Rugby Fans will remember that Our Leigh sustained a serious knee injury during last years World Cup Warm-Up Games.

Leigh has been recovering from the resulting operation and has been working hard to regain his match fitness.

Warren Gatland said that one of the hardest decisions he has had to make was to leave Leigh out of the New Zealand Touring Squad.
Warren, who is known for his loyalty to his players, has said that he will call Leigh in if injuries makes it necessary.

Hi Everyone :-) :-) :-) <3

Looking forward to your company too, Kandj <3



Hi Robert :-)
It's not only Wales! We cater for all nationalities here! :-D :-D :-D

Those who have read or joined in our rugby thread know I am always fair.
We are good sports from all nationalities, joining in here to support our National Team, whichever that team may be!

I always announce all participating squads and starting teams and little snippets of news from everywhere.
Also I often do a "pre-match special" with entertainment reflecting the participating nationalities.

It started off as a Welsh Rugby Thread and then encompassed all the nations.
But obviously, as I am Welsh, Wales is my predominant interest.



Hi Belle<3
Not sure how to go about it yet! :-D :-D
We could all record it and watch it together, or get up :-0 :-0 :-0
And what happens when the games clash, cos all the UK teams will be touring!

Needs a lot of working out methinks :-D :-D
