Weve got a fantastic video for you to get your weekend started with that features classic Welsh tries from the last forty years. While the timing of the video is pretty irrelevant, what it is, is a magnificent showcase of running rugby and superb tries.
For the ardent Welsh fan, or the rugby neutral who simply loves seeing great rugby being played, this is a must watch.
Its an inspirational compilation that will hopefully bring back that feeling of nostalgia that is associated with rugby from the great Welsh era of the seventies, the stand out players of the eighties, some classic tries from the nineties, and then more recently, masterpieces from the current batch of super stars, one in particular.
Great tries from John Bevan and Phil Bennet in the Seventies are mixed in with impressive moments of magic from current tv pundits Jonathan Davies and Ieuan Evans in 1988. In recent years it's been the little maestro Shane Williams who has stood out for Wales, so we see some of his sensational moments too.
All in all, this is the definitive Welsh rugby tries collection. Its 14 minutes of great rugby action that makes it a special collection that will hopefully impress, inspire, and most importantly, be thoroughly enjoyed.
At the end weve included a piece that talks about what its like to play for Wales. It's about the history, culture, and tradition associated with the love for the game in the great rugby nation.
We even hear Richard Burton, the classic actor of yester-year say what he would have given for just one Welsh cap.
Enjoy this superb collection of classic tries, and dont forget to have a look at the related links down below, for two more awesome compilations, namely from France and Ireland.
