Bushy, bushy , bushy. Are you getting confused with how six Welshmen chaperoned De Allende over their try line to give up their spot in the final without so much as a whimper?
Ford v De Allende will be like Catt v Lomo !Can’t wait🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦
@354 - I agree with your sentiment but have you seen that in this world cup? I haven't.
Eddie Jones commented that there are 23 players in a match and that sometimes he chooses to picks his finishers first. He has also invited journalists to join the modern game.
If you're looking for a rugby role model - or any role model at that - George Ford is it. Unassuming, modest, hard working and constantly trying to improve. He always gives 100% and lets his actions do his talking. Very impressive young man fully deserving his selection. Good luck George.
Cipriani is still a better 10 than both of them which is why he was voted player of the season. And Ford needs to tactically kick from hand better. While Ford can kick well, he keeps giving up possession too easily with poor kicks that don't test opposition back 3. He can't be a true great until he sorts that basic feature of his game.
@346 USo you've responded to "little man" with "some aplomb", you are a constant source of fun.All this hys BS seems to mean a lot to you uboat cos this weekend means nowt me, catch up again soon.
As a Scot who lives and plays Rugby in England, I can honestly say that 80% of the people I speak to are all in agreement that Ford is a far better 10 than Farrell, this story is nonsense. Farrell is a truly world class centre but an average 10 at international level with no ability to change a game when on the back foot. England's best performances come with Ford at 10.
If the Boks win on Saturday they will be World cup winners and still SH champions and Wales are still NH champions regardless.If the Boks win by more than 3, which they should then England fans can bow down to us again.

343. Posted byovalballLaughed till I cried, neither are anywhere near World class, still a decent joke though.
They're both still under the shadow of Cipriani.
How many naysayers have watched any of this tournament?“Ford can’t tackle”...really? 93% is er...“Farrell’s done nothing”.... please report to EJ. We need a player of your insight and class, why are you hiding behind a keyboard?“De Allende will run through him”. Biggar’s not playing Sat morning.“Rolling around...”. Are you volunteering to take a slap from a Bok lock? Please, come on down.
@345 There have been 1 or 2 posts I have reported during my time posting little man, and yours isn't one of them! Prefer to either: a) ignore it and leave it for others to see or b) answer it. Which I did with yours (with some aplomb I think!) Hope you enjoy the weekend and if, please note if, we win hope it doesn't spoil the rest of your year (well....)
@334 UI am not surprised that within 10 mins your little fingers were referring my post @329. All l did was query why your posts continually belittle and deride the contributions of rugby fans. E.g. 308 and 319 to name but two. Catch up again soon no doubt.
@321 Scarletbard,Fair play to you mate. Some Welsh fans will want a british winner, others would rather a rival didn't win. No problem with either of them.It is the trash talkers claiming England dont deserve to be there who are an embarrassment. Beating Aus and NZ back to back deserves respect, even if grudging.If rugby gives up on respect we may as well all watch football instead.
George Ford is a world class number 10 Owen Farrell is a world class number 10Sometimes for tactical reasons you play on or the other at number 10And sometimes you keep one back for later in the game to change the emphasisAll very normal all very much part of modern rugby Unfortunately the bbc just talk utter nonsense about rugby Please get on and enjoy a world class player
The big difference is we have the back row to cover George Ford in defence. He is the right guy in there for our attack. Now we don’t have to worry about being steam rollered on first phase ball as Curry or Underhill cover. That will be something SA try on Saturday as pollard is huge, and has score plenty of tries bulldozering over down his channel.... Come on England.
#332 Tension building? What is that, then? Bungalow? Townhouse? High rise apartment block? 😂
