Wales v England Six Nations Rugby 14th February 2009.

After finding the Iceland Gull I went home to watch the Six Nations and hopefully a Welsh victory against the old enemy Ingerland....

As usual the predictable bias from John Inverdale and Austin Healy was clear to see, and listening to the pundits(minus of course Jiffy) you would have thought that England were favourites to win the match minus the fact that Wales were the current Grand Slam champions! How wrong there were!!

With Martin Johnson managing the England Team, it wasn't surprising that England had come to Cardiff with negative ideas of how to play the game (ally Leicester Tigers) and as expected England played a very defensive game.

In the end the game was of a war of attrition between the two packs of forwards, but it was great to see that Wales were the composed team and ran out worthy winners in the end 23-15.
Although Joe Worsley won man of match for his defensive duties, I thought Gethin Jenkins, Ian Gough and Ryan Jones were very impressive in the Welsh pack and have probably booked there places for the up coming Lions tour to South Africa.

So two victories so far for Wales in the championship, and up next is the Allez Bleus (France) in Paris, maybe another great match to come?...
