@868And Celtic culture spread down to Galicia, Spain and Portugal or did it come north along the coast.The basques are a bit of a mystery, though. The language is very different.
If the Irish/French ref had reffed the Scot/Wal game the result will have been different. Much better reffing - calling the offside and 'in at the side'. Ireland and England showing so much potential and excited for these 2 teams come the WC.
866. steggsyLook mate if you want to give a history lesson, fine, but best to get it rightor you look a bit of a charley.The Britons, also known as Celtic Britons or Ancient Britons, were Celtic people who inhabited Great Britain from the British Iron Age into the Middle Ages, at which point their culture and language diverged into the modern Welsh, Cornish and Bretons (among others).
Wales winning run/possible grand slam means nothing come World Cup!I see a few saying Wales think their going to win WC coming from non Welsh fans but actually the realistic Welsh fans do not think that at all. You'll always get some clowns from any country who say they will.However Wales do have a chance. As do ABs, Saffa, Oz, Ireland, Eng and a couple others.That's all. The end.
@48 Tesstickle. Sorry to disabuse you but the Welsh are not Celts. They are Ancient Britons who were marginalised by Roman invasion. The Celts were a huge bunch of very different tribes who spread across mainland Europe but never came here. I know it makes you feel special and bolsters anti Eng but pretty sure that it's not true.
What gets to me on this HYS are the sycophantic remarks from Eng fans. Would the Welsh EVER wish Eng success in anything. Stop sucking up and fight back.
@855RuckinellHow will the England players manage then? they are a lot younger and as you put it "were blowing out of their arse after 40 minutes"Stupid comment
One last thing toonie, stop blaming ref decisions for not winning, if we scored more and consistently we wouldn’t need those type of decisions to go for us. Look at yourself and the rest of your team before blaming others. Argh, so fed up with losing! And breathe....
Another exhilarating performance by the Welsh. Scots never in it. Just another step towards the inevitable World Cup success.
Gareth Davies , and the coaches, must stop the poseur box kicks, handed the ball back to Scotland time after time. Give it to Biggar to boot the case off it down to their 22 and they wouldn't of got back to the half way line with that wales defense
