It’s rugby time! Take a coach to the Six Nations ChampionshipThe Six Nations Championship is in full swing and right now it seems likely that England can manage to defend their title. If you’re a rugby fan you still have the opportunity to see a live match as the competition is still running until mid-March with five of the remaining games taking place on UK soil. Since tickets are fairly dear, you should try to save some money going there: Taking the coach is a good option!

Coach trips to the Six Nations Stadiums

The remaining games will be held at Murrayfield in Edinburgh, Twickenham Stadium in London and Principality Stadium in Cardiff. All of these stadiums can easily be reached by coach from basically anywhere in the UK. A trip from Manchester to London for the England v Scotland match, for instance, is available from £4.50 with megabus. If you’re from Leeds and you want to travel north to BT Murrayfield, tickets for the bus can be booked for £14.10. Travelling from Birmingham to Cardiff will cost you as little as £7. Even if you can’t get a ticket to see your team live – travelling to the host cities is a lot of fun anyway!

Did you know that the 2017 Six Nations Championship is the first one to feature a bonus system?
If a team scores four or more tries is a single game, they are rewarded one bonus point. If a team loses by 7 or less points, they also get one bonus point. Whether this system will also be adopted for further Six Nations Championships will be decided afterwards.
