Extended Title - Quite like old times, ain't it, comin' orf winners in a test match. Mind you it wasn't much of a win - I dunno wot 'appened to the British team. Try as they would they couldn't keep the All Blacks from sneakin' in a couple of times. An' try as they would they couldn't get acrost the All Black's line. I s'pose our chaps 'ave got quite a kick out of it. Pity about the Welsh three-quarter line - It couldn't seem to git goin'. In consequence of which I'll bet the leeks 'ave wilted in Aberystwith, Llandudno an' other places too dificult to mention.
