The public are invited to join homecoming celebrations at the Senedd for the Wales rugby team on Monday evening.

The event, which is open to the public from 17:00, will include the team coming out onto the steps and the presentation of trophies.

It comes after Wales crushed Ireland in their final game of the Six Nations tournament to win the Grand Slam.

It's their third Six Nations clean sweep under coach Warren Gatland.

WRU chief executive Martyn Phillips said the squad had made the country proud.

It’s an honour no less than this 2019 squad deserves, but it is also one which I know they will be humbled by.

Equally, hundreds of individuals throughout Welsh rugby have contributed to and are a part of this success and everyone involved in the game at all levels should take some ownership of this tremendous achievement and allow themselves a moment to reflect with pride on a great day for our national game.

– Martyn Phillips

The team beat Ireland 25-7 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday and extended their record unbeaten run to 14 matches.

In September, Wales head to Japan with high hopes of success in the Rugby World Cup.
