Wales should come on with a brolly and a giant leek. Practical and culturally appropriate.

Well they had to try and mask and make you forget that shower of poop version of the French anthem!!! The players looked utterly confused and as though they were unaware of what was to come. I can imagine some hipster choir master telling the squad pre game, we have a brilliant surprise for you at the anthems it will blow your mind. I suspect the guillotine will be dusted down.
However back to the Hakka I love it, it brings to the game other sports don’t have it throws a gauntlet down that most players who get to that level want to witness first hand. Long May it continue

The choral singing continues today for the Italy game. It sounded much better with a quieter crowd but it was awful yesterday before the euphoric French!
