Full details have emerged of the enhanced security measures Welsh rugby fans will encounter for the first time at the Principality Stadium this weekend. Given the terrorist attacks in the UK this year, new procedures have been put in place for Wales opening autumn international against Australia this Saturday. These will include 100 per cent personal checks at the turnstiles, which will apply to everybody entering the stadium.

Fans are also being advised to leave large bags and umbrellas at home, as they will not be able to take them into the ground. Small bags and handbags will be permitted, provided they are no larger than 35cm x 40cm x 19cm. There are no bag storage facilities available at the stadium, so spectators are advised to plan ahead if they intend travelling to Cardiff with a large bag.
Small umbrellas are permitted, but cannot be used when the event is in progress, while there were will be strictly no golfing umbrellas allowed inside the venue. In a statement on the enhanced security, the WRU have said: The latest security measures include 100 per cent personal checks at the turnstiles and the advice to leave large bags and large umbrellas at home to avoid disappointment and causing further delay to fellow supporters entering the stadium.
Welsh fans will be converging on the stadium in their thousands this weekend
Due to the new measures, fans are being urged to get to the ground well in advance of the 5.15pm kick-off. The stadium will open three hours before all four Test matches this autumn, instead of the 90 minutes Welsh rugby-goers will be used to.
With more than 66,000 tickets having been sold for the Australia match and enhanced security in place, the message to all supporters is to get to the ground early.
The WRU have turned to Wales prop Samson Lee to deliver a personal reminder to that effect via a WRUTV spoof video. Lee acted out scenes filmed at the team hotel and the stadium to show supporters that poor planning ahead of match day now comes with the genuine risk of missing kick off.

The Scarlets star said: As a squad, we are used to working to a strict schedule where everything from our eating, sleeping, training, kit and transport is planned out to ensure the very best preparation for international matches.
The filming for the Don t miss kick off video has really hit home how well prepared we are as a team, but also shows the consequences associated with lack of proper planning.
With the enhanced security measures we are becoming accustomed to in the UK, this is an important message for anyone with tickets for the Under Armour Series and supporters need to arrive early for the 100 per cent search regimes, or, like me in the film, they risk missing kick off!
Ask any player and they will tell you the best feeling in the world is hearing the roar of the stadium crowd during the anthems.
We want every single fan in their seats for the start of the match and I really hope this film raises awareness and motivates our supporters to plan ahead this autumn, as well as being a bit of fun! While South Wales Police stress there is no specific threat to Cardiff, bosses at the Principality Stadium routinely work closely with the Police and the Wales Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit to deliver appropriate security measures for major events.
Stadium manager Mark Williams said: The safety and enjoyment of supporters on matchday is our top priority and so we have increased the gate opening hours to three hours before kick-off for the autumn international matches.
This will allow a capacity crowd to pass through the enhanced security checks safely and in plenty of time to enjoy the games and the renowned pre-match build up at Principality Stadium.
We strongly urge fans to assist us in maintaining a safe and secure stadium by getting in early and leaving large bags and large umbrellas at home to avoid unnecessary delays and disappointment.
