1. The Principality Stadium
What he said: “The Old Cardiff Arms Park was great but everything about the Millennium Stadium – renamed later as the Principality Stadium – is nigh on perfect save from some early teething problems with the turf which can struggle a little when the roof is on for prolonged periods.”
What we think: Situated in the heart of Cardiff, it manages to take noise levels to a whole new level. The high-banked stands and closed roof allow the noise to pour down onto the players on the turf below and is always worth a few extra points to the Welsh every time they play there. It’s place at the top of the best rugby stadiums list is totally justified.
