How to reach the stadium:

The stadium is a 10-minute walk from Twickenham overground station (just follow the crowd!),    or there is a free shuttle bus from the A316 near Richmond Station.


The Ground:      When RFU committee member Billy Williams was charged with finding a permanent home for English rugby he could not have forecast that 8.9 acres of market garden in southwest rugby bought for £5,572.12s and 6d would become one of the major venues in any sport.

Twickenham staged its first England international in 1910 in front of King George V, beating Wales 11-6.

The recently renovated ground features a hotel and health club in the new South Stand, plus 26 bars, The Council Room for RFU officials, the ERIC for former players, and the President's Suite are plush areas behind the scenes, permanently hidden from most of the Twickenham crowd.

In addition to rugby, Twickenham has also staged rock concerts and even hosts an annual Jehovah's Witnesses convention.


                A century of players are commemorated by blue plaques. These include Martin Johnson, Cliff Morgan , Jonah Lomu, and Prince Alexander Obelensky, who scored two tries against the All Blacks in 1936.

  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd?

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
