No one does exquisitely miserable failure quite like this country of mine.

Nah, Scotland win the moral victory by miles, they played very well.

It would be so, so funny if we won this. It won't happen, but it would be hilarious.

Allez! France beating England and they are not even playing.

Mind you, I didn't think it was a knock on.

But as funny as it was, both tries were perfectly fine and legal. Don't really see the problem.

that second one is 100% legal according to the laws. now is that law full of grey areas that leave it down to individual interpretation? yes. but still.

first one is the first unwritten rule. play the whistle. tough shit.

England should have had a load of cards in fairness.

Well yeah with the first one, English players had started moving away from the huddle before the ref blew to restart. Just keep your eyes open guys sorry about that.

Controvosies aside, the game ended up nil nil in the 2nd half. Then Wales won it by 16. Wales really aren't as good as they think they are but fair enough they won it today.

wales are an incredibly average team which is why it’s incredibly funny that they keep winning

Nigel Owens adamant that the two controversial tries shouldn't have been given.

Ah well!

Absolutely clarifies for me that the two correct decisions were made then.

Yeah I'm not sure I agree with Owens really, for what it's worth (nothing).

First one was England not paying attention in my view. And even then, the huddle had broken up before the ref blew to restart and some of the England players had made it into the defensive line. Biggar hadn't said he was going for goal, so you might assume he was punting it into touch. But as Guscott said after the Hardy try, another quick tap and go, Daly had his back to the action and was wandering off, assuming they'd go for the points. In that instance Daly was blamed.

Second one, the actual written law around knock-ons is so threadbare as to allow any number of interpretations or extrapolations so it's a toss up.

you’d think someone like Nige who didn’t read the rule book and mostly decided which laws he was going to enforce depending on what he had for breakfast would have a bit more sympathy for his country men.

probably doesn’t want to fuck up his endless stream of bbc money.

People weren't that keen on his input when he said May's try against Italy shouldn't have been allowed so yeah, who knows. Who cares.
