Rugby World Cup breaking news live as Georgia take on Fiji

Judgement Day date confirmed for Wales stars

Away from the World Cup, this season’s Judgement Day Guinness PRO14 double-header will see Wales’ stars collide at the Principality Stadium on April 18.

Ospreys take on the Dragons at 3pm with the Scarlets welcoming Cardiff Blues at 5.15pm as the two teams from the west play host for the first time in the eight-year history of the event.

The Welsh Rugby Union and the regions agreed a new partnership until 2022, which ensures all four entities benefit directly financially from the agreement, where previously only the home teams gained from ticket income.

All four now play a home game at Principality Stadium as part of Judgement Day in alternate seasons. Eighty per cent of the ticket profits for the event are split between the two nominated home sides, with the two away teams receiving per cent.

Home season ticket holders gain free entry but must confirm attendance to reserve their seats with their relevant ticket office by the set deadline of October 25.

Ticket prices will be £25 middle tier (£10 U16s, concession) and £15 for both lower and upper tier adult tickets, although people are advised to look out for offers of £10 adults and £5 U16, which will accompany the official on sale date, likely to be in early November.
