Anscombe try disallowed by TMO as England edge Wales at Twickenham

I always find these try no try things interesting, but I wish all folk could act with some humility... Gatland going off has now been proved wrong by 45678's video link. But in the flip side, I head Eddie Jones borderline berating a new reporter for asking him about that incident... You know damn well, shoe on the other foot and he'd have been at the very least raising an eyebrow...

He could have turned around and said, "yeh look, referees make the calls and we have to deal with them, I'm happy the call went our way" or something like that... Regardless of your views it was a bloody tight call, I still maintain the judgement on the grounding was incorrect, (based on various TMO decisions I've seen over the years), but obviously as seen it was technically a correct call overall..

Thomas brace not enough as Scotland edge out France in Murrayfield thriller

Ahh ok, thanks for clearing that up, he did seem a natural at that position!

I suppose all teams go through an ebb and a flow, but it seems Frances coach changing every few months, and lack of picking decent players etc Trinh-Duc would be a first pick for me years ago but (as we've discussed before) I think you mentioned he fell out of favour with a coach?

Guirado is a solid player!!! Don't worry, Parisse (poor bloke) holds that record I'm sure!

France.... Honestly they are the most unpredictable team out there...

They pick Beauxis... A guy who according to commentators hasn't been in the mix for france for over 6 yes, and iirc he's a 15... Yet he slots in like a dream... I didn't notice him getting caught out particularly, despite being in a hugely important pivotal position...

They seem like they have the ability to be top winners, yet their handling and discipline seems to be the only thing against them...

Fair enough then. At least that draws a line under the whole thing. Seems to me the 'grounding' was definitely going to be one of those agree to disagree topics amongst England and Wales fans and indeed neutrals all over...that seems to end it all..

Of course they don't, but as much as I'd love to see Cole make that effort, we DID actually see Anscombe make contact with the ball. Doesn't mean Wales would have won, but in many people's opinions, it's surprising it wasn't given as a try.

I (and I'm sure many others) have seen fingertips scoring tries before, not entirely sure how this was different..

I thought it was quite an interesting match in the "what if's" camp...

I know England was missing some key players, but IF Wales had 1/2p he'd have 99% got that penalty kick, followed by the IF that try was (imo non Welsh opinion) awarded, then we'd be looking at an entirely different scoreline... Of course no one knows the reactionary effect that could have on the England lads, no telling whether they'd have found an opportunity somewhere else.. but I certainly think this was a bloody close match and had the ability to be closer..

I see it as a try... I get this is down to an interpretation, those in white will think it's right, those in red will think it's a bad called.. and neutrals will I guess be half half..
