Rugby in Wales is as ingrained into the culture as coal mining and all-male choirs. Its roots in Welsh soil go back to 1850 when Rowland Williams first introduced the sport in Lampeter. By 1881, the Wales Rugby Union (WRU) was formed, and the Wale's rugby team played its first international.
The team's main stadium is Cardiff Arms Park, and the nickname "the Dragons" is sometimes used of them. The Welsh team uniform consists of red jerseys, shorts, and socks, though an alternate grey uniform is sometimes worn. The jerseys are faced with an ornamental version of the Prince of Wale's feathers.
Wales competes in the Six Nations Championship against England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, and France. They have 26 championships in the league, a tie for first with England. They also participate in the Rugby World Cup, which occurs once every four years. Wales is considered to be a top-tier rugby team.
One of the most famous achievements of the Welsh rugby team was their adoption of a
four three-quarters formation, which had eight forwards and seven backs instead of the then-usual nine forwards and six backs. This innovation propelled them to a golden age from 1893 till 1911. Soon, the new formation became nearly universally used by all rugby teams.
Wales' team lulled with the economy during the 20s, did not play during World War II, and saw a resurgence after the war. A second golden age for Wales came from 1969 to 1979 when they had one of the greatest teams of all time. Some highlights of later years include: the ten-game winning streak of coach Graham Henry in 1998, hosting the World Cup in 1999, and back-to-back Six Nations' championships in 2012/2013.
