Tour Games Return to Strad……Y Parc Y Scarlets.

Making the most out of the forthcoming Papal visit, Llanelli Scarlets are to play another touring side when they take on a Vatican team. As the game is on a Wednesday, it still counts as a full Vatican team with caps and everything. Nigel Davies is really excited about this stargames. “This historic game has got me really excited” he explained to our Gwlad reporter. The game is to be staged after a full Catholic mass. There will also be a mass after the game and another quick mass during half time. “Nothing says ‘Centuries of Oppression’ more than a Left of the Loughor / Left Footer clash” pointed out Stephen Jones, who combines playing outside half for Wales with his weekend job of writing about rugby for the London Times. “This organisation has come in for a lot of criticism over the years ranging from worries about finances and a dwindling number of believers to its hardline views on gay rights and women priests, so it should have a lot in common with the Vatican team” stated Jones. And then he got off the bus.
