It's difficult to win when the ref is so completely against you.

Australian forwards consistently lying on the ground ... usually the wrong side ... and never penalised !

Report big_dunc June 23, 2012 7:46 AM BST
Can't blame the ref. Wales could and should have won regardless. Had the ball on the Aus 22 with 5 to play, gave away a soft pen, marched back 10 for lip, then gave away a really cheap penalty on their own 10m line when that was the one thing they couldn't afford to do.

Wales slow to get going in the 1st test after half the squad arrived late.

For me today was all about a biased ref.

at least 2 high tackles went unpenalised. am sure if we had made a high tackle he'd have give them a pen and us a yellow.

It wasn't just the pens against Wales but the ones he didn't give against Australia.

constant lying on the ground sealing off which is what Wales were penalised for early in the game.

Wales need to find a decent captain to communicate with the ref. Right or wrong buttering up the ref has a huge influence on marginal calls.

And if England do win the six-nations they will restore credibility by......... getting beaten time after time in SA?

Six-nations winners have been taking beatings down under for many years and at least Wales came close to winning. Not sure how many better chances the NH will get than that tour though, Wales certainly blew it big style.

Whats the obsession with Priestland? Gatland is usually fairly ruthless when it comes to axing players. Fair enough Priestland had a great WC but he was average before it and has been since. I don't think Biggar is the answer unless Wales want to copy the Saffer game plan.
