You can take the Welshman out of the girl…

I took arm-chair journeys to Rome, Paris & Cardiff on Saturday, accompanied by a box of beer, bread & cheese and an Englishman.
My responses were built on emotion as well the rugby (of course, isn’t that what being a supporter is all about?).
Delighted for the Italians to beat Ireland in Rome. We used to write-off the Italians but hey we don’t want a 5+1 nations tournament do we.
Pleased for France to beat Scotland, sorry my Perth friends but I have become a real Francophile. The French squad apparently get little time to play as a team, but they pulled it off for this one, if only a little sweetener on their wooden spoon.
And that wonderful Wales 30 England 3! Despite my undoubted Englishness, when it comes to rugby I was thrilled to see Wales take the Grand Slam again. Somehow winning just means more in Wales, to more people. Da iawn, boys!
