Meanwhile, this week in Wales…

Wales is in a frenzy over Rugby this week, with all Welsh eyes turned to the biggest game in Wales’ rugby history – a semifinal game against France this Saturday.  Last Saturday, Wales pummeled Ireland during the quarterfinals, while France beat England.  With Rhys Priestland sitting the game out with a shoulder injury, James Hook will be starting against France.  Don’t feel too bad for Priestland, he was just voted the sexiest man in Wales for 2011.
