I'm not sure about anyone else but I find watching Wales very boring. I include the Wales v Ireland in that too. Yes it's been intense ferocious and unrelenting but I don't see us comfortable in doing what is asked. The game was an open one yesterday in the main and it was crying out for Faletau and Sam to have come on quite early. We need to be playing our natural footballers. As time goes on in feel more and more that I'm watching St Helens or Wigan. The Ball is designed to be passed not stuck up some someone's jumper for him to charge like hell. In the 92/93 season Llanelli played rugby avoiding contact and attacking the space provided. It's time these welsh coaches moved on and we got coaches in who are far more respectful of the inate skills that Welsh rugby has.

couldn't agree more martin,unfortunately the farce at the end will deflect attention away from the fact that apart from the deliberate knock down we never looked like scoring and we have some players who are very handsomely paid can't do the basics of the game like giving and taking a pass,the tactic of kicking the ball away and letting the opposition run back at you will always result in tired players and mistakes at the end of games(how many times time have we lost in the last 5 mins of game).

In fairness, neither England or Ireland looked like scoring from open play yesterday.

It is in effect, league with lineouts. Even the scrums are as crooked as the ones you get in league.
