Getting ready for the Rugby World Cup 2019
Come on Wales!
In Wales rugby is everything, and here at Princes Gate we’re no different. We’re lucky enough to be the official water supplier for the Welsh Rugby team, a partnership we’re incredibly proud of. Every year, we get excited for the Autumn internationals and the big one, the Six Nations – but 2019 offers something very special indeed. The Rugby World Cup hosted by Japan.
Wales go into the competition one of the hot favourites and after a record-breaking winning strike of 17 matches – we’re officially ranked the world’s number one team for the first time ever. A fantastic achievement but as our captain Alun Wyn Jones has said, it’s just a number and when you’re at the top – you have a big target on our back.
We believe that the boys can pull off something truly historic and one thing’s for sure, we’ll be cheering them on every step of the way. Wales’ World Cup campaign kicks off on Monday 23 September with a big match against Georgia. We’re sure you’ve all got the fixtures to hand, but here’s a little run down of Wales’ group stage games – fingers crossed there will be a few more games to follow. Come on Wales!
