-about ice hockey!
-Last night, the Cardiff Devils
-Deja vu for the Devils as they
-welcomed the Steelers to Cardiff...
-..for the second successive week.
-The goalless first period was no
-indication of what was to come.
-Both goalminders were solid.
-The Steelers scored first two
-minutes into the second period.
-John Armstrong with the perfect pass
-and Levi Nelson struck.
-The Devils struck back
-with a very strange goal.
-The Steelers had possession although
-the Devils had a penalty advantage.
-Ben O'Connor went for the pass...
-..but the puck deflected off
-Davey Phillips and into the net.
-They all count.
-The final period
-was packed with excitement.
-Firstly, the Steelers'
-..was sent off for five minutes.
-It was for an offence against
-Devils' player-coach, Andrew Lord.
-No doubt about that one.
-The Devils took full advantage.
-The Steelers were down to five

-Steelers struck back immediately.

-3-2 was the score
-and the Devils looked solid...
-..after their recent thrashing
-There's a chance for some revenge
-tonight as the teams meet again.
-The relief was clear
-at the final whistle.

-It's a great view
-from the top of the Elite League.
-The Devils are flying high
-and Eric Jones is my studio guest.
-You never seem happier
-than on a mountain.
-We can see you now with another
-Welsh adventurer, Ioan Doyle.
-From North Wales to South America.
-You don't need to guess
-where these two feel at home.
-What is it about solo climbing
-that attracts you?
-It's the feeling of freedom.
-You don't need a partner
-or any equipment.
-You are totally alone.
-You have to rely on yourself.
-It's the purest way of climbing.
-It's also the most dangerous.
-The fact that danger is involved
-is what attracts me the most.
-You are on a steep cliff...
-..and your life depends
-on the tips of your fingers.
-Eric Jones with Ioan Doyle.
-I'm sure a lot of people have asked
-you - what's the attraction?
-It's been a big part of your life.
-I've always been adventurous.
-I started climbing in Llanberis Pass
-with my friends.
-My friend found love in Llanberis
-so I was all alone!
-That's how I started climbing alone.
-I got a thrill climbing alone
-though it is dangerous.
-I have a four-year-old son.
-Boys like climbing.
-You've just carried on doing it!
-Do you remember going abroad
-for the first time?
-You're from North Wales.
-There are incredible mountains
-on your doorstep.
-Do you remember seeing Europe's
-big mountains for the first time?
-Yes. I'd been climbing in North
-Wales for about three years.
-A few climbing friends said I had
-to go to Italy, to the Dolomites.
-I first went there in 1965.
-I saw the amazing mountains.
-You've seen some major changes
-in your life.
-You're about to reach
-a major milestone.
-Have the mountains changed at all?
-The glaciers have reduced however
-because of global warming.
-That's the biggest change
-I've seen over the years.
-We mentioned North Wales.
-Eric's been a familiar face on S4C
-In S4C's early years...
-..a pioneering programme filmed Eric
-live in the Llanberis area.
-Let's see it.
-How are things going, Eric?
-This is John.
-It's going fairly well.
-I'm trying to relax.
-How are your hands?
-Quite well right now.
-They'll start hurting
-the further up I go.
-It's a bit wet and slippery here.
-I'll let you get on with it then.
-An early S4C programme.
-It's hard enough
-answering my silly questions...
-..but what's it like
-when you're on a rock face?!
-I was a little nervous.
-You sounded a little nervous.
-Was that because of TV?
-It was being done
-in English and Welsh.
-I spoke English and Welsh in turn.
-Once I settled down...
-..I forgot about the cameras
-and concentrated on the climb.
-It's great looking back.
-have followed you around.
-Your story is incredible.
-Is it nice
-having the cameras follow you?
-It's good for posterity I suppose.
-I'm not fond of cameras.
-I'm not happy
-in front of the cameras.
-I'd rather focus on climbing.
-I filmed with Leo Dickinson
-The images are amazing.
-You mentioned going abroad.
-The Dolomites and the Eiger
-What's it like when you climb solo?
-It's totally different.
-You're all alone.
-You have no-one to talk to.
-Halfway up a mountain,
-you're often on a ledge overnight.
-You're cold and wet
-and you're in a dangerous place.
-It showed what kind of personality
-In everyday life,
-you may think you're a strong man.
-When you're on a ledge
-in the grip of nature...
-..you're very small and fragile.
-It's an incredible story.
-We have a lot more to discuss.
-It's great to have you here.
-We'll go to a break next.
-Plenty still to come.
-It's rugby when we come back.
-We turn to rugby now and to
-the Foster's Challenge Cup.
-This week, Principality
-table-toppers Merthyr Tydfil...
-..were playing Bargoed,
-the team at the bottom.
-Surely there could only be
-Come on, you know the sporting world
-better than that by now!
-The win is nice, first and foremost.
-Bargoed is a good, honest place.
-They'll fly into us, we know that.
-they're coming up here strong.
-Last week, we went out and tried to
-put smiles on faces against Ponty.
-We wanted to take
-pressure off these boys.
-They are their own worst critics.
-Especially with all the success
-we've had in the past.
-Taking the pressure of the league
-away in the Foster's led to...
-..some really good play last week
-and we deserved that victory.
-we can build on that tonight.
-The rolling maul.
-Who has the ball?
-They are moving forwards
-towards the try line.
-They look liked being held up
-but the try has been given.
-Hooker, Sam Evans, is the scorer.
-As simple as that.
-Three line-outs in quick succession
-each followed by a driving maul.
-Sam Evans scores the
-first try of the evening.
-The ball slips
-through Locke's fingers.
-He's a safe pair of hands.

-of Merthyr defenders.

-This is the flanker, Coupe.
-Bancroft has options on both sides.
-Davies spins it out.
-Greg Callow goes all the way
-to score the try.
-He shoved the defender aside.
-Merthyr were trying to
-pressurize in the tackle area.
-Callow shoves his way clear
-and scores Bargoed's first try.
-Weyman to Callow.
-He hangs onto it.
-He's a powerful centre.
-Merthyr have stolen it
-under the shadow of the posts.
-They go to the left and James, the
-scrum half, looks to have scored.
-It's hard to tell from here.
-Merthyr have certainly scored
-their second try of this first half.
-There goes the scissors move.
-The Merthyr defence
-has been very powerful today.
-They've had a solid, organized
-defence for the whole game.
-They have a defence
-that poses a constant threat.
-Bancroft retains the possession
-and sets it up for Dyer.
-He runs a clever angle
-and he's found some space.
-Dyer is going to score.
-Bargoed have deserved to score
-the try at the start of this half.
-Patience paid off as Dyer eventually
-beat several men to score.
-could give Bargoed the lead.
-Straight down the middle.
-Bargoed lead by a point.
-Time is running out so they have
-to throw caution to the wind.
-Jarvis looked to have
-made a break there.
-Crossing is the decision.
-A penalty to the visitors with the
-gap 4 points with 9 minutes left.
-Jones takes aim.
-He missed with his last effort.
-He hasn't missed that one.
-There are men available here.
-They are five metres out.
-James out, has it gone forward?
-Was that one forward?
-Merthyr have made a mess of that
-and Bargoed can break away.
-He's trying to stride away but
-Bishop catches him and tackles him.
-This is an amazing end to the game.
-Bargoed are trying to seal the win.
-There are some very tired legs
-trying to get back in defence.
-Hallett kicks it dead.
-What a finish!
-A couple of our boys
-just didn't front up tonight.
-They treated it as the Foster's Cup.
-That's a bit disrespectful,
-to be honest with you.
-We didn't pay them half-wages this
-week because it was Foster's Cup.
-Every time you put the jersey on
-you have to put in a shift.
-We didn't do that today.
-Bargoed took advantage.
-Pontypridd against Ebbw Vale
-was the other game in Pool 3.
-Ponty dominated the first half.

-of wins against Swansea to 10 games.
-Haydn Pugh to Callum Price.
-Chris Banfield is there
-to score his hat-trick.
-The star of the game
-shines right to the end.
-Both these sides were blooding fresh
-talent as Llandovery took the lead.

-Llanelli fought back with a try
-by young fullback, Leon Randall.
-A strong foundation by the pack...
-..allowed Nathan Hart
-to give the home team the lead.

-a try-scoring pass to Ed Curtis.

-the crucial bonus point try.
-side-stepping his way to the line.

-..launched a perfect kick
-for Ed Howley to collect...
-..and offload to Gavin Evans
-who beat his man and scored.
-Cardiff stayed in the game thanks
-to Cameron Gibbon winning this race.
-However, Neath clinched the win with
-a third try scored by Leon Ward.
-It's tight at the top of Pool 4.
-Aberavon and Neath at the moment.
-Lowri Wynn and Rhys Llwyd...
-..with the round-up
-from the Foster's Challenge Cup.
-This week's competition
-concerns rugby too.
-You could see two Pro12 derbies
-over the festive period.
-We have two pairs of tickets.
-These are the games.
-The Scarlets play Ospreys
-on Tuesday, 27 December.
-Scarlets play The Blues
-on New Year's Day.
-All you have to do
-is answer this question.
-Which Welsh region finished highest
-in last season's Pro12 competition?
-Send your answers to
-Entries must be in by midday
-tomorrow, 19 December.
-Two pairs of tickets.
-It's been a great afternoon
-for the Scarlets.
-They beat Toulon in
-the European Champions Cup.
-The final score was 22-21
-at Parc y Scarlets.
-kicked all Toulon's points...
-..but missed a last-minute kick.
-The Scarlets celebrated.
-Their hopes of qualifying
-are still alive.
-They stay third in their pool
-but a superb win against Toulon.
-It's a good start to the season
-of goodwill for the Scarlets.
-After the break, we'll be venturing
-into the sea. Don't go away.
-I promised you mountains and ocean
-waves at the start of the programme.
-We've discussed mountains,
-so let's venture out to sea...
-..and to the Vendee Globe race.
-Welshman Alex Thomson was leading
-but it got a bit tighter last week.
-Let's find out
-what has been happening.
-The tempestuous southern oceans...
-..have left their mark on some
-of the Vendee Globe boats.
-It's a solo race and you can't
-receive any assistance.
-Romain Attansio had to steer
-his boat to Simon's Bay...
-..in order to spend two days
-fixing his rudder.
-I'm ready to go.
-I'm just waiting for the varnish
-to dry on the carbon plates.
-With seven boats already out,
-Romain is in 22nd and last place...
-..7,770 miles behind the leader,
-Armel Le Cleac'h.
-Welshman Alex Thomson is hot
-on the heels of the Frenchman.
-Flying down waves of 30 knots
-..before coming to an almost
-It means you are thrown around
-all over the place.
-You can hear the water
-rushing over the deck.
-It's now that your mind starts
-to wonder what's going to happen.
-What happens if the structure fails
-or if you hit something?
-I do wonder why I do it sometimes.
-As the top two boats
-pass by New Zealand...
-..there is nothing
-that Alex Thomson...
-..who is sailing
-without a port-side foil...
-..can do but watch Armel Le Cleac'h
-stretch his advantage.
-We are currently about nine days
-to Cape Horn.
-That's generally the theme
-of what's happening.
-Probably going to go around it
-The situation is changing a lot.
-Sometimes, I've got Banque Populaire
-two and a half days ahead.
-Sometimes, Banque Populaire
-is 12 hours ahead.
-And sometimes, the guys behind
-are within a day of me.
-The situation is fluid, shall I say,
-changing a lot.
-I'm trying not to get frustrated
-There is nothing I can do.
-There is no point
-in getting frustrated.
-The boats behind Hugo Boss
-are battling with the wild sea.
-The storm should pass quickly,
-but it will be fierce.
-We expect winds
-of around 50 to 60 knots.
-The biggest problem for the boats
-is sailing at a decent pace...
-..to keep ahead or behind the storm.
-Sailing too close to the eye of the
-storm can be extremely dangerous.
-It's a lack of wind that
-is troubling Armel and Alex.
-There's 190 miles between them as
-their boats slow down tremendously.
-the next few days are crucial.
-I am going to change my rhythm.
-I will calm down, allowing me to
-breathe, rest and do some repairs.
-A few things need some attention,
-but nothing serious.
-It has to be done to ensure
-the boat is 100% efficient...
-..ready for the next challenge.
-The next challenge...
-..is to be the first to reach
-Cape Horn by Christmas Day.
-The Vendee Globe.
-We'll continue following that.
-The daredevil Eric Jones
-is my studio guest.
-Have you done any sailing?
-No, it looks too dangerous for me.
-When I was on holiday,
-when my daughters were young...
-..my wife and children were strong
-swimmers but I'm a weak swimmer.
-My children said, "Mam, Dad doesn't
-like having water in his eyes."
-to parachuting and climbing.
-Stick to parachuting!
-I'm sure you can relate
-to a solo sailor's mentality...
-..as he takes on the elements.
-There's a similarity to what you do.
-There's a similarity to what you do.
-It's very similar.
-Sailing on the oceans takes a lot
-more time than climbing a mountain.
-There's loneliness in both but
-I enjoyed being by myself at times.
-It's nice being alone sometimes.
-We have more sailing next.
-If the Vendee
-is the Everest of the seas...
-..next, the sailing challenge
-for teams, the America's Cup.
-It's one of the oldest competitions
-in the world.
-It all happens in Bermuda next year.
-It's hotting up with a Welshman
-in the middle of it all.
-When his team won the last regatta
-in Fukuoka, Japan, in November...
-..to win the sailing World Series...
-..Ben Ainslie realized
-the first part of the dream...
-..of building a British team...
-..that could win the America's Cup
-in Bermuda next May.
-Two and a half years ago, we started
-with a blank sheet of paper.
-To achieve what we have, on and off
-the water, I'm very proud.
-Our sights are now set
-on Bermuda for the America's Cup.
-No British team
-has ever won the Cup...
-..which has strong links to Wales.
-the first Marquis of Anglesey...
-..gave it as a prize at a regatta
-at the Isle of Wight in 1851.
-One member of the team is aiming
-to bring the Cup back to Anglesey.
-Born and bred on the island...
-..we spoke to Bleddyn Mon before
-he set sail for the Caribbean.
-We're on Traeth Bychan.
-It's a very important place for me.
-This is where the journey started.
-It's where I first went out
-on the water almost 20 years ago.
-We've had a busy summer
-We stopped testing two weeks ago.
-Since then, we've packed up, got the
-containers ready to go to Bermuda...
-..and had a break
-before it all ramps up next month.
-I'm home at the moment,
-having a little holiday.
-..and had a break
-before it all ramps up next month.
-I'm home at the moment,
-having a little holiday.
-It's a while since my last holiday,
-probably at the start of the year.
-It's nice to be back home relaxing.
-Bleddyn's idea of relaxing
-won't be to everyone's taste.
-I spend a lot of time on the bike
-on Anglesey and around Snowdonia.
-I couldn't do it in Portsmouth.
-We have a specific programme
-so biking doesn't fit in.
-It's nice to be out
-and enjoy the fresh air.
-Fresh air is something
-he has plenty of in Portsmouth too.
-We've had a very good summer.
-We sailed on the Solent in two
-boats. We tested a lot of things.
-We raced two boats
-against each other.
-It's been great.
-Sailing the boats every day
-has been incredible.
-Being out on the water...
-..and sailing the most modern and
-fastest boat in the world is great.
-As a sailing team,
-we have twelve sailors.
-Every boat has six sailors.
-My role in the team is to trim the
-wing - the large sail in the back.
-I'm also the grinder,
-who creates the power for the boat.
-Everything on the boat is powered
-by the people who sail it.
-We have to turn the pedestals
-to create the power.
-No-one's yet been named
-a team member for next year's Cup.
-There'll be six on the boat.
-Some of those could change for every
-race to ensure people are fresh.
-I'm working hard
-to get myself there next year.
-we'll have one boat in Bermuda.
-we'll launch the racing boat...
-..which is the one we'll use
-for the Cup.
-It'll be an exciting time as it'll
-have the upgrades from the testing.
-It'll be the pinnacle of our design.
-Sailing it on the water
-will be great.
-Then we build
-for the first race in May.
-A big year for Bleddyn Mon.
-We'll be following him on Clwb.
-I'm joined by Eric Jones,
-You said you weren't keen
-on venturing into the water.
-Almost like Dai Jones!
-You've been on S4C with Dai.
-We delved into the archives.
-Here's Eric with Dai on an airplane.
-It's worth a look.
-How are you, Dai?
-How are you, Dai?
-It's nice outside.
-We're at about 3,000 feet.
-You'll jump at 4,000.
-You'll jump at 4,000.
-Good luck to you.
-Good luck to you.
-Out into the fresh air.
-You jumped as if it was nothing.
-Dai Jones didn't look as happy.
-I felt for him...
-..as he'd never been in an airplane
-without a door and seats.
-Did he get a fright
-when you jumped out?
-When I jumped...
-..the pilot put the airplane
-on its side so he could see me.
-Dai got scared
-and grabbed the cameraman's legs.
-You were obviously
-I've never jumped. What's it like
-when you're plummeting to earth?
-It's an experience.
-The freedom of flying is incredible.
-When did you start?
-A year before I started climbing.
-You enjoyed it immediately
-The problem was I didn't have much
-money. Parachuting is expensive.
-I started climbing
-and it took over my life.
-Climbing and parachuting.
-The poet Gwenallt
-said that when you turn 50...
-..you see what's affected your life.
-You turned 50
-and started basejumping!
-is jumping from a fixed structure.
-How did you start doing that?
-I've done everything late in life.
-I solo climbed the Eiger
-when I was 43.
-I got married when I was 49 and
-started basejumping when I was 50.
-I jumped into the Cave of Swallows
-when I was 66.
-You talked about jumping.
-You've done the biggest waterfalls
-in the world, the Angel Falls.
-When I was 61.
-Incredible. What was that like?
-That's my question for everything!
-I can't imagine throwing myself
-from those huge waterfalls.
-Here's a picture.
-It's totally different
-to jumping out of a plane.
-When you jump out of a plane...
-..you don't know you're falling
-at over 100mph.
-When you jump off the Angel Falls,
-you know you're falling at 100mph.
-You see the rocks passing you.
-It's an amazing experience.
-The images are astounding.
-Eric, it's an experience
-to be in your company...
-..not to mention to attempt
-what you've done.
-After the break,
-we turn to football.
-We have a hero in the studio.
-We take a look at one of the quiet
-heroes of the Wales football team...
-..when we come back,
-defender James Chester.
-Football now and to Wrexham,
-who had lost three successive games.
-Everyone was under pressure during
-their visit to Sutton yesterday.
-Amankwaah with the throw
-They fail to clear and the ball
-is in the back of the net.
-Riley is the man
-who turned the ball past Jalal.
-The defence fails to clear...
-..and Gomis pressurizes Riley
-who scores the own goal.
-Rooney back to Carrington.
-but the ball flies over White.
-Kai Edwards' shot
-deflects off the defender.
-The ball falls to Rooney.
-Sutton try to clear it.
-Back to Barry and Kai Edwards.
-Rooney shoots once again. That
-effort was miles wide of the target.
-Wrexham are starting to press.
-Evans to White.
-He doesn't control it well.
-Rooney takes it up as the visitors
-continue to press.
-bounces off a defender this time.
-Sutton scramble it away.
-gets the better of Carrington.
-Tubbs is there in support.
-Deacon has seen the run.
-Tubbs has been pushed
-towards the touchline.
-and Jalal had to make the save.
-Bailey has plenty of options
-to pick out for Sutton here.
-Deacon brings it down,
-turns and shoots.
-Jalal had to make the save again.
-Amankwaah to Biamou.
-Biamou set up Tubbs for the shot.
-Wrexham were relieved to see
-that disappear wide of the post.
-The long throw.
-Dundas beats Rob Evans.
-Biamou shoots from
-the edge of the penalty box.
-It's wide again
-and Wrexham escape again.
-Not good enough.
-We conceded an own goal.
-The lads knew what their strengths
-were to get the ball wide.
-They had a lad who could
-launch the long throws.
-It missed the first man and Riley
-managed to find the top corner.
-Are there any positives
-from today's defeat?
-There was a good reaction
-by Rob Evans to being left out.
-He came on and won a few tackles.
-We need people to start competing
-for places going forward.
-Jordan White got 90 minutes in.
-That's a positive.
-We had a couple of half-chances
-at the end that we needed to take.
-Two games against Southport next.
-Are you worried
-because they are below you?
-We have that
-massive home game coming up.
-The club's position
-just isn't good enough.
-We've got to get a massive
-performance and three points.
-Will there be a few changes
-Yes, it just
-hasn't been good enough.
-We had one high
-against Forest Green.
-we haven't scored a goal.
-It's not been good enough.
-Wrexham are closer to the bottom
-than the play-off places...
-..after losing three in a row.
-Big games against Southport
-coming up over Christmas.
-Dean Keates wasn't a happy man
-after Wrexham's defeat to Sutton.
-Eric Jones is my guest.
-We've discussed mountains
-but you're also a football man.
-Someone told me that you will
-celebrate your birthday in style.
-Where will you be on your birthday?
-Every time on my birthday,
-I like to go climbing or walking.
-This year, there is a big occasion
-at the Oval in Caernarfon.
-I like watching Porthmadog playing
-and also Caernarfon.
-They play each other on my birthday.
-I hope it will be a draw, 3-3.
-Three for Darren Thomas and three
-for Cai Jones for Porthmadog!
-Have you watched a lot of football
-during your lifetime?
-I lived in Flint during the 1970s.
-I used to go to watch Liverpool.
-At that time there would be
-15,000 standing on the Kop.
-The atmosphere was amazing.
-From being all alone
-on the rock face to a packed Kop.
-More football now and what a year
-it has been for Welsh football.
-The year of Euro 2016.
-The unforgettable summer.
-There were so many stars with Bale
-and Ramsey grabbing the headlines.
-However, one quiet hero
-was absolutely key.
-He is relatively new
-to the national set-up.
-It's the Aston Villa defender,
-It's been two years since Chris
-Coleman made James Chester Welsh.
-He settled into the team quickly
-becoming a crucial component.
-However, he wasn't part of
-Tony Pulis' plans at West Brom.
-but now in a lower division...
-..another Birmingham giant
-There was also an old pal
-on the way to Aston Villa.
-I met up with
-James Chester recently.
-You went from the semi-finals
-of the European Championships...
-..to looking for a club.
-A bit surreal but what attracted you
-to Aston Villa?
-Once I got over the hurdle
-of going down a division...
-..there wasn't much left
-for me to think about.
-It was coming in
-and playing at a great club.
-Being in contention to play in every
-game like I've done since I moved.
-People are obsessed
-with playing in the Premier League.
-Is it an issue for you?
-Not after the year I had at West
-Brom, not playing as much as I want.
-Being in the Premier League
-didn't matter as much after that.
-It was more important for me to be
-in contention to play every week.
-Then Steve Bruce rocks up.
-That must have been a nice surprise.
-It can always work two ways.
-I'd never played under the gaffer.
-I might not have been
-his type of player.
-My time at Hull had been
-really successful under the gaffer.
-We got promotion
-and the run to the cup final.
-With his record I thought
-he was the perfect man...
-..to come in
-and try and get us going.
-You've even broken your nose
-in tribute to him.
-Following in his footsteps.
-Hopefully, it's in a better
-condition than the gaffer's.
-It was a really good job but it's
-taken 27 years for me to break it.
-Was there a relegation hangover
-hanging over the club?
-Are they over it now?
-We're moving in the right direction.
-We were unbeaten in seven games
-before the Leeds game.
-That was a decent run.
-If we go on runs like that,
-I'm sure by the end of the season...
-..we'll be there or thereabouts.
-Are Wales also having
-a bit of a post-Euros hangover?
-The expectations have changed a bit.
-Had we been in our current position
-a few years ago...
-..people would have been happy.
-We're still in contention
-for qualifying for the World Cup.
-Now we've tasted success
-in the Euros, we all want more.
-We're still unbeaten in the group.
-We've been a bit unlucky
-with conceding goals late on.
-We did that against Serbia but
-the Georgia game was disappointing.
-We're still only
-four points behind Ireland.
-We still have to play them twice.
-I don't see any reason
-why we can't beat them.
-The summer was unbelievable.
-What was it like in Brittany,
-Bordeaux and everywhere else?
-An incredible experience.
-Having done so well, it was
-a shame not to make the final.
-The experience as a whole,
-playing the games...
-..spending time with each other
-in the hotel in Dinard...
-..is something we'll remember
-for the rest of our careers.
-It was great our families
-were there with us.
-It was nice for them
-to be a part of it.
-Could Wales have won it?
-There wasn't any reason
-why we couldn't have done.
-Whoever scored first in
-the Portugal game was a huge factor.
-All of us look back
-at what might have been.
-You don't reach such heights
-very often in football.
-Hopefully, we can go again
-and go one step further.
-That first goal was amazing.
-I've never seen a header
-like Ronaldo's in my life.
-It's no consolation
-conceding that goal.
-It was amazing though.
-Have you watched it back?
-I have seen it back.
-On a personal note...
-if you're down to mark him.
-If that's the only negative from
-the Euros, I'll hold my hands up.
-It was some jump.
-It's the end of the year
-so there are a couple of questions.
-Sporting highlight of the year
-apart from the Euros.
-That's very harsh.
-It is harsh but there is
-another great achievement this year.
-Leicester winning the Premier League
-has to be up there.
-It's something we won't see again
-for an awfully long time.
-Could you have gone there?
-I've heard reports
-that you might have gone there.
-It's not one of my finest decisions.
-Leicester came in with a bid when I
-was having a medical at West Brom.
-I spoke to Tony Pulis and decided
-West Brom was the right move.
-it would have been lovely...
-a Premier League winners medal.
-It wasn't to be.
-Sportsman of the Year?
-It goes without saying
-it's Gareth Bale.
-He won the Champions League as well.
-Joe Allen and Rambo
-were also brilliant.
-Joe has taken the Premier League
-by storm since then.
-A few Liverpool fans
-must be wondering why they sold him.
-There wouldn't be any complaints
-if it was one of them three.
-On behalf of everyone,
-2016 will stay with us forever.
-Good luck next year.
-I hope it's a good year for you,
-for Wales and for Aston Villa.
-Thanks very much.
-Thanks very much.
-It was great to meet James Chester.
-Aston Villa are performing much
-better since he arrived at the club.
-He was quite a player
-for Wales in France.
-Eric Jones has been my studio guest.
-He's an adventurer who's about
-to celebrate his 80th birthday.
-To look at you,
-you would never think you're 80.
-What is the next challenge for you?
-Only small ones these days.
-Like Trebor Edwards sang,
-I take one day at a time.
-I'm hoping to do some skiing
-and some easy climbing.
-If I'm here in a year...
-..I'll be singing
-Dafydd Iwan's song, Yma o Hyd.
-What is an easy climb for you?
-Everything must seem easy
-after what you've achieved.
-What you do isn't easy for me!
-We do have a surprise for you
-as it's your birthday.
-Catrin is bringing in a cake.
-It's just a little something
-from everyone at Clwb...
-..for you to enjoy at home.
-You are almost 80
-but still healthy and active.
-It's important to keep going.
-Yes, that is important.
-My wife bought a plaque
-.."Life is like riding a bicycle.
-If you slow down you fall off".
-That is so true.
-Your family are used to you now but
-have they worried over the years?
-I don't know, I think the wife
-was happy to get rid of me.
-Have the girls
-followed in your footsteps?
-My eldest daughter, Rebecca, has
-done some climbing, but that's it.
-They have more sense than me.
-You have seen some wonders
-across the world.
-You have seen so much
-of what you can see in an atlas.
-There is also a lot I haven't done.
-I'd like to have my time
-all over again.
-Is there one thing that you're
-glad you've done, a highlight?
-My solo ascent of the Eiger.
-I had been thinking about that
-I had to wait for days
-for the right conditions.
-In the end, it all went well.
-It was a project
-which ended successfully.
-An incredible solo ascent.
-It's been great to have your company
-in the studio.
-Thank you very much
-and I hope you enjoy your birthday.
-I hope it's a good game
-at the Oval too.
-has been our guest on Clwb.
-That's all we have time for
-in this programme.
-It's also all we have for you
-There is plenty of sport on S4C over
-the coming days and over Christmas.
-Sgorio is back tomorrow and we have
-live football on New Year's Day.
-There is also rugby from the Pro12
-and the Principality Premiership.
-Clwb returns in the New Year
-but at a different time.
-We're now on at 10.00pm on Sundays.
-We're turning into a nightclub
-but the content will be the same.
-Thanks to Eric Jones
-for coming in today.
-We'll see you all soon.
-Merry Christmas and goodnight.
