It's like the bad old days - haven't heard or read a single word about tomorrow's match in the mainstream media. :(

On the upside, the BBC will not only be showing the match live, but have scheduled a 1-hour highlights package on Sunday.

It is very frustrating, but I wonder whether we need to focus on non-traditional media, as quite clearly we won't get much coverage in newspapers.

It would be interesting to see the amount of mentions etc. on Twitter. Facebook, Online sites etc. We have also had coverage on BBC this morning.

a shocking turn out must be all of 3000 :blink:

I look around
I search the skies
I shade my eyes
So nearly blind
And I see signs of half remembered days
I hear bells that chime in strange familiar ways
I recognise...
The hope you kindle in your eyes

When Wales don't make lots of errors, they look decent.

Really? They look well-coached and are clearly playing their hearts out, but barely a handful are of the required quality, sadly.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I didn't say world beaters mate. Plenty of heart but clearly outclassed.

Just had a look on the French forum and saw some feedback from the French Federation on how they perceived the Lens game.


Like all observers-Bollaert Stadium Saturday Deleris Philippe Dallongeville, the Executive Director of the FFR XIII, appreciated the behavior of the Blues, and the impact on the public and business partners of the event. Explanations ...
What is your assessment of the organization of the match France - Wales Lens?
"In sporting terms, with the victory, media-with the perspective on the event, and economically, this" first "in the north we fully satisfied."
You expect to attract nearly 12,000 fans at Stade Felix Bollaert?
"In any case we had hoped, with President Nicolas Larrat and members of the organizing committee.
Colleagues could not have formed their efforts, without the outstanding support of local professinal team RC Lens, . A big thank you to the volunteers of the league Ile de France who worked effectively, led by its President, Regis Osmont. And it is important to note that the gate receipts was much higher than that recorded last year in Perpignan France - Scotland. "
How many potential partners have made the trip to Lens with Jacques, President of the Club Thirteen of France?
"A promising start, with six officers or representatives of companies who took the train with us the morning of the match, in orser to discover the values ​​of our sport.All were delighted by what they saw, including the quality of the game and the dynamism of our players. Note the presence of a former leader of Coverland, who knew our sport to have been the main partner of Limoux XIII, the time when the late Hervé Guiraud's presidency. lot of fond memories, about our friend, were discussed with him. Laurent Also with Moreno, the current President of the club Limoux and Zalduendo Carlos, who had made the trip to Lens. "
The media impact has there been important?
"The local newspapers have extensively covered the event, the regional daily press usual also, Midol, and the newspaper L'Equipe. And many people who enjoyed the report television France 3 North. Course, I don't forget the quality Bein Sport live transmission. "

On the Wire site it states to use the following code War241 when booking tickets, so I assume this is a pretty public offer.

The discount was originally for Rovers pass holders to begin with I think. I was unaware of the promo code as the club, from what I can tell, didn't advertise it themselves. 2 tickets for £12 is awesome value; I'm dragging my brother along.
