I was lucky enough to see them last time they played in Cardiff - when they didn't do the Haka! Gutted!!! Hopefully, the Welsh RFU will have sorted themselves out this time.

Very jealous of those going to the game, we usually go but for various reasons are not going this time.

My husband (welsh) and I (kiwi) will be watching the game in neutral territory (London) fighting over which jersey (red or black) our daughter will be wearing!!

C'mon the All Blacks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ageing English? Apart from a VERY injury enforced call-up of Duncan Bell the oldest player is 31, so I'm not sure where you get that from! AB's without Carter will be a tight game - although I do fancy them to continue their winning ways over the Welsh. With a new look England side, absolutely anything could happen against the Aussies! I secretly worry we could be on the wrong end of a bit of a stuffing, particularly with the Kangaroo-botherers having the recent Bledisloe Cup experience behind them to get them clicking as a team.

Sorry I meant Johnny Wilkinson is a bit of an aging backward step for that position. Still remember the awful wild pass he made against Wales that let them win! Thought this series was all about trying out new blood.

Nah, Wilko will still be around for the next World Cup (just) and there really isn't anyone presenting a serious challenge for the position, so I don't think having him there is a problem. I suspect it's the same reason why Wales are still persisting with Jones, who is a year or two older, at FH - I think it is a good position to have an experienced head, particularly if you've got a good sparky IC to compliment it (as both sides have with Roberts and Geraghty).

In all honesty, looking at the England squad I can imagine it, with a couple of changes for developing players, form and injuries, being pretty much what we go to the 2011 WC with. It seems to have about the right balance of power and flair to make the best of the England playing style; just hope it gets given time to gel even if the worst happens tomorrow!

Yes the problem is TIME the doom merchants were after Johnsons blood after only a couple of games! Gone are the days when Union spectators were ex players!
