  • Description

    IN 19 DEVASTATING MINUTES SPANNING HALF-TIME, THE WELSH RUGBY UNION TEAM BUILT UP A COMMANDING LEAD OVER ENGLAND...A LEAD WHICH ENGLAND NEVER THREATENED. WALES WON THE MATCH 30-9 TO WIN THE TRIPLE CROWN AND THEY FIVE NATIONS CHAMPIONSHIP.

    ENGLAND SCORED FIRST, AFTER 24 MINUTES, WHEN FULL-BACK HILLER KICKED A PENALTY GOAL. BOTH TEAMS WERE DOGGED IN DEFENCE, AND THEY FIRST PALF WAS MARKED BY ENGLAND'S DETERMINED ATTACK BEING HELD BY THE WELSH. PLAYING WITH THE WIND AFTER WINNING THE LOSS. ENGLAND HAS SEEKING TO BUILD UP A LEAD IN THE FIRST HALF. BUT JUST BEFORE HALF TIME, THE WELSH ATTACK BEGAN, IN THE WAKE OF HILLER'S GOAL.

    IN REPLY, THE WELSH BEGAN A SERIES OF BRILLIANT ATTACKS WHICH LED TO A SPECTACULAR TRY FIVE MINUTES BEFORE HALF TIME.

    AFTER THE BREAK, THE WELSH CONTINUED THEIR ATTACK AND MORE THE ENGLAND DEFENCE TO PIECES. A SERIES OF SPARKLING RONS KEPT THE CROWD ON ITS TOES, AFTER WALES WENT INTO THE LEAD WITH A PENALTY IN OWED BY JARRET. SOON JARRET SCORED WITH ANOTHER KICK, AND THEN AS SAD DEFENDERS REELED UNDER CONTINUOUS ATTACKS. FLY-HALF JOHN MADE A SPLENDID TRY WHICH JARRET CONVERTED.

    BY THIS TIME, JUST FOURTEEN MINUTES AFTER HALF TIME, THE WELSH ??? IN COMPLETE CONTROL, AND THEY FINISHED THE GAME PLAYING LIKE A CLUE SIDE. JUST TO MAKE THE SCORE BETTER. THEY SCORE AGAIN TEN MINUTES BEFORE THE FINAL WHISTLE.

    IT'S FOUR YEARS SINCE THE WELSH LAST WON THE TRIPLE CROWN. TODAY'S MATCH SHOWED THAT THEIR DEDICATED PREPARATION ALL SEASON HAS REARED A DIVIDEND WHICH WILL LONG BE REMEMBERED. THEY HAD ALREADY BEATEN THE OTHER TEAMS, SCOTLAND AND IRELAND, FOR THE TRIPLE CROWN. AND FRANCE FOR THE FIVE NATIONS CHAMPIONSHIP.
