I regularly visit my elderly parents and if there's a game on TV, my father and I will share the sofa and our passion for sport. We watched Ireland's last Six Nations game against England and both of us thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was nothing to do with halting England from a record 19 Test wins, it was more the fact that we played so well against a very good side. And it was a compelling game to watch.

Then along came Friday night, when my father and I looked forward to seeing the flair of such Welsh players as Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Joe Allen and Ashley Williams in a crucial World Cup qualifier.
