Wales v France: Rugby World Cup semi-final

The excitement is building here in Wales for one of the most important matches in Welsh rugby history. With a place in the Rugby World Cup final at stake, Wales will take on France tomorrow in Auckland, New Zealand.

The semi-final showdown is attracting support for Wales from all over the UK and the world – the Welsh flag will even fly over Downing Street tomorrow in support of the last British team remaining in the Rugby World Cup.

But it’s nothing like the bubble of anticipation that’s building here in Wales. Even with the match being played thousands of miles away in New Zealand, we still know how to support our boys. The Millennium Stadium, Cardiff is opening tomorrow for a special showing of the Rugby World Cup semi-final and is expecting a crowd of over 60,000 to cheer on the Welsh squad from the other side of the world.

You can already see a wave of Welsh flags and rugby shirts across the country and the buzzing atmosphere of pride, passion and enthusiasm is like nothing else.

A win for Wales tomorrow would mean a place in the Rugby World Cup final against either New Zealand or Australia and who knows, maybe something very special from there.

Pob lwc/Good luck Wales!
