Rooting for the Frogs?

#1
Perhaps this would be better in the sports bit but....

Tonight because we like rugby and especially that wonderful competition the 6 Nations, I am off to watch the Wales-France game in a bar down in Girona with a couple of mates.
However it struck me that I am inclined not so much to a Gallic win as more to a Welsh defeat because if the Taffs get back-to-back Slams they will be insufferable.
Then I was forced to face the unpalatable, should I actually root for the Frogs? Or should I just accept the result whatever it is and hope that the Paddies or Jocks can trip the Taffs up?

So given the fact that whenever England play, all our Celtic cousins are shouting for the other side would it be acceptable for an Englishman to
lend his support to the French?
In fact are there any circumstances that you could visualise when an Englishman should do that terrible thing and root for the Frogs?

I think you will find it is a bit late for the Jocks to trip us up

Treason... You'll be hung, drawn and quartered... Not necessarily in that order...

The Taffs have always been insufferable... No change there...

I'm not actually going to do the dark deed, I just wondered if it could ever be done under certain circumstances and not limited to rugby necessarily.

I have watched a few Internationals when I have been in Brittany. If the French are playing Wales, the Bretons cheer on Wales: Usually, they'll cheer on anyone but France :lol:

As an Englishman living in Wales I hope the French stuff them or I'll never hear the end of it. :p

Off to watch it now :D

The reason is very simple, the Bretons are/were Celts, their language has a lot in common with Welsh.

The above was written whilst sipping Breton whisky. I think that indicates where my sympathy lies.
