Same old story for us all I'm afraid Graham... looking good, looking goooood, hold on lads..... 10 mins to go, ballz. The Blackness up everything, speed, skill, accuracy and intensity in this period.

Your problem (and I've said this for a few years) is not your players, it's Gatland. He's done a good job; got you great 6N results, but Gatland-ball is not effective down south. To win their he needs to have plans B & C and he only has plan A. I really think that Wales should say "Thanks Warren, seriously, thanks a million, but we've got to move on".

I have said similar for a couple of years now but to be fair it has been different in the 2 tests so far. They have approached then with the freedom of play that we know they can do. They have thrown the ball around and scored some cracking tries as a result. In parts its the best I have seen us play for many a year. We have out flanked the Kiwis for a few tries by running them around /across the park

I am hoping they now build upon this so that we don't just revert back to 'Warrenball'.

The site we stayed on recently near Arnhem was one of the nicest - if not the nicest - sites we have ever stayed on. The owners were really friendly and the site itself was really picturesque: surrounded by woods; on the edge of national park areas; a few minutes from town; a good shop with fresh bread; several restaurants nearby....

The site didn't cram folks in either and was reminiscent of an old fashioned British site where the caravans etc were around the edge of each field/area and the middle was free for the kids to play etc. Don't get me wrong by 9.00pm latest, the site was dead quiet and remained so until 8.00am!

I couldn't rate it highly enough...

Thank you, just what the doctor ordered. I'm visiting the Reichswald Military Cemetery in a couple of weeks and have been looking for somewhere handy to stay for two nights. Camping Warnsborn sounds ideal. Less than an hour away, nice people and surroundings and good dog walking.

...and also, despite there being a number of young kids there it was deathly quiet from 9.00pm to at least 8.00am! I was surprised...very surprised!

I think its because they had loads for the kids to do so they were tired by the end of the day. They have all the walks/woods etc but also play areas and what appeared to be free loans of go karts, bikes etc for the young uns. We thought this was a good idea...
