His calls really put into question his refereeing integrity. He seemed to be helping and willing the English on.

What was the penalty count for each team?
12 to Wales 7 to England. But Wales do seem to be penalty machines at the moment.

You're 10 ahead.

Anyway, I've an early start tomorrow so lucky for me I can't watch the second half!

Everyone enjoy.
