RYAN JONES

Former Captain and Wales Back-Row Forward Ryan Jones is out of the Six Nations Championship due to a Hamstring injury.

Ryan Jones suffered the injury during Osprey's Heineken Cup defeat by Leinster on Friday night. He is being replaced in the Welsh Squad by his regional team-mate James King.

JONATHAN DAVIES
Jonathan Davies, who was thought unlikely to be able to play in this Six Nations Championship due to a Chest Injury, may be able to play in the later matches.

Many thanks, Jemima fach :-D :-D Great info.

Have just sent a birthday card to a Welsh young lady who lives in Northampton with her favourite Welsh player, George North, on front wishing her a penblwydd hapus.

How sick are we in Wales that he has to play for the Saints :-( :-(

Unfortunately, unless they sort out the mess in the running of Welsh Rugby soon, George won't be the only one! :-( :-( :-(

Looks to me like Wales, France and Ireland next weekend. Hope I'm not jinxing anything. It is certainly my personal preference. I think first matches are the Under 20's (?) on Friday. And we must not forget the women this tournament. Some excellent rugby there too.

Was stopped in my local supermarket by some lovely girls who were helping with packing. They had Treorchy RFC on their shirts and one dainty young miss informed me that they played rugby every week and were seeking funds. Lovely girls, all of them. Real credit to our Valleys. :-D :-D

Crowds Singing Sosban Fach.....

Welsh
Mae bys Meri-Ann wedi brifo,
A Dafydd y gwas ddim yn iach.
Mae'r baban yn y crud yn crio,
A'r gath wedi sgrapo Joni bach.

Sosban fach yn berwi ar y tân,
Sosban fawr yn berwi ar y llawr,
A'r gath wedi sgrapo Joni bach.

Dai bach y sowldiwr,
Dai bach y sowldiwr,
Dai bach y sowldiwr,
A gwt ei grys e mas.

Mae bys Meri-Ann wedi gwella,
A Dafydd y gwas yn ei fedd;
Mae'r baban yn y crud wedi tyfu,
A'r gath wedi huno mewn hedd.

Sosban fach yn berwi ar y tân
Sosban fawr yn berwi ar y llawr
A'r gath wedi huno mewn hedd.

Dai bach y sowldiwr,
Dai bach y sowldiwr,
Dai bach y sowldiwr,
A gwt ei grys e mas.

Aeth hen Fari Jones i Ffair y Caerau
I brynu set o lestri de;
Ond mynd i'r ffos aeth Mari gyda'i llestri
Trwy yfed gormod lawer iawn o 'de'

Sosban fach yn berwi ar y tân
Sosban fawr yn berwi ar y llawr
A'r gath wedi huno mewn hedd.

English (literal translation) of Sosban Fach:

Mary-Ann has hurt her finger,
And David the servant is not well.
The baby in the cradle is crying,
And the cat has scratched little Johnny.

A little saucepan is boiling on the fire,
A big saucepan is boiling on the floor,
And the cat has scratched little Johnny.

Little Dai the soldier,
Little Dai the soldier,
Little Dai the soldier,
And his shirt tail is hanging out.

Mary-Ann's finger has got better,
And David the servant is in his grave;
The baby in the cradle has grown up,
And the cat is 'asleep in peace'.

A little saucepan is boiling on the fire,
A big saucepan is boiling on the floor,
And the cat is 'asleep in peace'.

Little Dai the soldier,
Little Dai the soldier,
Little Dai the soldier,
And his shirt tail is hanging out.

Old Mary Jones went to the fair in Caerau,
To buy a tea set;
But Mary and her teacups ended up in a ditch,
Through the consumption of rather too much "tea".

A little saucepan is boiling on the fire,
A big saucepan is boiling on the floor,
And the cat is 'asleep in peace'.
