The band Ocean Colour Scene

Ocean Colour Scene

Ocean Colour Scene

Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums, three of which went Top 5 – 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern – and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles commencing with 1996’s The Riverboat Song. They supported Oasis at their massive Knebworth shows that same year, and two years later helmed the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date. Their achievements have been nothing short of phenomenal.

From their days as Breton-shirt wearing disciples of The Stone Roses (debut single ‘Sway’) to million selling Britpop superstars (‘Marchin’ Already’ bumped Oasis’ ‘What the Story’ from the top spot in 1997) to long-term touring allies with Paul Weller, they have always stood shoulder to shoulder with the greats of modern British rock.

Alix Popham playing rugby for Wales

Alix Popham

Alix Popham

Alix Popham was never afraid to put his body on the line during a successful professional rugby career. Now he is summoning that character to win the greatest challenge of his life.

He started playing the game aged just 4 and would go on to a decorated career representing Newport, Leeds Tykes, Llanelli Scarlets and Brive, as well as winning 33 caps for Wales before retiring aged 30 in 2011.

Almost a decade on he was then hit with the hardest blow of his life – a diagnosis of early on-set dementia, brought on by the countless shuddering collisions out on the rugby field.

Yet Alix has embarked on a mission to seek a better future for himself and others like him. Just as when breaking the gain line on the rugby pitch, spectacular progress has already been made and while there are still some hard yards ahead, momentum is gathering like the roar of the Welsh anthem reverberating around the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
