Yes Milli, credit to Portugal,  but Wales. absolute rubbish.
No control, ridiculous  error count, and half backs poor.
Sums up the lack if depth. 
I hold my breath Ouch

The hype around Mason Grady is way off

I agree, he’s just a big lump, he isn’t blessed with pace and he can’t do the basics right, like tackling and passing (essentials for a centre, even at grass roots level).
I’d happily change the halfbacks and centres at half time.

He definitely didn't knock it on, but back towards the Wales line - so no 'deliberate knock on'. Maybe for playing the ball when he was on the ground? It seemed harsh to give a YC for that, if that was the reason.

I think it's too early to say about Grady - he's a young guywith plenty of time to improve.

Anscombe only looks half-fit, so I'd gladly see him swapped for Costelow.

Yes, it was for playing on the ground - stopping the offload.

Not played for a long time of course,  so in fairness to him , not easy. 
Tomos Williams still does not impress me I am afraid.
Just hope Cawdor can stay fit

This is quite simply a disgraceful performance 

The arrogance of Welsh rugby is quite something else. Players plodding around the field as if its their god given right to win

The huge hype surrounding some of our promising players is way, way over the top
Go ahead..........Take those banana's

Awful game, the worst game of the tournament to date.  A lack of composure and killer instinct in the opposition 22 killed us today, we can count ourselves fortunate to be in 10 points from the opening 2 games.  Fiji were the better team but our defence saw us through, today Portugal shouldn’t have caused us any problems but they did.  
Well done to Portugal, they played well for a nation playing in only their second World Cup.

If we lose to them, it might well mean we finish third in the group. If we win, we ought to top the group with room to spare.

Well lemme rephrase it. In our best interests to finish second in the group.

Good to see the small teams play very creditably. Loved their line out try and I hope we use it this season.

Thank goodness for the 4th try at the end.

Will be glad to see the first team out on the pitch next week. More cohesion and ability. Not sure many of the fringe players put their hand up for inclusion next weekend.

Always liked Hawkwind.

What’s the benefit of finishing second?

A really scrappy performance - we lost three lineouts in a row at one point! Not good enough...

Having said that, the ref (for once) seemed to favour the underdog rather than the tier 1 nation - I have no idea how he thought Domachowski obstructed before Cawdor's 'try' on 75min... OK, he's a big lump, but he was just standing there - the other guy pushed him in the back, and would not have had a sniff of LRZ in any case! Poor decision.

I agree totally with the sentiment echoed above, and that no disrespect to Portugal .
Gatland made 13 changes   but brought in experienced players,  who have played international rugby. 
They have had a lot of time in camp, and consequently whatever Portugal did , we should have been miles better.
Complete lack of cohesion, and basic skill ,which at times was not only frustrating, but dumbfounding .

Gatland will now have to resort to his best side, every game now, with the majority of those starting today, either  warming the bench, or watching  from the stands . Some of those could have laid down a
 marker today, but failed to do so, in ah abysmal team performance. 
I am shocked none of  the "so called " ITV pundits,  including 
Sam Warburton,  called it as was was, and pulled their punches.
Not good enough on the field,  not good  enough off it sadly.Ouch

The video replay he watched showed a small percentage of the evidence…..

Dickson appears to be working on being less harsh, which is good to see. His dealings with players are less dictatorial/threatening. He built some empathy in that game so that’s a good step forward.
