    The original Rugby fans thread appears to have disappeared :(

    However today at 3.00pm the fine Lions of England do battle with our daffodil waving leak eating cousins over the other side of the seven in Wales

    If we win this it should set up a delicious encounter with the flamboyant cocks of France:grinning:

    And today I’m going to go out on a limb and predict an England win by lots

    The new Wales coach is no Warren Gatland and claims of planning for the 2023 World Cup is cobblers:p

    I'll watch that, just for the singing. Went to a England v Wales in Cardiff a few years ago.
    It was something else to hear the welsh singing

    Any Wales England encounter always has a brilliant atmosphere (and the others to be honest!) whether at the Millenium in Cardiff or Twickenham although The Arms Park was the only stadium on a level with the old Twickenham - enclosed wooden stands the noise was deafening:p

    Looking forward to this match, Wales v England.

    It's never been the same for me since my elderly neighbour passed away a few years ago. He was Welsh and the cheering between the party wall everytime either side scored was great fun. Really miss the old boy.

    Forgot to get the chocolate covered nuts in @OldNick :(

    They all need to get their boots on if they're going to play this kick chase game again. Poorly executed by England so far. Biggars kicking well when he occasionally has the ball.
