Big-gar surprise for Principality Member sets up dream rugby weekend

A Principality Building Society Member from Gwaelod-y-Garth got the surprise of her life as one of her rugby heroes delivered VIP tickets to her home to watch Wales v South Africa this weekend.

Laura Fear, 24, opened the door to outside half Dan Biggar who handed her a pair VIP hospitality tickets for the final game of Wales’ Under Armour Series at the Principality Stadium.

The customer service assistant won the exclusive Member Rewards prize draw, which as well as the tickets included: a two night stay at the Clayton Hotel in Cardiff, a signed Wales rugby shirt, a WRU supporters club membership for one year, a pre-game tour of Principality Stadium, the Captain’s Run and £250 which has been transferred straight into her Principality savings account.

An avid Welsh rugby fan since she was young, Laura played herself throughout her time at university. 

She said: “I am in complete shock that Dan Biggar delivered the tickets himself and can’t quite believe he's been to my house. I am a huge Ospreys supporter, as well as a big fan of the national side, so it couldn’t have been a better player to be on the other side of my front door when I answered!"

"It's my mum’s birthday this week so I’ll be taking her along to the game with me as a treat. I honestly can’t thank Principality enough. It’s going to be an amazing weekend".

Dan Biggar said: "It's always a pleasure to pay a visit to a Wales supporter, especially with such a brilliant prize to hand over. Laura has an amazing weekend lined up thanks to Principality’s Member Rewards. Hopefully the team will make it a memorable one for her."

Principality has given away more than 300 tickets to its members during this series.

Julie-Ann Haines, customer director at the Principality Building Society, said: “Principality like to reward the loyalty of our Members by giving them something in return. Thanks to our partnership with the Welsh Rugby Union some lucky Members have the chance to meet their rugby heroes. We can imagine Laura was quite surprised to see Dan Biggar standing on her doorstep. Creating great memories is what we want to help our Members achieve. Let’s hope it’s a win on Saturday for Laura and her mum.”
