The acclaimed silverware was hosted by the Port Talbot Specsavers store to build up the excitement ahead of the Judgement Day IV tournament (30 April), as part of a tour that saw the trophy travel more than 100 miles to eight locations in Wales’ rugby regions.

Specsavers in Port Talbot welcomed Osprey lock, Lloyd Ashley, to the store to meet local customers, fans and staff.

‘Sought-after trophy’

Nick King, director of Specsavers in Port Talbot, said: ‘It’s not every day that we have the opportunity to bring sporting stars and a much sought-after trophy into our store, so to say we were thrilled to host this event is an understatement.

‘At Specsavers, we pride ourselves on being a community optician and to uphold this standing we’re always striving to engage with all members of our community. Bringing the silverware into the store was an exciting way to show this.'
