Wanted - wife with tickets

Extract from Gloucester v Newbridge match programme, 17 Oct 1979

'The dearth of tickets for the England and Wales international match at Twickenham in February has prompted the story, as yet unconfirmed, of the young English bachelor, a rugby fanatic, reputed to have placed an advertisement in the "Wanted" column of a Welsh newspaper.

"Gentleman, smart appearance, steady income, excellent prospects, offers hand in marriage to any lady able to produce two tickets for the England v. Wales match next February. Please send photograph - of the tickets !" '
