It cant be the stadium's 20th birthday because according to the article the first game was held in 19999 which is obviously is in the future. As such the bad news for Wales fans is that the grand slam this year didnt actually happen...

...it was a dream.

Guns, 19999 is when Ireland get close to the same number of slams as England and Wales. NZ will be called The Silver Suits and we’ll all be going to work on hover boards.

By 19999 NZ will be playing Tier 2 rugby but the good news for them is that the England team now starts each game with a Haka to reflect it's "cultural heritage"...... Very Happy

Taking my second trip to the Millennium stadium in August for the England game. Don't think the seats are particularly great as I booked late, but hoping to get a decent game and a good atmosphere - even though it won't be as red hot as a Six Nations game.

I went to the 62-5 game between England and Wales before the 2007 World Cup and it was a very flat, not helped by the fact that it wasn't a contest at all, so hopefully this one is better.

No need to worry. One of the plus points of the Stadium, is ALL seats have a good unobstructed view of the field, just some will be a little better. Only ones I try to avoid, is back rows of the lower tier, they just feel more claustrophobic and any high balls disappear from view and you cant see the big screens, so have to rely on little TVs scattered around if you want to see close play down the other half of the field.

Good to know, thanks. I'm top tier I think, behind one of the try lines, so it's more the distance, but I was top tier when I watched the NFL in Baltimore and my eyes managed it. I think they have a similar set-up with the stadium being quite steep and even the top tier isn't built too far back.

Does Robbie still get royalties since they changed the name?

Upper tier isnt usually a problem. The steepness, as you said, ensures a good view of the playing field, albeit the higher you are the smaller the players may seem, but that’s to be expected. If you are behind the posts, you may be in Glanmor’s Gap (backing onto the Arms Park), which isn’t as good as the main upper tier as in fact its one continuous tier, but still good viewpoints. Being behind the posts, if you are like me, does mean you check the big screen for play down the opposite end, but still not a problem with clear view.

Hope you have a great day, and I do hope you’ll still enjoy the experience when Wales win... thumbsup

The view is generally spoilt by pink cowboy hats and fake tan (and that’s just the blokes). People constantly walking past to buy beer, doing selfies on their mobiles and chatting about reality TV ( what is this obsession in Wales, maybe Gav on The Bachelor started it?).

The rugby seems largely a sideshow in Cardiff.

Incorrect and also an outdated view RE pink cowboy hats. Cyril’s latest WUM tactic; “Everyone in Wales says they love reality tv more than rugby. There’s substantial evidence.”

- evidence nowhere to be found.

Cyril; “Nah it’s all there mate I can see it.”
