• Under-20 Six Nations rugby is coming to the Amex

    Ahead of the two Rugby World Cup 2015 fixtures which are coming to town later this year, the Amex has been selected as a venue for an Under-20's Six Nations fixture in the Spring.

    England will host France in the fifth and final round of matches on Friday 20th March, with the game kicking-off at 7:55pm.

    England's preceeding two games will be held at the 8,500 Brickfields Stadium, home of rugby union side Plymouth Albion and the Northern Echo Arena, the white elephant home of Darlington, which has a restricted capacity of 10,000.

    Rugby is notoriously hard on the pitches it is played upon, but there is a reasonable recovery period for the Amex. Chris Hughton's men are due to visit Blackburn Rovers on the 21st March and there is an international break on the 28th March before the Albion welcome Norwich to the Amex on Good Friday, 3rd April.

    Tickets are available from the club ticketing website.
