    I'm liking ABs 13+ tbh not so certain on the 19 spread tbh.

    I know this is a new ABs team and being their first test of the year they'll be a little rusty, actually traditionally we always are really rusty in our first few games of the year BUT I watched that England v Wales match and they were god awful. Especially by the 2nd half, barely could get their hands on the ball and missed some easy tackles.

    I can see the logic behind the 12 or less (banking on us being rusty) but I think Wales shitness will play into our hands.
    I'm waiting until the total match points comes out to decide what the best bet is.

    If Wales underestimate us because of the retirements they'll get smashed.

    This team has depth everywhere except perhaps the centres.

    Wales putting up a pretty good show tbh
  5. Rego RS Hutchinson

    A lot of poor execution really. The ABs have been better BUT Wales are making good use of the opportunities the ABs are presenting them. ABs should easily win the 2nd though, they'll calm down.

    Didn't get around to betting on this - regretting it now.

    Would have gone Wales +18.5
  7. Rego RS Hutchinson

    I still wouldn't be confident on that at this stage - either way, Wales are a terrible 2nd half team and the ABs will calm down. I went for lower handicaps in play.
  8. Fiery GR Smith

    They have been good so far in the second half [MENTION=2357]Rego[/MENTION]. Genuinely nervous now
  9. Fiery GR Smith

    Jesus Christ. That's a horrible attempt from Cruden
  10. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    I will crack up if we lose after writing wales off

    First 10 of the 2nd maybe but that's it. They've been terrible on defence, had a few things been executed by us the score would be a lot higher and we're already winning by 11....it was inevitable.
  13. Fiery GR Smith

    Over! Never in doubt
  14. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Forward pass my ass.
  15. Rego RS Hutchinson

    The irony etc. etc. :p
  16. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Wayne Barnes has missed so many calls, shittest ref I swear.
  17. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Naholo has been so dangerous but he needs to stop trying to make these miracle passes at the end, so much lost pill at the end of a nice run from him.
  18. Fiery GR Smith

    You called it with that sharp rugby brain of yours [MENTION=2357]Rego[/MENTION]. Too strong in the second half.
  19. Fiery GR Smith

    Now we know why we want Naholo in the team. X-factor to burn.

    Well that game went exactly how I expected. Rusty and us running away with it in the 2nd. Strictly speaking it should have been a 25 point win (that Perenara try shouldn't have been disallowed) not that it matters much. You could say that, that really was Wales' only chance this series and I'd agree, can't really see them being able to compete for a full 80 to win.

    A lot of points were left out there by us, some crucial mistakes with the try line begging but that's a bit expected with it being our first game.

    I held off with pre match bets knowing better odds would come inplay. I had -4.5 and -10.5 inplay so both got home and profited a nice $72.
