This weekend was a busy one for the Lubas Medical team. The Millennium Stadium hosted the first game of the 2014 Six Nations Championship on Saturday, and as we may have already mentioned, our guys had an important role to play.
The Wales-Italy game was a mercifully quiet one as far as injuries were concerned, but the Lubas lot still got right into the spirit of the occasion, joining in with the anthems and generally soaking up the famous Millennium Stadium atmosphere. We were hoping that the scoreline would be slightly more one-sided, but hey, a win is a win!
Still, rugby wasn’t the only sport we were involved with on Saturday. We also provided medical cover for Cardiff City’s match against Norwich, which meant that we witnessed a little bit of history. Craig Bellamy, who scored an important equaliser for Cardiff in the second half, is now the first player to score for seven different Premier League football clubs*. Congrats, Craig!
More importantly, of course, Cardiff secured a good three points (the game ended 2-1 to the home team) and yanked themselves up from the bottom of the table. So that’s two solid wins for the Welsh, and we were there to witness them both! A tiring weekend it may have been, but it was certainly rewarding.
Oh, and in case that wasn’t enough, we’re covering the Cardiff City development team’s match against Queens Park Rangers tonight. No rest for the wicked, eh?
*In case you’re interested, Bellamy’s magnificent seven are as follows: Coventry City, Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool, West Ham United, Manchester City, and Cardiff City.
