Ireland have officially been asked not to spoil the party on Saturday.
Welsh rugby bosses sent a letter to the Ireland team on Tuesday, politely asking them to ‘lose by about 15 points’.
A spokesman for Welsh Rugby said:
“We’ve won four out of four games and back in the old days, that would have been enough to win a Grand Slam. This Ireland game has got all our arses twitching and it’s too close to call whether we are going to win or not. We’ve taken the initiative and politely asked Ireland to take a dive on this one. They’ve got nothing to lose as they’re not really in the mix are they? It’ll mean that we can have a great night on Saturday and we can all go home happy.”
A spokesman for Irish rugby confirmed that they’d received the letter earlier this week.
“We got dat letter der now so we did.”
