It’s a bit of a charade if that happens.

I have elected to go with Wales beating Australia and Georgia and topping the group.
It’s far easier on the brain.

He's cleaned me out already mun...I'll get my own back on him on 'Jonathon' on Thursday though....me and my oldest have the most cunning of cunning plans ....

My 18 year old son is also cleaning me out on the RWC fantasy league too...he's like 300th overall or something...and picking players based on their surnames and kits he likes....like yesterday he picked Grant 'Williams' and made him his captain and tripe point scorers just because they have the same chuffin surname!
240 points or something like that....it's tough being a dad bois.

Reasons to be cheerful
These players have stood out rowands, morgan, faletau, cawdor, North , LRZ and adams
All these are capable of world class moments ,this can make us dangerous
But the front row has been ropey, beard doesnt do enough I prefer jenkins and wainwright needs a big game
Biggar hopefully can go out with some glory hes a good strong character with lots of bottle
Liam needs to sort his head out and cut out the endless stupid errors
Tompkins hot and cold needs to focus on errors or he will be replaced
Lineout is a huge achilles heel we must sort that or theyll ruin our set piece ball

Some are born lucky I guess! Ken talking about his taking Samson to London for the first time on Jiffy’s show was very amusing . I can imagine. No ferrets in Knightsbridge ! 😉

Aus were very poor yesterday, possibly the worst performance I have seen Aus give in recent memory.

If we stay disciplined and calm, (asking a lot), we should win against that team, but we have a habit of self destruction late in recent games which had been cured in Gats' first tenure.  I don't see us conceding 4 tries unless we get carded heavily, so discipline will be a key factor. I would pick Jenkins over Beard personally, in view of his greater hustle and mobility, but leave the team otherwise unchanged, hoping that Biggar is fully fit to play.

Australia’s discipline yesterday was shocking, 18 penalties in all and a at the breakdown.  Pressurise them in that area (as Fiji did) and then let Biggar or HP kick the penalties.
However, despite playing so poorly against Fiji they still managed to stay within 7 points and out score Fiji 3 tries to 1, so even with little possession they can still keep the scoreboard ticking.
As long as we start with halfbacks from the first game and centre partnership we should be too strong.

The Fijian missing last minute kick will cost us dear it would have deprived Aus of bonus point. 
Don’t fancy our chances against Aus they will pick themselves up and be firing on all cylinders. We have no props to put on bench the non selection of Wyn could cost us dear.
Hope to god no injuries to Cawdor or Rowlands or a centre or we in deep doo doos.

Having said that we could even beat Aus and lose to Georgia that would be typical Welsh rugby

She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.
