Christmas is a time of traditional values and of enjoyment, a time when sharing the occasion is something to be cherished. All these seasonal traits will come together in a festive sporting fixture to be played out at Sardis Road on Boxing Day… Pontypridd versus Cardiff.
This derby encounter between two age old sporting rivals has it all – a history that lives in the collective memory, a guarantee of high drama on the present day and the perpetuation of a fierce tribalism into the future. Its what Welsh Rugby is really all about.
After the stay-at-home excesses of Christmas Day, there can be no better remedy than to take a trip to the House of Pain on the Feast of Stephen, draw a large intake of fresh air and shout your team on to a famous victory. The best Christmas present that any Ponty supporter could wish for… a win against the big city rivals.
Sardis Road will be rocking on Boxing Day – the venue for a festive firecracker of a fixture. Make sure you’re there to join in the celebration of a true rugby tradition.
