Bit of a strange one. Was on the train yesterday wearing a Scarlets t shirt when a Scottish guy a few seats along seeing the logo engaged me in conversation. Apparently he had been at  a Llanelli v Australia game at Stradey many years ago.He remembers being quite drunk and at the end of the game making off with an iron cat which he claimed was quite a feature there at the time and kept it in his garden for several years until it rusted away . I have no recollection of a ferrous feline but he sounded pretty sure so just thought I would mention it on here just incase anyone can shed any light on whether any basis to his claim or if it was just a wind up.

Kidwelly is the land of the black cat (cath ddu)
Apparently the cat was the first thing seen after they emerged from the great plague and gave hope to kidwelliansTongue
