True, Unlikely, Welsh

Heston Blumenthal aims to rekindle people's love of traditional pub food by building a giant pie and transforming it into a fully functioning public house in the Welsh village of Minera. But that's not all - his tavern comes complete with a billiard table made from cod, tartare sauce and pea mousse - topped off with pickled egg balls - a supersized pork scratching big enough to feed the entire village and a fruit machine that pays its jackpot in snacks.
Unlikely as that sounds it pales into insignificance when set against the heroically daft, but wonderfully entertaining, notion that England as hosts of the 2015 Rugby World Cup could play their pool games at the Millenium Stadium in Wales.
