Team Wales #TogetherStonger

Wales’ motto, “Gorau Chwarae, Cyd Chwarae”, transposed into the social media hashtag, #togetherstronger epitomised the dragons’ approach to their Euro 2016 campaign.  The debutants were underdogs from the start, but exceeded all expectations by defeating all odds firstly by toppings their group and then pulling off a miraculous victory against second ranked, Belgium, at the […]

Tomorrow (Friday 22nd January), the iconic Millennium Stadium will  officially assume the name of its new sponsor, the Welsh Building Society, The Principality.  Whilst most modern stadiums adopt sponsors nowadays, it’s going to take a great deal of getting used to.   It is an interesting choice of sponsor.  Not because this organisation is not […]

#RWC2015 Final Review – Back to Black 

It was fright night at the rugby World Cup on Saturday as the defending champions took on the Wallabies at Twickenham on All Hallows’ Eve.  There was always a real danger that the exhilaration we have all experienced over the past six weeks would end in an anticlimactic fashion, but the titanic clash did not […]
