But weren’t Wales supposed to win

Extended Highlights: England v Wales | Guinness Six Nations

the Grand Slam.

England put the tin lid on Wales’s Six Nations campaign with a comprehensive victory, in which the final scoreline completely flattered the Taffs.

After England lost the opening game of this year’s Six Nations, to France, the Welsh thought the title was theirs, a few weeks later and after 4 games, they have one win to their name. While England sit top of the table.

They beat Italy. Now with the coronavirus they could just take out all the Italy games, call it the Five nations and see Wales fight for the wooden spoon in the final game.

Of course the Welsh are choosing to focus on the things that distract the attention away from the fact that everything they got out of the game was gifted to them by England. With some help from their “16th man”, as Eddie Jones called the ref.

England aren’t down to 13 men in those final few minutes and Wales aren’t scoring those two tries that distorted the scoreline, 33-30.

Wales are punished for their infringements and that score is wider apart. What with the Welsh now being on their third New Zealander as coach, they’re pretty much on second to the All Blacks in on field cheating – is there a lineout where their hooker doesn’t take two steps towards his own line, down which he then throws it? Is there a ruck where they don’t hold an opponent in and claim it’s that opponent who is infringing?

Of course they’re moaning about Joe Marler’s “sexual assault” and a Courtney Lawes tackle, while completely forgetting their tackle on Tuilagi. Alun Lose Jones, what a crybaby tart.

All that hides the fact they were well and truly stuffed on their big day out. So badly stuff that Ben Youngs had one of his best days in an England shirt. Has someone had a word with him, or was it just the poor Welsh. But he was quick to the breakdown and he was quick getting the ball away from the breakdown. None of that turning late, looking around, slowly picking the ball up, taking a step, hesitating then passing.

Now maybe if Jones had spent less time talking and more time training then they might have beaten the French, I mean if the Jocks can do it, it can’t be hard.
