#towerlives: In search of a rugby return to Butetown

Rugby players from Butetown, Cardiff, are few and far between in today's game amid claims the colour of people's skin prevented them from being picked to play for Wales in the 1950s and 60s.

But while attitudes have since changed, there is no longer a rugby team in the area.

However, some in the area believe the talent is out there and more needs to be done to take advantage of it.

The Welsh Rugby Union said growing the game at all levels was a key priority.

You can hear more about the sporting history and future of Butetown by listening to Radio Wales Sport between 19:00 and 21:00 BST on Wednesday.
