Bought for NZ v Samoa at Wire, and planning on Scotland v USA (Salford) and NZ v PNG (Headingley) and Wembley for the moment.

if I don't get the volunteers gig, then NZ PNG is on my list. See you there it's been a while!

Its a bu**er that none of the ko times are announced yet, so you can plan your travelling.

I'd love to do England v Ireland and Australia v Fiji on the same day, but don't know if its possible yet.

I agree. Its pointless buying the tickets if you don t know if you can make both games. I guess they are waiting for the TV schedules and broadcasters to be finalised before they know the kickoff times but it s not helping anyone s advanced planning.

So buy the one you definately want to watch, then the second when the times are announced?

indeed. would be nice to know ko times, but not crucial at this stage with over 12m to go.

I've got tickets for the Final and Semi-Finals. Will definitely be buying Cardiff, Neath and Bristol tickets soon and then perhaps Limerick, Wrexham, Northern games etc a little later. Also need to buy a new shirt and perhaps some other bits of merchandise pieces.

I'm generally positive about it - looking forward to helping drive ticket sales in Bristol through relentless PR spam to local papers, radio stations etc etc.

I don't know if you've thought of this but going into the

University Of Bristol,

University of the West of England,

University Of Bath and

Bath Spa University would be worth it.

At the end of each September each university have what is called 'Freshers Fayre' which is used to promote absolutely everything - various societies, companies, public services (the Police/Army) have stalls which as far as I know are free. All first year students and most other students visit these fayres and sign up for all sorts and buy all sorts and get given hundreds of thousands of leaflets!!

Co-ordinating a stall with the university Rugby League team at that particular university could be a great way of promoting the World Cup and even selling tickets. And generally with students it's much easier to get groups of 8+ as well because as soon as say 4 people say they're going than all their friends want to go as well!

On top of that universities have their newspapers which are often read by 10,000+ people. Just some food for thought.

What do you two guys with knowledge of the game in the Bristol area think the attendance will likely be for the USA v Cook Island fixture.? I would be happy with 5,000 given the non heartland area and the lesser teams involved in the fixture but that is just speculation on my part as I have no local knowledge.

Are there any US military bases anywhere near who could be targetted as a likely source of support ?

Am in the process of rounding up variosu groups of freinds to arrange trips, but looks like Cardiff, Old Trafford and Limerick for me; Cardiff is looking popular amongst my mates so should be a good group of us there. I might also take in Scotland Italy at Workington and a maybe one of the quarter finals but will decide nearer the time, too much travelling just gets a bit too hectic!
