Parade starts Cardiff golden oldies' rugby festival

Even the pouring rain could not dampen the spirits of hundreds of veteran rugby players as they arrived in Wales.

About 2,000 players travelled from all over the world to Cardiff to celebrate the start of the Golden Oldies festival on Sunday.

It was the first time Wales has hosted the over-35s reunion after beating London, Toulouse and Treviso to secure the bid.

The week-long festival features legendary Welsh players including JPR Williams, Shane Williams and Graham Price and will see Wales try to break the world record for the largest scrum - a title currently held by England.
