Six Nations fever

This BBC Wales promo heralding the start of Six Nations rugby is a delight:

I've become a rugby fan since moving to Wales -- such a fantastic game! When Wales plays at home here in Cardiff at Millennium Stadium the whole of the city centre is jammed with fans, which include a lot of families and women as well. (We women know a good rugby player when we see one!) The games are not blocked on television, so the pubs are filled with people watching as well.

Unfortunately, Wales, the defending Six Nations champions of 2012, lost their first game to Ireland on Saturday in a typically hard-fought, well-played match. Never give up!
