Well the family stand should allow away families in (you know like most clubs).


Really where do they do that? I spent the last few years in our family block and I most certainly wouldn't have if there were away fans welcome; surely that is just asking for non-family friendly language and behaviour?


Why would there be non-family friendly language/behaviour? You only allow young families in, just because they're away fans doesn't mean they'' misbehave in front of their kids.

Surely bad language / behaviour becomes more likely if you mix the two sets of supporters? You're putting an awful lot of faith in parents not wishing to swear in front of their children - which I can say I hear a lot of just in normal society, public transport, etc. Add to that the pressure of a football match, and the close proximity of rival fans (potentially sat next to you), and I'd be amazed if it passed off as pleasantly as you suggest with no non-family appropriate incidents.


Limit it to ABC1s then. We do need to continue the good work of gentrification of football.

so God knows what they charge for Six Nations Games.

Had lunch with some friends yesterday who are going to England v Wales. It's £100 a pop, or thereabouts.

Also at the lunch was a Scot who saw Scotland v Italy (I think) at Murrayfield for £60-odd quid, and saw the same fixture repeated, at the same ground, 9 months later as part of a World Cup and it was £150. The details are a bit vague (I wasn't paying attention) but you get the point. Massively expensive, reflecting it's largely middle-class market. Same as when I go to Lords for test cricket.

England games at Twickenham always sell out, very difficult to get a ticket.

At least with Test Cricket you get a whole day of banter and drinking - and occasionally sublime cricket ;)

Guessed it would be around the three figures if it was £62 for Sale. You're right about the middle-class factor, one of the reasons I guess that there's less uproar about the prices compared to football.

That's why Rubgy League was invented. It is Rugby for the common man!
