Suggested pubs in Cardiff?

I mentioned earlier, Ireland are heading to Wales for a pre-Six Nations warm-up match their Six Nations opener in the Millennium Stadium and I’m sure that the official blogger for the Irish rugby team is required to be in attendance.

Welsh folk : I’m looking for your suggestions of a venue for a pint of your finest local beverage, before heading off in search of the elusive bugger.

Where do you suggest in Cardiff (near the stadium) for a few pints on the eve of this sure to be fantastic match?
