Where to watch the final in Cardiff

    Heading to Cardiff this weekend with the missus, just wondering if I could get a few recommendations for a good spot to watch the Pro14 final while over there? And what would the locals think if I showed up in my Leinster jersey?

    Half of them would probably think that you were supporting Cardiff City, and the rest wouldn't mind!

    When I'm in Cardiff, this is where I go to watch rugby - loads of screens and if you go upstairs it'll probably be fairly empty. Don't be afraid to ask them to put it on one of the screens.

    With the Liverpool game on things might be a bit different, so plan B would be the City Arms which should be showing rugby.

    If all else fails, there's a Walkabout near Cardiff Central station.

    We ended up in O'Neills.

    We tried Walkabout, and after asking two staff members if the rugby would be on, they both said yes, but 3 minutes after kickoff, there was no sign of a screen showing the match (they were only showing the Championship Playoff Final, which was fair). So we moved on. Popped into the Philharmonic a few doors up which had the match on, but were playing ****e music and no commentary, so we moved on again. That's when we came across O'Neills. They were showing all the sport that day, but on different floors. We got lucky that there was a seat at the bar by one of their screens.

    We got to see the whole Leinster game and the Champions League Final came one as soon as the Rugby finished. It was a great night as there were Leinster fans and Scarlets fans there too. If anybody manages to find this in the coming years through a Google search, O'Neills will definitely be my recommendation!
