Rugby legends make themselves at home with lucky Aberdare family

One family family from Aberdare watched the Wales verses New Zealand match from the comfort of their own home - but with a difference!

With over 170 international caps between them, Gareth, Rupert and Rachel enjoyed the tense moments of the game with Brogan and her extended family, who had popped over to watch the game and meet the rugby legends in person.

Watching the game with Gareth, Rupert and Rachel was amazing. The result was a bit disappointing but we couldn’t have watched it with any better people. I don’t think you could beat today, it was fab!

– Brogan Evans

Watching the game with Brogan’s family has been awesome.

It’s been a very unique experience with such an amazing group of passionate Welsh rugby fans.
