Sorry, this story is unavailable
Kevin,.. like I said,.. I don't like posting on these "We were hard done by" posts because people say nothing contructive,.. just "it's not fair" garbage,... so I really, really, really don't care,... write a comment about the rugby game, and go and get therapy for the injustice complex,... it's getting boring..

Even if England good have only drawn the game after converting. it still would have meant that Wales one not be going for a Grand Slam.
Thats my argument anyway. That Wales are in a position to win a grand slam because of bad officiating.
Ireland Lost, I'm over it but we all want to see Rugby officiated in a proper manner and this 6 nations it hasn't been.

@ everyone,... and I hate gettng involved in these sorts of threads but I'm making an exception here because I'm getting tired of reading the same thing week in week out,.. Ireland were hard done by.. hands up to that... They should have won that game.
England would only have got a DRAW if the try was given,.. even then, only if the coversion was lifted... but that is taking into consideration one event in 80 minutes of rugby,... it was not defining,.. and england would not have won the game based on it... both teams took hard decisions in that game,.. sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,.. it's how you accept both these two things that shows your character.
No Wales have not won anything yet,.. but take into account that the comments were made by a former Welsh International,.... to read about England,.. read an article by a former English international,.. but surly there is a little bit of masochism going on here,.. trawling for stories that wind you up so that you can comment on them.... get a grip.!

Would you say that, despite refereeing decisions, Wales would be in the position they are now?
Wales have played some bloody good rugby this season but Grand Slam winning rugby?
All I'm suggesting is the fact due to poor officiating has led to a side being one win away from a grand slam. Whether strettle grounded the ball or not (I am of the opinion he did) there was still 7 english points not spotted for a penalty try when the welshman batted the ball into touch.
I'm not whining. and i'm sorry if the tone set suggested that. My beef is with the officials, Not Wales.

Losing does hurt when winning is taken out of your control yes.
And you're right, Should be a cracking day of Rugby.
Posted 12:15 16th March 2012
Losing hurts doesn't it, but time will heal the pain and maybe your life won't be quite so bitter. You're right in that Wales have never looked like scoring tries or playing anything like a flowing game of rugby unless the ref has deliberately gone out of his way to hinder the oppostition. In fact I don't remember a single time that Wales have ever lost a close match decided by a dubious decision or the wrong bounce of a ball going against them. Certainly never has a decision blighted a game for them on the world cup stage. They really have just lucked it out every time. That thought at least must take some of the sting out of your pain. In the meantime tune in tomorrow and watch some cracking games of rugby with hopefully not too many mistakes from the officials. Who knows maybe Wales will be lucky again.
At least your not sounding arrogant, just petulant.

With Joubert as ref anything is possible, perhaps he thinks that Wales deserve to win? International reffing has never before been so inconsistent.
Posted 10:38 16th March 2012
They deserve it so far as they have won 4 out of 4.
TMO balls????? no one on the planet saw the ball you idiot!!!!
You whinge and wine all you like, but those results against Scotland and Italy show, in 50 years from now the result will stay the same, england won when they didn't deserve it.
You win games then you deserve your rewards.
Grow up and get on with it.
I hope that rugby wins on the final round of the 6 Nations!!!!

Wales Deserve nothing.
Do they deserve it because Wayne Barnes gave a penalty the wasn't. Which was even confirmed by the citing commission.
Do they deserve because they should have been playing the last 15 minutes in Dublin with 14 players.
Do they deserve it because the TMO didn't have to balls to say Strettle grounded the ball on the line.
Do they deserve it because (don't know who it was, Sorry) wales Deliberately batted the ball into touch to stop a certain try, which should have been a penalty try but the officials bottled it again.
i don't like saying this but the standard (poor standard) of refereeing is what has Wales in the hunt for a grandslam. By all rights the should have lost two already but for the officals.
Wales could be the first team in a while to win a grand slam without actually deserving it.
Posted 09:00 16th March 2012
Wales will only deserve the grand slam if they beat the 5 teams (ie a win against France tomorrow). Until then, they don't derserve anything.

Why do people accuse all of England of being arrogant...we're competetive and sometimes overconfident but I'd never say arrogant...
Posted 06:41 16th March 2012
Seriously though. This arrogant versus confident debate is really very straight forward.
English = Arrogant
Anyone else = confident
We wouldn't have the English any other way. In fact it's probably the most endearing aspect of their character. So, to all you English people out there, why not celebrate arrogance as an integral part of who you are. After all there is little else that the world looks up to you for.
Good luck to all on the weekend and may the best team in any colour win. x

Don't wish to state the obvious, but they only deserve to win the GS if they win this weekend
Posted 20:03 15th March 2012
Deserves got nothin' to do with it
