If only the welsh had 14 other players like Dan :-)

Had a great game, really does need to cut the backchat out though, embarrassing. Refs really need to do something about it

A quality player but lets himself down by his shouting and arguing throughout the game.

Yes, very noticeable today. Refs need to be pinging those that do it.

Thoroughly enjoyable and eventful test match. Think Alun Wyn Jones was particularly annoyed by that defeat. That pleases me.

Dan was outstanding today but he does need to control his emotions a little bit better. Iíd like to see referees take a much stronger line on this stuff.

Glad the feeling on this board is that Biggar is close to the mark and some ref is and should walk him back
Great game fof the neutral and Biggar played his part in that.

The back chat seems rife through out
Even the commentators
Little Jiffy in particular
Calling for red cards and penalty try
So Boring

Sadly the commentary on the BBC has been a nonsense for a long time.

They make the odd effort, Warburton last year season was brilliant to listen to, Dylan was great and think OíConnell is also pretty good this season. The rest need to be pensioned off Iím afraid.

Not a huge fan of OíConnell myself. Heís got the knowledge but I find him incredibly dull to listen to but he has just started. Dylan and Sam I agree are good.

O'Connell also said that AR Karl Dixon was an ex Northampton Saints scrum half!

Then we can have 16 referees on the pitch. If he carries on like this heís going to get a worse reputation than Sexton. Wish a referee would have the proverbial to ping and card him.

I thought Biggar was superb today. He really gave Wales opportunities and go-forward. Sadly, it seems to me that their midfield canít take advantage. He makes holes, creates space and pinpoint kick passes, but instead of exploiting the gaps and overlaps they cut back inside into traffic or go to ground with the ball. It doesnít help when after a couple of phases 12, 13 & 11 have been replaced by 6, 2 & 5. Parkes and Tompkins will never build any kind of midfield relationship if, as today, they are 50 yards apart for most of the game.

Yes he played well today but was a total embarrassment with his round ball constant appealing and gesticulating. It has to be stopped ASAP and refs need to YC p,Ayers who give back chat & this sort of immature appealing. It is going too far now & DB one of the worst.

ITV punditry was dire then BBC not much better.

Biggar was a complete bell end (again) today. Should have been yellow carded.

Yep, very unfortunate incident yesterday. Hope they rest him for the next two.

Itís pretty hard to argue with that description of him KingoftheHill. He is such a good player he doesnít need to act like that, trying to buy a penalty by kicking the ball at the French guy was incredibly footballesque. Does he act like his for Saints or is reserved for his Welsh performances? Either way, he is going to cost a team a referees are justifiably going to lose any sympathy with regard to on field decisions.
