A tale of two teams...

Two teams...

One team plays poorly but somehow manages to scrape a win against the team that finished third at the 2007 World Cup. This team is castigated by all and sundry.

The other team plays well but, despite several chances, manages to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory against the reigning world champions. This team is lauded by all all and sundry.

I wonder which team is happier?

Better to win ugly than be the romantic loser...I still maintain that England fans should be WAY happier than Welsh fans. England won without their A game, in spite of being outplayed and missing tackles and in spite of referee Bryce Lawrence in the first half.(Alain Rolland was whistle happy in the first half of Australia-Italy too)


I think the thing that sounds more upsetting for Welsh fans is that it sounds like a valid kick was not awarded the 3 points, it was missed by both touch judges under the posts-with use of video technology, this should not happen.
