Grand Slam Curse Strikes Again!

Mike Phillips alleged fracas outside a McDonalds nightclub has once again put the Welsh 2005 Grand Slam Curse into sharp perspective. None of the unbeaten side have escaped damage to their careers or personal lives in the short few months since the glorious winning streak in the year that brought us one of the Big Brother series. Gwlad has done some top level researching on wikipedia and Google. Apparently they are an online encyclopaedia and search engine respectively. Also, we’ve looked at what’s happened to the Wales 2005 squad.
