    the way i see it the welsh were clueless in the first half,Ireland got into them and the welsh didn't know how to respond,like rabbits caught in the headlights of a car.

    Ireland on the other hand had a plan and stuck to it,get at the welsh,get right in their face and it worked,if Ireland had played in the second half as they did in the first it could have been a whole lot worse for the welsh.
    Ireland showed the welsh team no respect,just got on with the game and walked away with an easy victory,the welsh have been found out.
    look at their result's over the last 8 games played 8 lost 8 and losing five games at home on the trot a record for the welsh,the current 6 nations champions are a shadow of what they were at the last 6 nations,they have gone backwards as a team,look at G North(although a great player) it took 34 mins before he touched the ball.
    some blame the ref for the welsh loss,that is just making excuses for a bad performance by the welsh,they showed a spark in the second half but the game was out of reach after the first half with the irish walking to the dressing room 20 points up.some blame Gatland not being there,this i can partly agree with ,where has Gatland been since the 2012 six nations,i know where,looking after the one thing that matters to him,himself,he has no more interest in the welsh team than i have,he has proven this by managing the lion's tour,while the greatest competition(in the northern hemisphere) the six nations is going on,he should be managing the welsh team,but where was he yesterday,sat in the crowd watching as manager of the lions tour.
    where will Gatland be after the lions tour,back at the helm of the welsh team,but its to late the damage has been done,Wales could have been the greatest team in the northern hemisphere but watching them yesterday, i felt embarrassed for them.
    and to make matters worse they got France next week in Paris,could be nine international losses on the trot,one away from their all time record of ten losses on the trot :Sad:

    Tend to agree too
    but however I feel about Wales Performance:cry:
    which at best was inept
    or the refereeing standard
    which at best was inept (But Inept for both teams):cry:


    I still wish Wales all the best for Next week.
    anybody that plays the French has my support
    and Auntie Gwen would have a lot to say if they didnt.

    Jonathan Davies summed it up. He said,

    "The Welsh team thought the kick off was 2:30 and didn't turn up 'til then".

    It is Easy to blame Rob Howley for everything
    but the fact remains the whole team played
    with a total lack of

    angerdd ymdrech Call it what you will passion effort
    and those who were on the pitch are to blame too.:Sad:

    You are right - it's not all down to Howley. The players were crap as well.

    Howley though has that Gareth Jenkins air of stupidity about him though.
