PRESENTER

This is my first stab at presenting a TV quiz, but I enjoy anything that has an element of competition because I'm such a competitive person myself. I'm also a huge rugby fan, and the Cwis Meddiant series combines neatly with the 2008 Six Nations Championship.

It's such an exciting series: it looks great, there's loads of tension and the prizes are fantastic. It's exactly like playing a game of rugby, but because the questions are based on general knowledge you don't have to be a rugby follower to enjoy it.

About Cwis meddiant

Although the quiz is based on the rules of rugby - teams answer questions to score tries, conversions and drop goals (see 'How To Play' video) - the questions themselves require broad general knowledge rather than narrow sporting knowledge.

The teams taking part represent grass roots rugby clubs from all corners of Wales, and the prizes on offer - rugby balls, training gear, tackle kit and so on - benefit the clubs rather than the individual contestants themselves.

The Welsh Rugby Union has come on board to help build up the prize pool and to provide the main prize for the series winners - a Big Day at the winning club, with WRU stars and experts on hand to offer expertise and advice that will make a real difference to the club's future.
