Just saw these on the WRU website, and I have to say the WRU have once again let themselves down!!!

You expect the odd welsh fan to make a joke, maybe mock up the odd taunting Tshirt design as a harmless joke but for the governing body to do it just before the lions tour???

Typical WRU! I am pretty embarassed by this tbh.

thumbsup that's because you have class Bluesmancometh. But it's not like the RFU and PRL have been all that classy recently either, nor the British Press in their 6N coverage

That is absolutely fantastic. Have a sense of humour and enjoy the fun.

Seriously.. Nike and England made a Grandslam VIDEO! before they (didn't win) it!

This silly t-shirt should be the incentive England need for a good 2014.

Well you expect the media to be the media.

I havn't seen much from the RFU thats awfully wrong of late tbh CJ, I have been quite impressed with them actually.

For the WRU to taunt the RFU/PRL and anyone involved with English rugby is pathetic, would you find an English Tshirt released after the game saying something along the lines of 'Back to the 3rd tier with you' funny t1000??

Everything the WRU does these days just makes a mockery of the sport and nation, they are pethetic little weasils who pre tournament were a bunch of no marks on a 7 game losing street, all feeling the heat and ducking the media to this act of petulance, grow up boys!!

Crass and distasteful, this is not the "cool britania, in yer face, orangina" era now...... we have evolved since the 90s, even the WRU must realise the reality TV fifteen minutes of fame mindset is almost at an end (T1000 and his like excluded of course)

Next thing you'll have a 25 foot cardboard cut out of Posh & Becks oooops sorry Church & Henson gawking down on the Cardiff streets promoting the 2013 6Ns title

Well done the WRU for dragging a professional approach to the 6Ns by the Welsh squad into the mire

What do the WRU care though? All they see is profit making opportunities. Sadly, there'll always be a fair few divs who will fork out for things like that and the WRU know this.

I can see a good few English followers cheekily buying them up and saving them for perhaps moments in the future.....

It's probably harmless jabbing...perhaps not belonging to an official Union store, I'd agree with blues there...but it does put silly pressure on Welsh sides and players to keep that there tee-shirt off the backs of 'Getting-Back-At-You' England fans who wouldn't mind wearing it at an appropriate time in the future....say maybe a WC?

To be fair it's better than the one with the Welsh chap urinating on an England shirt.

I don't think that one is an official WRU shirt though.

Bit of fun...

Maybe England should stop buggering up Grandslam day and actually grab it by the scruff for once. They are a huge nation with bags of talent.

I've lost count on how many grand slam matches they've lost.

Use it as motivation.

No thats not official, and the first of those were from Liverpool fans on ManUtd weren't they? It then travelled through all sports...

Not sure who said it but it's true, pressure, and pettyness aside as long as the WRU earn there few coins!!

Yeah, it's a pretty generic one, just saw it a lot when I lived in Cardiff.

I can understand a firm doing it, but it really shouldn't be official. Still, it's all about the cash.

How is it better in taste shifty? The England grand slam ones were just early. I'm sure all nations plan for all eventualities. The MS ceremony would have been different if England had won i'm sure - i.e. they would have had two plans for it. I can guarantee you that in the days prior to wales' grand slam wins the t shirts were already printed. You wait until afterwards, you miss out (in a business sense). Planning therefore is not bad taste. However, poking fun of other nations is bad taste, and will only come round to bite us on the behind. Let's not forget the embarrassing run of losses recently.

As long as people are happy to take the flak as much as they give it then I've no problem with this sort of stuff... Although given its issued by the actual union it lacks a bit of class.

The money is now in the coffers of Welsh rugby - and I'm even saving on postage, having got one for my missus and the two lads as well. I can't wait to wear it down the local (English) club. Very Happy
