Elliot Daly late try secures England win after titanic battle with Wales

Nowell's sorted his out now, (http://totalflanker.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/rip-jack-nowells-barnet.html?m=1)

Marler's barnet remains a disgrace.

I used to complain about shit haircuts for a laugh, but as I'm getting older I find I genuinely mean it...

Yeah, very possible. Apologies for the pedantry, by the way.

Exhibit A for the case in favour of bringing Rokoduguni in:

Video title: 9 out of 10 of Rokoduguni's tries this season have been insane finishes - well worth a watch.

Good work Colombes, I can't let it go.

I'm sure we've all felt that shitting-yourself sensation when taking an impact like that on the side of the knee. Fear of a busted knee is what made him react so badly, as he explained - very calmly and respectfully - to the ref. Very handled by the referee I must say.

The more important take-out from that clip is how much less of a tit Tom Wood looked with a normal haircut.

Quite right DrG. You really can't beat the understated jog back to your own 22 for a stylish celebration.

Reminds me of Billy Birmingham, as "Richie Benaud", on The Twelfth Man - remember that? Well, I think the High Five is just some silly bullshit brought into the game by the West Indians and it really has no place in the game. And when it comes to congratulating a team-mate, you can't beat an old-fashioned Australian hug, bit of a kiss on the cheek, a grope of the arse or a dry root.

Missed a bit re Daly. I think he's earned the right to be selected in one of his best positions, which from my observation are 15 and 13. Against Italy I'd like to see him in both.

Thanks mate.

I would start Daly at 13 and move him to 15 for the second half. A tall order asking him to play two new (for England) positions, when he's only been picked on the wing so far? Yes, but I reckon he's up to it, he is that good a player in my opinion. But I would make the change at half time to eliminate confusion.

Watson starts at full back, I've seen him put in some cracking performances there for Bath. Only just back from injury so just give him a half. Why risk any more.

Te'o replaces Daly then at 13. Get it done at half time so we can see Te'o over a whole half.

Nowell at wing is one of the first names on the sheet for me. The other wing, well I would get Rokoduguni in, but bizarrely he's not even in the squad is he? We know what May can do, so maybe have a look at Yarde, I don't mind really.

Ha! This is brilliant. Ross Moriarty's post-match interview (parody). Warning: contains swearing and strange accents.

Would be a fascinating sub-text, but Anthony Farrell is not related to Owen. As far as I know anyway.
