    I know Daniel Carter was highly rated at 18, but he's really only just started to realise his potential at 23.
    In a word: no.

    Henson made him look a bit silly. Literally! Can't blame Tait, he was talked up big by people who really should know better.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."

    5 Changes for England XV

    The team for France:

    1) G Rowntree (Leicester)
    2) S Thompson (Northampton)
    3) P Vickery (Gloucester)
    4) D Grewcock (Bath)
    5) B Kay (Leicester)
    6) J Worsley (Wasps)
    7) L Moody (Leicester)
    8) M Corry (Leicester)
    9) H Ellis (Leicester)

    10) C Hodgson (Sale)
    11) J Lewsey (Wasps)
    12) O Barkley (Bath)
    13) J Noon (Newcastle)
    14) M Cueto (Sale)
    15) J Robinson (Sale, capt)


    Replacements: A Titterrell (Sale), A Sheridan (Sale), S Borthwick (Bath), A Hazell (Gloucester), M Dawson (Wasps), H Paul (Gloucester), B Cohen (Northampton).

    Think Robbo has mostly made the correct calls there. His hand was forced in bringing in Vickery by Julian White's neck, Moody & Corry are two world-class loose forwards (harsh that Chris Jones misses out altogether tho, thought he was our best back-rower on the Saturday), Ellis looked far sharper than Daws when he came on, Barkley at inside-centre defintiely the call, but I don't think Noon really did much to suggest he's international-class last week; Ollie Smith again unlucky to miss out IMHO.

    Good to see Henry Paul back in the 22 too.

    Humph. Well, to paraphrase the great Paul Weller, the wine's gone flat & the pasta's gone cold: 19-7 to TheTaffs at the break.

    A try at the death from Martin Williams. Scored by grounding the ball on the padding of the goalpost! You don't see that too often; last one I can recall was Phil De Glanville for us v The ABs in the '99 WC. We lost that day, so hoping that's an omen!

    I see Gavin Hairgel has promoted himself; he's wearing gold boots now! Nice to see him drop the b0llock for the Italian try! Bitter, moi?!

    Well fair play to The Taffs, they looked pretty useful second half. Six tries in all, their backs and loose forwards really looking ok.

    I love a stat & the Beeb just trotted out a good 'un: that was Wales' first back-to-back wins in the 5/6 Nations for 11 years! Bummer is they won it that year!

    Yeh they probably will win it this year! They have really improved over the last few years and they perhaps deserve to win it too

    I can't get over the fact that Henry Paul is playing rugby union for England. He is a blatent kiwi. He has played rugby league for NZ, his brother still plays for NZ.

    There is nothing English about him..besides one of his grandparents being English. I don't understand why, when he decided to pursue a rugby union career he wouldn't want to come home and play in his home country of NZ.

    The only reason I can think of is money.

    That'd be the one!

    I'm hoping Sonny Bill Williams has that crucial English grandparent too!

    Actually the papers over here reckon Wigan Warriors are after him as a replacement for Andy Farrell if he goes to Union. Apparently he's outta contract with The Bulldogs at the end of the NRL season.

    Na he will be at the Bulldogs for at least another five years. He has already said that he loves the club and that is where his future is.
