God's own country

During a Wales v England match at the Millennium Stadium a lightning storm hit Cardiff and a bolt was conducted through the towers to the touch line.

In a tragic accident both coaches - Warren Gatland and Martin Johnson - were killed.

They were taken straight to heaven where they were warmly greeted by the Almighty.

After a while, Martin was taken to his new accommodation.

He was pleased to find a lovely English country-style cottage with statues outside in the form of English rugby greats.

As a constant background he could hear the sweet voices of angels singing "Jerusalem" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot."

Martin was delighted until he suddenly heard some even more beautiful singing coming from the top of the hill.

He listened closer and could hear "Bread of Heaven" followed by "Land of My Fathers."

Martin looked up the hill to see a great palace with statues outside of Barry John, Gareth Edwards and JPR Williams.

A party was taking place in the garden with Brains SA flowing freely as the crowd watched Scott Gibbs scoring his try at Wembley against England in 1999.

Martin went to the Lord and said: "Look, I don't want to appear ungrateful - my cottage is great, but why does Warren get the huge mansion?"

God broke into a laugh as he replied: "Martin, you've got it all wrong! That's not Warren's place - it's mine!"

Didn't understand a word of it, but I liked the last line:

God broke into a laugh as he replied: "Martin, you've got it all wrong!
