Wales fans 'expecting big things' for Six Nations campaign

Wales rugby skipper Sam Warburton has said that pressure will be heaped on his team in this year's Six Nations after an impressive World Cup showing.

His men made the last four of the competition during the autumn, and will kick off their latest campaign against Ireland in Dublin on Sunday February 5th.

Fans staying in Cardiff hotels can cheer Warburton's side on when they play their first home game against Scotland on Sunday February 12th.

"I think they're expecting pretty big things from us. I was walking past the Millennium Stadium the other day and noticed the French game was sold out. I think that's the expectation from the fans and we expect that as well and we'll put that pressure among ourselves," he told the BBC.

As part of their Six Nations preparation, Wales have travelled to Poland for a pre-tournament camp which is allowing the players to focus on their upcoming five matches.
