Rhiwbina welcomed Catalan Champions St Cugat RFC from the Barcelona region of Spain to North Cardiff for a game of rugby on Saturday 20th May 2006 whilst they were touring Wales and watching the Heineken European Cup Final at the Millenium Stadium.
Despite the awful recent weather the Whitchurch Hospital pitch was in great condition and the rain held off and we watched an enjoyable game of good competitive rugby that Rhiwbina managed to win 50-12.
Two tries for man of the match Nick DIAMOND and two for flying wing Chris CASE were some of the games highlights-
as well as 'THAT ANKLE TAP ON COOPS!!'.
Big thanks to Ref Dave BODILLY for providing us with some interesting and enigmatic decisions that kept the game as a contest.
Thanks also to Scott Kennedy and Rob Dunlop for inviting them for the game and assisting with accomodation and to Diego who was their man of the Match and Monty for organising the game.
A good day was had by all-see you all at the Summer Ball and AGM/BBQ/Players Awards Night . reff
