From Richard's Grogg Blogg Monday March 18th
Well now the dust has almost settled and I think I finally understand what I have witnessed it has been decided by us all at the Groggshop to commemorate,what has been described as Wales' finest hour, in traditional fashion by making a double figure celebrating the Welsh teams record win over England and back to back Championships. Entitled "Better than a Slam" it will feature both captains, Ryan Jones and Gethin Jenkins holding aloft the six nations trophy.Exactly when it will be available will be announced later but I will be starting work on the master figure today. As our collectors know this process itself takes a few months and the hand painting of each piece will mean a lengthy delay as with last season's Grand Slam Sam. We can only hope you can be as patient once again in helping to celebrate this outstanding achievement.
On a personal note I would like to say thank you to all the players and coaching staff in the Wales camp for the experience of a lifetime....what a game and what a performance! I thought Wales would win ....I was actually looking forward to the game - I had faith! But I didn't dream it would be quite so dramatic and clinical in the end. Wales were superb. In my 50 years of supporting Wales I've witnessed some remarkable rugby matches..1979 Wales v England, Wembley 1999 not to mention Grand Slam and Triple Crown deciders but this was on another level ,for all the reasons expressed by players and coaches this weekend. I have my favourite players but I won't mention names as Wales played as a complete unit - for each other- from one to fifteen , bench included ,each man gave his all under the most intense pressure- they deserve to be very proud.
Well they've done their bit now I have to do mine....as always we will keep you updated on Facebook and twitter as this very special piece develops but please remember patience is the watchword as our heroes in red have shown!
