Inside Sport: Build our boys up, girls!

STEVE HANSEN is well known in rugby circles for being a family man and he has taken that a step further this week.

The Wales coach invited the mums, wives and girlfriends of his current squad to a hush-hush meeting at the WRU training base at the Vale of Glamorgan.

The point of the exercise was to tell his players' other halves how to cook !

They were given strict orders on diet and nutrition for the players as Wales prepare for the 2003 World Cup at the end of the year.

So, Martyn Williams and his squad will be stocking up on the carbs, protein drinks, pasta, rice, fish and chicken from here on in. Funnily enough, that is what most players eat anyway. Just another example of the coach leaving no stone unturned as he tries to get Wales ready for the daunting tournament in Australia.

Chocolate cake, anyone?
