Wales head coach Warren Gatland will announce his Wales squad for the RBS 6 Nations right here on Monday.
Warren Gatland's 2010 RBS 6 Nations Wales squad will appear first online at www.wru.co.uk at 12.55pm on Monday 18th January.
The official Welsh Rugby Union website will carry the news of which players have made Gatland's third Championship squad as well as a detailed video interview with the man at the helm of Welsh rugby, before any other outlet.
"The WRU website produces a wide range of news and feature material in video, audio and written versions on a daily basis and our webmaster would normally follow a squad announcement alongside the rest of our media partners," said WRU head of communications John Williams.
"On this occasion we are taking the extra step of ensuring our website is first with the news in video format.
"We are testing the water to see if we can increase traffic and make more and more Welsh rugby fans aware of the services on offer at wru.co.uk.
"Our online resources are growing and growing and frequent visitors to our site will already have seen a steady increase in video content alongside the staple diet of written and audio news.
"Warren's selection and his associated thoughts will still be sent far and wide around the world, but on this occasion fans are being offered the chance to get the news straight from the horse's mouth and we are expectiing this initiative to be extremely popular."

Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme. Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as part of the Olympics legacy in 2012 and the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to meet the apprentices on their first day in the job. The programme has been funded by the Hunter Foundation.
The WRU has launched a campaign to create a long term legacy for Welsh club rugby by highlighting the advantages of volunteering. Rhian Edwards, a volunteer at Seven Sisters, has enjoyed many benefits of her volunteering at a grassroots rugby club including being part of the Rugby World Cup volunteer workforce after being nominated by the WRU - and the WRU is asking for more people to develop their 'Welsh rugby roots'.
