Re: The Official Welsh Rugby Thread

I've registered at npr...so I can continue to howl pointlessly into the ether about the Dragons, and occasionally be amused/irritated/horrified by you bunch of plums. Hopefully see some of you there.

Perhaps unsurprising but Dragons let Brandon Nansen go. Shame - if the guy had stayed fit he looked useful. We desperately need to sign a couple of locks now.

If we get Will Rowlands as is being rumoured then I'll be prepared to downgrade the Blues from weapons grade arseholes to just over the counter arseholes.
