Yesterday was a day when it was great to be Welsh my brother had a ticket lucky b*****d and phoned me 30 seconds from the end to share the moment. The noise was literally unbelieveable.Beowulf said:In my last post I mentioned Ivor Emanuel, what about other Welsh folk that have contributed to the fame of their nation, feel free to join in:-
Richard Burton, Harry Seycombe, Ivor the Engine, Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Alled Jones, Ruth Maddock, The Witch out of 'Charlton and the Wheelies', JPR Williams, Max Boyce and Charlotte Church
It's the coaching, Wales were in the same position just a few short months ago. The players were always talented, indeed 12 of the current squad won the Grand Slam in 2005, the difference is the input of the coaches in engendering self belief, fitness, discipline and how to intelligently manage a game, thankfully without resorting to the "stick it up your jumper and look for penalties" style of the English.Beowulf said:I however wonder why England were so bad? There were some excellent players in the team, but they seemed devoid of passion and swamped with doubt.
