0:08:000:08:02

-I was a bit nervous in the first

-half. It wasn't the best start.

0:08:020:08:06

-I had hoped that Wales would score

-the first try to get that momentum.

0:08:070:08:11

-Only seconds left.

-Here's Botica.

0:11:290:11:32

-Is there one late

-chance for the home team?

0:11:320:11:35

-That was a high tackle surely.

-The linesman has spotted it.

0:11:350:11:39

-It's a penalty. What an opportunity.

0:11:400:11:42

-What drama at Eirias Park.

0:11:530:11:59

-It was a very hard match,

-very physical.

0:12:000:12:02

-We knew that Merthyr would

-bring a physical game.

0:12:020:12:06

-After we won down in Merthyr before

-Christmas they had a point to prove.

0:12:060:12:12

-For the first 40 or 50 minutes,

-they showed that.

0:12:120:12:15

-The squad is very close.

0:12:160:12:17

-You could see that at the end in the

-way we celebrated with Jacob.

0:12:180:12:22

-It was a fantastic kick.

0:12:220:12:25

-I just don't know where this game's

-going.

0:12:260:12:29

-to play rugby in a physical manner.

0:12:290:12:33

-Some of those tackles today I coach.

0:12:330:12:35

-They were chest high and we're

-getting penalised and yellow carded.

0:12:350:12:40

-You've got to ask the question.

0:12:400:12:42

-We're in competition with football

-and rugby league.

0:12:420:12:45

-If our game goes soft on us

-then as far as I'm concerned...

0:12:450:12:49

-..my young fellow

-can play rugby league.

0:12:490:12:52

-Because your not getting

-your physical fix.

0:12:520:12:55

-I think a couple of decisions today

-were really poor.

0:12:550:12:58

-It was sad to see

-rugby going that way.

0:12:580:13:00

-Dale McIntosh was not a happy man.

0:13:020:13:04

-You wouldn't want

-to argue with Dale McIntosh!

0:15:590:16:03

-Pontypridd take the early honours in

-Tier 1 with a bonus-point victory.

0:16:040:16:10

-Newport head up Tier 2

-after the opening fixtures.

0:16:110:16:15

-There's still a lot of rugby

-to be played this season.

0:16:150:16:18

-The league has split in two and

-they all start with no points again.

0:16:200:16:24

-It's an exciting league.

0:16:240:16:26

-Caryl James is a former

-international, now a commentator.

0:16:260:16:29

-You watch a lot of this league

-and we hear you on Radio Cymru.

0:16:290:16:33

-What do you make of the changes?

0:16:330:16:35

-They're trying to restructure

-the league.

0:16:360:16:39

-They've split the table and

-the top eight fight for the title.

0:16:390:16:44

-It's a way of shaking up the league.

0:16:440:16:48

-It allows the coaches more

-opportunity for development...

0:16:480:16:52

-..and to nurture the young talent

-in the Principality.

0:16:520:16:57

-It was great to see Ryan Conbeer

-score a superb try on Friday night.

0:16:570:17:01

-That was for the Wales U20s side.

-He plays on the wing for Llanelli.

0:17:010:17:05

-It bridges the gap...

0:17:060:17:08

-..between the Premiership

-and the regions.

0:17:080:17:12

-It's good to see new names like RGC

-and the moneybags of Merthyr.

0:17:130:17:18

-It seems that the talent

-is spread across more clubs.

0:17:180:17:22

-Yes, definitely.

0:17:220:17:24

-There is more competition now and

-we're seeing RGC coming to the top.

0:17:240:17:30

-It's great and there are some

-good facilities in North Wales.

0:17:300:17:34

-It's nice to see new clubs

-climbing to the top of the table.

0:17:340:17:37

-I don't think Dale McIntosh

-and Merthyr would agree with you!

0:17:380:17:41

-Quite a weekend in the Principality

-and for rugby in general.

0:17:410:17:45

-Time for a break now, but we'll

-have plenty more in a few minutes.

0:18:010:18:02

-Football is next with the Welsh

-clubs recording mixed results.

0:18:020:18:06

-Swansea City suffered a 2-1 defeat

-at Manchester City.

0:18:060:18:09

-Their new Brazilian star,

-Jesus, scored both goals.

0:18:100:18:13

-That's the second season in a row

-for them to suffer...

0:18:130:18:16

-..last-minute heartbreak up there.

0:18:160:18:19

-But their form

-appears to be improving.

0:18:190:18:21

-The same could be said of Wrexham.

0:18:220:18:24

-Dean Keates' men had won

-three of their last four games.

0:18:240:18:27

-They were home to Guiseley

-yesterday.

0:18:270:18:30

-Massanka back to Ollie Shenton.

0:18:390:18:44

-He looks for the run

-by Izale McLeod.

0:18:440:18:47

-McLeod is up against Jake Lawlor.

0:18:470:18:49

-Massanka asks for it

-but McLeod has a go himself!

0:18:490:18:52

-His effort flashes past

-the far post.

0:18:520:18:56

-Eleven minutes have been played

-as Walton takes the corner.

0:18:570:19:01

-It's in towards Jake Cassidy!

0:19:010:19:03

-That was a crucial touch from Dunn

-and it's another Guiseley corner.

0:19:030:19:08

-Walton will take the corner.

0:19:090:19:11

-Cassidy was once again the target!

0:19:110:19:13

-He hits the target!

0:19:140:19:16

-The former Airbus player

-scores against Wrexham.

0:19:160:19:21

-Guiseley are in front

-after only 12 minutes.

0:19:210:19:24

-Lund finds himself under pressure.

0:19:260:19:29

-Lund crosses towards Massanka!

0:19:290:19:33

-Wrexham are level.

0:19:340:19:36

-Massanka strikes in his first start

-for the Dragons.

0:19:360:19:41

-What a brilliant goal.

0:19:410:19:43

-Wow!

0:19:440:19:45

-James Jennings.

0:19:490:19:51

-Massanka wants the ball

-and is full of confidence!

0:19:520:19:56

-A superb save from Maxted.

0:19:560:20:00

-I think the shot was deflected which

-made the save an even better one.

0:20:000:20:04

-Massanka is on fire.

0:20:040:20:07

-We've played an hour and despite

-scoring four goals in five games...

0:20:080:20:13

-..John Rooney is only a substitute.

0:20:130:20:15

-If he starts another game

-for Wrexham...

0:20:150:20:18

-..he has to be offered

-a new contract for next season.

0:20:180:20:21

-Rooney comes off the bench again.

0:20:210:20:23

-Carrington, the captain...

0:20:260:20:27

-..receives the ball, turns and plays

-a lovely crossfield pass to Lund.

0:20:280:20:32

-Lund gives it back to Barry.

0:20:330:20:35

-McLeod is on the far post.

0:20:360:20:38

-McLeod to Rooney!

0:20:380:20:41

-Rooney scores again and he's only

-been on the field for two minutes.

0:20:420:20:47

-Keates' headache gets even worse.

0:20:480:20:51

-Rooney scores off the bench again.

0:20:510:20:55

-Cassidy against Riley.

0:20:570:20:58

-Cassidy does brilliantly

-to release Derek Asamoah.

0:20:580:21:02

-Rankine is in support.

0:21:020:21:04

-Rankine.

0:21:040:21:05

-Kevin Hurst!

0:21:050:21:07

-Just wide of the post.

0:21:070:21:09

-It was on a plate for Hurst

-but he couldn't hit the target.

0:21:090:21:14

-Rooney stands over the ball.

0:21:160:21:18

-Rooney!

0:21:180:21:19

-A scintillating free kick

-from Rooney.

0:21:190:21:24

-A fortnight after his brother...

0:21:240:21:26

-..broke the Man Utd scoring

-record with a free kick...

0:21:270:21:30

-..Rooney has scored for Wrexham.

0:21:300:21:32

-I thought we were the better team.

-It wasn't at a tempo we wanted.

0:21:320:21:36

-We let them dictate the tempo

-and it got slowed down.

0:21:360:21:39

-A quick throw-in and a set back to

-Mitch, who dug a great cross out.

0:21:390:21:43

-It was an unbelievable effort

-by Tumbs.

0:21:430:21:45

-What an impact Rooney had

-on the game. He scored two goals.

0:21:450:21:49

-The second one, we're shouting

-at him to play it in the corner.

0:21:490:21:53

-He's had a go and

-it's bent past the keeper.

0:21:530:21:55

-Five on the bounce. That's 15 points

-we've picked up. We're delighted.

0:21:560:22:00

-Seven points between Wrexham

-and the play-off places.

0:22:020:22:06

-A trip to Dover next who are fifth.

0:22:060:22:08

-A good afternoon for Wrexham.

-I'm joined by Caryl James.

0:22:130:22:17

-We've discussed

-your Wales rugby career.

0:22:170:22:20

-You're a PE Teacher too.

0:22:200:22:22

-Are the pupils aware

-that they have a star teaching them?

0:22:220:22:26

-Yes, as a teacher, one of the main

-things I try to do every day...

0:22:270:22:31

-..is inspire my pupils...

0:22:320:22:34

-..and show them that girls have

-a bright future in sport too.

0:22:340:22:38

-I can go off to represent my country

-and come back...

0:22:400:22:43

-..and share these experiences

-with the pupils.

0:22:430:22:46

-It shows them the benefit

-of being part of a team...

0:22:470:22:50

-..representing a country

-and meeting new friends.

0:22:500:22:54

-A big part of my job isn't just

-improving fitness levels...

0:22:540:22:58

-..but also to inspire.

0:22:580:23:01

-What better way to do it

-than showing them Wales caps?

0:23:020:23:05

-You now teach and coach.

0:23:060:23:08

-Is that a natural next step

-in your career?

0:23:090:23:13

-After finishing playing, there was

-a gap to fill in my weekends.

0:23:140:23:19

-It was quite natural for me.

0:23:190:23:21

-We've now established a team in

-Cardiff, Cardiff Ladies Rugby Club.

0:23:210:23:27

-We've been together

-for six or seven months.

0:23:280:23:32

-They're an amazing crew.

-They've come together.

0:23:320:23:36

-They're a mixture

-of students, teachers...

0:23:360:23:40

-..lecturers,

-television scriptwriters.

0:23:400:23:44

-There's a very good ethos

-in the squad.

0:23:440:23:47

-If anyone out there

-wants to have a go...

0:23:480:23:50

-..we train every Wednesday night

-at Glamorgan Wanderers.

0:23:510:23:55

-We play on Sunday.

0:23:550:23:57

-We've played six games and won

-four of them so we're not bad.

0:23:570:24:03

-Definitely a good start.

0:24:030:24:05

-The message is, if you fancy a game

-get in touch with them.

0:24:050:24:09

-I look forward to the developments

-in the capital.

0:24:090:24:13

-Caryl James is with me.

0:24:130:24:15

-We're going to the capital now.

0:24:150:24:17

-There was a big ice hockey game

-there midweek.

0:24:170:24:20

-It was the first leg

-of the Challenge Cup semi-final.

0:24:210:24:24

-Cardiff Devils

-took on Belfast Giants.

0:24:240:24:27

-The Devils got the better start

-in the capital.

0:24:310:24:34

-Unfortunately,

-the Giants' goal minder was on fire.

0:24:350:24:38

-Jackson Whistle saved time after

-time. A proper whistle-stop.

0:24:380:24:42

-Joey Martin

-brought the first save.

0:24:420:24:44

-That was the pattern

-for the first period.

0:24:450:24:47

-The Devils pressed

-but Whistle hit the right note.

0:24:470:24:50

-This save from Guillame Doucet

-was brilliant.

0:24:510:24:54

-It began to look like nothing was

-going right for the Devils.

0:24:570:25:00

-Joey Martin was totally clear

-but Canadian, Whistle stood firm.

0:25:010:25:06

-The pressure

-proved too much in the end.

0:25:070:25:09

-The Devils pressed and Andrew Hotham

-finally beat Whistle...

0:25:100:25:14

-..at the second time of asking.

0:25:140:25:16

-It was soon 2-0

-thanks to Gleason Fournier.

0:25:190:25:22

-The score started to reflect

-the Devils' performance.

0:25:220:25:26

-As happened all game,

-back came the Giants.

0:25:300:25:34

-Derrick Walser gambled

-and somehow scored.

0:25:340:25:37

-A deflection for the Giants.

0:25:370:25:39

-There was time for one more effort

-before the end of the first period.

0:25:410:25:46

-A lovely trick by Patrick Asselin

-but Whistle was there again.

0:25:460:25:51

-There was quite a game developing.

0:25:540:25:56

-The second period

-started in similar fashion.

0:25:560:25:59

-The Devils pressed.

-Hotham with the shot from distance.

0:25:590:26:03

-Layne Ulmer

-was on the spot to score.

0:26:030:26:06

-The Devils opened the gap once

-more but back came Belfast again.

0:26:060:26:10

-A brilliant solo effort

-from Chris Higgins.

0:26:100:26:13

-He stole the puck

-and took on the defence.

0:26:140:26:17

-He kept his head.

0:26:170:26:18

-The skills in front of goal meant

-that there was only one goal in it.

0:26:190:26:23

-Quite an effort by Chris Higgins.

0:26:250:26:28

-If that was good,

-the next was even better.

0:26:290:26:32

-Joey Martin with a one-man show.

-No-one could stop him, 4-2.

0:26:320:26:38

-Martin celebrated

-one of the goals of the season.

0:26:380:26:42

-The final period

-was crazy to say the least.

0:26:420:26:45

-A chance for the Devils

-to stretch their lead.

0:26:460:26:49

-Whistle foiled Sean Bentivoglio.

0:26:490:26:52

-A slick move from Belfast

-ended with Colin Shields scoring.

0:26:530:26:57

-There was one goal in it again.

0:26:570:26:59

-There was worse to come.

0:27:010:27:03

-Brandon Benedict stunned the Devils.

-The match was somehow level.

0:27:030:27:08

-Suddenly, the match

-had been turned on its head.

0:27:080:27:11

-Belfast hit the bar.

0:27:120:27:13

-They scored the all-important goal

-in the final minute.

0:27:140:27:19

-The Devils were confused by now and

-Jim Vandermeer scored from distance.

0:27:200:27:24

-The Devils face a big challenge...

0:27:250:27:27

-..in the Challenge Cup

-Semi-final second leg.

0:27:430:27:44

-I never thought Harry Potter

-would crop up on Clwb 2.

0:27:440:27:47

-However, the game Quidditch...

0:27:480:27:49

-..has moved from the fantasy pages

-of the books into the real world.

0:27:500:27:53

-All the terms are also written down

-so commentating is really easy.

0:27:540:27:58

-Even in Welsh,

-in this translation of the books.

0:27:590:28:03

-We have the terms and the game

-created by J K Rowling.

0:28:030:28:08

-Hang on to your broomstick,

0:28:080:28:11

-The most dysfunctional family

-I've ever been part of.

0:28:320:28:35

-I wouldn't change it for the world.

0:28:360:28:38

-We're quite an established team.

-The first in Wales.

0:28:390:28:42

-We're known in the community.

0:28:430:28:44

-We're a group of

-Harry Potter supporters.

0:28:450:28:48

-We express ourselves

-differently to normal nerds.

0:28:480:28:51

-We don't just read the books

-or watch the films.

0:28:510:28:54

-We express it in another way.

0:28:550:28:56

-We use sport.

0:28:570:28:58

-Quidditch has a large and

-very interesting rule book.

0:28:590:29:02

-You have three chasers

-and a keeper on a team.

0:29:020:29:05

-They try to get a slightly

-deflated volleyball, the Quaffle...

0:29:050:29:09

-..through the other team's hoops

-for ten points.

0:29:090:29:12

-The beaters play with

-balls called Bludgers.

0:29:120:29:15

-They run around the pitch

-trying to hit other players.

0:29:160:29:19

-If you get hit,

-you drop whatever you're holding...

0:29:190:29:22

-..and touch back into

-your hoops before carrying on.

0:29:230:29:26

-The Snitch is an impartial official.

0:29:270:29:29

-He has a rugby style tag

-attached to his shorts.

0:29:300:29:32

-The seekers try to

-get hold of that tag.

0:29:330:29:35

-If you catch the Snitch,

-the period is over...

0:29:350:29:38

-..and your team gets thirty points.

0:29:380:29:40

-It can appeal to everyone.

0:29:400:29:42

-There's no right or wrong way

-to play Quidditch.

0:29:420:29:45

-Anyone from any background can play.

0:29:450:29:48

-Both genders can play the same game

-and you can all be as involved.

0:29:490:29:53

-We're a diverse group.

-You'd expect us to be similar.

0:29:540:29:57

-All nerds who like Harry Potter.

0:29:570:29:59

-Some of us have seen all the films.

0:30:000:30:02

-Some haven't read a single word

-whilst others have read it all.

0:30:020:30:06

-It's great fun because

-there are so many positions...

0:30:090:30:12

-..and so many things

-you can do in a game.

0:30:120:30:14

-You find new people with

-interesting personalities.

0:30:150:30:18

-It brings everyone together

-and it's a lovely sport.

0:30:190:30:22

-People do barrack and shout things

-like 'ten points to Gryffindor'.

0:30:230:30:27

-People we convince to play admit

-it's harder than they expected.

0:30:270:30:31

-I've heard 'it isn't

-a real sport' many times.

0:30:320:30:35

-Until you actually go into it

-and feel the competitiveness...

0:30:350:30:39

-..and the adrenalin rush

-that comes from it...

0:30:390:30:42

-..there is no way you can deem it

-anything other than a sport.

0:30:430:30:46

-Come and give it a go.

-There are teams all over the UK.

0:30:470:30:50

-Contact one of those teams

-because it is worth trying it.

0:30:510:30:56

-Quidditch on Clwb 2.

0:30:590:31:01

-We might have live action soon.

0:31:010:31:05

-But it's back to

-more traditional fare next.

0:31:050:31:08

-It's a big week

-at the Ice Arena, Cardiff.

0:31:080:31:10

-The ice hockey is replaced

-by netball this week.

0:31:100:31:13

-A huge week for the

-Welsh women's netball team.

0:31:130:31:16

-They are taking on one of the

-best in the world, New Zealand.

0:31:160:31:20

-The next few weeks are very

-important for netball in Wales.

0:31:280:31:31

-The new season starts for the

-Celtic Dragons in the Superleague.

0:31:310:31:35

-Before then, Wales play

-two games against the Silver Ferns.

0:31:360:31:39

-A team of world stars,

-ranked two in the world.

0:31:390:31:42

-There was so much interest in

-these games the venue was changed...

0:31:420:31:46

-..from the usual place

-to the Ice Arena in Cardiff Bay.

0:31:460:31:49

-Clwb met up with one

-of the big stars, Suzy Drane.

0:31:500:31:52

-Netball in Wales is on the up.

0:31:540:31:56

-It's so exciting

-to be a part of that.

0:31:560:31:59

-I've got goosebumps from just

-speaking about and thinking about...

0:32:000:32:05

-..how exciting this occasion will be

-next week.

0:32:060:32:09

-Not to mention the start of a

-fresh season for our Celtic Dragons.

0:32:090:32:13

-It's a real united occasion for the

-people of Wales to be involved with.

0:32:150:32:19

-They can be passionate about the

-sport and its female role models.

0:32:190:32:23

-They haven't been over here

-since 1997.

0:32:250:32:28

-We'll be looking forward to

-hosting them in a brand new arena.

0:32:280:32:33

-We're moving over to

-the Ice Arena in Cardiff Bay.

0:32:330:32:36

-That's due to the demand for

-tickets. Fantastic for the game.

0:32:360:32:40

-Wales are ranked eight in the world.

0:32:410:32:44

-Not far away from the world leaders,

-New Zealand and Australia.

0:32:440:32:48

-Unlike Wales, those teams are

-packed with full-time professionals.

0:32:490:32:53

-We are closer than we have been

-to the top teams.

0:32:550:32:58

-We are going out on the court to

-compete and perform on Tuesday.

0:32:580:33:02

-We'll re-evaluate and

-go again on Wednesday night.

0:33:030:33:06

-We got close to South Africa...

0:33:080:33:10

-..when we played them

-in three tests last summer.

0:33:100:33:13

-We need to keep building

-on the momentum we've got.

0:33:130:33:17

-Building on the strength in depth

-that we have in the squad in Wales.

0:33:180:33:22

-Going forward we hope

-to compete with those top teams.

0:33:220:33:27

-Most of the Welsh squad

-do play for the Celtic Dragons.

0:33:270:33:30

-It's the only Welsh team

-in the British Superleague.

0:33:310:33:34

-The new season is upon us.

0:33:340:33:36

-They are hoping to

-improve on last season.

0:33:360:33:39

-They finished one from bottom.

0:33:400:33:41

-They finished one from bottom.

-

-The word I'd use is frustrating.

0:33:410:33:44

-I don't think we met our potential.

0:33:440:33:48

-We could have claimed more wins

-and we knew that as a team.

0:33:480:33:53

-We spoke about it.

0:33:530:33:54

-It was one of the most emotionally

-charged seasons I'd ever had.

0:33:550:33:59

-We knew we could have

-done much better.

0:33:590:34:02

-That last few games were very tight.

0:34:020:34:05

-The most memorable one was

-when I won the man of the match...

0:34:070:34:11

-..for the first time in eleven years

-of playing for the Dragons.

0:34:110:34:16

-I was still devastated that

-we lost that game by three goals.

0:34:160:34:20

-It was lost on one bad decision.

0:34:220:34:25

-That's sport, isn't it?

0:34:250:34:26

-We have to make sure that we end up

-on the other side of the fence.

0:34:270:34:31

-Not just marginally losing out.

0:34:310:34:33

-The way we do that

-is through consistency.

0:34:330:34:36

-We know that, we just have to do it.

0:34:370:34:39

-From training

-right through to matchtime.

0:34:390:34:41

-There are three new teams.

0:34:430:34:45

-It's good having

-more teams to take on.

0:34:450:34:48

-It means the season is longer.

0:34:480:34:50

-We have lots of games

-and our target is top four.

0:34:500:34:54

-We want to make the semis.

0:34:540:34:56

-Good luck to Wales

-against the Silver Ferns.

0:35:020:35:05

-Caryl James is still with me.

0:35:050:35:07

-Big games are great

-for the profile of the sport.

0:35:070:35:11

-It's an historic occasion.

0:35:110:35:14

-They haven't played for twenty

-years and they are two in the world.

0:35:140:35:19

-I'm taking a bus

-full of pupils from Llangynwyd.

0:35:210:35:25

-There's nothing better to inspire

-them than seeing a game like this.

0:35:250:35:30

-I'm really looking forward.

0:35:300:35:32

-We've already talked about

-the Welsh women winning in Italy.

0:35:330:35:37

-They have a lot

-ahead of them this year.

0:35:370:35:41

-The Six Nations tournament is a

-building block for the World Cup.

0:35:430:35:47

-That happens in August

-and they have a tough pool.

0:35:470:35:50

-They have to play

-Canada and New Zealand.

0:35:500:35:53

-Rowland Phillips and his team

-are ready for the challenge.

0:35:530:35:56

-You are also embarking

-on a new venture.

0:35:570:36:02

-You are part of the S4C commentary

-team for the women's game.

0:36:030:36:07

-What's that like?

0:36:070:36:08

-It's great because

-I have passion for sport.

0:36:090:36:11

-I've always wanted to...

0:36:120:36:13

-..promote women's sport

-and give it a higher profile.

0:36:140:36:18

-Being part of the team

-that brings the games...

0:36:180:36:22

-..into people's homes in Wales

-will be great.

0:36:220:36:25

-The Six Nations is

-a stepping stone this year.

0:36:260:36:29

-Will the Wales team set themselves

-targets for the tournament?

0:36:290:36:34

-How well do you expect them to do?

0:36:340:36:37

-They've been part of the world's

-top eight for a while now.

0:36:370:36:40

-A realistic target might be

-to be in the top six.

0:36:400:36:44

-The experience of playing in a Six

-Nations championship must be huge.

0:36:470:36:52

-How much bigger of a step

-is the World Cup Finals?

0:36:520:36:55

-It is a huge step.

0:36:560:36:57

-They play the world champs, England,

-every year in the Six Nations.

0:36:580:37:02

-It is a massive experience for them.

0:37:020:37:05

-One of my fondest memories...

0:37:050:37:07

-..is scoring a try against New

-Zealand in the World Cup in 2010.

0:37:070:37:11

-That'll stay with me forever.

0:37:110:37:14

-Thank you for coming in

-to talk to us, Caryl.

0:37:140:37:19

-Good luck with all your ventures.

0:37:190:37:21

-It's a busy period

-in terms of sport.

0:37:220:37:25

-Good luck to the netball team

-against New Zealand.

0:37:250:37:28

-After a clean sweep

-for Wales in Italy let's hope...

0:37:280:37:31

-..for a repeat performance

-against England next week.

0:37:310:37:34

-We'll see you next Sunday night.
