Three complete double marathon for cancer research

L-R Andrew Marzano, Matt Marzano and James Healey (pictured with Andrew's daughters) celebrate completing their 53-mile double marathon

Three rugby fans have run through the night to complete a double marathon in aid of cancer research.

Brothers Andrew and Matthew Marzano and their friend James Healey set off from the Parc y Scarlets stadium in Llanelli at midnight, arriving at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium before noon today - a distance of 53 miles.

However, they ended up running a total of 56 miles - after taking an accidental detour near Bridgend.

Andrew Marzano told ITV News: "We went three miles in the wrong direction. And three miles in the wrong direction when you're doing 53 miles is a long way!"

But he added: "Cancer research is a cause very close to our hearts. Cancer affects all families. Mine and Matthew's grandmother died of cancer and various friends and family have also suffered."

In the day's second fixture at 4.45pm, Newport Gwent Dragons, who lie 10th in the PRO12 table, take on the Ospreys - the highest placed Welsh region in 5th.

The Dragons are without a win in their last five matches since their defeat to Glasgow at Rodney Parade in February.

As for the Ospreys, they are enjoying better form going into today's contest having won two of their last three matches. They have also been victorious in their last 13 PRO12 encounters against fellow Welsh regions.
