 Wyn Jones, 18 Tomas Francis, 19 Bradley Davies, 20 Justin Tipuric, 21 Aled Davies, 22 Gareth Anscombe, 23 George North.

    England are in Twickenham where they have won their last 18 games. In the last meeting of Eng vs Wales England won 21-16.

    After last weeks trouncing of Scotland, this looks likely to be a close match with not more than a score in it.

    The last minute withdrawal of Leigh Halpenny means kicking duties for Wales will pass to Rhys Patchell.

    Prediction: England by 3

    I would lol if this game was a draw later on just to see their faces. :D

    Land of our Fathers sounds like a middle-ranking christmas carol. Silent Night it is not.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,933 ✭✭✭joseywhales

    Ah I don't know why gatland gets so much flack, he's reasonable enough.

    Jones is just a wind up artist.

    Dylan Hartley tackling with his face there.
    "More of that please", says you.

    The HIA will confirm, in fact, he has no brain.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,196 ✭✭✭dublinman1990

    Hartley is off already with a HIA. Talk about fast.

    Hartley is off already with a HIA. Talk about fast.

    He looked quite dopey

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,299 ✭✭✭F34

    That feed to the scrum was a disgrace

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt

    THAT is why May gets picked. Rockets in his boots.

    Wow. What a kick though

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,580 ✭✭✭✭Burkie1203

    Awful from wales

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,590 ✭✭✭CurryFlavoured

    Super clinical from England.

  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 34,447 Mod ✭✭✭✭pickarooney

    Lucky or perfectly weighted, that kick was sublime.

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,597 ✭✭✭✭Venjur

    That is absolutely brilliant. Terrific decision to kick through, fantastic.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,196 ✭✭✭dublinman1990

    Farrell missed his kick. Playing in the rain would not be easy for this match.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,138 ✭✭✭mangobob

    Ruthless from England.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,422 ✭✭✭kuang1

    Terrible error from Wales.

    Not as terrible as realising that Conor macnaFookinmara is tv3's commentator tho.

    Fook it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,355 ✭✭✭✭Professor Moriarty

    Exactly what Wales didn't need. England could cut loose if Wales lose focus.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,422 ✭✭✭kuang1

    Jesus h fookin christ...Shane Byrne is almost as bad as MacNamara...
    "It's been all England so far...Wales haven't got a look in"....
    Did he watch the first 2 minutes of the game?
    Horrendous punditry.

    Can anyone confirm if AWJ and Itoje were roommates on the Lions Tour?

    Itoje was miles offside in the line speed there.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,590 ✭✭✭CurryFlavoured

    Damn, this is a real exceptional England side. The main difference between us and England is the creativity they have running ball in hand.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,367 ✭✭✭eigrod

    England are going to get a bonus point here

  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 34,447 Mod ✭✭✭✭pickarooney

    Was that Patchell's brother in the stands?

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,590 ✭✭✭CurryFlavoured

    Hmm, hit his knee, but was there downward pressure from red? Tough one.

    Ah that’s very harsh on Wales.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,098 ✭✭✭✭Hurrache

    Looked a try to me.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,580 ✭✭✭✭Burkie1203

    Thats a terrible call
