Families in Exeter have the chance to win passes to the much-awaited international rugby match between England’s Red Roses and the New Zealand Black Ferns, taking place at Sandy Park later this month.

To be in with a chance of winning a number of family passes to the game, people are invited to take a selfie of themselves walking a section of Exeter’s Green Circle – a 12-mile walking route that takes in the five valley parks within the boundaries of the city.

Exeter Leisure and Live and Move, Exeter and Cranbrook’s Sport England pilot aimed at encouraging people to move a little more in their everyday lives, believe that the Green Circle is a great collection of routes for anybody looking to get outside this autumn.

Cllr Duncan Wood, Lead Councillor for Leisure & Physical Activity, said: ““Following the Green Circle is a great way to enjoy some of the fantastic green spaces we have in the city, whilst at the same time getting out and getting active.”

“It’s right on the doorstep, free to enjoy and there’s even a chance of winning some tickets to the rugby by getting involved in this competition,” he added.

The Rugby match promises to be full of excitement and Exeter Chiefs women’s head coach, Susie Appleby, will be watching closely. She said: “We’re thrilled to see this international fixture in the South West, with the world’s top two teams set to renew their rivalry. The appetite for women’s rugby is growing in Devon and Cornwall, with the Exeter Chiefs women at the forefront of this development. To host a match of this magnitude will bring a wider audience to the sport, and hopefully serve to inspire the next generation of girls to pick up a rugby ball!”

Red Roses head coach Simon Middleton said: “Going to Exeter has proven to be a huge success in the Test matches we’ve had there to date. The atmosphere in the ground and the way they promote the games is second to none. The buzz we get from just arriving at the stadium on a matchday, it makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. It’s brilliant to be going back there. The ‘Live and Move’ challenge is a great initiative and will be a fantastic addition to supporters’ matchday routine. If you can, join the challenge to be in with a chance of winning a family ticket to the game.”

Those entering the competition can choose any part of the Green Circle route and take a selfie next to one of the ‘wayfinder’ arrow signs. They can then simply share it on the Live and Move social media using #RedRosesGreenCircle or email it to the project team on

The competition runs from Thursday 21 October until Thursday 28 October. The winners will be chosen at random from all entries on Friday 29 October just in time for the match which takes place on Sunday 31 October at Sandy Park.
