I would like to thank you for your continued support of club rugby in England. You have contributed hugely to the on-going success of Aviva Premiership Rugby which has become one of the biggest and best supported domestic competitions in the world.
Last year we spoke to many season ticket holders across the country and they told us that they expected to be able to access the best seats for the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final before anyone else. The Final has established itself as a sell-out event for the past five years and continues to grow in stature and appeal; this year's Final will take place on Saturday May 25th at Twickenham Stadium.
It is therefore my pleasure to offer you an opportunity to apply for the best tickets exclusively before they go on general sale, via a ballot open to season ticket holders of all clubs. To find out more and complete your application, please visit: premiershiprugby.com/ballot. The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday, 23 September.
I wish you and your team the best of luck for what promises to be another exciting season of Aviva Premiership Rugby.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees, speaking to GRTV after the 35-10 over Zebre, was happy with the bonus point win over the Italian side but admitted Gloucester will need to tighten up for the return fixture in Parma.
Matt Kvesic was a try scorer and recipient of the Man of the Match award in Sunday's 35-10 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over Zebre. He praised the Italian side for their spirited opposition and admitted that next week's return game will be a tough one.
