Re: Who is going to do an England?

Has to be England. They have the two most capable challengers in France and Argentina whereas the other pools show a bit of distance after the likely top two. Any of France, England or Argentina really. Tough pool, I'm expecting Argentina to put on a decent show, they have a pretty well rounded gam...

I think Ireland are up for this. They’ll be eager to get one over on a side that essentially nilled them in their last competitive encounter.

Re: The Official Welsh Rugby Thread

In fairness, to JJ Williams, I thought he was right. We’ve no hope of winning a World Cup with Biggar at 10.
Might be interesting seeing biggar in a Farrell 12 selection. Doubt that would happen with Anscombe unavailable now though.

Assuming the Wail is correct, who is now our starting #10? Biggar is obviously the main man, but can he get his team moving like Patchell does? Is it still the role he played with Anscombe?
