Easter bought more than chocolate for 50 Rugby Stars this Judgement Day.
50 lucky Rugby Stars attendees from across Wales helped form the pre-match on field entertainment at Judgement Day 2. They took to the field in front of a 31,000 crowd to show what they had learnt at their 3 day WRU Rugby Stars camp during the Easter holidays in a game tag. Plus every WRU Rugby Stars attendee also got a free Judgement Day ticket and a family ticket to SWALEC Finals Day.
During the Easter holidays 9 WRU Rugby Camps were held across Wales with the likes of Alex Cuthbert, Leigh Halfpenny and Sam Warburton making guest appearances.
