A day at the rugby

I was lucky enough to go to the Wales v England warm-up match at the Principality Stadium last weekend. It wasn’t a pretty match, but the end result of that and the other matches on the weekend is that for the first time ever, heading into the Rugby World Cup starting next month in Japan, Wales just about top the World Rugby rankings. They’re not playing this coming weekend, but Ireland are (away at Twickenham), so I don’t know if they’ll stay there, but they’re there for now.
