Some suggestion that Moriarty won't make the Ireland match - picked up a shoulder knock so will be touch and go. Faletau also not quite ready so we might be seeing Navidi switched to 8, Tips back in at 7, with Shingler at 6. A very mobile backrow. Could James Davies sneak a bench spot?


Reckon that would be an improvement given Moriarty lack of match fitness, especially if he’s now carrying a shoulder too. James Davies would be fantastic of the bench too, although I’d start him.

Just listening to a BBC podcast and they're suggesting Faletau might get game time this weekend...if so he certainly becomes a bench option. Would love to see Davies get on the bench but he's not going to ahead of an even 80% Faletau I wouldn't think.

Just because of my CubbyLurv, I do hope he benches. Wouldn't even care about the result. Ooooh.

Is henry banned? Or is he just tired of the f**king same conversations day in, day out, from the same cold, soulless, glazed-eyed, hope vampires, blowjobbing the junk of levity from the flacid cocks of current affairs for thousands upon thousands of pestilent posts for no other reason but the putrid emptiness of their own barren cadavered lives.

We need more optimism lads. 🤸🏼‍♀️

My dad was Irish, this match was best when both sides were utter shite - the result was unimportant, the day was everything.

I thought that only Dai was thick enough to post photos of "so-called" Irish itinerant caravans with yellow (UK) registration plates.

But Welsh posters were at it in 2014 too, apparently.
Can you not get those poor Welsh people a decent home?
They have obviously been homeless for years, with nothing better to do than reproduce mediocre props.

I like Wales and the Welsh.

Wales is the spiritual home of Rugby in my opinion.

Yep, it’s the obvious conclusion to make. Ban the prick

This game is a really interesting one from the perspective of the overall Championship. Ireland-England is undoubtedly the 6N decider, and it's amazing that it's likely to go down to the last day. However, I wonder what influence Wales could have over it all, and whether there's any prospect of us pinching a cheeky second-place from the loser at Twickers (which would have been beyond my wildest dreams 3 weeks ago).

England not getting a 4-try BP at home to Wales is a missed opportunity, particularly given that Wales have the chance to get two BP wins against Italy and France (although the latter is less likely at present).
If the Irish take the BP win against Wales in Dublin (not beyond the realms of possibility), then it's Advantage Ireland. If Wales get a losing BP (or two - I could easily envisage a high-scoring, close match), then that puts them in a very strong position going into the last two games.
If England fail to get 4 tries in the Calcutta Cup (God only knows which Scotland will turn up), they are under the pump a little both for the Championship and second-place, given that France away and Ireland at home aren't easy games.

Lots to take into account here, and a pivotal weekend for the Championship in general...

It's not quite in pigs fly territory but the chances are slim, to say the least, that we'll manage to score 4 tries against Wales given it's taken us the last 4 6N games to reach that number.

Oh yeah - a 5 tries to 4 win next weekend isn't looking like a hugely likely outcome, but it's also not beyond the realms of possibility...

Given the BP scenario, is there a way that Ireland could go into the last game without needing to win, even if both are unbeaten by this stage?
It would certainly be a weird Championship that was decided not by wins, but the 6N decided that we were in the business of rewarding attacking play...

No, if you win a Grandslam you get awarded extra points.

Hold on.

Score tries? I thought we were only allowed don't hat against the Italians in some backroom-negotiated tries for pasta deal struck by the families?

Fcuks sake. How can we be expected to go out and score tries against anyone else if we haven't had time to brief the negotiating team on their positioning?

What do we need from the Leekists? Sheep? Slate? Fossil fuels?

Could be a mutual agreement. Taffs only scored tries against a dogshit Scotland.

True.

But Wales were only a dodgy TMO call and wonder tackle by Underworsley away from a brace against the Saes.

I'd be wary of giving Underworsely too much credit for Williams being a moron tbh.

It was a great tackle - Williams didn't do too much wrong (he dived at the right time) - people will say he should have passed it inside to North, but it all happened in the blink of an eye & it's easy to say with hindsight. You've got to credit the tackler
