A taste of things to come..?


Well, last night, a gang of us went out to see the Wales v. France match....Like the Welsh Team, we left it all a bit late, and the rush to get and eat food, which too longer to arrive, meant we had to dispatch a pile of curry, nan bread and rice in about 5 minutes flat (after getting rid of way too many bottle of wine...). Needless to say, the evening in the pub was puncuated by foul burps, which some were proud of....and the names of Menna Marsala, and Pashwari Prytherch making their way into, what will probably legendary names...

The Match was frustrating as hell to watch - how on earth did we get to be 0 - 20 at half time was beyond me. The pace was fast and furious, but the silly errors which meant that moves were not completed/executed in right way led to silly mistakes and incterception tries. The comeback was exciting, and after last weekends game against Scotland, there seem to be a genuine belief that once again we could turn the game around. However, despite, what I thought was the most amazing try, Shane Williams could not save the team, and the finishing score left me feeling frustrated that we did not have another 15 minutes left.

Dead impressed with the fitness levels...

Following the match, much merriment and laughter (and G&Ts) got us thinking about the final trip this year to Cardiff to see Italia - and after the way that they played against the Scots today, I hope that we dont give ourselves too much to do in the final quarter....
