As long as we beat the English, we don't care!



What a great win, what a great performance, and what a great atmosphere!

James Hook is going to be something special (unless he turns out like Gavin Henson has )! He controlled the game from start to finish, and at 21 he looks the real deal - he has an old head on his shoulders, he has the game and knowledge to be as good as he wants to be, and he has the temprament to do it all!

England were poor, and we let them back into it before half time, but we came back at 'em and gave it to 'em! Why can't Wales perform like that most of the time?! It's SO frustrating, as they clearly showed on Saturday what they're capable of doing!

Ok, England were crap, but every sinlge one of our lads showed they really wanted the win and are capable of better than what they've shown this year. It's a game of confidence, like Hook's shown, and I hope the lads remain confident now until the World Cup.

As long as we beat the English, we don't care!!!!

Cracking game. Hook was class but for me the player of the tournament was Popham. The tackles he put in and the work rate as well as protecting Hook was fantastic. He was one of the few who did it in all the games.
Strange anti climax cause beating England was good but we should have done much better.

Popham was indeed brilliant throughout, as was Alun-Wyn Jones I believe.

Ryan Jones' play was close to being back to it's best also, and others raised their games on the occasion.

If we can perform to the best of our ability in the World Cup then we can cause a stir or two and go as far as the latter stages, with a bit of luck.

We've two games out in Australia in May/June then some games in August before it all kicks off.

My main worry is that Gareth Jenkins will pick the wrong side for the 'big' games and not make use of his 'best talents' in their correct positions.

Moment of the match was Popham gettin his hair pulled after congratulating the Elglish scrum half for giving away a penalty in the first half.

Yep, saw that one! Corry went for the hair-pulling approach rather than the old fisticuffs!
