Could be worse, the 62-5 game is in the related videos.

Glad I never watched this one, looks like it was shite.

Edit: How on earth did they decide that wasn't a knock on?

Eddie’s comments about Patchell aren’t getting any more tasteful after a second examination.

His comments about our nations captain are even worse.
He needs to have some decorum he is sounding like a soccer manager atm.
But hey Eddie's gets the job done an disaster record speaks for himself.
As long as we play well, give our best shot an d don't get beaten by too much I'll be happy against the 2nd best team in the World.
Its about perspective. I remember when we would by 30 plus to this sort of ranked team.

They were hardly 'distasteful' comments. A bit 'pratish' maybe.

Not sure the Welsh really need winding up for an encounter with England - but Eddie just likes to make absolutely sure.

Funny how the Welsh on here keep claiming that they are massive underdogs - yet when they compare their players, man for man, with the English, they rate them just as highly.

I'm not falling for it - and neither will the Gods of the Mockers.

If he was confident he'd be making the 'respect the opposition, no easy games' bollocks, but trying to sow seeds of doubt in the opposition suggests that he has a few of his own.

Just looking at the hard evidence oval.

World rankings, bookies’ odds, England unbeaten at home in the 6N in 6 years.

It doesn’t look great for us.

But will Patchell care about what he says? I don't think I would, I'd be too busy preparing for such a big game to care.

I agree - it's a bit like the Welsh team keep on saying they aren't scared of England at Twickers....... Sort of suggests that being scared is in their minds.

Still, with Gatland's track record, Wales can hardly complain about Eddie playing mind games.

It's all a bit daft.

Yeah, yeah - as you keep reminding us - you knocked us out of our own RWC less than 3 years ago, when we were also huge favourites.

We should start as favourites, at home - but it means nothing once the sides get out on the pitch.

That will remain a dark stain on my underpants for many a year. However, I think we [braying cnuts] went into that game desperately anxious about the selection and game plan. No, that's not hindsight, we feared it was sh1t and were proved right.

On the spite note - it's interesting that Farrell has inherited the Chris Ashton Memorial 'Universally Hated Englishman'* Award

Interesting cos neither of them are typical hoity toity silver-spoon inheriting, plummy-voiced, royalty-redacted-for-legal-reasons knobs like Capt.Bumface.

Also, apart from having quite a punchable face Farrell seems like a nice lad. A 'winner' for sure and maybe a bit of little-man syndrome but hell even if he IS a cnut he is our cnut. And he's a lot better in all senses than Biggar who is just rough.

Is Eddie Jones totally thick? He’s playing mind games with Rhys Patchell. Can’t he see? Patchell is a ginger! He’s been teased from birth. These amateur attempts will just bounce off...

Which is why Gatland is framing it as "I've always had a great record at Twickenham". I think it is to get into the English minds as well, weaken their home comforts.

Every year an individual Wal v Eng player comparison leads to the Welsh giving their players higher marks. They then explain that they will lose anyway because one of their players (the Cuthbert argument) is total shit, or some inexperience, or the bench is weak. So England will win due to strength in depth due to population size, or so on.

I see Eddie's witterings as a massive sign of respect. He usually gives it the 'I'm the coach of England mate" when asked about the other team, and tbf, he's accurately picked out Wales' two most important players...so I reckon it's a sign that he's a bit worried.

Reminds of when England were dicking the Aussies downunder. He once again picked the most important person in their camp (Cheika) and targeted him for his verbal barbs.

Bit disappointed that when Eddie was banging on about Alun Wyn intimidating referees and bringing in behaviour from other sports, that a hack didn't point out that only one of the captains on Saturday has been red-carded and banned for calling a ref a "f*cking cheat".

That might have stemmed his flow somewhat.

Good, honest rugby chat that...not like the perfidious actions of a captain asking a ref to look at an incident.

He's 100% correct. That's what AWJ does. He did the same thing after the Scarlets scored a last minute winner v Ospreys on boxing day. Tried to prevent the conversion with his mate Biggar.

Nothing wrong with wanting to know a try has been legitimately scored. I'm sure the Turks wouldn't have wanted to win if the try wasn't legal. It's not going to stop a genuine try, just remove all the post match whinging if a poor decision is made.

Agreed. But trying to prevent the match from going ahead is taking it a stage further. Unfortunately, the tv coverage didn't show it as they were showing replays of the try but the rest of the Ospreys team were behind the posts - AWJ and Biggar were infront of the ball, harranguing the referee making TMO signs trying to stop Patchell(?) take the conversion.

I realize Eddie's motives on this. But he is not wrong.

As long as they're not getting in the referee's face (and despite what Eddie says, AWJ was hardly hectoring the ref in the Jock game, just checking with him that he was going upstairs) they'd be daft not to stand in a place that prevents the kicker taking it quickly.

As you said, the TV coverage of the O's v Turks didn't show this, so I'll have to take your word for it. I think AWJ sets a good standard for his interaction with refs. He's a long way from Parisse. (and of course, the aforementioned ref-abusing Hartley)

Is it any different from the comments Gatland made about Dylan Hartley a few years ago?
“He always seems to have a lot to say for himself,” Gatland said. “He was responsible with some of the evidence for Richie being banned for a long period.”

Gatland was also quick to criticise the Saints hooker over a confrontation with his Blues counterpart Gareth Williams at Franklins’ Gardens.

The players exchanged a few words as they left for the sin-bin before the end of the Saints’ 23-15 victory. Williams, who was pitched against Hartley when England won 30-17 at Twickenham 12 months ago, was clearly unhappy with Hartley.

Gatland said: “He was not prepared to step outside to the back of the stand with Gareth Williams when he was invited to, so we will see how he fronts up against us.

“England’s line-out imploded a bit against South Africa in the autumn and a couple of weeks ago Hartley went to pieces playing for Northampton at Leicester. Kiwis have been known to crack under pressure and choke. So let’s hope he does on Feb 4.”

Which part of "you can not check if a try is legally awarded or not, once a conversion has been taken"? To me, a team rushing to take a conversion, shows that they might have some doubt about it`s authenticity.
