Ryan Shallish scores for Wales...
(Click on the picture for a larger image)
Wales Deaf Rugby have been victorious at the third Estonian International Rugby Festival in Tallinn.
In a pulsating final, Wales came behind to defeat the Royal Marines by 12 - 10.
The Royal Marines dominated possession for long periods of the game, however a try by Ryan Shallish and a last gasp effort by Kyle Galtry brought the scores level at 10 - 10. Outside half Richard Lewis kicked the winning conversion from far out on the 22m line to secure a hard fought victory.
In their other matches, Wales defeated Estonia 39 - 5 with Tim Parkinson's scoring a hat trick of tries. Harry Hillier Rees, Kieron John and Kyle Galtry also crossed for tries. Richard Lewis kicked 4 conversions and a penalty.
In their other match, Wales defeated France's International Veterans by 38 - 0. Tries were scored by Gareth John, David Wellbeloved, Adam Brake, Kieron John, Lyndon Davies and Craig Field. Richard Lewis added the conversions with some polished kicking.
Morgan Williams - Prime Time Viewing!
Those of you watching BBC's early evening quiz Pointless may have had to take a double check on Friday and Monday as our very own Morgan Williams (1st team flanker) and his partner Jamie appeared on the show.
A relatively easy first two rounds saw the couple proceed to the head to head on Friday. For those of you not familiar with the game show the aim is to answer the questions correctly whilst trying to pick one that nobody in a panel of 100 people has given - a pointless answer. An incorrect answer results in a score of 100 which, when the aim of the game is to score 0, isn't particularly good.
The first of the two questions posed in the penultimate round had the pair identifying a jockey from a selection of five photographs. With their opposition opting for Willie Carson, Morgan and Jamie plumbed for Frankie Dettori. Unfortunately for them Willie Carson was the winning answer with only 38 of the panel choosing the same answer as apposed to 52 for Frankie. This meant that the couple had to beat their opponents in the next question to remain in contention. The topic was to be songs that have 'weather' in their title. After much debate Morgan (and some friendly encouragement from Jamie) offered the answer "Hot Right Now" earning a very respectable 17 and a tie-brake third question looked on the cards. Unfortunately the opposing team answered with Leo Sayer's "Thunder in My Heart" which scored 15, pipping our duo to the final by just 2 points.
However Morgan and Jamie had done enough to secure a second chance on the next show the following Monday. To see how they got on click on the image of the pair above!
