Blame it on the Three Feathers.

Wales is out of the Rugby World Cup - and in no time at all, the Coach is asked to fall on a Sword whilst WRU Management dodge the issue of their failures. Meanwhile, the fans go into ''Anxt Overdrive'' and the Welsh Media kid us that the 1000 year Cymric Homeland is well into rigormortis. All this lot can waffle on as much as they like but the truth of the matter is that the Welsh Team will ever be futile failures as long as they continue to wear that ''Feather Duster'' on their team shirt. So WRU, get wise, "ditch the duster" and replace it with Owain Glyndŵr's Coat of Arms; this will give the team a renewed courageous fighting spirit and make them ready to take on any team that chooses to take them on. We ask all Pobl Glyndŵr to write to WRU and media suggesting this.
We also note that there are calls by some fans to burn their Welsh Rugby Shirt as a protest and many are passing them on to Charity Shops (see photos below), but instead of doing this, why not buy from us a Glyndŵr cloth badge to put on your shirt over those - the three "finished with" feathers! Or, as in Paul from Merthyr's case, who doesn't want to wear the "duster" at all! not even hidden under a Glyndŵr cloth badge! do as he and his friends have done, buy a plain red polo or sport shirt to sew your Glyndŵr badge onto.

Yes, we are aware that England is playing France today, so in the spirit of Henry Gwyn who fought for the French at Azincourt, we say C'MON FRANCE... CRUNCH THE SAIS!

We also have a limited number of Red caps (see photo below) for sale now and are able to sell the cap and a cloth badge for £5 + £1pxp. You sew the badges on yourself for this price or, I will sew them on for an extra £1 a cap. First come first serve - so hurry to ensure yours!
