There are a lot of people to thank for making the night a success.
Obviously a huge thanks to Warren Gatland. He spoke about his time playing for New Zealand and answered questions from the fans. There were some potentially tricky questions on the back of the Wales squad announcement this week, but to his credit he answered them all with a refreshing honesty.
We must also thank the Neath players coaches and back room staff from that memorable day for coming. It was great to see them all and see them enjoying the game. It was the first time some of them had actually watched the game.
We also thank Keith, Tracey and the team in the clubhouse. They couldn’t have been more helpful in the run up to the event and they all worked flat out on the evening, particularly the girls in the kitchen who worked non-stop in serving 190 portions of faggots and peas.
Thanks also to Rod from Low Cost Vans for his kind sponsorship of the evening.
And finally thanks to our volunteers who helped us out on the night – Simon for manning the door, Paula for selling the raffle tickets and Mike Price for giving us the historical background to the day.
