Tickets on sale today but I was wondering how you get a wrist band to to Navy tent on the day? I can't find the answer anywhere and there was no answer when I rang RNRUFC customer service.

Hopefully one of you more experienced people will have the answer :)

You have to be going with a group who are organising their own marquee. There aren't many RN ones to be honest, I know the respective field gun associations used to do it, but there aren't many RN organisations big enough to warrant using a marquee (like the army regiments are for example) so most content themselves with a coach. For what it's worth, my group of mates stopped going on the coaches after an incident on the coach in 03, which I may or may not have been involved in!! We go for the whole weekend and would never consider going up for the day again, it's a great weekend out.

OK cheers - I've been on the website and it says that there is an RN tent (just the one mind you), any ideas as to how you gain access to it?

Not been drunk on coaches since I was in Uni a VERY long time ago - women's sports teams shouldn't be allowed to travel by coach....

My guess would be to be a patron of the RNRFU, but that is only a guess.

Unfortunately my brother has chosen 3rd May to get married so will be missing out once again (last year I left my wallet in a taxi the night before so spent the day tracking that down instead of going to Twickenham).

Oh well, there's always next year.

Last time I attended I went on a coach from Greenwich and met one of my old oppos before the game, had a few wets with him and ended up on the coach going back to Guzz, Bsatards woke me up at Drake Main Gate. Got back to Greenwich next day after having gone on the lash down Union Strasse.

My other half was not well impressed having posted me missing in action and me not being able to remember her phone number, whoops

Please do, as this is my official leaving run this would be a most fitting send off.
