We’ve got another ace competition for you as we have teamed up with Specsavers, sponsors of RaboDirect PRO12 match officials, to offer five lucky readers a fantastic prize of a pair of tickets to Glasgow’s 1872 Cup game against Edinburgh Rugby at Firhill on New Year’s Day (Sunday, January 1, kick-off 5.35pm).
McCoy’s are giving you the chance to win a once in a lifetime road trip around New Zealand. Having just been over myself it’s well worth a trip, especially with summer just around the corner…just watch out for the jet lag coming back. Plus there’s an exclusive Scottish Rugby Blog competition with good prizes below, so read on for a great chance to win!
If your intending to travel out to New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup then you need to make sure to regularly visit the new ScotlandRWC2011 Facebook page. This has just been launched and will provide invaluable information for all Scot’s travelling to the other side of the world.
It has useful information on events, travel etc and will also contain up to date information on the Scottish Embassies which are being established in Invercargill, Wellington and Auckland. The embassies will provide a safe haven of good beer, good grub and good craic for all Scotland fans.
A million thanks go to Colin in Wellington for this invaluable resource!
Are you going to New Zealand in the next few weeks for the Rugby World Cup? No doubt you have your flights booked, the kilt cleaned, match tickets secured somewhere safe and a camper-van booked to take you from Invercargill all the way to Auckland (presuming it doesn’t fall to bit’s en route).
As a travelling foot-soldier of Scottish Rugby you’ll know fine well that just as important as the game is the craic before and after games. Part of the fun in travelling to any new city is finding new drinking dens where a spot of libation can be found. Well, the good folks at Lion Nathan have agreed to put on Scottish Embassies in Invercargill, Wellington and Auckland through their Macs and Speights pubs.
More info will appear on the blog but also make sure you go to the facebook page – ScotlandRWC2011 where much more info for Scotland fans can be found.
Also check out the Speights and Macs websites for specific info on venues:
By means of a random drawing, the winner of our first competition is reader Gus. His favourite memory of last year was the following:
“Being Proud of our Rugby again
Not being patronised by the national press.
But Mainly, Hearing that Thom Evans would be OK.”
Which is a sentiment we can all get behind. If you check your email Gus we’ll get your prize out to you as soon as possible. Once again thanks to Vision Sports Publishing (publishers of the IRB World Rugby Yearbook) and Dundee HSFP for donating the prizes.
The latest issue of FHM is upon us, and once again it has a rugby angle allowing me to shamelessly share the goodness with you, the reader du blog. In addition to the chat you’d expect from cover girl Nicole Scherzinger, this month you get a FREE copy of FHM Bionic which is packed full of fitness and lifestyle articles from leading sports people on how to succeed on the pitch, the athletics track or perhaps the UFC Arena, aka the city centre on a Saturday night. Plus we have a link to get you £1 off. Read on…
