Classic Moments – Wales win 2005 Grand Slam

Once more, The Sporting Week looks at some classic moments of sport during the year.

Coming up soon is the start of the Six Nations Rugby Union tournament between England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy.

In recent years, the contest has been highly competitive and seen some great action.

This years tournament looks like it will once again be a cracker with Wales, France and England having had positive autumns and their respected club teams and players finding form at the right time.

However, this classic comes from the 2005 campaign that saw Wales win the Grand Slam, despite playing more games away from home. This was the first time it had been done and has only been repeated once since by Ireland in 2009.

The video below is between Wales and England in the game that started the run for the Welsh.

The 2013 Six Nations campaign starts on Saturday 2nd February and The Sporting Week will have a comprehensive review of the tournament.
