Warren Gatland has announced a one off test at the start of May against a giant cloud of Icelandic volcanic ash. “It’s an excellent way to increase revenue, flog the players a little more and cash in on a major media event” explained the happy (for a New Zealander) Wales coach, yesterday.
“The scandinavians are traditionally a fierce opponent. They are very strong and pillagey.” explained Gatland. When asked where the cloud would cause most problems he replied “in the commentary box, mainly. Although it is very good in the air and will cover the pitch better than Martyn Williams. Which is why we must not let it settle.” The Western Mail, after reading around several chatsites, believes that Wales are to close the roof thus giving the home side a distinct advantage. The winner of the match then goes onto play an away game against El Niño in the Autumn.
