England v Wales - RWC

What’s worse, watching Owen Farrell near kicking 
England to a porous victory over Wales, or seeing 
Mike Brown being the dork he epitomises with his 
dog-like intimidating-the-enemy efficiency; there’s 
no rest knowing Twickenham isn’t ‘rampant leeks’ 
happiest hunting ground recently by any means - 
tho at least Dan Biggar ably kept them on track in 
adding seven penalties to help win the prize 

A Welshman I’m saying doesn’t excuse a game’s 
pleasure being abused by forward-pack thuggery, 
no less wearing the Red Rose, ‘tho Wales’d do it 
in equal aplomb - if Referees suggest they’ll let it 
be; but thankfully, th’ Welsh 28 - 25 victory came 
from the mawkish way the English played …
