USA v Wales – only on S4C

01/06/2009

S4C will broadcast Wales’ Second Test on their North America tour live and exclusive on Saturday, 6 June.

In a special edition of Y Clwb Rygbi Rhyngwladol, Gareth Roberts and former Wales lock, Derwyn Jones will present live coverage of the match against the USA from the Toyota Stadium, Chicago. Huw Llywelyn Davies and former Wales captain Gwyn Jones will provide the commentary, with Cennydd Davies pitch-side and Brynmor Williams analysing the action.

Caretaker coach Robin McBryde has chosen a mix of experienced international players and new faces to go on the tour. They include Dwayne Peel, Duncan Jones, Nicky Robinson, Gareth Williams and Daniel Evans.

The summer tour is a perfect opportunity for some of Wales’ most promising players to prove themselves on the international stage. Experienced squad members will be aiming to maintain their high standard and keep their international hopes alive for next season.

Robin steps into the shoes of the existing coaches, Warren Gatland, Shaun Edwards and Rob Howley, who are with the Lions' squad in South Africa.

“It means a great deal to me to be chosen as temporary coach for this tour. It’s such an honour to have people like Warren Gatland and the Welsh Rugby Union show confidence in my ability,” explains Robin.

Following the live match in Chicago, S4C viewers can see highlights of the Lions' battle against the Cheetahs at Vodacom Park, Bloemfontain. Highlights of the Lions' mid-week clash against the Sharks in Durban will also be shown on Wednesday, 10 June.
