Front Row to be Increased to Four?

Team Wales selectors have been blasted by Graham Turner, the Newport Gwent Dragons track suit consultant. “There’s an Osprey, a Blue and a Scarlet in the national front row”, snarled Tuner. “Why can’t there be a Dragon in there too? We have four regions, so why not allocate a place in the front row to each? We have Aled Brew over here near to the English border and there’s no reason why someone like him couldn’t do a job as the fourth man at the coal face.”
“I know what’s going on here”, continued Turner in surprisingly frank mood, “It’s racism. Because we are almost in England the Welsh won’t select us. All that will come of this will be to cement head coach Warren Gatland’s place in history.”

“We asked ourselves – can we dub George North the Welsh Jonah Lomu?” recalls one of the Western Dandy’s spurious nonsense correspondents.  “Surely not, we thought.  In the 15.6m pages of rugby effluent we’ve created since Lomu’s debut in 1994, we MUST have dubbed somebody that already.  15.6m pages is a lot to sort through, so we borrowed a computer and the Internet told us to proceed.”

In other news, Jean de Villiers – the South African Scott Gibbs – is looking forward to this weekend’s clash against Wales at the Millennium Stadium, and will be making the crossing by car ferry from his holiday home in Cork.  “I shill be droiving theer in moy blick Jiguar,” he commented.
