Yeah, lol, it made it look like we were bullied about a bit, but far from it. Ditto on the robinson vid, that was class. Should've hit him harder!

Clip obviously put together by a taff, cuz those tackles were about all they had to show from the game.

if england played only half as bad as they look with their paint swish kit the score would be the other way round

Anonymous - learn to spell, you muppet. Wales got hammered, and the 'big' tackles you put in were all you had to show. Before you start crying about it being your thirds, all we can do is play what's in front of us, right?As for sheep shagging, it's a national passtime for the Taffs, not the rest of us...

Only one English tackle shown at the very end.

We were totally out-muscled by the English pack. think thats where all the nasty hits came from. welsh frustration?Anyone know the song?

The highlight for me was seeing that welsh twat getting taken out at the end. Is it me or was it just mostly Welsh dirty play?Hahahaha out in the group stages!

wow your funny. judging from your run of play if you'd of played Fiji you'd of been more dead and buried that we were...The aggro was largely due to your immense pack denying our third team any decent ball. your backs were shocking though.

I dont understand why the English were having mega erections about beating Wales' third string team.I mean, Wales have beaten you twice in the last 3 6 nations tournaments. 'I'd rather wear a turban than a rose' lol classic.Im not welsh fyi

"as long as we beat the English we don't care" - Yes, very nice and parochial, says a lot as to why Welsh rugby as done nothing for over 30 years. Oh and the fact remains that you didn't!

England do have a huge pack and can use it effectively, as in this game, but really their backs are awful and it showed in the rematch in this six nations! loads of people are talking about Cipriani being some sort of god after one game. his stats at one point in the second half were 8 passes, 9 kicks, and no runs. i wouldn't pay to watch him lead a backline
