Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

WHAT a year it’s been for the Welsh... with the pos­si­ble ex­cep­tion of the sport they’re best known for, rugby!

Their per­for­mance in the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship was in­cred­i­ble. I haven’t yet worked out if they had their plan­ning 100 per cent right, there­fore bet­ter than Eng­land, or drew on big­ger fish, be­cause look­ing at to­tal fish tal­lies, Eng­land mas­sively outscored the lads from across the Sev­ern Bridge.

But, as the old say­ing goes: “Have a look at my medals!” There is no doubt that this Welsh team did the biz. It’s not their first in­ter­na­tional tri­umph, of course, as they were World Cham­pi­ons in 1989 with a team in­clud­ing the great Clive Bran­son. The team even got a men­tion on BBC Ra­dio5 Live! Well done Boyos!

On­wards and up­wards to the Worlds... but be pre­pared for a bit of an English back­lash!
