International rugby extravaganza returns to Colwyn Bay


Tomos Hughes

THE HOTLY-anticipated Under 20’s Six Nations is set to return to Colwyn Bay next month.

Wales will once again play their home games at Eirias Park, and tickets are now available for two mouthwatering matches against Ireland on Friday February 1, and England on Friday March 15.

WRU Head of Rugby Joe Lydon said: “The north Wales public came out in force last season to support our youngsters, with all three of our home matches sold out ahead of matchday and we wanted to repay that faith by freezing the prices for this season.

“Eirias proved to be a fantastic venue for our Under 20 Six Nations matches last season with everyone involved in staging the matches showing a professionalism and enthusiasm for the games that helped to create a unique international experience for the players, coaches and supporters.

“We are delighted to have committed to Wales Under 20 playing their home Six Nations games in Colwyn Bay for this season and next.

“Danny Wilson’s side performed superbly to finish third at the Junior World Championship in South Africa and they will be looking to build on that success this season starting with Wales Under 20 v Ireland on Friday, 1 February, 2013.”

Tickets for the Eirias games are £15 for reserved seating and £10 (adults) and £5 (concessions) in the terrace and with last season’s games all selling out well in advance of matchday, supporters are urged to act quickly to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are available from: Colwyn Leisure Centre, on 01492 577900; Venue Cymru at or 01492 872200 or via
