Wales eye Grand Slam after Italy rout
13/03/2021 | sport | rugbyunion | 1,391
Wales score seven tries against Italy in Rome to set up a Grand Slam chance against France in Paris next weekend.
The only annoying thing about that game was the high pitched squeaky voice of that woman commentator. Well done Wales Removed

It must be very difficult for teams with no attacking threat and poor discipline to watch Wales play with such composure and attacking threat all over the pitch. Well played both Wales and Italy. The big game of the 6N for Wales is next week. All hail Scott Quinnell pundit who knows his stuff when it comes to predictions.
Wales played well. Pity some of you Welsh supporters don’t have the same class. Removed

I like marrow, especially stuffed like the Wales, England match.
Joy Neville TMO gifts England's Itoje a try he clearly did not ground at Twickenham. Gifted Hill a try that was clearly a double movement against Italy. Biased officiating to England once again.

In Ireland we know how bad an official she is

I find the back play ponderous at best. I fail to see much creativity from deep as an unit. Sure, an individual can make a clean break but as for coordinated plays, no. Yet again, there was proof that Jon Davies is rubbish passing to the left. The other way, no issue.

An interesting disparity with the video reviews. Both Itoji's and Adam's tries decided by video ref when there was no clear evidence in either. Itoji's was deemed held up by the ref,p overturned by the video ref, Adams' deemed a try by the ref and overturned by the video ref. Inconsistent use of video. Where Video cannot clearly spot a ref error, the ref's decision should stand imo. Removed

If Wales beat France it will be the worst GS ever, only marginally beat Ireland and Scotland because of sending offs, only England because of the worst ref performance ever, easy win against Italy and England puncture French bubble, only winners are SA as lions team will be mostly welsh now and they won't have biased ref to rely on.

This is why the rest of the world has such an issue with Welsh fans.

One week they complain loudly about a try being given by the TMO, when the onfield decision is against it, but the review clearly shows it was grounded, in a game their side isn't involved in. The previous week when they're given 2 tries that afterwards the ref himself says is wrong its "we have to back the refs decision"

As an Englishman I congratulate Wales on their win over Italy. They managed to play outside their comfort zone - normally they have to have a one man advantage - a privilege denied them by the Italians.
Flippancy aside, it will be a good challenge for them next week against the French who are looking very dangerous. Should be a belter - may the best team win!
