With just over one week to go until Wales’ rugby regions meet for the annual double-header at Principality Stadium, the media accreditation process for Judgement Day V is now live.

Cardiff Blues take on the Ospreys at 2.45pm, followed by Newport Gwent Dragons versus Scarlets at 5.15pm in the showpiece Guinness PRO12 double-derby on Saturday 15 April.

More than 50,000 fans have already booked their place – with tickets available at just £10 – and now media can apply to get their tickets too via the online media accreditation request form at: accreditation.wru.co.uk

After Saturday’s rugby extravaganza, Principality Stadium will throw open its doors again on Easter Sunday (16 April) for the WRU Finals Day which features the finale of Welsh Rugby’s Cup, Plate and Bowl competitions.

Events kick off at 1pm with Amman United and Caerphilly competing for the national bowl; followed by Penallta versus Ystalyfera in the national plate at 3.15pm. The day culminates with the National Cup Final when Pontypridd take on RGC at 5.35pm. Media are invited to apply for all three matches.

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
