Dylan Scrums To The Rescue For Heroes

Category: Caught On Camera, Up Your Game, What's New

The match ball for this week's eagerly anticipated 6 Nations opener has arrived in Wales and our Dylan The Dragon couldn't wait to get in on the action. His fellow Dragons will be in more fiery spirits when confronted with white shirts during Friday's clash with England but it was all smiles as some tired legs arrived on his doorstep.

Royal Navy Chief Petty Officers Andy Gibbs and Tyrone Stock and Royal Marines Colour Sergeant Andy Crofts chose the Celtic Manor to conclude the penultimate leg of their epic walk from London to Cardiff to deliver the official match ball.

The trio will have covered the 183 miles in just eight days and they will present the ball at the Millennium Stadium during the Wales players' Captain's Run on Thursday.The impressive ball-carrying stats are all in a good cause as the military men have been shaking a bucket along the way, raising funds for Help 4 Heroes.

Over the past six years the Doing It For Heroes team have raised more than 330,000 for the charity. For more information and to donate, click here.
