I thought BBC was meant to be showing all 3 games online but I could only see the Wales game on there last week .

It's being streamed on yotube and facebook

Wales seemed very spikey last time out against the Italians. Maybe we can reverse the roles of the senior squad and have our guys try to wind them up.

scrum half has been a position that England U20's have historically been weak in, but JVP and Raffi really are amazing talents.

Not sure if it was his elbow? Didn't look good.

England look another level above Scotland. One thing I noticed is that refs are very quick at calling a holding on penalty.

All over Wales the first 13 minutes, really need a score.

Edit: great crashball from Forde, hard to believe he's mostly been a 10 coming up.

That was really nice, loads of players involved in the build up and lovely link up from Osborne and Cosgrave to finish it.

We look waaaaay slicker than this Welsh team so far. Our variety of play is great, attacking ability, handling and offloading all looking great we just need to look after the ball better. Not sure what the Welsh gameplan is their box kicks have been aimless so far. Doak in contrast is kicking very well and making good decisions.

Ireland are faster, stronger and have a better skill set. This could get to be quite a beating.

Ireland look like a age grade above Wales. Wales can't build a platform, lineout is not going great but really struggling to get over the gain line

Think the Wales pack is heavier as well. Our 20s the last few years have been incredibly impressive as teams.

Ireland look really slick with the ball but Wales really look like they have just met up before the game. Can't really work out what they are trying to do in attack.

There's a certain skill level you need to play rugby with a ponytail and I'm not sure the Wales 9 has met the criteria

Man is throwing random wobbly passes like a bird playing tag rugby for the first time.

We should be winning by more here.

Doak is such a baller. Don't want to make a lazy comparison but he's being used like Murray is for Ireland. Big 9 with a big boot who is comfortable sweeping and covering the high ball. Really impressed with him today.
