Are any additional services being provided to/from Cardiff tomorrow to cater for those attending this match at the Millennium Stadium?

A quick look on RealTimesTrains suggests before the game extra trains from London Paddington, Bristol Temple Meads, Bristol Parkway and Port Talbot Parkway.

Afterwards there are additionals to London Paddington (x2), Bristol Temple Meads and Swansea (x2)

Suspect some local services will also have additional coaches.

Don't let the WRU see that - it's Principality Stadium now, though I bet most people turning up tomorrow won't call it that.

The topic didn't give any indication what sport was being played, so I went in search. It appears to be some sort of boating competition. With beef stew. I can't imagine there would be that many people travelling to see this?

Meanwhile, my commiserations to John R on the result of the Rugby Union match: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/38920444  Wink Cheesy Grin

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

Did anyone notice on the BBC coverage that the person operating the score graphic in the top left of the screen briefly awarded England's late try to Wales before hastily subtracting it and adding it to England's tally?

No, I was far too busy jumping up & down cheering, much to the surprise of a number of patrons of the small bar in Paris where I was watching the match........not that the final result was ever in doubt of course! Wink

You are clearly the type of supporter that gets us such a bad name in Europe.  Shocked Wink Grin

I  was over there for the France v Scotland match the following day with two Welshman, two Scots and a Frenchman so there were a wide variety of emotions on display throughout the weekend, as always however with rugby the behavior was impeccable!  Smiley
