    Living on the edge.

    Or has lost a finger?



  • It's a double double cross. Wales will be in disarray.



  • Don't they have another 12 in the country?

  • What's the deal with Biggar and Liam Williams' fall from grace?



  • My crystal ball tells me that Australia will win this.

    I can't / won't predict on this one. I reckon it could go either way.
    Not a big fan of the Wallabies this year, so i will be breaking with the SH brotherhood support club and roaring for the boys from the valleys.

    Not a fall from grace.

    Gatland has kept pretty much a winning side together.

    Strong bench for us.

    Going to go against the masses and say Wales is ready to absorb Australian pressure, be patient, and be accurate when given the opportunities.

    Wales by 4-8.



  • Josh Adams ahead of Liam Williams looks an eccentric selection. What is going on?



  • Wales has to beat Aust at some stage.



  • Wallabies have won their last 13 tests vs Wales. Wallabies to win.



  • Yup as much as I love Wales (better half did a degree in Cardiff, great times!) they have a canary yellow blind spot. More kiwis in the 15 might've helped, but two's not enough 😉

    This stage.

    Wales by 4-8.

    Pessimist. If Wales win it will be by more than 9 points, and I back them to finally break that streak.

    We're in complete disarray, we've got few ideas, and just can't seem to fire at the right moments or for long enough.

    Therefore, having typed out all that, the fucking shunts will probably put in their best performance of the last 3 years and thrash Wales by 30.

    Then lose to Italy.



  • Come on, it's Wales v Australia. You already know the script. Wales enter the game as probably favourites based as much on the disarray the Wallabies are in as their own form (which isn't bad).

    They then proceed to play 65 minutes of pretty good rugby, without blowing the scoreboard open.

    They will then make 2 pretty poor errors, allowing the Wallabies to jag back the lead with a few minutes left.

    Wales will launch one last attack that looks very promising until an inconceivably stupid error or penalty finishes the game with them just behind on the scoreboard once again.

    'twas ever thus
