Putting in illegal hits? - Patchell is a big boy anyway, I'm sure he can handle it.....unlike your 10


Nothing illegal about that. That would flatten Patchell too


Lawes is a mouth-breathing cheap-shot merchant

No you fvcking dickhead, what the fans want to see is a win

Little more than an hour after the England head coach, Eddie Jones, had made a number of unflattering observations about Wales, their scrum coach Robin McBryde said: “I think we have a duty to the paying public – the price of tickets at Twickenham is quite high so the last thing [fans] want to see is a scrum-fest. We are comfortable with our attacking threats.”

I'd just like a good game with Rugby being the winner.

The daft thing about Eddie's comments is, he's essentially told Wales that Joseph is going to be used an an outside shooter...and this is what happens when you have obvious outside shooters:

Anyone got that gif of Scott Williams man handling Lawes, stripping the ball off him and running in for the match winning try in Twickers?

As a 3rd choice OH Patchell is not bad at all. He’s a skilful creative 10, and a fairly wirey lad. Not sure what his defence is like though. Experience could also go against him against England.

He is not a great defender, prone to interceptions and not great when a game needs control
Apart from that he is great

Patchell doesn't seem to lack for confidence though, which he will find useful on Saturday.

At some point he has to grow up. As noted he isn't a great defender, but he's a relatively big lad. I much prefer him defending at 10 than at 15. If Wales can compress the midfield, as is their usual tactic, then I don't think anyone is going directly through/over Patchell...his problems are more centred around making tackles when someones got outside of his shoulder.

For a very quick guy, Tom Croft just looked as though he was running through treacle!

You're right though - sneeze, look up and youd wonder what the fudge had just happened.

I'm not worried by England anymore. Their national team hasn't played well for a very long time and their clubs have been performing woefully in Europe. Jonathan Joseph made negative yards carrying against these two centres last month and Anthony Watson got sidestepped by a lock for a try. George Ford is flaky and no Vunipola reduces their carrying threat by 59%

Advantage Wales

I'm not convinced it's a double bluff. Essentially, Eddie is right in that the way to counter a front foot ball fly half that likes to throw flat passes on the gainline is to rapidly close the umbrella on him from outside to in. I'd be amazed if that isn't going to be England's defensive tactic.
