    The irony of Barnes ruling out an AB try for a forward pass in the build up

    Too bad Hansen butchered the selection last week, maybe we could have ended up with the final almost everyone predicted at the beginning of the tournament.

    It was forward though. Ironic maybe, but the right decision.

    One of those calls where the slow motion paints a different picture. Pretty harsh, but but probably the right call.

    Full strength Wales would give NZ a good game.
    We just don't have the players to suffer this number of losses, and there is no defensive discipline.
    Shame to save one of the worst performances for Gat's last game.

    Also, why do the Wales 9's never notice that if they turn their back for 5 seconds, then NZ will always counterruck? See it coming every time.

    On the bright side, we get to say good riddance to Wayne Barnes after this.

    I don't know. I feel its less to do with NZ selections and more to do with the occasion and England continously putting NZ on the back foot and panic set in. No stress this game and NZ are treating it as an exhibition match.

    Nope sorry, England were too good on the day. Don't think a Wales team playing poorly with no defensive shape directly substitues an England team playing an almost perfect defensive game for a second.

    0-12 against NZ (including today), 3-13 against Oz and 5-11 against SA. That includes 2 victories (and 4 defeats) on neutral turf (1 each against Oz and SA), but not a single win away. In 12 years! One of the several reasons I personally don't think the Gatland era has been anywhere near as magnificently successful as the media are so keen to make out.

    Can’t argue England played very well and applied immense pressure...these just a question is one or two of these experience guys could have handled that pressure better

    You might be right, but my point is still valid, in my opinion Hansen chose poorly.
