Young Newcastle Falcons fan off to Twickenham

Newcastle Falcons fan Luke Short admits he was the subject of his friends’ jealousy when he walked into school on Monday morning after winning tickets to the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final at Twickenham on 30 May.

Luke won the prize after catching more tickets in 30 seconds than anyone else in Sunday’s ‘Grab a Ticket’ competition at Kingston Park.

The youngster stopped off at the competition’s inflatable dome outside the ground after competing in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup for Carlisle RFC Under-12s.

His team had narrowly missed out on a spot in the tournament’s quarter-finals but Luke wasn’t left disappointed for too long after discovering he would be attending English rugby's showpiece event at rugby HQ this summer.

The Grab a Ticket machine is visiting all 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs before the end of the season so you too could be at Twickenham come 30 May.

And Luke is certainly counting down the days until he travels down to London to watch Aviva Premiership Rugby’s finest take to the stage for the biggest game of the season.

“When I found out that I was the winner I just couldn’t believe it,” the Caldew School student revealed.

“I’ve been to watch the Falcons two or three times but this is definitely the best game I’ve ever had tickets for. My brother is coming with me and he’s really excited as well.

“I’m a big Falcons fan but I just really like watching rugby so I’m excited to watch whoever ends up in the final – I can’t wait.”

Tickets to the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final are selling faster than this time last year so with just six rounds to go, now's the time to click here to book your place at the world's biggest club rugby final.
