Is anyone else going to be watching the rugby this afternoon? SIL is English but me and the daughters will be singing the WELSH national anthem and yelling for Wales, DD2 will be wearing her best red rugby shirt. I'm living in England now as relocated to be near daughters and grandchildren but you can't take the Welsh out of the girl!!!

Yes come on Scotland!
Last night we watched the women's 6 Nations on the red button.
Wales v Scotland.
Wales won by 1 point!
They played at Cardiff to a virtually empty stadiumsad.
If they give free tickets to Schools, college and university students also the sport clubs it would help to give stadium at bit more atmosphere.

I’ll certainly watch the Italy -v- England game (tv controls, seat and refreshments already booked) but not sure about the rest this weekend. Game on!

2 granddaughters plus friends have travelled to Cardiff to visit dad and go with him to see today's game. In his younger days he played for the Scottish under21 team. The only other member of the family to appear on Murrayfield pitch is DG 1 while at school.

They'll all support Scotland but dad's wife and stepdaughter are Welsh. The weekend has been organised to celebrate stepmum's birthday so they'll enjoy it whatever the result.

Sounds as if Scotland is in with a chance and we'll be watching. The first game I ever attended was a Scotland/ Wales match at the 'old' Murrayfield while I was at St A.

Good of the 6 nations authorities to organise the date of this fixture for them!

DH will be watching it and I shall pop in and out to admire the legs! DH supports England but loves all of it and a true sportsman he cheers for everyone.

PS I like the French rugby players - cor!!!!!
