Wales face this cream of the crop this Autumn

There are just a handful of opportunities still available to see the current shining stars of the Rugby Union home nations teams, Wales, playing at venues in the UK between November 2012 and March 2013.

Four of the matches, which will see the current 6 Nation’s champions, pitched against teams from across the globe including Argentina, Samoa, Australia and New Zealand, will be played in the stunning Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. The final date in the tour will see the Welsh side traveling to the historic ground of Murrayfield in Edinburgh to take on the Scottish Rugby Union side in their own back yard.

The popularity of these events cannot be underestimated and tickets for the first two dates in the tour have already sold out with just a handful of tickets for the remaining dates still available. If you do not want to miss this opportunity to see one of the most scintillating sides in the game in action you need to go to StubHub and book your seats straight away.

Tickets for the series of friendly matches entitled ‘The Dove Men Series’ are priced from £91 at the Millennium stadium to £125 at Murrayfield. The prices vary at the grounds depending on the location of the seats that you wish to choose. If you book with StubHub, there are no hidden extras like booking fees or card handling tariffs. Unlike many of the other ticket handling websites the price you can see on the booking page is the one you will pay for the tickets.

Welsh Rugby Union is steeped in a long history and has enjoyed much success over the years winning the six nations twenty times since its inauguration. The team are the current holders of the trophy having won it for the third time at their home ground of the Millennium Stadium this year. This series of matches will serve as their preparation for that competition which will begin in March 2013 and is an opportunity for Rugby fans to see what is being hailed as one of the greatest Welsh sides of all time.

The team will face some of the opposition again that they met most recently during their very impressive Rugby World Cup 2011 campaign. During that competition they were narrowly squeezed into fourth place by Australia losing by just three points and will no doubt have a point to prove when the sides take to the turf in Cardiff on December 1st.

Another sumptuous fixture in the series is the visit of the reigning world champions the New Zealand All Blacks to the state-of-the-art grounds in Cardiff on November 24th . Although the Welsh side did not meet the Kiwis during the world cup it was the fixture that most fans watching the competition wanted to see. The stage is now set for the best sides in either hemisphere to meet in what is a ‘must-see’ match for all rugby union fans. Getting a ticket to see it live is truly the opportunity of a lifetime so don’t miss out.
