Club and Group Offer for Autumn Rugby International Series

The Autumn Tests see Scotland facing Argentina, New Zealand and Tonga and Scottish Rugby are offering swimming clubs and groups their best ever Group Offer and hope to welcome you to a match this season.

When Scotland play it is always a special occasion with the rugby being fast and furious, and supporters from around the country coming together to support the team as one! With plenty of entertainment on and off the pitch, it provides the perfect day out for family and friends to enjoy top class rugby in a friendly, safe environment.

First up are the abrasive Argentinians who will be keen to avenge their recent summer defeat to Scotland (19-21). Los Pumas have been performing well of late - narrowly losing out to South Africa on two occasions in the Rugby Championship. Boasting world class talent in the shape of Juan Martín Hernández, Scotland will have to be at their best to come out on top in the series opener.

Next up at BT Murrayfield are New Zealand. The All Blacks need no introduction – they are the best team in the world (ranked number 1), and current world champions. Scotland have never beaten New Zealand despite some close encounters over the years. Let’s hope their famous Haka can inspire the Scots to record a famous victory at BT Murrayfield come November 15.

The series will wrap up when Scotland host Tonga at Rugby Park, Kilmarnock. The proud Tongans are renowned for their physicality, and recorded a famous victory over Scotland two years ago in Aberdeen.  New Scotland coach Vern Cotter will be keen to avenge this defeat and put on an impressive showing for the Ayrshire crowd. The Scots will undoubtedly look to exploit the fast 4G surface at Rugby Park and release some of their devastating wide players such as British & Irish Lion Stuart Hogg, and try scoring machine Tim Visser. With both teams looking to bow out of the November test series on a high, this one promises to be an absolute cracker.

To celebrate international rugby coming to Ayrshire for the first time Scottish Rugby are pleased to announce that under-12s go FREE so come down and support the boys in blue!

Group offer: Tickets for under-18s start from as little as £5 per match, with a minimum group size of ten (eight children and two adults). What’s more, to thank adult organisers for their time and effort, the first two tickets for chaperones are absolutely FREE.

The Group Offer booklet can be downloaded in PDF format by clicking here.
