LONDON (AP) — The police are on high alert. Players and coaches are on edge. The fans can't contain their excitement.
The national sport of rugby union is taking a back seat in Wales this weekend as Cardiff and Swansea collide in the Premier League for what is being billed as the country's biggest ever football derby.
For some, it will be a celebration of the remarkable rise up the English league standings of two clubs who only recently were in the pits of financial despair.
For others, the potential for the kind of crowd violence and fan hostility that has marred previous meetings between Wales' two biggest clubs is the real story ahead of Sunday's match.
Whatever the viewpoint, it should be some occasion at Cardiff City stadium.
