Richard, Millie, and Robbie enjoyed their recent visit to the Parc Y Scarlets in Llanelli, the home of Llanelli RFC, which they visited as part of their PDC 'Wales' topic on local sports. They started their visit by reading information at the front of the stadium on the statue of Welsh rugby legend Ray Gravell and this is what they found out:
The Llanelli RFC player, who earned 23 caps for Wales, died suddenly while on holiday with his family on October 31, 2007. David Williams-Ellis, a world-renowned sculptor, created the bronze sculpture which takes pride of place outside the stadium. They also looked at the cobbles that have the names of all the clubs players that have played for Wales.
Richard, Millie and Robbie then managed to have a look inside the stadium and were centimetres away from there the Scarlets players train and play their games. Needless to say, they were very excited!
They then had a walk around the Scarlets lounge area where they looked at some of the photos, jerseys, trophies and plaques on the wall which demonstrated the history of the team and previous competitions they have won. They finished their visit with a healthy tea break on the bus and made their way back to the college.
As you can see, they all had a great day and are looking forward to their next trip.
