Rugby: Give It a Try!

Team Recommendation for Expats


As you’re aware, Ann is a huge rugby union fan, supporting both England and her local club, Harlequins (The Stoop, Twickenham, Middlesex). Unlike the rivalry in Football, the game stays on the pitch and whether you win or lose, there’s a hand-shake at the final whistle and then drinks in the bar. Yes, you can even have a pint whilst watching the game! There are a number of competitions, the main ones being, the Aviva Premiership, Heineken Cup, Amlin Challenge Cup and LV Cup. The season runs from the beginning of September through to May.

Some other local clubs in the Aviva Premiership are: London Wasps (Adams Park, High Wycombe, Berkshire), London Irish (Majewski Stadium, Reading, Berkshire) and Saracens (AllianzPark, St Albans Hertfordshire).

We are just coming round to the time of year for the Autumn Internationals which involves the home nations, together with France, Italy, Argentina and those southern hemisphere giants, New Zealand, Australia, Samoa and Tonga. England kick off against Australia at Twickenham on Saturday, 2 November at 2.30pm.

There is also a special 10th Anniversary Match between the England and Australian Legends, a repeat of the 2003 World Cup Final (well almost) at the Twickenham Stoop on Thursday, 31 October which promises to be a great evenings’ entertainment.

It’s a great game to watch, so we would suggest you give it a try!!
