With the country blanketed in snow on March 3, Tuesday and Wednesday evening sees the postponed Welsh Rugby Union National Cup quarter-finals take place. The tie of the round on Tuesday sees two of the founder clubs of the WRU in action - Championship holders and current leaders Pontypool visiting Premiership holders and current leaders Merthyr at The Wern. Pooler are unbeaten this season, including knocking out current second-placed Premiership club Carmarthen Quins 23-8 in the last round, and will no doubt relish their underdogs tag after normally starting every league match as favourites due to the controversial ring-fencing of the Premiership.
The Scarlets have confirmed that South African international No.8 Uzair Cassiem has signed to play for the region next season. The 28-year-old, who has won eight caps for the Springboks, will join from the Cheetahs after the conclusion of the current Guinness Pro14 campaign. Cassiem, who can play across the back row, becomes the second non-Welsh qualified player to sign for the Scarlets this month following the lead of New Zealander Blade Thomson.
Justin Tipuric and Hallam Amos will boost a Wales Sevens squad that coach Gareth Williams believes can challenge for medals at the Commonwealth Games. The Wales senior XV pair have been named in their country's Sevens squad for the Games in Australia next month. The duo are included in a 12-man party to head to Queensland in April, fresh from being part of Warren Gatland's Six Nations squad which finished second behind Grand Slam winners Ireland.
The Welsh Rugby Union have told a supporter who complained about drinkers ruining a Wales game it’s not their responsibility, although they are considering changes. A Wales fan paid £260 to take his family of four to watch the Six Nations match against Italy at the Principality Stadium. He then sent an email to the Union after a pint of beer was spilt over his wife and their experience was constantly disturbed by beer dripped from rested pints on the canopy above them, as well as those carrying and fetching drinks from the bars.
