    Pretty weak refereeing from Walsh when Thomas hit Barnes off the ball; yes Oz had scored under the posts but it was late & Thomas made no attempt to use his arms. Yellow at least.

    Wales score as I type; too little to alter the outcome one suspects. Hook adds the extras: 25-10.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Ha. The dullard compounds his error by not carding Latham for taking out Williams off the ball. Two wrongs now making a right, clearly.

    In my bias opinion, the Latham hit was nowhere near as bad as the Thomas one. A little nervous now, Wales have come out firing in the 2nd half, and our attack isn't clicking nearly as well as it was earlier. Clearly missing Mortlock.

    EDIT: LATHAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh, and thanks Jones

    Well, that'll settle those nerves a tad then. Had to be the bloke who shouldn't be on the pitch too.

    Jones, S made a horrible horlicks of the bomb. That's the ball game.

    & Latham's hit wasn't as nasty, but it was more cynical. Both cards for me.

    Jones isn't Wales' first choice 5/8?

    Just saw a stat, 13/3 handling errors is a partially worrying stat, if it were against the All Blacks or Springboks i dare say we would've been punished a lot more. Then again, i suspect we wouldn't have been as adventerous in attack.

    Erk, as i type Mitchell gets a card, fair enough, the fact that he pulled out should be in his favour when he goes to the judiciary though.

    Debateable. He has been for a while, but young Hook is seen as the anointed one over in the valleys.

    Anyone mind explaining why Sharpe was carded (have no idea, but i assume it was something to do with him not rolling away or something?)

    EDIT: Good win that, although our 2nd half was fairly scrappy and we'll definitely need to improve that as we approach the Quarters.

    He was sitting on the player with the ball so that the ball couldn't be placed, and thus Wales couldn't play the ball.
    Or something.

    That Barnes (?) bloke for Australia looks like a really good prospect, he looked like an awesome runner, and when he gets a bit stronger and older he could be a great player.

    The thing is, after not penalising Thomas he couldn't then penalise Latham for the same thing, so they cancelled each other out before the Drew Mitchell/Nathan Something yellows.

    Have to say Mortlock's challenge on Thomas was the highlight of the match for mine. Was basically a bigger guy starting on a smaller guy in a pub, only the smaller guy has a big mate who then does the retribution.

    Haha yeah loved that, Gareth Thomas is just a thug tbh, a cynical piece of work on Barnes I think it was. I always loved watching Welsh and SAfrican people getting smashed.
