Jonathan

Two episodes of Jonathan to support the boys in South Africa

As the Wales Rugby team travel to South Africa, the crew on S4C's entertainment series Jonathan are preparing to return to the studio for two special episodes.

With the first programme on Friday 13 June, and the second on the following Friday, 20 June, Wales' two big test against the Springboks will be at the focus of attention.

Jonathan Davies presents alongside Sarra Elgan, with referee Nigel Owens contributing from a distance, since he'll be in New Zealand refereeing matches as part of England's rugby tour.

"We will miss Nigel in the studio. He's always up for a laugh. But, as one of the world's best referees, he must answer the call!" says Sarra Elgan. "If you thought that rugby was over for the summer - think again, because there's plenty still to come between now and next season, including Wales tour to South Africa of course."

Wales will face South Africa in their first test on Saturday 14 June, and again exactly a week later. S4C will bring us exclusive free-to-air highlights on the evenings of both games. With a squad plagued by injury, how confident can Wales be of beating the Springboks this time around?

"Wales have never beaten South Africa away from home. The injuries are a worry, but we mustn't despair! There are some young stars waiting in the wings who will take their chance to shine, and I have faith in them!" says Sarra enthusiastically.

A guest on the first show, who will give his opinion on Wales' chances, is former rugby international, and S4C pundit Arthur Emyr. He is joined by actor John Pierce Jones, famous for his role as football manager Mr Picton in the comedy series C'Mon Midffild, and he will give us the opportunity to focus on another huge sporting event this summer, the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
