Autumn Internationals 2018

Sporting events
This November we have been back at the Principality Stadium for four games of International rugby. The home side showed that they are in good form for a busy year ahead of them in 2019. Wales won all four games against Scotland, Australia, Tonga, and South Africa. It was the first time for Wales to beat Australia since 2008! We supplied engineers and microphones to take care of the pre-match entertainment, in-bowl announcements and music. Our sound engineer Kevin also enjoyed a bit of popularity after WalesOnline released an article about Pedro the Trumpeteer!
