Overview: The Welsh Triple Crown 3peat and their 8th Grand slam win.
The above cover was my dad’s and celebrates what can only be described as a golden era of Welsh Rugby. As shown on under the English Rose and Scottish Thistle this cover commemorates previous Triple Crown victories in 1976 and 1977.
The Triple Crown is a rugby competition (rugby union) between the countries of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is played out during the 6 Nations (was 5 until Italy joined in 2000) tournament. As Wales also won the Grand Slam (won all the games) this cover also celebrates the Triple Crown victory in 1978.
Welsh results for the tournament were:
Wales 9 vs. England 6 Wales 22 vs. Scotland 14 Wales 20 vs. Ireland 16 Wales 16 vs. France 7
