Cymru Am Byth!

Guess who won the 2009 IRB Sevens Rugby World Cup?
It was pretty epic. i mean, to return back from camp and the first thing i find out is Wales won the sevens world cup. They even Beat us, New Zealand! :(:
Heres a table of their games
Day One
Wales vs Zimbabwe
Day Two
Wales vs Uruguay
Wales vs Argentina
Day Three
Quarter Final
Wales vs New Zealand
Semi Final
Wales vs Samoa
Wales vs Argentina
Also Scotland beat Australia 21-17 to win the plate final, and Zimbabwe beat Ireland 17-14 to win the bowl final. Some other big upsets were Argentina Beating South Africa 14-12.  The welsh team didn't have any of their famous union sidestep wizards like Shane Williams or Mark Jones either. England had previous sevens bragging rights but lost 36-21 to Samoa in the knockout stage. Dunno what happened to Fiji.
p.s Cymru Am Byth is Welsh for "Long Live Wales" so yes they can speak their own language.
