It used to be a commonly held thought that many Wales football fans couldn’t stand rugby and rugby fans weren’t too keen on Welsh international football.

However, as we know many are supporters of both sports – and so it was conclusively proved in the bars of Riga last night as the colourful Wales Away following packed out anywhere that had a screen showing Wales v Fiji.

And as these scenes filmed by Welsh football journalist Laurence Mora show, the fans of the round ball were ecstatic at the victory of those wielding an oval ball!

As usual as is traditional with any Wales Away trip the fans were on top form, singing, dancing and ingratiating themselves with the no doubt bemused locals in Riga, who we’re certain enjoyed the entertainment of the Welsh fans ahead of the Euro 2024 qualifier against Latvia.

There was even an impromptu singing session with the famed Wales football band The Barry Horns from the balcony of their apartment in the city, who blasted out a few Welsh football classics including perennial favourites Men Of Harlech and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You accompanied by Wales supporters.
