Post by HERSH Tue Nov 29, 2011 9:53 am

After all the stick us English fans got for Nike and the RFU planning ahead and ordering 6 nations grand slam t-shirts, I thought in the interest of balance that I would mention what I saw in a Cardiff supermarket the other day.

I saw a red t-shirt for sale and it said 'TEAM OF 2011, GLORY (in large letters), WALES IN UNION' I didn't know that 4th place in both the 6 nations and world cup was regarded a success?

Surely the WRU didn't make the same mistake and ordered these t-shirts before the results were in and are now selling them on the cheap in a supermarket? Doh

were they doing them in extra-large? I'll have to pop down and get one. It'll be great for winding up the English neighbours.

To be fair most sponsors will have arranged for celebratory marketing prior to the end of a tournament - certainly I saw sponsors adverts celbrating NZs win immediately after the game.

The crime Nike committed was to allow the story to leak out.

As to these supposed T-shirts - why not? Wales are proud of their team and if they are willing to buy these T-shirts so be it.

To be fair Wales don't usually get out of their group, and their team performed well despite losing 3 games at the tournament so fair play to them.

Wales love celebrating their 'almost victories' and let's face it, everyone knows that they secured the 'moral' victory in NZ.

They came very close to winning the world cup, just a hairs breadth away so wear those t shirts with pride for many years to come I say.

That famous piece of commentary "Wales get whipped by Australia to take 4th place" has now overtaken barbed wire as the most popular tattoo in Wales.

Perhaps they made them on the basis, that *on their day* Wales would have won the RWC.

Personally I'm upset that I never got to find out if England won the dwarf throwing or not.

At least it would be something.

I haven't seen a Nike video either way, not that you can tell much from those videos.

I just don't see it like that, Captain fantastic in dangered the life of another player with that tackle, plus they said they didn't drink a drop in NZ then they did, so what was it?

There only glory in 2011 was to beat an ageing Irish team.

atuakiwikiwi is trying hard as well. This HERSH chappie, is this the same one who struck 'terror' into the old Page606? seems he's got his teeth into this t-shirt story, could just make all of Wales beg for forgiveness soon. Laugh

thank god you have calmed down a bit fella! Just sit back and think of that glorious 4th place finish which were it not for the refs, and events perpetrated by the English 800 years ago would undoubtedly have been a victory in the final.

By the way, if you want the t-shirt so badly, just pop down the shop and buy one. Surely it would be better than a photo of one?

It is amusing you jumping on this band wagon when not long ago:

Wales had a good world cup, and got further than any of the home nations so of course the press are going to get over excited.
If I was a welsh fan, I'd be happy that things are looking promising for them. I don't think Wales have been overrated apart from in some parts of the press. Welsh fans have just got behind their team for playing good rugby and rightly so.

Why they WUMming all of a sudden, when you were full of praise only a month and a half ago? Stop holding on HERSH's coat tails Whistle

I stand by that comment gc, I'm just having a laugh at you playing the hard man, angrily typing away at your keyboard demanding photos!
Wales did have a decent world cup, but some of the recent comments from welsh fans on here, you would think they had won the world cup when actually they won just exactly the same as England, Ireland and Scotland eg nowt!

If you want to see actual coat tail hanging I suggest you go back and read some of the Welsh posters comments after the Ireland v Egland 6N game. Truly nauseating stuff as Irelands victory is bizzarely taken away from them and claimed as a 'celtic' one! hahahahaha

It was fine a few months ago.

Actually it seems to have gotten worse SINCE the WC, rather than during.

steam Hope it doesnt end up like 606, but its heading that way.
