London Welsh fan becomes first Grab a Ticket winner

London Welsh season ticket holder Carol Curtis became the first Grab a Ticket winner on Sunday and admits she is now counting down the days until the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final.

Carol won a pair of tickets to the Twickenham showdown on May 30 after collecting the most tickets from Aviva Premiership Rugby’s inflatable Grab a Ticket machine before the Exiles’ game against Sale Sharks.

She snatched 38 in just 30 seconds, more than anyone else on the day, to book her place at rugby HQ but with the Grab a Ticket machine visiting all 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs before the end of the season, you too could be at Twickenham come May 30.

And although her beloved London Welsh are unlikely to make it to the final, 49-year-old Carol, who is a Data Processing Manager for Oxfam, insists that won’t dampen her enthusiasm for the big day.

“I’m really excited for it – I managed to go to Twickenham to see England against Australia last year and it was a brilliant experience, so I’m excited to go again,” she explained.

“I just love Premiership Rugby, so I don’t really mind who makes it to the final – it would be quite good to see Northampton Saints but I’ve seen all the teams and I just love watching rugby.

“This is my first year as a season ticket holder at London Welsh but I saw quite a few games when they went up last year.

“I’ve absolutely enjoyed the Premiership experience despite the results this year. You get to see such great rugby and you see some of the best players in the world playing, so it’s fantastic.”

The Grab a Ticket Machine will offer fans of every Aviva Premiership Rugby club the opportunity to go to Twickenham to see the Premiership final, so make sure to visit when it comes to your club with round 15 seeing Harlequins and London Irish hosting the fun and games on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Carol did just that at the Kassam Stadium on Sunday and admits she is excited to visit the home of rugby only a year after re-igniting her love affair with the sport.

“I used to play rugby years ago and a friend of mine got me back into it last season,” she added.

“I started going to Welsh last year buying a ticket at each game before getting a season ticket this time around.

“The results might not have been there for Welsh this season but getting the chance to go to Twickenham will be great – I’m really looking forward to it.”
