image for Wales Defeated by Fiji in Rugby World Cup, England to Blame
What Welsh Rugby fans describe as Bastards

Following their shock defeat to Fiji, eliminating them from the Rugby World Cup and coach Gareth Jenkins long overdue sacking, the Welsh Rugby Union has spoken to the media about the events leading up to Saturday's darkest hour.

Drunken Welshmen interviewed in Walkabout, St Mary's Street in Cardiff after the game pinned responsibility of their team's defeat down to the culmination of hundreds of years of English oppression.

"First they force us down into coal mines so that they can power their steamships and locomotive engines, then they close the coal mines down leaving us without jobs. Then they make us learn the Welsh language in school and make it compulsory like, and then finally to just round things off, they make us lose to Fiji in the Rugby World Cup. Is there no end to our humiliation?" said one man wearing a WRU jersey.

"They 'ates us," added another Welshman. "Especially their English Prime Minister, Gordon Brown,"If you look hard enough you'll find a link somewhere. Look, rugby was invented in England. Do I need to say any more?"

"And I 'ates the way that when England plays, the commentators always talks about England and doesn't even mention Wales," another Welsh rugby supporter joined in.

There was some ray of hope that had the Welsh supporters cheering, in that England faced a quarter-final showdown against Australia, in which they were odds on favourite to lose.

"Justice will be served," said one of our interviewees. "I'm looking forward to a team of modest, unassuming, gentlemanly and fair-playing Australians beating England and winning the World Cup."
