Thank you Wales!

Really is the land of my father so not entirely anti-English - brought great cheer to an otherwise dismal telly-watching afternoon. Why, oh why can't our lot play as if they meant it for all the 80 minutes?

True True , Wales were outstanding against England , the old tactical mind of Warren played the English to a tee , the usual English High ball was neutralized by the flying welsh , and the Welsh Pack hit just as hard and was off there line like a flea on fire
The Scots Had a lot of injuries and there main play maker was injured , but they play with a lack of form by throwing the ball out wide, and the French gave a masterclass on ball handling , it felt we were going backwards, will be interesting getting Wales and England at MurrayField

There's a simile I've not encountered before. I wonder if an opportunity will arise for me to use it, and I wonder if, when that opportunity does arise, I will remember it!
