Passionate about rugby NZ and Wales!!!
On Saturday night we were guests of friends of ours (Spencer and Owain Davies - AMCANU) at the game between the Llanelli Scarlets and the Swansea Ospreys. We were treated to a meal before the game and Emily and I ate sooooo much! (3 desserts - everything in Wales is so sweet and yummy) There was a great atmosphere at the game with an almost full stadium expecting a Scarlets victory. My great grandfather Emrys had previously played for the Llanelli Scarlets in 1935 when they had played the All Blacks - he scored a try against them that day but the All Blacks still won. There are so many people interested in the Lions tour! There was lots of singing at the game - all of it in Welsh and they have a theme song 'Sospan Fach' which translated into English is a song about a saucepan!!!! There was some great rugby and some players from New Zealand Johnny McNichol in the Scarlets from the Crusaders and Keron Fonotia in the Ospreys from the Makos! It was a great time and the Welsh love their rugby as much as the kiwis, lots of shouting at the referee, lots of jumping up and down and lots of yelling!
Back to school today for the last of the national tests, sunny and warm days here, hope its not getting too cold in NZ.
