Rydym yn Ffrindiau - Amici Sumus

Friendly Match Start: Wales v England

Russell Sherwood  Sunday, November 14, 2021

An interesting Friendly match with England has commenced on 37 Boards

Despite giving away almost 25 elo per board on average, which reduces the target-line to 34.5-35, this looks to be an intriguing encounter, due to the mix of players on both teams.
