RBS 6 Nations Tickets

Please see attached application forms for the 2015 RBS 6 Nations. This has been sent to known VPs and players.

The usual rules apply about not buying tickets as gifts or selling to others.

In recent years some people have placed photos of their match tickets on social media sites such as Facebook/Twitter which has resulted in them being copied and sold illegally on 3rd party sites. The RFU requires clubs to instruct members not to place tickets allocated to them on such sites. This will help ensure that the Club doesn’t unknowingly contravene the Ticket Application Conditions which would result in a sanction against the Club and a reduction in match tickets for future games.

As usual you need to be a paid up player 17 or over, or a VP (paid up for 2014/15) to be eligible to apply.

Closing date is Wednesday 24th September

Have your say

The Rugby Football Union wants to ensure that as many people as possible can follow and take part in rugby whether as a participant, spectator, volunteer, coach or match official. To help us with this we want to speak to people like you, who may play, watch or volunteer in rugby or want to take part in the future. We would like to ask some questions about your perceptions and experience, and whether you have any impairments or a disability.

Please answer the survey fully. It is completely anonymous, there is nowhere we ask for your name and all the responses will be put together into one report which will help us to consider if we need to provide more opportunities for disabled people. We will store your information securely and in line with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998.

2014 IWRF World Championships start 4 Aug

21072014-120651-2014_IWRF_Wheelchair_Rugby_World_ChampionshipThe sixth IWRF Wheelchair Rugby World Championship will start two weeks from today on Monday, August 4th in Sparekassen Arena Fyn, Odense. Forty-two game enticing match-ups later, one of twelve participating teams will be awarded the prestigious gold medal, and a coveted spot at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.

With the official opening ceremony and game between Denmark and Belgium just 14 days away, it is crunch time for players, coaches and organizers ahead of what promises to be the most unpredictable and highly contested World Championships to date.

Event Chairperson of the Local Organizing Committee Mette Holstein Arnesen is very excited to enter the last leg of preparations, and looks forward to welcoming teams and fans alike to the “big dance” in Odense, Denmark.

“There certainly is a lot to look forward to for everyone involved. The fans can expect an action-packed, intense show from some of the toughest and most committed athletes in the world. We have and will continue to do everything in our power to provide the optimal conditions for these teams and players to bring their very best game forward and produce a thrilling tournament for the live audience, as well as viewers at home” Mette Holstein Arnesen says.

Denmark looking to surprise

Several teams including reigning champions USA, Paralympic champions Australia, and former world champions Canada have already declared themselves title challengers, and they can expect stiff competition from the likes of Japan, Great Britain and European champions Sweden. Even hosts Denmark, who in the past year have moved up from 12 to sixth on the IWRF World Rankings, might surprise a few people, according to player/coach Thor Johansson.

“We have improved a lot over the past couple of years, and today our setup is more professional and focused than it has ever been before. While USA and Australia might be in a league of their own right now, other teams are catching up, and I count us among those who are really starting to close the gap. With the help of the Danish audience, I think we will be stronger than ever in Odense. It will definitely be the greatest sporting experience so far for the guys on the team, and we really want to do well and finish in the top five, Thor Johansson said”.

Denmark faces off against Belgium at 4.30 PM on Monday August 4 in the opening match of the 2014 IWRF Wheelchair Rugby World Championships. That game is immediately followed by a match up between New Zealand and France, while Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Sweden and USA have to wait until Tuesday to jump into the action.
