Was the 1995 National the one that ended up void so no-one actually won it?

IIRC the void race was 1993 (the year my eldest was born).
Royal Athlete emerged victorious in 1995.

Wales?

Nope. Wales had reasonable success in the 5 nations and were really successful in the old home nations. Scotland are getting close but are saved by being pretty decent in the home nations way back.

Narrows it down to England, France or Ireland. Should be fairly easy now.

I would've got question 4 and 8. I knew question 2 but couldn't remember what his name was so would've put Di Matteo so would've got it wrong.
