My ars* is already twitching. The thought of a final, and against those wank*rs is all to much.

This might be the most nervous I've ever been for a rugby game.

2011 was a doddle because we were massive favourites and France were shit. But this? Good grief.

I'm starting to think we will win.

This is the 4th time I've changed my mind this week but I've just got a feeling. Wales by 5.

I'm nervy as well. I'd be more confident but Wales scrapping by last week and seeming oddly uncomfortable with Frances big physical presence last week has put me on edge. The positives are Wales did adapt to that French rampage and kept the score close, even before the card somewhat, and that was our worst game, hopefully it's out the system. Navidi being out is the worst, I'm not to fussed with Halfpenny replacing Williams as Wiliams was playing like Halfpenny anyway. Glad Davies is back though.

Watching the ITV coverage, it's amazing how big Mike Phillips is. You very rarely get to see players line up side by side, but he's towering over Habana and Ickle, and bigger than Alfie, who's not a small guy himself.

I'm not at all nervous. New Zealand are better than South Africa and Wales are the current 6ns champions and clearly better than England. It should be a doddle :thumbup:

tbh Alfie has lost loads of weight, but yes he is a big unit.

The Wail reckoned he was 3rd earlier on. I'd say, if he did somehow manage to win the World Cup as captain, he'd be top.

Given that everyone has been reckoning the Boks were going to walk right over us, 9-6 is good going. At this stage, the optimist in me says that this looks a lot like some of our 6 Nations games. Grind out the first half, solid 20 after half time, and grind out the win in the last 20.

However, if we play another half like that, we'll just lose 9-6 again and lose the game.
