TRAVEL NEWS FOR LONDON WELSH AWAY

Blues travel to Old Deer Park this Saturday to renew their long-term acquaintances with London Welsh on what is set to be a hectic day in and around the Twickenham with local, national and international matches in the area (kick off 1pm).

If you are traveling to the match on the Followers Coach, please be advised the outward journey will now leave Goldington Road at 9am, rather than the advertised 9:30am. The supporters coach will then leave ODP shortly after the final whistle with South Africa v Samoa and England v Wales screened live in the Scrum Bar on arrival back at the Blues.

London Welsh are expecting a large crowd at ODP for the Blues encounter during the day and access to the clubhouse may be limited, to that end the host side are providing a marquee at the ground for supporters to watch the England v Wales game and soak up the pre-match atmosphere.

The Exiles are selling pre-booked tickets to get into the marquee, but for the clubhouse simply buy a match day ticket via http://www.london-welsh.co.uk/ or on the gate and head immediately for the clubhouse with access on a first come first served basis.

The pre-booked marquee tickets will cost £30 but will get you access to the marquee (and entertainment) along with your match entry (standing ticket only). The link to buy tickets is http://www.odprwc.com/.

The special ticket includes entry to the London Welsh v Bedford Blues Championship match on the main pitch followed by access to the on-site marquee where there will be a Q&A hosted by Sky Sports Rugby presenter John Paul Davies with Welsh Rugby Legends Jonathan "Jiffy" Davies, Gareth Thomas, Colin Charvis, Stephen Jones and Ieuan Evans.

There will also be entertainment from Chris ‘Korkey’ Corcoran, top Welsh comedian, TV presenter and co-host of the BBC Radio Wales Saturday Morning Rhod Gilbert Show who will be appearing for a fantastic ‘Korkey’s Welsh Rugby World Cup’ comedy set. Not forgetting Welsh Choirs, Welsh bands, big match build up, big match screens, hog roasts, welsh pies and other great food throughout the day and the opportunity to win RWC tickets!

Plenty of road closures will again be in place for the Rugby World Cup games at Twickenham. They may affect you going to Twickenham and the routes available to supporters, but heading towards Chiswick M4/M25 shouldn't be affected (although obviously might be quite busy). The link for a more detailed travel plan is available at http://www.richmond.gov.uk/home/rugby_world_cup/rwc2015_community_impact/rwc2015_transport/rwc2015_roads.htm.

Thank you for your ongoing support, and the hundreds that made the trip to the Richmond Athletic Ground last Saturday to outnumber the Scots #COYB.
