Iestyn sure to be a winner if he can match namesake.

RUGBY fans will be waiting with bated breath today to see the union code's rising star Iestyn Harris take to the field. Up in North Wales however Iestyn has been making regular appearances on a field of a different nature.

Wales rugby fan and NFU Wrexham chairman Richard Tomlinson has named a Limousin bull Iestyn in honour of the new Wales star.

The national XV will face Argentina at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, with former Leeds Rugby League star Iestyn Harris making his debut after only 200 minutes of Rugby Union experience.

Mr Tomlinson said: "There are similarities between the two Iestyns - pace, strength and energy - but Iestyn the Bull is probably a better scrummager when it comes to feeding time!

"I will follow the developments of both Iestyns with keen interest."

NFU Cymru is on the look out for more sporting heroes on the fields and hills of Wales.
