Wasn't that the funniest ending to a rugby match? The look on the red's fasces when they realised what a terrible mistake they'd made. I don't normally watch sports, but I always admire the Italians in whatever they do, so i thought I'd give it an hour. I was enthralled by the spectacle, but the ending just made me laugh and laugh. Any of you sporting types explain why the Welsh used the tactic of kicking the ball out when they could easily have drawn the match? Is it to ensure they win something called the wooden spoon? Whatever subtle strategies I'm missing, still a very humouress game when all is said and done.
Is rugby still the welsh national sport or have they changed it?

When did Wales beat England last?
Its not racist to want your own country to win,and have a good time watching it, trouble is, some people behave badly.

You're not missing subtle strategies, you're missing a brain. The referee told James Hook that Wales had another ten seconds to play, which meant that had we won the line-out, we would have held possession for another attack and possibility of scoring a try to win the game. The full-time whistle can only be blown when the ball is dead.
However, the referee blew the final whistle as soon as the ball went out because the video referee told him time was up and that a mistake had been made. So the referee inadvertently cost Wales at least a draw; it had nothing to do with "subtle strategies" as you so hilariously put it.

Hey Magic man, thats perhaps why Potato picker is what he is, slightly uninformed re the rules of international rugby...........and picks spuds for a living!
The referee and the video ref made an horrendous error which has cost Wales dearly indeed.
Still, i'm looking forward to the game.

Hello and good morning spud collecter!
If you play the bloody game..................how come you don't know the bloody rules????
Should you not be available to stand me a large libation this Saturday night ( in the Ship )...............albeit, gracefully annointing my cabeza ( spanish ) with said drink.
I will stand your goodself all your intake of best local bitter, should Clem Morgan ( god rest his good soul ) appear to serve each and every one of them.............whilst explaining the basic rules of the game!

Many apologies to you Spud Picker, i got my posts all cocked up and should have been addressing Lewdaunce ( or whatever his name ). Please accept them gracefully and i will purchase said pint and pour it over my own head.........

Thankyou mr beast apology accepted and i hope to pick that pint up when the ship reopens.

Didn't know the ' Ship ' was closed.
When it does reopen you may have to wait a-while for the pint as i won't be revisiting Solva ( 1st time in 30yrs ) until August sometime. But when i do i will pay and leave a pint behind the bar for a Mr Potato Picker. As you will do your goodself should we spank you this afternoon.
Enjoy the game whatever!!!!

Its 20.16hrs over here and the match finished 2 mins ago.
To tell you the truth, we weren't in it from the start. A well deserved win for you.
I'll get you the pint in August.
