Seventh Heaven – IRB Rugby World Cup Sevens highlights on S4C

10/03/2009

Following Wales' triumph at the IRB Rugby World Cup Sevens on Saturday, S4C will broadcast highlights of the home team's campaign, including the final against Argentina.

Viewers can see the new World Champions in action in a special highlights programme, Cwpan y Byd 7 Bob Ochr tonight at 10.00pm, and again on Saturday 14 March at 9.20pm.

The Sevens team won the Melrose Cup in the Dubai-based tournament, which is held every four years, when they beat their Argentina 19-12 in the final.

The programme will also follow Wales' journey during the three-day competition. The team beat off strong competition, winning against New Zealand in the quarter finals, and causing an upset for Samoa in the semi-finals.

Geraint Rowlands, S4C Content Editor Sport, said, "Wales' success out in Dubai has been tremendous for the country's sevens rugby and S4C is committed to showing the very best of the sport. This is a unique opportunity for viewers to see highlights of the winners' journey from start to finish - when they raise the Melrose Cup."
