Wales rugby mascot Logan James jumps for joy

It is a dream come true for nine-year-old Cardiff schoolboy Logan James - who will lead out the Wales rugby team as they face Tonga on Friday.

The young mascot, who attends Whitchurch Primary School, was nominated for the role at the Millennium Stadium by therapists at Bobath Children's Therapy Centre.

It is there he receives treatment for cerebral palsy.

The moment he learned he walkout alongside captain Ryan Jones and his favourite player, Leigh Halfpenny, was captured on video camera by his parents.

They posted it on the YouTube site - while the Welsh Ruby Union put the clip on Facebook - where its has already been viewed thousands of times.
