Wales were the better team today, but the refereeing was inexplicable.
The referees in both games were poor.
I think When England attacked they pissed all over the Welsh Removed

Unfortunately for England that didn’t happen often enough. Same against Scotland too. Although...to be fair...they did manage to string a few attacks together against competitors closer to their standard.....Italy. Ha Ha Ha. Get a grip....”I think....:)

The trouble is we didn’t really attack much. You don’t win games if you don’t have the ball in hand. We have fantastic backs but they don’t get the opportunities to attack. We kick away the ball way too much.

England look very impressive executing training ground attack schemes and have clearly put in lots of time practicing them and developing the skills to execute them...BUT rugby isn’t just about executing set plays it’s about reacting to the opposition and maintaining discipline, two areas where England were sadly lacking.

tbh i thought England were actually pretty good today, bar the last 10 or so minutes. the common theme in this 6 Nations is that indiscipline will cost you matches- whether that be red cards, giving away too penalties or a combination of both.

on a different note that post match interviewer was terrible, she should be sacked. attempting to goad Farrell/Jones/AWJ in to criticising the ref.
11 years ago Martin Johnson could of killed her, she’s been winding people up for years Removed

What’s your point. Who won the game
To be fair to England, after two extremely disappointing refereeing decisions their concentration and anger would be sky high. Ever tried working to your best when it feels like everything is against you.

Yes, Wales won but it will be one of those wins that is brought up in the future when the reverse happens. To be blunt though, I blame that stupid French idiot!

Nothing wrong with either of the first half tried for wales. The first was not a quick penalty. Bigger played the ball after the ref called time on and blew the whistle and the second was not a knock on. For all those talking about l ist control that is not a relevant factor in the law. Best team one and all the moaning just seems like sour grapes and bad losing.

Farrell was ask to have a word with his team mate, not to give a speech! It was approximately 21 seconds from the time the ref ask the Eng. Captain to have a word to resuming the game. How long does it take for someone to say "come on lads, keep focused, and stop given silly penalties away!
and for the water carriers to leave the pitch too? don't be daft, the team has to assemble and get back into position, that would be the 21 seconds without saying a word. Idiot. Removed

Not happy at all with the questions by Sonia after the game. Clearly looking for a soundbite and rightfully all were answered professionally. She should be a professional too.
That’s what you get when you put a woman in a position of which she has no knowledge or authority. The responses she got were what she deserved.

What tends to get forgotten when offering jobs to satisfy the equality agenda is that the important part of the word is "quality". Makes no difference what the gender is if the individual demonstrates quality of performance. Jobs on merit not gender are fine unfortunately, hers is a gender driven appointment as there is no quality in evidence. Removed

I’d ask you politely to keep this kind of comment out of here. We don’t know why BBC appoints it’s staff, but it’s somewhat rude of you to speak like this and I’m not sure what you think it achieves. I watched the game on NBC and thought the all male commentary team was poor, but ultimately it’s not an easy job and people try their best. Maybe we can just be happy we have sport to watch!

The articles are clearly written by England fans. So biased. The commentators were worse than the referee and offered no sense of balance whatsoever. The 2nd try was 50-50 and the first was contentious. Who told England they could have a tea break? Wake up and watch the play! Good opprtunism by Biggar. I doubt there'd be the same level of furore on the BiasedBC if Farrell had tried that!
