    <div align="center"> But their run to the final ensured Wales earned a place in the 2009 World Cup Sevens in Dubai. </div>
    <div align="center"> Portugal led 21-0 at the break and Lee Williams and Gareth Chapman struck back late on to give Wales respectability. </div>
    <div align="center"> Wales beat Georgia 19-14 in the semis and beat Belgium 33-12 in their final pool game despite ending with four players after three were sin-binned. </div>
    <div align="center">Rhodri McAtee scored two Wales tries against Georgia and Andy Powell struck after the break while top seeds Portugal beat Ireland 14-12 in their semi-final. </div>
    <div align="center"> London Welsh's Alec Jenkins was first to be sin-binned against Belgium, but while down to four players Powell scored a try. </div>
    <div align="center"> On day one Wales beat Poland (38-7), Ireland (26-14), Ukraine (21-17) and Italy (33-12), but they ended the tournament with only eight fit players from their squad of 12. </div>[/b][/quote]<div align="center">

    Seems we gave a good account and looking at the squad it was good to see others used rather than the same old same old players!

    yeah Portugal showed up themselves in a great way in Rugby Sevens
    But I remember Wales' play here in Tbilisi how they managed to overcome every of their opposers
    I think we all now have to show in Dubai.
