Even the commentating on games is done with an English bias. It gets old quickly.
If England were in the semi's, the whole nation would be behind them 100%. But with Wales, whilst there is a lot of backing, it seems as if it's begrudged because they're there and England aren't. I'd bet the same would happen if Ireland or Scotland were in our position. It sucks.
Now that England are 100% out though, I think the talk will change this week and things will move forward.
This is exciting times for Welsh rugby, we have a new young hungry side that has the fitness of 2 teams, that play together well, and are all mates outside of rugby, and everyone's respecting and listening to Gatland (I officially love him, NZ make some damn fine coaches, and the fact he signed a new deal to 2015 for us is just amazing)
Normally welsh rugby is arguing with each other and the coaches, drinking and scandals, handling errors and petty mistakes.
I'm not saying we'll win the World cup, I'm not overlooking any of the remaining 3 teams we might have to face, but it's certainly the best chance we have ever had.
