And The Winner Of The Swansea v Barbarians Match Is . . . St. Helen’s

St. Helen's
It was a chance to relax, to briefly escape the political and economic ills besetting, along with much else in British life, rugby union in Wales. A bright, warm evening completely unlike the last full international at St Helen’s, an atrociously cold and sodden encounter with Tonga in 1997.
