I read that Hertz Van Rental are on board as the latest partners. Sounds decent.

Personally I thought he was a Dutch footballer...

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

That mascot thing was at the WCC on Friday night. Looked liked it had drunk 20 pints and then been dragged through a hedge backwards. Kids might like it though.

I want to buy tickets for the opening games at Cardiff but I need to know the kick off times.

When will they be announced?

id guess it'll be something like 5:30pm wales v italy & 7:45pm england v wales....give or take half a hour...gives the broadcasters time to clear all the football out the way first..

Still, at least England RU had the decency to leave the opening weekend and trample all over England's two other group games instead.

Exactly, funny how their two international tournaments start on our opening SL weekend and World Cup.

There is also the opening ceremony to take into account, depending on what the plans for that are. I will certainly make sure I get there early enough to see it.

I would be suprised if the games were evening kos in Cardiff, which would make it very difficult for the bulk of supporters who , lets be honest, are going to be from the North, to get to the games. I suspect we're looking at the opening games and ceremony being on the Beeb with the games kicking off at something like 2.30 and 4.30, and the final on Sky with an early evening ko.

Really should know ko times soon. Getting the train back from cardiff might be an issue if evening ko. I am guessing tv schedule will dictate

Whilst not massive, these pre-sales still put Ireland on track for one of their biggest international crowds.

I think you will be surprised on the crowd and the supporters from the City, I think the England V Australia will be the first game
