Paul, Not tempted by the package tours that are on offer, two nights hotel in London plus tickets to the final, yours for a bargain £1,400 per person! http://www.telegraph...s-and-pubs.html
Clicked on one of the links provided by the official tour provider, which gives you a three night stay in Newcastle plus tickets to two games at St James Park all for a quid short of a grand. I am sure that none of the Rugby fans who will be in Newcastle for the Magic Weekend will spend even half of that amount, even if they do stay over. Union fans you are being ripped off, so visit Newcastle in May not October; you will enjoy the experience far more and your bank balance will be in a far healthier state.
