Matthew Morgan scores 90m solo effort for Ospreys against Edinburgh

He has a pretty good long range kicker also, needs to work on his defence and he could be a international.

Brian O'Driscoll dumped off the ball by Mauro Bergamasco

I agree that you cant just take men of the ball, that would be silly. But you have the likes of Leinster running very good lines in twos and threes and well timed flat, short balls then you cant let them through. If BOD had been further away from the ball carrier then i would agree, but one offload and he is through, you have to defend the channels. Most players would have just dropped the shoulder on BOD which would probably be worse.

Fantastic tackle, not even borderline, he kept control of BOD and never went beyond horizontal, seriously lads if you dont want to see this type of tackling go and watch football and stop spoiling rugby union. In the modern game you have to take out dummy runners, the ball could have easily gone to BOD and if BERGAMASCO had let him through we would all be laughing at him. A penalty would have been harsh.

Wales thrash England by record score to retain Six Nations title

I though Steve Walsh refed the game superbly. England were mentally and physically dominated!

What England learned today was to Fear the Welsh. Roll on Twickenham 2015

Samoa stun Wales with impressive win at the Millennium Stadium

Wales were terrible.

They ran single lines at Samoa, which is a bad idea. I can also vouch that Richard Hibbard will not have long bleached blond hair and silver boots next time he plays Samoa, ha.

Samoa are good at the big hits and its no shock that that no2, no8, no10 and no15 had had a hiding in the first 60mins, they know when a yellow is worth risking.

Wales have it all wrong in my opinion, North and Cuthbert shouldn't play together as neither can drop into scrum half when Philips is having a scrap at the bottom of a ruck (every other phase). To make this worse wales use Philips in the defensive line all the time and neither North or Cuthbert sweep infield (in defense or attack). Besides we dont use their size or pace anyway.

Priestland and Biggar are like for like, both are an attacking target due to their small size and neither have a presence on the field. Hook aint bright enough in my opinion, Cardiff have a youngster (Patchell) who has the attributes and its time we started looking for a bigger (pun!) no10.

Most of all wales weren't hungry enough, there was a period at 60mins when Samoa were tired when it looked like we might wake up but the game slowed into scrum and kicks yet again. I did however enjoy the game and Samoa were a delight to watch and full credit to them.

Samoa stun Wales with impressive win at the Millennium Stadium

I think comparing him to ROG is an insult to the irish man (who handles pressure and kicks goals), I dont agree that he was poor in the WC and the 6 nations grand slam; he unlocked the backs very well and did the things you don't see. This season however he has been so sh*t i dont know why he is in the squad.

Wales were very poor, ran in single lines at Samoa = suicide

WIN a copy of Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge for Sony Vita

Hello Pretzel

I have played both this and the EA version and rugby challenge i have played allot. Unfortunately both games were rushed and both have aspects that are good, ea - backline plays, dropping into the pocket and the option of passing to a back or forward meaning you can crash ball effectively with the forwards, unfortunately the good ends there, it looks terrible and handles like a pig. Rugby challenge main redeeming factor is that you can change the settings, like offload frequency, success rate, tackle strength ability, pass success and also attacking and defensive urgency. So you can just alter the setting and make different teams more effective, i have a low offload and pass success rate, defensive and attacking urgency and a slightly higher break tackle ability. however this is only available fo local play and not online. worth a play but if u have someone to play with and you can develop different playing styles. IT is however glitchy and the terrible commentary is slightly humorous as it is so bad, and it does have "gees that cold have put him in ward 4" "I hope not Justin thats the maternity ward"

The Wallabies snatch dramatic win over Wales at the death

In my opinion I dont think Hook has the ability to dictate a game on his own, I feel he is very good in attack but not a complete 10 and think 12 is his position, but certainly not full-back.

If Priestland knew where his strength lied then he could be a v.good no 10, not that we have seen evidence of this in the last to games.

The Wallabies snatch dramatic win over Wales at the death

Priestland is only good when is he takes a backseat and directs the backline, when he playes with his head up and turns the defence he is good with accurate kicking, he was the reason for Wales having a half decent worldcup. Knowing him personally he has a very high opinion of himself. As soon as he tries to get himself on TV and make linebreaks and get involved (prob trying to be Dan Carter) his all-round game suffers and he is terrible and gets rattled.

However it must be remembered that we dont have any other alternatives. (Hook does not have the vision in my opinion and Mr Biggar has allot to learn.)
