It is building up, we will be in Newport later so might duck into a pub watch the match.  

I Think Wales will win on home turf but it’s going g to. E a hotly contested game,..  and that’s from an Englishman who loves Spain more than his own country...  say what you want!

england to edge a very  close game due to  stronger forward replacements and  resiliance in last quarter...........wales won under 20s game last night  in 82min after england had late try overturned then gave a silly pen for wales to get position from where they scored a good try................

Never watched a game of posh rugby in my life. Typical old boys network plus coverage by the BBC for the establishment.  Rugby league is the proper code  in my opinion.but I hope Wales win .

Not sure the Welsh team would agree with the posh rugby bit.  Slightly anxious Englishmen as this is where we often come unstuck.    I may need a few beers to survive the afternoon!!!!

Like most team sports both Union and League suffer from the fact that the pitches were made for smaller/slower individuals, which has resulted in more rule changes than makes sense.  Hence rugby 7's is bonkers but far more fun to watch 90% of the time.

I guess my hatred for soccer/footie/overpaid falling down and rolling around or whatever it's called these days doesn't come across that well , have a great weekend ... :D

Quite partial to the simplified code that gets played up your way too by the way ... :)

Thought England did really well first half and would ease away in the second but a totally different side appeared in the second, full of indiscipline and loss of concentration.  Well done Wales.

Dead wrong ...

England did not turn up for the second half ... thought that they would run away with it given the strength of the bench and their fitness , but just didn’t seem to want it as much and got sucked into Wales’s way of playing .

As for the 5 past 2 . 

Flip Steve , I wish I had a crystal ball . Olie has turned it around for your lot , totally . Your a different team , which just shows you that those players where  both being played out of possition and not bothering to play for the Special One .

I just hope we turn up today and give it a real go . Lots of people saying we are starting to bottle it . I’m just happy we are in a position to be in contention with City as they are something else .

1-3 us . 

🙏

Getting rid of the not so special one was at least 2 seasons to late, he shouldn't have been there in the first place but hey ho. OGS has certainly turned it round.  Can only see a United win today even without Martial.  I would present city with the  premier league trophy myself if it stopped the mickies winning it. Couldn't think of anything worse.

Real big shout out to Englands women’s team though . 

Yet another convincing win with some amazing forward play and handling. 

Sarah Bern once again massive at Prop, but also has the pace and sidestep of an inside centre . What a player .

Does Brendan Rogers deserve the hard time... ?

Good question Mike , 

For me it’s more about the timing ... than him going . I’m sure a lot of Celtic fans will be left wondering why .. why now when so close to the treble treble .. why go to a club that will never ever have the fan base of Celtic .. 

The answer I think is I’m afraid to say , money and the prestige of the Premiership .. not really the attraction of Leicester as a club, sorry Leicester fans. Can he get them back into Europe ? Can he get them to chase for a Premiership title again ? 

I think also he was not getting the backing of the board to be able to really go out and spend big , so they get a chance to go further in Europe .

Was he right to go ... maybe , but maybe for me at the end of the season would have been better . One thing Celtic fans shouldn’t forget is the legacy he’s left.

yes he does could have stayed till end of season Leicester said they wait he got backing of celtic board  when he thought he was going to china last july ask a few celtic players to go with him they said no will walk away from Leicester as soon as he feels pressure cant handle it but does not deserver the song going around

As big a club as Celtic are they play in a league with no competition. Moving to us with a bunch of young players,  80 million pound new training ground being built and ground expansion on the way is obviously a new exciting challenge for him. Singing songs about killing him for moving justifies the move alone.

Says a lot about Scottish football that Brendan Rodgers would consider moving to a mid table premier league side. Could have sat tight and waited to see if/when the Spurs and Chelsea jobs become available.

he got backing but by trying to get 3 players to go china with him before it fell through he split the dressing room  would u give a man like that millions

It could well be Mike . 

We lacked the cutting edge up front and not got a strong enough bench in depth as City has , or the experience at this stage of the season to push on . It may well prove a step too far for us , but it’s still only one point and some interesting games to come .

Ok just throwing this out there , but what if , and it’s a long shot I know , but what if Utd beat City and that proved to be the game that gave us the title 🤪.

Couldn't happen .. could it ?

What’s the bet the English teams get drawn against each other ... 

But over two legs ... I’d take us to match most now ... maybe Porto is the easiest draw ... then Ajax but no easy draws now .

VVD and Mane where immense tonight .

I guess your right Mike and you would think that would make sense , but whatever the draws are on Friday, we are in for some more fantastic nights of European footy . 

Going to make the end of the season interesting as well if Liverpool and City progress to the semi , look at the fixtures then. 

Never rule out Barca and Juv’ ..

Would you credit it .. you should be a bookie Mike . 

Some mouth watering matches and despite what everyone says , there are no easy games at this stage , home or away . 

The Champions League just gets better and better , can’t wait for that music to start again. 

Predictions ?

I’d lock the door behind you Steve , as you don’t want any of the England women’s front row following you in mate .

England 80 v Scotland 0 

Showed our boys how to keep a lead .. well done Wales though . 

And never mind Utd .. out of one cup - soon out of another and 5th in the Prem ... miracles can happen
