Cardiff Everything Else

Judgement Day

Last Saturday I made my first pilgrimage to the Millennium – oops, I mean Principality Stadium (…it’s going to take a while before that sticks…) since moving back to Cardiff to watch Judgement Day; two full on games of Rugby featuring South Wales’ four heavyweight teams. 🙂

We bought the tickets way back in October as a Christmas present for my parents, my brother and his girlfriend – £10 for a rugby double feature ain’t bad at all.

The atmosphere never disappoints at the Principality Stadium, neither does the whole production/performance side.  Game one – Cardiff Blues v Swansea Ospreys kicked off with typical Principality pizzaz…

The Blues and Ospreys were more or less evenly matched, but in the end, the Ospreys came out on top…
(The Biggar Wiggle) 🙂 🙂 🙂

The Swansea Girl (my mum) cheered, while the Cardiff Boy (my dad) sighed.
At half time we feasted on a bit of Bread of Heaven… (i.e. ridiculously expensive but damn fine pizza)

Inevitably, the atmosphere dropped a little during the Scarlets v Dragons match.  Even though the weather was bright and sunny, it got a bit cold, the second game wasn’t as exciting as the first and some of the crowd left.  But!  We powered through and loved it.
