Bradley Manning, currently serving in a maximum security prison and suspected of leaking state secrets to WikiLeaks, is eligible to play for Wales, through his Welsh mam. “Well, our injury crisis is getting more crisis-y by the day.” Stated Warren Gatland. “Does he play prop? I’ve already sounded out various people for the vacant tight head spot including Phil John, Cai Griffiths, Peter Francis, Stu Francis, Francis of Assisi and Adam Jones.” added Gatland.
Team Wales have expressed worries that Manning may divulge line out calls to the opposition but then they remembered that we play as if they already know them. When asked how they would ensure Manning makes training on time, Gatland pointed to the 1978 precedent where the whole of the A Team played in the pack against Scotland.
