    To Ken Fitlike and his Countrymen

    On behalf of the population of Wales, I would like to offer my heart-felt congratulations to the Scottish Rugby side for “sticking it to the English”.

    Well done fellas!

    Thumbs up

    On behalf of the population of Scotland I'd like to say to you and your fellow countrymen - our pleasure! x 18

    It was a great and gory game, superb result - I think we captured a couple of ears, too, each from a different englishman; all in all in good haul.

    Kudos to wikipedia, too, for a timely update on their Calcutta cup page.

    Well done Scotland!

    but I thought the object was to RUN the ball across the line at either end.

    The English seem to have forgotten that or is it they can't hear the instructions any more?
