This is the first (perhaps of many) blogs from yours truly. I feel I should start by proving the Welsh do have a sense of humour, particularly when the Welsh rugby team are in their all-conquering mode. Just as a reminder, in case you have forgotten, England 19 – Wales 26, Wales 30 – Scotland 15; Wales 47 – Italy 8; Ireland 12 – Wales 16. The triple-crown for Wales, and we should also mention Cardiff City and their progress to the FA Cup semi-final.

Alas, I must admit that these outstanding examples of creativity were not my work, but one of the many highly intellectual emails that bounce around my rugby friends.
