Yeah. Anscombe had a great game. Thought Patchell was good too though, given he took on the first 30 minutes at 10 when England were organised and on it.But how good was Farrell? Should have got motm. England just wouldn't have won without him. By contrast, Wales were missing 9 Lions and still rattled HQ!
I'm not a fan of Patchell but to be fair to the boy the service he had off nine was so slow, England just lined him up every time.Anscombe had a faster service off a quicker nine and so more time to play with. Just putting that out there that maybe the slow service was to blame for Patchell poor performance, and let's be honest we all know he's a better player than he was yesterday
Chwarae teg. Patch had a complete nightmare and Anscombe took the opportunity to open them up when he moved to 10. Probably would have been better to switch them round from the start, but there we are. I'm off for a cup of tea and some humble pie for breakfast...
Gatland has done what was expected.Picked 10 from the Scarlets, best side in Wales. If they win how much credit will he give Wayne Pivatt,?.doubt he'll get a mention.Why? because Gatts and Howler will be happy to piggyback on Llanelli success.Hope the gamble pays off. At least we wont be watching Warren Ball.
Back line without a 7. Not how i'd take advantage of Scotland's pack injury crisis. Not 1 of them are known for huge amounts of turnovers. Also think Moriarty and Navidi are like for like. Getting the same thing with both. I agree James, Watson and Barclay are going to have a field day at the breakdown. Hopefully i'll be proved wrong.
For once gatland has probably picked the right 15! I feel for tipuric and Davies bu navidi brings something different! And took his opportunity well in the Autumn! Although what's happened to the 10 12 combination? Why say something and go back on it? However I agree with the combinations and patchell with Adams big calls but Josh had to start is the form winger in the UK u would argue! It will still be a big ask against the Scots but the team should be confident and up for it sat I'm sure!
Be good to see some of the younger and new players getting there chance to prove them self now it's not the end of the world we dnt need to call the older ones bk in with the new 👌
Play all of the Scarlet players and we'll win the Grand slam. Shame that we have injured players. Hopefully they'll recover soon. Wishing them a speedy recovery.
Let's look at the positives from this. Even with these key heavily experienced players injured gatland is still not calling in the likes of Roberts, charteris, or jenkins; who have around 300 caps between them. This is a big opportunity to test our depth in the first 3 games at least
