Good grief WoZ, it's not Fiji's fault they won, the boys done good. It was the fault of a number of Welshmen that we lost. I am not naming them here, this is not the forum for it, but I will say those of us who said at the time of the original appointment that it was a ghastly mistake, have been proved right.

Collective nouns of this type, around here, are singular.
Team has lost.
Crowd is unruly.

At least Bob you have a change of coach to look forward to - here we decide to give ours a new 4 year contract before the competition started!

Reality is that the 6 Nations is grossly over-hyped & that collectively we couldn't put a pack together that would be able to compete with the southern hemispere teams....

Liam, the problem is that reality has nothing to do with Welsh Rugby. Every one of us could pick a better team than any incumbent coach, and play in it ourselves.

Sorry WoZ, you can be coach though. We will have your teeth removed and seats fitted.

Tighthead or hooker? I thought you would have been clever enough to be a back. I was a winger, sigh (exit stage right, sobbing).

May I buy the digestif you'll need when you eat all those words, WoZ? Perhaps you should try the various brands of Calvados, as you will have little else to do while you're topside.

But to be fair, the lads from Downunder put up a spirited fight. I really quite enjoyed the match.

Oh, I hope you enjoy the sightseeing while you're in France.

Undoubtedly very soon there will be some funny self-effacing tvcs about such matters.
