Admiral Group awards two employees with trip to Rugby World Cup semi-finals

Admiral Group has given two of its employees a trip to Auckland to see Wales play France in the semi-final of the Rugby World Cup.

The Welsh organisation offered staff the chance to win the trip by getting them to answer the question: How many World Rugby Union/Admiral jerseys will the Welsh national team use for the four-match autumn series and Six Nationals games each year?

Julia Pring, from Admiral Group’s customer service department in Cardiff, and Craig Jenkins, from the organisation’s customer service department in Swansea, were the winners.

Pring said: “When they told me I just broke down in tears. I was so excited. I had been talking to my friends about how amazing it would be to go to New Zealand for the semi-final and at the time it was just something we could dream about. I can’t believe I’m actually going.”

Jenkins said: “I’m still pinching myself. Everyone’s been so excited for me but I think they’re probably quite jealous too. I’m really am over the moon, it’s like winning the lottery.”

Admiral Group is the official shirt sponsor of the Welsh national rugby team. The organisation has offered its staff discounts on shirts, tickets to home games, and visits to the office from some of the team.
