Club together for RWC semi showdown

The Welsh Rugby Union has called on supporters to give local rugby a boost and gather in clubhouses around the country in their droves for Wales’ Rugby World Cup semi-final clash with South Africa next Sunday – and promises to open the doors to Principality Stadium for free if Warren Gatland’s side reaches the final.

The union is asking its passionate home guard of supporters to head to rugby clubs for the semis, but promises a Principality Stadium party to surpass all others if Wales beat the Springboks to reach a potentially historic first final.

Club packs, to help create that special atmosphere to cheer on Gatland’s side, have been distributed to the 320-member clubs around the country by the WRU.

Both clubs and supporters can now also download extra resources online https://www.wru.wales/rugbyworldcup/show-your-support/, with the Union strongly recommending local rugby clubs as the best venues for the shared experience of uniting behind the national team this weekend.

When the 31-man Wales RWC Squad for 2019 was announced on 1st September each player nominated a grass roots club to reveal the selection (which can be found below).

And fans can also use the WRU’s online clubfinder https://community.wru.wales/club/club-finder/ to seek out the clubhouses of the likes of Alun Wyn Jones (Bonymaen), Justin Tipuric (Trebanos) and Jonathan Davies (Whitland) to watch the semi-final showdown.
