    We're up & running in Cardiff. I expect this to be a great contest.

    Wonder if england will get a red card in this match now too keep the welsh streak going

    Great seeing Itoje get penalised but the English offline is continuously offside, every single time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,491 ✭✭✭ almostover


    Itoje with 2 penalties already. How he avoids yellow cards is beyond me. Great player but a penalty machine.

    Wales 3 England 0

    really thought England had been poor so far and wales well I guess they are hoping for a red card.
    england gifted wales 3 points there

    That was a close call from LW.

    Itoje some athlete all the same.

    bit more physical than the last game!

    Was going to ask why Eddie Jones was singing GSTQ but remembered Australia is a commonwealth country

    Its scary to think George North is only 28. Have a feeling this could be a draw

    3 penalties after 13 minutes, if it was a drinking game you'd be p*ssed by HT

    Three pens against Itoje already, surely should get a warning.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,564 ✭✭✭ RugbyLover123


    Surely there should be a law brought in about 1 players committing a certain amount of penalties regardless of what they are is a yellow? 3 against Itoje now inside 14 mins.

    Josh adams is on the board for Wales.

    you love to see it

    Great heads up stuff - regardless of the questionable refereeing decision


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,221 ✭✭✭✭ Larbre34


    Forget Farrell. If that happened against Ireland we'd be tearing down the wallpaper.

    Not a sporting situation I would say.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,716 ✭✭✭✭ Interested Observer


    Not sure about that tbh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,355 ✭✭✭✭ Podge_irl


    That is poor form from the ref.

    I' m not a massive Farrell fan, but he had a point there...


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,318 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Not sure about that tbh.

    The penalty itself was very very soft.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,261 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Itoje is playing similar to 2018 where England had their mini meltdown. He plays on the bleeding edge of legality and if he's the slightest bit off his game he concedes truck loads of penalties.

    Wales having a lucky campaign so far


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,564 ✭✭✭ RugbyLover123


    England or not that is very poor from the ref


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,061 ✭✭✭ KH25


    That’s baffling from the ref.

    We did something like that against South Africa once iirc.

    It was, but how is it that these decisions always, always, always, always seem to go in Wales' direction down the years?

    It's clearly not some magical bias and likely is just smarts and knowing how to play the ref, but going in to any game you're almost guaranteed to see Wales benefit from refereeing calls far more than their opposition.

    Terrible from the referee. Fair enough he says time on, but he has to allow England time to reset.

    Absolute nonsesne
