Bloody Great Fishes are Wales
Well done to the Welsh. Even the most ardent Irish supporters can't begrudge Wales their victory celebrations tonight. The first half Welsh opportunistic try by Gethin Jenkins was crucial, but equally so were the deflected drop goal by Gavin Henson and his penalty off the post in the first half. This first half lead proved unassailable despite the best efforts of BOD, Maggs, Dempsey & Murphy etc.
Stuart, you have earned the right to do unspeakable things to your inflatable sheep tonight.
England look impressive with the ball in the backs and, despite some stuttering moments, ran out worthy winners against the Sweaties. England's individual brilliance is not currently matched collectively and when that does happen, I believe that England will re-assert themselves in a European context. Everybody else, in the meantime, has already played catch up big style.
I managed to get a decent turn on both games, which repaired the damage done when England failed to record a second half score against France.
It's ironic that the missing component from the Welsh physiology can be found advertised on their shirts ! Have a great night all those whose spiritual home is to the west of the River Severn. If you beat the French at the Stade de France, you deserve it.
