Down to 14 men we are really in trouble now.

All boils down to poor coaching and lack of composure.
Probably poor selections as well.

In another nutshell ;)

10 - 42 when it could and should have been a lot different.

How many better players were left out?

I don’t know. The performance has deteriorated so sharply that they really don’t deserve to be close. This has been the worst kicking out of hand I have ever seen from a Welsh team.

Why do they persevere with Davis? I've seen nothing to redeem him today or previously against Oz.

All the replacement forwards made a positive difference.

For what it is worth that should be a red card.

What a cheap shot from the AB centre. They have won the game in the final minute and he does that.

10 - 42 to Baby AB's.
Really, the difference was composure and doing the basics right.
What the hell is wrong with our coaches?
Wales have too many brain farts on the field instead of knowing when to stick to basics.
Very disappointing because the match could have been and should have been a lot closer.
AB's were not great but they just stuck to a game plan and made fewer mistakes.
Surely it is not brain surgery?
The only area where I thought we were physically deficient was our loose forwards.
Time and again they were just swatted away.

So for a semi-final we need South Africa to beat France with no bonus point for the French, and a win v Japan with a big points margin. Sound about right?

We have to sort out the issues I've raised first. If we don't it is futile getting to the Semis.
It could very well just be another embarrassing defeat.

A semi-final guarantees a top 4 finish, and probably means another game v New Zealand then the loser of England v South Africa.

Looking at the tables at the moment, in the play-off games for 5-8 we would probably meet Italy followed by one of Argentina or France I think.

Not sure which is better really, finish top 4 or have a couple of winnable games ...

OK, I have many question marks, here is one of them.
Wales player profile of Dan Davis 1.85m 111 kgs (which is bullshit)
Scarlet's player profile of Dan Davis 1.81m 96 kgs (which IMHO the correct when you see him on the field compared with other players)
Wales player profile of Lennon Greggains 1.88m 102 kgs.
Dragons player profile of Lennon Greggains 1.87m 96 kgs (I can only find his U18 stat)

My question for the coach is, why persevere with someone who is being brushed aside at every ruck when you have a bigger stronger man to bring on?
