Now I'm not sure, but think these quotes mean " Well played old boy. The English are good sports at losing" or maybe "Well played old boy. The English are good at losing sports"

Fair play to the "taffs". I know nothing of, and care even less, about rugby. But a win is a win.

He could always do something along the lines of "Two sides to every game", or "Two halves", bearing in mind how England played in the first half & vice versa
#17

Yes.

In truth, no one knows for certain, but that's the commonly held view as to origin of Rugby.

William Web Ellis
(1806-1872)
William Webb Ellis was born on the 24 November 1806 in Salford. After the death of his father, his mother moved with her two sons to live in Rugby in Warwickshire in order to get them a good education at the celebrated Rugby School. Ellis attended the school from 1816 to 1825, and was successful in both academic studies and sports.
Later, he won an exhibition to Brasenose College, Oxford, which he attended from 1825-1828, and where he gained a Cricket Blue. In adult life he became chaplain of St George's Chapel in Albermale.
Ellis's notoriety comes from an event at Rugby School during a football training session in 1823, when, as a 16 year old schoolboy, he caught the round ball and instead of standing still, he ran with it, and that, so the story goes, is how the game of Rugby Football began. In fact, some authorities have it that he might actually have been demonstrating the ancient Irish game of 'caid', which was similar to rugby, and may have been introduced to William by his father who had been stationed as a soldier in Ireland. Many schools at that time played a game similar to rugby and football, which had few rules, many played by their own rules, and touching or holding the ball was not uncommon - what Ellis did differently was that he actually ran with the ball and placed it in the net.
An official split between what became Soccer Football and what was to become Rugby Football took place in 1863 when the Football Association was formed. Later, in 1871, representatives from rugby clubs across the country met to form the Rugby Football Union and draw up their own common code of laws.
A statue of Ellis as a young boy carrying a football can be found in the grounds of Rugby School. William Web Ellis died on 24 January 1872 in Mentone, France and is buried in the cemetery there

With three quarters of their team's Six Nations game gone Saturday, the English fans were singing. England, playing its first home game since reaching the World Cup final in Paris in November, was ahead and in total control against Wales, a team that had not won at Twickenham for 20 years. Then the wheels fell off the sweet chariot,Wales pounced on a pair panicky errors by the English to score two tries in three minutes. It held on comfortably for the last 10 minutes against a dazed home team to win, 26-19.

Two hours earlier, in the opening game of the Ireland also wobbled on the second half but hung on to beat Italy, 16-11, at Croke Park in Dublin.

England was team from the Six Nations, the northern hemisphere championship, which could look back on the World Cup as a success. Wales was eliminated in the first round by Fiji, a defeat that ended Gareth Jenkins' brief reign as Wales coach.

England's unexpected run to the final hard earned its coach, Brian Ashton, only a 12-month contract extension. The World Cup was followed by the inevitable burst of retirements, but a spine of veterans remained and the coach placed his faith largely in them.

It was the newcomers and youngsters who caught the eye as England dominated the first half. David Strettle, a 24-year-old-winger who had missed the World Cup injured, wove 60 meters through the Welsh defense before spurning a pass and trying in vain to finish himself. But Strettle lasted less than 20 minutes before injuring himself again. He was replaced by a 28-year-old debutant, the hulking Lesley Vainikolo, a former New Zealand rugby league international, now crammed into the white shirt of England's rugby union team.

With 22 minutes gone, England led,16-3. The Welsh were dropping balls and missing tackles. They were being overpowered in the lineout. Their goal-kicker, James Hook, misfired while Wilkinson, unflappable as ever, seemed likely to cruise to the 18 points he needed to reach 1,000 for England .

England sliced through the Welsh defense again and again before half time, but never quite turned the chances into touchdowns. Hook landed one penalty to cut the deficit to 10 points.

"The first half was really poor," Warran Gatland, the new Wales coach, said. "The message before half time was just to hang on."




I got this from the New York Times , hope it helps, you can take snippits out to make your own story.

While I'm not an eggchasing fan, I decided to have a bit of fun. OOPS Sorry guys didn't realise ebay links were forbidden, search for item number below, don't know if that's allowed or not but 100% of the money is going to charity so hopefully you'll let it slide this once.
