I agree with the full back thingie vs Ireland and a bit with Oly. England just found two holes in Ireland and France and exploited them beautifully. Nothing fancy, but very efficient. Owen literally toyed with Henshaw at will. To be honest, i don't think that will happen again to Ireland and I'll even double down on them: given it's a world cup year and how the Irish tend to get before world cups, this might have very well been the best thing that could happen to them. A slap on the face for them to focus and not get overconfident. They have enough 6N already and again, WC should be their priority. Should take away some of the pressure too, which is kind of a big deal for them. Their first 15 minutes were an anomaly. They are way better than that. Back to Wales. I dont see Wales being pushed around positionally in a kicking contest. I can see that happening to Scotland tho. I also agree with Oly that man x man, England has a better team than Wales, but i think Wales is a tidier team. They tend to do, on average, very few unforced errors. I don't see the welsh FB being constantly caught out of position nor their backs giving away knock ons from high balls again and again and again. They also tend to give very few scrum penalties and at rucks. Should be a close game. 10s and 15s game. I have England as favourites, by an inch.
