International Tickets

Details of the prices for the tickets for two of the three 2014 Autumn Tests (Argentina, New Zealand) and for the home games in the 2015 6 Nations (Wales, Italy, Ireland) as well as the details of Autumn Test Passes and the Season Passes have been posted here.

Please note that the Autumn Test against Tonga seems to be in a state of limbo. I have no details of location or price. It is also NOT part of either of the Season Pass packages. I expect the lack of information means that it will be played somewhere other than Murrayfield. As soon as I get details of prices for that game, I will put them up.

Similarly, I have no details yet for the away games for the 6 Nations. Again, they will appear in due course.

If you would like to place orders for tickets, please go to the relevant page on the website, select the number of tickets that you want in each category. The form will calculate the total amount due. Please print that form out and hand it to me WITH PAYMENT by the date specified. Details are listed in the forms themselves.

Commission
For information, the club receives varying amounts of commission on each ticket sold through the club for home international matches. This varies from game to game and season to season. For this season, 5% of the ticket price for Wales and Ireland 6 Nations games, 15% of the ticket price for the Italy game and 25% of the price for tickets for the Argentina and New Zealand games will go to the club. For the season pass tickets, 15% of the Full Season Pass ticket and 25% of the Autumn Test Pass tickets comes to the club. This is a significant source of income for the club and we urge you to buy all your international tickets for family and friends through this service.

A note on Handling Fees
We also charge a small handling fee on each ticket (2% of face value - max £3/ min 50p). This is considerably less than the fee that you would have to pay if you ordered the tickets yourself with the SRU online system (currently charging £2.40 per ticket or £4.20 per ticket for the Season Passes). It is also the only source of (small) profit for the club on tickets for away games. It has been pointed out to me that no such fee is charged if you were to pitch up at the SRU Ticket Office and buy the tickets yourself. This is indeed true, but the cost to you in petrol would more than outweigh any savings that you thought you were making. The club also would not receive any commission if you were to adopt that route. Any money remaining from the handling fees after the cost of processing payments through the club bank account has been deducted goes directly to supporting the club’s work.

Tickets for the Scotland vs England Game 2016
Its a long way off, but our club ticket allocation for the 2016 England game will probably be based on our 2015 ticket uptake. Priority for 2016 England tickets will be given to those who buy tickets this season should this be the case. Tickets will be in short supply for that game.

First XV coach sought

We’re a small, friendly club based in the middle of Penicuik, just outside Edinburgh, now in our 90th year of existence and currently playing in Scottish Regional East League Division 2. We have excellent facilities, including our own clubhouse – which has changing and showering facilities along with a licensed bar – and access to two floodlit pitches. In addition to senior fifteen-a-side rugby, we have an active youth section and we run Annual Sevens and Veterans’ (Over 35s) tournaments. Penicuik Rugby Club is also an active member within the Penicuik SportHub.

We are looking for a UKCC Level 2-qualified coach to help us to grow as a club. Alternatively we will be happy to consider applicants with a UKCC Level 1 qualification who are ready to progress to the higher level – we will wholeheartedly support them in that progression and will assist the successful candidate in their continued “professional” development in whatever way we can. We know that we can offer an outstanding learning environment for relatively new coaches to help develop their style or provide a new challenge for an already experienced coach – previous holders of this position have gone on to successful professional coaching careers.

If you are interested in this opportunity, or would simply like more details, please contact Andy Law (Rugby Convenor) by email (info@penicuikrugby.org) or phone (01968 675769 [H], 0131 651 9154 [B]) to discuss.
