The Rugby Groud Guide

Enhance your rugby travel experience

About This Site

The aim of this site is simple. It is to provide the travelling rugby fan with access to all the information he (or she) needs to get the most from his sporting travels.

 

It is geared to someone like me. Someone who wants to know how to get to the ground, where to park, how to get a ticket, where to get a drink and, maybe, what else to do in the area.

 

I have looked for just this type of information. Often it is incomplete or plain out of date. Some club sites are very good; some, quite frankly, are awful. And while there are plenty of guides to football grounds around, the lack of a comprehensive rugby equivalent is marked.

 

This is not a travel web site, with rugby thrown in as an afterthought. There are enough of those available. This site aims to deliver the complete guide to rugby travel in the U.K. and Europe.

 

Enjoy your rugby travels.

Rugby’s Blame Game (Thu, 12 Apr 2018)
  As rugby union’s professionalism advances, and the stress on players continues to grow, only a drastic reduction in games for the elite players can avert a car crash of seismic proportions for the sport.       According to an excellent piece of research by player agency Esportif Intelligence, England’s players had played an … Continue reading Rugby’s Blame Game

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
