To accommodate BBC Wales Cardiff v Harlequins has been switched from
Saturday to Sunday.
Myself and 4 friends had already booked train and match tickets for
Saturday, but can't make it on Sunday.
Yet again the average fan isn't considered.

Go and see Neath play Northampton instead.  See you at the
Gnoll.

I've just sent an e-mail to the BBC asking for them to reimburse 245 for
the loss of train fare and match tickets.
I wonder how polite they will be when they tell me to f**k off.

I might well do that. Good luck to the anyway, it might do Cardiff a favour
if they win.

Bad luck ...why did they switch the match though , I know you say for BBC
Wales , but why specifically?

Due to results everywhere else the cardiff game became important as they can
now qualify, hence it was switched for tv coverage.  It is tough on people
who already bought tickets etc

Ouch! That hurts. I would kick up a hell of a row about this with the
tournament organisers and the BBC (particularly the BBC, in fact
because they've got more money).

Personally, I'm glad the game is going to be on the box because I
can't make it Saturday *or* Sunday so at least I get to see it.

But I have a lot of sympathy for you and your mates. Lets just hope
Cardiff can do the business and give you something to smile about at
the end of the game ;-)
Cheers,
Mike Brownhill

I think the "average fan" is the armchair supporter who will watch the game
on the box and be quite grateful to the BBC for livening up his post sunday
lunch snooze.

Those "supporters" who are making the trip are unfortunatly in the minority
and mostly treated like shit. Twenty fiucking quid for a stand ticket! The
supporters club have only booked six coaches, sold out in minutes, so BR
will gain 32 as well.

I'm all in favour of a british league being set up, the rugby will be much
better, but the cost implications aren't so pleasant.

Just hope I'm moaning about the cost of a trip to Northampton or somewhere
come Sunday Night.
