Food heros of Welsh culture were spotted amid a sea of green wigs, and floating red dragons at Saturdays RWC game between Wales and the Irish. The leek, an emblem of Wales since the mid 16 th century, is often referred to in relation to St David's day on March 1st, but also has links to Welsh rugby (beware nudity).
Lamb (or were they sheep?) is revered in Wales in a similar way to lamb in New Zealand, but maybe the Welsh ruminants provide more entertainment in this video.
I am not sure what part of Welsh culture the chicken stands for but the guy on the left arrived in New Zealand with not much more than this suit...
