Rugby Greats Talk Rugby
International test match rugby returns to Cardiff this Autumn. And Legends Hospitality has arranged for some of the game’s rugby greats to meet and talk to rugby fans before the game at pre-match hospitality events held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cardiff.
With the Rugby World Cup just 12 months away, the four test matches will provide Warren Gatland the opportunity to review his squad and pencil in names for the plane that leaves to Japan.
Wales vs Scotland (Saturday, 3rd November – Kick Off: 2:45pm)
Although it is unusual to play a home nations side in the Autumn international series, this is an exciting test match. Scotland failed to live up to expectations in the 2018 Six Nations and will be looking to reignite belief in Cardiff.
Prior to the game, ex Scotland and British and Irish Lions Fly-Half Craig Chalmers will be talking about life as a Scottish international and his rivalry with present Scotland coach Gregor Townsend.
Wales vs Australia (Saturday, 10th November – Kick Off: 5:20pm)
Australia’s form in the Rugby Championship has not been good, but when they play in Cardiff there always appears to be renewed vigour. It will be interesting to hear what our guest, Gareth Llewellyn, has to say. Gareth Llewellyn won 92 caps as a lock forward for Wales between 1989 and 2004, captaining the side on 7 occasions. He also appears regularly on Scrum V and Radio Wales offering his well-respected views on the modern game of rugby.
Wales vs Tonga (Saturday, 17th November – Kick Off: 2:30pm)
Wales last played Tonga at Eden Park in New Zealand in June 2017, winning 24-6. Whenever the Tongans play we can expect fireworks and big collisions. There are lower ticket prices to attract families to the game and we are also offering hospitality with a pre-match lunch at a special price of £29 per person or £99 for a family of four. Our guest will be the mercurial James Hook, now playing for Ospreys and with a CV that includes the British and Irish Lions, Wales, Barbarians, Gloucester, and Perpignan.
Wales vs South Africa (Saturday, 24th November – Kick Off: 5:20pm)
The final test is against South Africa. The Springboks are still smarting after their defeat in the controversial test match in the USA last summer and will be buoyed by their victory against the All Blacks. Before the test match, ex Wales and British & Irish Lions scrum-half Brynmor Williams will give us his thoughts. In the 70s and 80s, Brynmor competed against Gareth Edwards and Terry Holmes for the Wales No. 9 shirt and still played 3 tests for the British and Irish Lions against the All Blacks in 1977.
Packages for the Scotland, Australia and South Africa games include a superb 3-course lunch, a guest rugby personality to talk about life in the game, and a big screen to watch the game.
