“Paddy Power has an established reputation in the United Kingdom and the Welsh Rugby Union is delighted to welcome it as our official betting partner, pills ” said Craig Maxwell, arthritis Head of Sales and Marketing for the Welsh Rugby Union.

“Like Welsh Rugby Union, Paddy Power is a synonymous brand in its field. This, along with the company’s enthusiasm for rugby, is why we chose to align ourselves with Paddy Power and we are looking forward to a successful partnership.”

To coincide with the launch of the partnership, Paddy Power is running a special promotion that will see it award all new customers placing a minimum bet of ten pounds with a bonus valued at £20. In addition, the bookmaker is doubling its odds on the Wales versus New Zealand try-scorers market including first, last, a try in 80 minutes and first and second half scorers.
