Whenever Wales travel for big tournaments or tours we've got a tradition of singing a Welsh song as a squad, and this year we've brought the big guns in.

We'll be singing 'Calon Lan' and 'Lawr ar Lan y Mor' at the World Cup in Japan so, to help us get in tune, we've enlisted the help of world-renowned opera singer Sir Bryn Terfel.

Rhys Patchell, Alun Wyn Jones and Rob Evans are our choir leaders, so we've had a few practice sessions and this week it's certainly gone up a level since Sir Bryn has got involved!

I'm a bit tone-deaf and, listening to the others, it sounds like a lot of us are. But what we lack in tunefulness we make up for with enthusiasm.

It's good fun and the boys enjoy it. In the practices so far, Bradley Davies has really shone through and Leigh Halfpenny and Ken Owens back themselves.

It was Rhys Patchell who taught me how to sing the national anthem and Patch has been showing Sir Bryn around our base at the Vale of Glamorgan Resort. He'll be at our team meeting and watching training, so it will be awesome to have him around.

Wales will get a special welcome in Japan, so the boys want to respond in typical Welsh fashion 🎶 Who better to help us practise than opera legend Sir Bryn Terfel?
