Congrats Scotland, thoroughly deserved.
I've seen the truth ... and I don't understand it!

Fair representation of the way Glasgow and Scotland have developed a modern attacking style of winning rugby. Better side by a mile.
Keep the faith

For me we needs to get rid of all these coaches and start afresh. Shocking performance!
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Congratulations to John Barclay. Wales were clueless in the second half - Howler and all the rest of them are not up to it. Unfortunately neither is the WRU management. We need a Vern Cotter, someone with coaching intelligence, not someone who has got on by just saying "yes Warren."
What's going on?

It is surely now time to end the misery and change the coaches?

howley needs a long holiday outside wales

Let's be honest we don't have good enough players or coahes to play a modern game.

its totally wrong that gatland is allowed 2 years off in the last 5? talk about devaluing the welsh team....ive never heard of such a ridiculous situation , leaving his underkilled minnions in charge?
let gatland go...scour the world over to get in a totally new coaching crew asap

changing the players will be tougher as theres not much depth and we cant choose non welsh qualified

despite it all, this is a welsh squad that is under performing, I really think biggar lying too deep at 10 is a massive part of our problem

Well done Scotland, dominated the second half and deserved the win. Congrats to John.

One question before the next match selection. Is Steff's defence any weaker than North's? (Two missed tackles on Visser which led to the try).  If not, then Steff should be starting.

Warburton and Tipuric were excellent, Ken had a good game, Scott and Foxy went OK.  Scotland's kicking from hand was more effective.  We'll be fifth.

Scotland thoroughly deserved that, but Lacey destroyed us at the breakdown.

Congrats to Scotland. They showed wales' weaknesses today. No creativeness at 10. Out of form players, and a number 7 who can't play the physical game we want to play. Howley is a disgrace. Any decent coach would have fallen on his sword a long time ago. And to top it all off our main head coach showed no emotion at all towards the result. Do us all a favour(while coaching team).... lose your bleeping passports in New Zealand and don't bother coming bac.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

Realistically, this was the year to stuff results and blood the next crop of youngsters for the next World Cup cycle.
Rhun Williams, Ashton Hewitt, Steff Evans, Keenan Giles, Tyler Morgan, Owen Williams, Sam Davies, Garyn Smith, Tomos Williams, Jon Evans, James Davies, Ellis Jenkins, Will Boyde, Thomas Young, Adam Beard, Dillon Lewis, Ryan Elias, Elliot Dee, Wyn Jones.
Young players, all either uncapped or with less than 5 caps, that pretty much covers every position. I'm not saying that every player here will be international class, or that every player should be in the squad. I know some aren't fit and some aren't in form.
But these are the kinds of players that needed to be given debuts as early as possible in order to see who can make Wales a better team.

Watching Ireland V France. French defence brutal, but Ireland's passing is superb. Wales never pass the ball with such speed, accuracy and imagination.

I had a few watching the game, but needed a whole lot more afterwards but my initial impression was that other than individual errors and missed tackles it was the slow ball from the breakdown which ensured our defeat. We didn't commit  enough players for clearing out and brilliant though Tipuric is at running around the field in the loose he very rarely jackals or win turn-overs, nor does Moriarty and Scotland had plenty more quick possession to attack us with.
I will almost certainly delete most of this when I sober up in the morning.
