Wales lifted the Guinness Six Nations trophy on Saturday – but not before head coach Wayne Pivac managed to pull himself together and defend the style of curtains in his house!
Pivac’s backdrop during a live Friday night television interview after Wales were confirmed as champions attracted plenty of interest.
The floral-patterned curtains, complete with tassles, could possibly not be described as cutting-edge decor.
And the Wales boss had clearly received plenty of ribbing from players and management before he attempted to draw matters to a close.
“I just want to clarify the questioning of the decor of the house that I live in,” a smiling Pivac told reporters ahead of the trophy presentation at Wales’ training base.
“The curtains weren’t selected by me or my wife Mikaela – we rent the property – so I just wanted to get that out there and clear it up!
I don’t know Wayne Pivac but I like him. Hopefully with the Six Nations Champions win bonus he’ll be buying some new curtains though pic.twitter.com/hVxmWHY9jk

“They are not curtains of choice, but they are very thick and they keep the cold out and the warm in, so they do their job.
“Hopefully, I will be able to get some sort of sponsorship deal from a curtain place! There has been a lot of feedback on the curtains from all over the globe. It has taken off. I seriously hope I am going to get a windfall from that.”
Scotland’s victory over France on Friday, meanwhile, meant it was not curtains for Wales’ Six Nations campaign as they landed a sixth title.
