Rugby poses 'real test' for transport, Stephen Crabb says

Road and rail networks can handle Friday night Six Nations rugby in Cardiff, Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb has said.

He was visiting Network Rail's operations centre in Cardiff before Wales took on England in the opening match of the 2015 tournament.

Extra trains were being laid on to take thousands of fans to and from the game.

Mr Crabb said the match would be a "real test" for transport but he hoped it would show how well Wales can host major events.
