It’s getting closer

With only around 4 hours to go until the RWC starts this evening in Twickenham, I must admit to getting really excited.I absolutely love this competition, the mix of brilliant skills, strength and speed along with the global spirit of camaraderie that exists in rugby, makes it a unique sporting event.
This one though is also a bit closer to us as Tecwyn has been working involved in the planning and building of all the RWC websites and apps. As a result, I’ve heard lots of the inside developments and also some of the lighter moments. There’s no doubt that he’s had a ball getting things ready for the off. So bring it on and may we have a feast of entertainment in the weeks to come as the we enjoy the best of a World in Union.

Tecwyn’s work at RWC 2015

For the last 3 years my younger son, Tecwyn, has been working at World Rugby (was International Rugby Board) on the digital team, looking after the development of their websites and apps. This is his interview – in Welsh – for BBC Radio Cymru this morning.

It was good to hear him admit that he is “hollol bonkers” something some of us have known for a long time!!

Nice one Tec.

Do you Haka or Hakarena?

I didn’t like the spoof of the Haka that Matt Dawson produced earlier this week but even though it was in bad taste it still might have been better than this rendition by the All Blacks against the Barbarians in the famous 1973 match. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unHsrJ8TYmU&feature=youtube_gdata_player
