A great dvd, obviously you're only going to want to own this if you are Welsh as unless you are a glory supporter ;) The dvd shows highlights from all the games against the five other countries, including:

Wales 11 England 9. Wales beat England for the first time in twelve years in Cardiff indicating that 2005 could be their year. Gavin Henson won the game for Wales with an impressive kick.

Italy 8 Wales 38. Italy have never been that good at rugby and I am surprised when they win a game but the Welsh proved too strong for them even on their own turf and what finished a comprehensive victory meant Wales' challenge was beginning to mount

France 18 Wales 24 One of the best wins of the Grand Slam, two tries from Martyn Williams secured the victory away.

Scotland 22 Wales 46 a devastating display of rugby from the Welsh and the game was won within the first 15 minutes thanks to three tries

Wales 32 Ireland 20 this was the first time Wales had beaten Ireland in Cardiff and 22 years and a cracking performance meant that they completed the Grand Slam. The first time since 1978.

This dvd is a great review of the highlights from each game and a little piece of history. Even if you went to the games worth having in case you were too drunk to remember the full Ireland game.

Running time is over 2 hours and has extended highlights from the Grand Slam Party after beating Ireland

    This isnt what I'd call a review, just a brief description of each match, please try and give the review a bit more content.

    Gave this a "H" and it's an improvement on the CD review I rated earlier because it's concise in terms of what's actually on the DVD. Still a little brief but you seem to be getting the hang of things. This is only a personal way of doing things, but I like to add a bit of my own history and personality as to how and why I choose to review something. For example - Do you follow the Welsh rugby team in person, or play for a local club. If so, what anecdotes that might be relevant to the DVD (and in rugby there's always anecdotes 'cos of the quantity of beer the buggers drink!). Also add comparisons to similar products. That helps too. Like I said tho - It's getting better and if you maybe put some more meat into this review I'd happily re-rate to a better grade. Remember you're trying to help influence a buying decision. when you add reviews. Try to keep to quality rather than quantity, as a well written and often read review will earn you more £ and CP's, and most importantly it'll keep people coming back to read more. Might I recommend newty1977 or christianfilmcritic (find them through the member centre) and read their film reviews for great examples of how to review films and DVD's - I go back to read their stuff purely because I trust their opinion. Good luck and keep it going.
