77 Sport Dry weather at last Wales’ 2017 RBS Six Nations tickets released AT LAST there was a bright and

sunny morning for the 212th Parkrun on Saturday (Sept 10). A big welcome was awarded to the

six runners from Lliswerry Runners running club, who are currently making their way around the Wales coastal path and were planning on running another 11 miles along the coast after their Parkrun fix. A big welcome, too, was extended

to visitors from Birmingham, one of whom helped Parkrun organisers to process the results when they encountered a slight problem. The big city Parkruns often

attract 1,000 runners, so they have more practice troubleshooting results compared to our Parkrun with a mere 91 finishers today. Male placings: Oliver THOROGOOD (SM20-

24) of Aberystwyth AC, was first over the line in 17:17 - 18th time in 73 appearances. Owain SCHIAVONE (VM35-39)

of Aberystwyth AC, was second over the line in 17:29 - has been first to finish on five previous occasions. Ian EVANS (VM35-39) of

Aberystwyth AC, was third over the line in 17:52 - has been first to finish on two previous occasions. Current standing in the Men’s annual points competition: Lord Graham NAIL (Unattached)

Aberaeron (125) lost to Aberystwyth (256-7) by 131 runs CHAMPIONS Aberystwyth

cruised to victory on Sunday (Sept 11) as they beat Aberaeron by 131 runs in their final game of the season. Aberystwyth won the toss and

elected to bat and they put on a champion performance to reach 256-7 from their 40 overs. Anthony Burrell and Andi Price

got the Champions off to a good start as they put on 49 runs for the first wicket. Burrell was the first man to go

when he was caught by J Fice off the bowling of Hywel Rees for a score of 12.

Price and Mel Jones then shared

an excellent partnership of 85 which saw them pass 100 runs with ease. Jones was then stumped by Fice

off the bowling of Sion Lewis having played well for a knock of 43. Andi Price was in good form,

hitting the ball to all parts of the ground but he was then caught by Euryl Rees off the bowling of Jacop Jenkinson for an excellent score of 82. Nathan Burrell made 24 before

he was out to the bowling of Sion Lewis while Zhaid Khan made 12 before succumbing to the bowling of Jenkinson. Sion Lathwood played a late

starring role as he scored an excellent 50 before being caught by Chris Strange off the bowling of Paul

200 pts. Ian EVANS (Aberystwyth AC)

198 pts. Caspar DONNISON (Aberystwyth AC) 192 pts.

graded 77.56% for the time 18:34 (fifth overall). Tom GARROD (VM45-49) was

graded 76.82% for the time 19:03 (seventh overall).

Abereraron crushed by Champs

Hughes. That meant that Aber finished on

256-7, leaving Aberaeron with a tough task.

Things did not go to plan for

Aberaeron in their innings as they lost wickets at regular intervals and never came close to Aberystwyth’s score. Fice was out for four to the

bowling of Zhaid Khan and he also bowled Alex Pitchford for a score of 14.

Graham Bird bowled Hywel

Rees for a score of five before Sion Lathwood bowled Chris Strange for a score of 21. S Jenkinson was also bowled by

Patrick Daniels as he claimed the first of his five wickets. Sion Lewis made 17 before he was

bowled by Iestyn Evans while at the other end Daniels was not done. Daniels had Euryl Rees caught for

a score of 13 before taking the wickets of Jacop Jenkinson and Louis Fice in successive balls to claim an excellent hat-trick. Paul Hughes was also bowled

by Daniels as the Aberaeron innings came to a close with the score on a disappointing 125 all out. Morgan Llewelyn did finish not

out on 19 for his side but it was too little too late as Aber claimed a six point victory to pass the 70 point mark for the season. Aberystwyth can now relax and

will be looking forward to defending their title next season - but, can anyone stop them?

matches in Cardiff are set to sell- out for the third season in a row as tickets to see England and Ireland at Principality Stadium in 2017 were released via rugby clubs around the country from Monday (Sept 12) Clubs and debenture holders

have a first right of refusal on access to the 74,500 capacity home of Welsh rugby and will be able to book their places in the stands at Wales’ national ground for the matches in February and March next year. The best way to get hold of

some of the hottest rugby tickets in the world game remains via your local club in Wales, with an official Supporters Club ballot to follow once all club allocations have been taken up, and no tickets expected to be available for release on public sale at this point.

“Demand for Wales’ home

Six Nations matches is always extremely high and we expect a third consecutive sell-out year, which will have a hugely positive effect on our ability to plan for the future,” said Welsh Rugby Union Chief Executive , Martyn Phillips. “The England game is always

as a huge draw for both sets of fans but the Ireland game is also a regular sell-out and on the back of all three home games – Scotland, Italy and France – reaching capacity last year, that’s a huge boost to the game in Wales. “All profits that the WRU brings

in from ticket sales are fed directly back into the game, funding our strategic planning for the future as we seek to ensure more people are playing more rugby more often in Wales. “We are blessed with some of the

greatest supporters in world sport in Welsh rugby and we expect people to be visiting rugby clubs around Wales in their droves over the coming weeks to pick up some of the hottest tickets in town.” The WRU has guaranteed that its

lowest price ticket for a Six Nations match at Principality Stadium will not rise above £40 for the next three seasons, with entry level tickets frozen at this price or below until 2020. Tickets to watch Wales face

England in the RBS Six Nations on February 11 are priced at £40, £70, £95 and £100 and are available at a rugby club near you now. To see Wales take on Ireland

on March 10, tickets are priced at £40, £60, £85 and £95 with clubs also recommended as the best port of call to gain face value access to Principality Stadium for this match.
