The difference between the English and the Welsh

When asked for their predictions for their teams' progress in the 2011 Rugby World Cup the English fan said, 'I don't think we'll get to the final'; the Welsh fan said, 'I'll be glad if we get through the first stage.'

First game for England tomorrow and for Wales on Sunday. England has an easy group; Wales has a hard group. Well, in theory it shouldn't be that hard but we have Fiji and Samoa and both have caused us problems in the past.

But the past is gone; this is today.

The Welsh team is fitter than it's ever been. If we can just get the line-out sorted ...

By the way, that's a purely extraneous photo of Dan Carter (New Zealand All Blacks).

we were lucky to win the first one... I was told off for "screaming" at the telly... I was merely offering some words of encouragement ;-)

Husband tends to be quite quiet. I'm the one who screams and leaps up and down!
