Admiral staff win trip to see Wales play France

Local employer Admiral has given two members of staff a dream trip to Auckland to see Wales play France in the Semi Finals of the Rugby World Cup.

Craig Jenkins from Swansea and Julia Pring from Cardiff each won the opportunity to attend the game, which kicks off at 9am GMT in Eden Park on Saturday.

After the Welsh win last Saturday, Admiral began organising the prize together with the Welsh Rugby Union. On Monday, staff received an email announcing the competition, however, in order to be in with a chance to win, staff would have to answer a very tricky question – How many WRU/Admiral jerseys will the Welsh National team use for the 4-match autumn series and RBS 6 Nations games each year? Not an answer easily found on the Internet.

Craig and Julia were able to work out the number, 256, and were the lucky two chosen to go. They will leave from Heathrow at about 4pm tomorrow and will arrive in New Zealand on Friday.
