England are planning on playing the Welsh national anthem ‘shitly’ on Saturday, according to inside sources.
The trick is a common one pulled by teams when Wales are playing away from home. Playing the Welsh anthem is designed to rile the Welsh players and make them lose focus.
Simon ‘Secret’ Squirrel, of 4 Chestnut Avenue, Heol Glas, Caerphilly, CF43 9JR, who can’t be named for legal reasons, told WalesOnCraic:
“Ireland are particularly good at playing Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau pretty shitly but the English boys have just cottoned on so they’ll be giving it a go on Saturday. They’re either going to play it far too slow or they’re going to play it like they’re on speed. Either way, our boys are going to have to just ignore it and get on with their own game.”
Wales visit Twickenham on Saturday in the fourth round of this year’s Six Nations tournament, where they are likely to be beating England by 20+ a point margin.
