Great day for Wales at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff
My last view of the stadium from the train leaving Cardiff Central for Cardiff International Airport following my recent trip home.

Today the stadium was the beating heart of the nation (small nation of 3 million people), as Wales faced the pre-tournament favourites France in their last game of the Six Nations tournament. Wales came to the game having an unbeaten record, while France had one defeat and could not win the tournament.... Wales were playing for the Grand  Slam. France have notoriously spoiled Welsh celebrations in the past both at home and in Paris..... could this happen again?

In a nervy game Wales who scored the only try of the match ran out 16-9 winners and topped the table.
 A great result which set Welsh hearts on fire...even those of us overseas watching online or in pubs around the globe.
Well done to the team of 2012 (both the on pitch and backroom team), special thanks to honorary Welshman Warren Gatland, who follows a long line of New Zealand Welshmen :-)
