Well Wales look set to win this tournament again, we have a strong team, hopefully Shane Williams and Ryan Jones will be fit for the match against England.
BUT what about Ireland then!!!!!!!! They dominated France good and proper!!!!! They could be the ones who upset the applecart if they carry on playing like they did against France!!!!! A great game to watch and kept me on the edge of my seat!!!

Well played to Wales and as I have said before it is good to see welsh Rugby at a high level. That said, I am proud of the way England played against the best Northern Hemisphere team. Much to improve on but I think the future could be good for Martin Johnson and his team..

I haven't yet seen the game, but well done to Wales, the first step on the way to a Grand Slam. I must say, though, looking at the score, Wales 6 penalty goals, England none  :o Wales 1 try, England 2  :o :o I wondered how that could be possible, but then I saw who the referee was, Jonathan Kaplan from South Africa, say no more  >>:-( >>:-(. In my opinion, for what it's worth, he is the worst referee of the current crop, and a blight on the game. Like Andre Watson of past years (also a South African) he has ruined more games than I care to think about,  <*< and must blow more peas out of whistles than any referee in history  %) . However, both teams had to put up with him.

That said, congratulations to Wales, and I hope you do win the Grand Slam  :-)) :-)) (I also hope the Australian team watches you play, they could certainly learn from you).

I watched the game and felt the ref gave Wales too much leeway, they could be offside, slowing the ball down, and he just told them not to do it. England get sent off after just a couple of warnings, he warned England early on in the game where Wales had to wait until the second half before he bothered to warn them, Southern Hemisphere refs are a right pain in the rear.

Peter,

Kaplan would have been welcomed with open arms in Paris after Clancy's first 6 nations performance (wish it was his last). Clancy as Ref and Wayne Barnes as a touch judge - total nightmare.

Stavros, complaints about the refereeing usually result in comments of "poor loser", but in many cases the complaints are justified. As I said earlier, I have not seen the game, and my comments were based on past experiences watching Jonathan Kaplan referee.

BarryM, my biggest problem with Rugby Union is there are far too many rules open to interpretation by the referee, and what one will penalise severely, another will treat far more leniently. I firmly believe that tries should be the prime object of a Rugby team, or even drop goals, because at least the attacking team has got itself into a position to score. Games that are decided on penalty goals will always leave a sour taste in the beaten team's supporter's mouths, mainly because it is refereeing decisions that dictate the outcome of the match. Chingdevil's comment about southern hemisphere referees being a pain in the rear echo my thoughts about some northern hemisphere refs. It all gets back to my comment about interpretation, and referees from the different Rugby playing countries have differing interpretations of the rules, which leads to much confusion, and frustration.

I have to agree with Peter, the referee was not good and did seem to favour Wales. That said, it was England's own fault. They showed a lack of discipline early on that he decide to stamp out and therefore his mind was more on the English than the Welsh. Still a very good game and the best team won.

Peter,
My comments were based on a French try given after a forward pass to which both Ref and Touch Judge were blind and the Refs bias towards the French playing at home. Too many penalties given to the French and too many overlooked when Scotland would have benefitted plus total blindness to the constant French offside playing. Nothing to do with rule interpretation.

Cheers

Barry M
PS Well done, Wales!
