The Big Game 5: Harlequins v London IrishThe Big Game has become a firm fixture in the Aviva Premiership calendar as Harlequins swap their smaller Stoop Stadium for the hearty home of English rugby with a Christmas clash at Twickenham against one of their league rivals. In this year's fifth Big Game, Quins take on London Irish in a repeat of the 2010 fixture, which saw the "home" side win 28-18. Last year things were not so rosy for Harlequins: going into the game with an all-conquering record of 11 wins in the Premiership, they slumped to a 11-19 defeat to Saracens in front of a capacity 82,000 crowd at Twickenham - a global rugby union attendance record for a regular-season game. This year the annual showpiece clash comes closer to New Year than Christmas, but you can still expect it to be a cracker of a game. With tickets as low as £10 for adults and £5 for children, the Big Game 5 is an ideal stocking filler for any rugby fan. Got to www.thebiggame.co.uk for more information.

About Twickenham Stadium

The home of English rugby at Twickenham is England's second largest stadium (after Wembley Stadium), with steeply banked stands that create an impressive roar when an international match is in progress. While rugby remains very much a second-choice sport in the rest of southern England, the stadium has had a profound effect on the whole surrounding area: Twickenham is the only part of London where the pubs will show rugby matches in preference to football, and where you're far more likely to hear Swing Low, Sweet Chariot than any football club songs.
