Wales’ lineout captain and gay pride mascot Jonathan Thomas has backed the Light Brigade to bounce back from disappointment, once they’ve “ironed out some basic errors.” The crack outfit, whose last run out was in the Crimean War, were famously hammered by an unfancied Russian unit.
“War is about winning and loosing. And Katherine Jenkins.” mused the sage. “Really, just those few loose canon, and some bad decision making across the park, cost them the match,” dribbled Thomas. “If it weren’t for that, they’d be one up in the rubber and looking for a series victory.”
Thomas, who holds a history degree from the University of Maesteg, was able to share some further historical perspective: “ Their coach, the Earl of Cardigan, was cruelly dumped but went on the invent the sandwich.”
