    A lot of youngsters in the team… 1985 + …that’s always a good sign…

  • “Warren Fury”

    Now THAT’S a cool name.

    Always fun watching a game against Wales:

    “Jones cuts in-field and slips the ball to Jones! Jones brought down at the 22 but just manages to off-load to Jones who has Jones on his outside!”
