Rhys Scores a Birthday Treat

23rd February 2006

Cardiff Blues star, Rhys Williams showed his commitment to the team today by marking his 26th birthday with a glass of water rather than champagne!

With the Ospreys game so near Blues sponsor Brecon Carreg didn’t want Rhys to miss out on his birthday celebrations entirely and so presented him with a Birthday cake and his favourite tipple – the award winning Welsh Natural Mineral Water, Brecon Carreg.

“It can be hard for a professional sports person to celebrate during the season. With such a busy schedule of games and training sessions it’s important they stay in tip-top condition and Brecon Carreg is the perfect healthy option to mark this special occasion,” said Gill Bullock, Brecon Carreg Marketing Manager.

Rhys is well known among Blues and Wales fans alike as the type of player that can get a crowd off their seats with his pace and quick feet, and Birthday-boy Rhys is hoping that the game against Ospreys will be no exception.

Rhys commented: “Our win away at the Ospreys in December was one of the best games we’ve played this season. The icing on my birthday cake would be to repeat this result with a win at home against the Ospreys next Friday!”
