Having a successful carpet uber corporation leads to such privileges 7.5, that and having the pashun that some Welsh fans have mean that they suffer the most

I can but dream. For the majority even in Wales I'm sure Friday night tv gets better when there's a good match on...yes I'm too old for going out in the town.

Football fans don't complain about fixtures like rugby fans do. Football fans regularly have 2 matches a week, 40 odd games per season. European matches on a Tues/ Wed/ Thurs night, and you can still see hundreds if not thousands in eastern Europe or somewhere singing away. Amazing they can do it but ask a rugby fan to attend Friday night games at home and they moan something rotten. At the most happening 2 or 3 times a year.

Traffic becomes an issue. Hotels become an issue. Taken advantage of because such passionate fans. Blah blah.

The morally superior line that some rugby fans take is embarrassing at times.

Problem for rugby fans is that they tend to have proper jobs so midweek becomes harder.

Proper jobs? Not one that needs to know that Friday evening isn't mid week Rolling Eyes

He mentions midweek. Keep up. Friday evening still requires an early finish for a lot of people.

So what you are saying is you are just being condescending towards football fans?

Write a strongly worded letter to the SRU.

It's pretty pointless Griff. It would be utterly ignored.

I have sent strongly worded letters to the SRU with regards of how they sell their international tickets.

For those who don't know, it's almost impossible to get tickets for individual matches these days and they almost always have to be bought in the season pass format. Basically you pay a big whack of money but you have a "season ticket" for all of the Scotland matches.

It's absolutely useless when, for arguments sake I want to attend a Scotland vs Wales game with my dad. I can't buy 2 tickets seated together without buying a season pass. Let's just presume for one minute that the Mrs would let me go to 6 international rugby matches a year Wink I'm good with that. However what do I do with the other tickets for the other 5 matches that my dad being Welsh has no interest in? I'm either left with trying to flog them online, or dish them out to friends and family without puting other friends and family's noses out of joint by not picking or asking them.

I'm facing the same problem with year with quite a few English boys at my work fancying going over to Murrayfield as a group, it's almost impossible to get 6 tickets seated together for one match, without buying a bloody season pass!

Anyway I apologise for going off topic but felt I had to vent a bit.

That sounds a rubbish way of doing things, Radge. In Wales it used to be very difficult to get them unless you were affiliated to a rugby club. They'd all be allocated to the clubs and divided out amongst members. So it was difficult to grow the game to new people in a way. But what also happened was those club folk (players, chairmen, coaches, blazers) would often sell on the big games for a big profit either to touts or to friends and family, etc. I think the clubs still get an allocation, and it's policed a bit more somehow, but there's a lot more available to the general public outside of clubs now. Schools get a better allocation. At one stage you could buy them at Tesco ( Shocked ), but I think that's stopped now! But then I guess it's opened up the whole new can of worms and criticism of the 'Pink Cowboy hat brigade' (usually from whingey old timer club stalwarts) because people who are not 'real rugby fans' (how ridiculous) are 'allowed' to buy tickets. (I have no issue with this btw Wink ).

I've always struggled to get tickets for the Wales vs Scotland games for this very reason. Buying on the WRU website is very difficult and I had to register for tickets in the vain attempt to hoover up the scraps. It's not ideal for travelling fans that are unaffiliated with the Scottish Rugby Supporters club.

I am sure that each rugby club has to return their allocation if they are not sold, and these tickets go on general sale.

I do not know if this has changed, I will ask a few of the committee men at my club this weekend, I wonder how they will answer ? Just for the devilment I will start a debate about it with them though.Laugh

It's a similar system in England, our clubs get allocations for home games, but a lot of tickets are reserved for club sponsors if they want them.

I know there is a way to apply for tickets to England away games through my rugby club, but not 100% sure how it works and don't think there is a set allocation for each club, probably some kind of ballot if it is over-subscribed.

Never had to use it because going to Twickenham is expensive enough, without adding flights and a hotel to go to an away game!

Anyone know what the process is for getting tickets for the Rome games? Not a member of a club or anything for allocations, though a few friends of friends may be able to help if need be. Is there any open sale or do the Italians dish them out to the unions?

Looking very seriously at it for 2018...
