That's ace. Still baffled as to why France didn't get three home games

I'm baffled as to why they got 2 as they're not the hosts!

Neither are Ireland but they have a game in Ireland.

 

As regards to the French, they have a good record of large attendances at their home matches and i would think this will continue to be the case for these two games. Playing them at Leigh or even Headingley would not have drawn anywhere neart the crowds as they will draw in France. We will see what their other group game that is played in England attracts. I rather suspect it will be half the crowd the games in France attract.

 

It may not be strictly correct as they are not a host country but I think it will be a win win for the game both for the World Cup as whole in terms of spectators and for the game in France in particular.

Agreed: France / Ireland / Wales are never going to host a world cup in its entirety so having odd games there makes complete sense.

Let's hope they do. The two World Cups hosted by France led to Great Britain winnning the cup. Third time could be a charm.

Oh, yes - nearly forgot, those Cardiff hoteliers are scalping swines. I wont be telling 'er indoors how much my room at the Ibis came in at ;-)

 

You'd be in more trouble if she knew you'd bought two tickets. :rolleyes:  :D

 

well I've bought two today for Cardiff on the strength of finally knowing the kick off time, got the best placed Cat2 tickets and we're off towards the end so I guess most of those have sold out already in the East Stand. I guess, without press releases, we'll only get an idea how things are going once they start opening up currently unavailable sections at the various grounds.

50-60 seems a bit vague
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

The online thing is still allowing me to select bottom tier seats, and a big chunk have been greyed out since the beginning. Mind you top tier gives the best view by a mile

Still tickets available in both bottom tiers on the website. Also one side not opened at Cardiff yet.

Are they going to open Club Wembley for the semis or is it members only like the cup final?

Clearly BS, you can still buy up to 12 tickets together behind the sticks at Wembley.

Yep - we have heard this rumour a couple of times now, particularly the one about the lower tier at Wembley.

 

Two things - the organisers would be shouting from the rooftops if 33k tickets had been sold for Wembley.

Secondly - They haven't even opened the upper tier, so it is clearly not true!

Looks like you can buy tickets in the lower West Stand for the Opening Ceremony. The blocks are still coloured grey on the map but you can click and purchase.
