I must say. as a new team, England, even though considered the underdogs at the beginning of the match, did come into their own, putting much pressure on the Wales side for most of the second half of the match.

Bet there wiil be a few Psalm Singers in full Voice in the Valleys Tonight and a few Sheep atrembling on the Hillsides on seeing lots of men wearing Wellington Boots. (just a joke Maureen in Frank Carsons words "its the way i tell em" ) on a more serious note i think the Nations Down Under may be looking over their Shoulders as British Rugby across the board is on the Up.:thumb: :thumb:

[IMG]/forum/Images/Smilies/top.gif[/IMG] [IMG]/forum/Images/Smilies/top.gif[/IMG] Marie and Maureen, I am with you all the way as far as the 17th March is concerned. Although I consider myself an English Rose I have Welsh ancestors and always cheer Wales on when they are playing anyone other than England. I enjoy singing the Welsh National Anthem at full volume before their matches, ( that must be the Welsh blood coming through! ) and I dont want to make you jealous but I rubbed shoulders with J.P.R in the medical students bar at St.Marys Hospital in 69/70. Unfortunately, the match takes place on the wrong Saints Day but lets hope that St.Patrick is smiling on the Welsh. (He couldnt possibly smile on the French!! )

I watched the Scotland/France game this afternoon and France played their usual fast open rugby and are so dangerous making the most of any opportunity. Wales will have their work cut out when they meet.

Sorry I seem to have missed replying to your post before. In answer to your question.... No swooning, I never fancied him, and no rounds at St. Marys for me. I was at RAF Hospital Uxbridge at the time, which was very handy for visiting my rather dishy boyfriend who like JPR was a final year medical student at the time. You will be counting down the days to the 17th. I hope that you have a wonderful day down in Cardiff and will be keeping all fingers (and toes) crossed for Wales. To help you practise your singing here is a reminder of the words........ Oops!! They seem to have done a runner..... Ill see if I can catch them!

Next Saturday we are hoping to arrive at the stadium early so I can sing my heart out.

I sang my heart out and was over the moon when Alex Cuthbert scored the try right in front of where I was should have been sitting but was two feet in the air. I didnt manage to see the England match and cannot comment. I know the English posters here were hoping for a commanding French win so that England would be in with a chance of the championship but Wales ensure that would not be and were in possession of the ball for most of the match. They did miss two penalty opportunities (the ball hitting the post) but that withstanding Wales was the dominant team. Thanks to all who congratulated Wales on winning their well deserved Grand Slam - much appreciated My voice is a little horase at the moment!!!
