Like another famous soccer coach Gareth Jenkins the Wales rugby supremo has found what he considers to be a vital asset to take the national team forward into the world cup series starting next month. After the teams dismal performances against England and France a new approach was needed.

To combat the criticism of his coaching skills Mr Jenkins scoured the world to find a new star to take to France. Dia the donkey, located in a refuge in Albania, has all the necessary skills required to fit easily in the Welsh Squad.

'Although he was born in Albania, he qualifies because his grandfather was born in a farm in Carmarthenshire' said Gareth.'We managed to get his registration put through the WRU as fast as possible and now he is in training in the Rhonnda.'

When I visited the training camp a couple of days ago Dia looked pretty fit in his Welsh strip. Although his tackling seemed to be a bit weak, his place kicking was superb. Naturally he will look a bit odd on the field as he will face away from the ball at penalties and conversions, as he can only kick backwards. The players seem to have taken a liking to him, and he gets plenty of swedes when he takes a break to keep his strength up.

'He will fit in really well', said the captain, 'he doesn't take much to feed and we have limited his beer intake to 4 pints of SA every day, which is a lot lower than he had back in Albania'.

With their first game only a couple of weeks away we all look forward to Dia's first outing.

Make the welsh guru's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
