Rugby World Cup 2015 feels a lot closer today after tickets went on sale to the general public.
The tournament kicks-off with England facing Fiji at Twickenham on September 18th, and the hosts will be hoping they are back there on October 31st for the final.
Before that, they’ll have to get past the likes of Australia and Wales - and that’s just in the group stage! South Africa, New Zealand and France will also fancy their chances of going deep into the tournament.
And, if any of the nations needed some motivation with 12 months to go before the big kick-off, then they should look no further than Game of Thrones actor Charles Dance following his rousing speech in a new promotional video for the tournament.
In the video, he’s talking to players from a variety of countries - including England’s Dylan Hartley and Wales forward Alun Wyn Jones. Throw in some referees, legends, groundskeepers and fans, and you have yourself quite a Team Talk.

For the record, lowest price tickets start at £15 for the tournament, which ventures to places like Stadium:MK in Milton Keynes and Sandy Park in Exeter.
There are some expensive seats available if you’ve got the money to burn though, with £715 the highest price available for a seat to watch the final. The cheapest adult tickets for the showpiece event are £150.
