How to get to the city    :

Air:         Cardiff Airport is 43 miles from Swansea. A bus service operates from the airport to Cardiff (Rhoose) Airport train station, where you can catch a train to Swansea, although you will have to change at Bridgend. Transfer time is about 2 hours.

Rail:       Swansea railway station is on the mainline from London Paddington.

                The stadium is about two miles from the station.

                Buses depart every ten minutes via routes 4, 4a, 120, 122, 125 and 132.

                A taxi will cost around £6.

Otherwise, if you have time on your hands, then it should take about 25-30 minutes to walk. From the station turn right and go up the High Street. At the traffic lights turn right into Neath Road and keep going until you reach the stadium on your right.

                Leave M4 at Junction 45

                Follow signs for A4067 towards the City Centre

Follow the signs for Stadium for approx 6 miles and then the ground will appear on your left hand side.

                Entrance to the Stadium car park is at the entrance to the Morfa Retail Park.

                Follow road around past Frankie & Benny's Restaurant, and take first left

                "Stadium Park and Ride"

Parking: There is some street parking to be had. If coming from the M4, you pass the stadium on your left and continue straight on towards Swansea, then after going under a bridge, there are a number of roads on the right, where street parking is available.

                It is then around a 10-15 minute walk to the stadium.

               

 

 

           

Accomodation

If you are staying in Swansea you are probably best advised to sleep in the city centre, rather than close to the Liberty, where there isn’t a lot to see and do.

There is a Marriott on the Waterfront, where there is also a branch of the Premier Inn and Morgan’s Hotel

The White House Hotel and Alexander Guest House are just outside the city centre.

The Dragon Hotel is located near to the railway station.

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats.
