Post If anyone from Wales can see beyond the six nations
At last I saw today something from Wales I have not seen for a while and that is a bit of strength in depth in the squad, as an English fan I have never put the six nations more than a good training exercise for England to try and build up for and win the RWC, you may understand this one day if Wales ever win the RWC that the 6 nations really becomes insignificant.

I know both teams were depleted of a lot of players through injury which have given others opportunity to shine and gain much needed meaningful test time, I think Wales having injuries was a long term advantage forced on Gatland that he had to try other players, this is something Eddie Jones always does ( look how he changed Kruis after a poor couple of games last year ) and I do not think Gatland would have done changes if all "first" choice were available to him no matter how lame some had become.

So do not be too disheartened my Welsh neighbours, you lost today and could have won if things had gone your way but if it were my team I would be happy for the future if the development continues, it's a big if mind because I am not sure Gatland is brave enough to continue it.

After the first quarter, it looked like that might have been the case.

Wait a sec, you’d rather watch them try and run in try’s all day long than win a WC. :shock:

The key is to be able to grind out wins if that’s what game is needed. NZ used to want to win games by being the fastest most skillful team, waste of time unless you lift the trophy at the end. Now, we’ve learnt to do both, and the last 2 WCs would’ve been shite had we not gotten our shit sorted.

I probably need to explain I was being facetious for our antipodean members. Not only do you produce the worst TMO's in the world you have no sense of humour either.

Now please note I was also being facetious in this response.
