Not a bad result for England 2nd XV against the Welsh 1st XV ;) and we have stopped them becoming Number 1 team :D

I'm sure that Willi will be on the plane for Japan. He showed today that he is an international scrum half like all of Shedweb always knew he was.
Wales has blown the opportunity to be the World's Numbe One.
Impressed with the England Scrum and some of the lesser 'name' players.
Well done Eddie too.

Very impressive from a largely england 2nd team.
Some very good performances today from some that get criticised on here. Ford, Francis etc. Well done EJ

I guess the game showed that Eng have more in reserve than some thought. Decent run out for both teams and Wales were at least the no.1 team for 24 hrs. Next week will be interesting for both selection and the result. Lets hope no one has an injury of any consequence.
I suspect Eng benefited more from several week of training than Wlaes and other teams since the players didn't have a string of Prem games in the build up.
Oh and well done EJ for picking a team that won against a top Int team !!!! ;)

Not1Eyed - yes, a clear yellow and borderline red I think. A decent performance by England; when the pressure came this time, they didn’t crack. It will be interesting to see what team he picks for the return.

It is a sad fact that there will probably be at least one player for whom the RWC ends in the next few weeks. Lets hope it isn’t Tom Curry who has been outstanding.

Not1eyed/gB83, you were being teased...there's none so blind as those that will not see! Trust me, you don't get 68 caps, a nomination for world player of the year, get called onto a Lions tour etc. If you're a numpty! Still, what do the likes of Vern Cotter know?
