Wales Rugby

Wales has a long and proud history as a rugby-playing nation. The WRU (the Wales rugby governing body) was established way back in 1881, which was the same year that the country’s national team played its first ever game.

Now, rugby union is thriving in Wales. As well as having a successful men’s national team, the country has a women’s team and several domestic teams that regularly represent Wales rugby on the international stage. This includes Scarlets, Ospreys, Gwent Dragons and Cardiff Blues, who all play in the Guinness PRO14.

The men’s Wales rugby national team is one of the world’s most successful. The team has won the Six Nations Championship outright 27 times and the Triple Crown 21 times. The team has even won the much-coveted Grand Slam 12 times. In 2019, the men’s Wales rugby team also became the number one ranked team in the world. This was the first time in a decade that the position had been held by a team other than New Zealand.

Due to the team’s success, many Wales rugby players are as famous as the team itself. For example, in 2008 Shane Williams was voted as the World Rugby Player of the Year, and 18 Wales rugby players have been inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame.

Similarly, the women’s Wales rugby team is also highly successful. The team was first formed in 1987 and they regularly represent Wales rugby in the Women’s Six Nations. The team also hosted the first Women’s Rugby World Cup in 1991 and won the Triple Crown in 2009.
