    2 sides unbeaten due to clash in a fortnight, shame Wales hadn't achieved the bonus points tally & only to be that much closer to the England total. This could well be a factor at the end of this 6 Nations championship, for any team still in contention.
    2019 & it will be time for a change.

    A good win for England but I'd like to suggest that this was thanks largely to Wales having demoralised the French so thoroughly with that massive comeback in week 1

    Two weeks of hype coming up, hold fast and remember 2013!

    DB, we offer thanks in bucket loads to Wales and no, we'd like to forget 2013, and the World Cup game and ....and...

    Yes, pity about the bonus points but it was pretty much the 2nd XV and it will only matter if there's no Grand Slam. England must be firm favourites next week but they're not invincible.
    “There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”

    This is why we don't need to be worried about England coming to Cardiff...

    Mako being injured is a huge blow for England and a great bonus Wales... it’s hard to think of many props who are so dynamic

    I think Genge and/or Moon are up to the job, we'll soon find out, but yep, he's right up there with the best loose heads around.

    Jon, that video is very disturbing....

    I think they’re both great players, but Mako brings something else at the moment... huge tackle and carry count against Ireland.... he was phenomenal
    I do like watching Genge though, there’s always that slight feeling he may do something 1. Amazing... and go on a barnstorming run or 2. mental and get carded... life on the edge!

    Genge v Sinckler , which one will be carded first. However ,you need props like this who are willing to front up in the heat of “battle”, and it will be hot in Cardiff.

    I think there is no doubt that the Welsh front row would rather face Genge / Moon than Vunipola. He's improved his scrummaging a lot to go with his all court game. Definitely a big loss for England.
