Given the forum's evangelism for the International game, I thought I'd seek information.

Anyone going?

Tickets on the gate?

Car parking?

I'd Rather See Dave Lee Travis Play Macbeth.

two birds with one stone

I hope one of them is a robin.

                     The 2016 Rugby Union Six Nations - the safer and                                                    more reliable alternative to sleeping pills.

 

                  (Hull FC are somewhere near top of the Super league, btw..)

International discussion, or for Hull fan to obsess with Rovers.

Get yourself to Craven Park next Saturday and support international rugby.

Tickets arrived in the post this morning. We'll be there.

Wear a thick coat, it'll make Wrexham today seem like Catalans away in June in comparison. Plenty of on street parking and I'm looking forward to being in the big terrace down the side, rather than in the tosh terrace about two miles away behind the sticks.

Expecting England to build on today's performance.

It will be interesting to see how France go about this game. Do they throw everything at England hoping to give them a shock? Or will they be affected knowing they are playing them again the week after?

I expect they will treat it like England did the Wales one, focus on the systems and processes they want to employ, rather than worry about the result or opposition. This match is ideal preparation for both sides going in to the final. They don't get many chances to play together as a team and this is one where they can practice in 'real time' without worrying too much about the result.

Not sure on how this game will sell considering the teams play one and other in Salford the following week.

Anyways, I have been loving this Autumn International Series so far with some really good rugby being played so I hope it is continued next Saturday.

Who in their right mind would choose to stand at the south end of the ground over the East Stand?

I'm going with a load of my mates. We'll be in the east stand getting jovially tanked up. Don't worry, we're not hoodlums, we're celebrating my turning 25. I accept congratulations in the form of pints and burgers so if anyone is coming we'll be on the half way line haha!!

Seeing as most Rugby League supporters seem to find it a hardship to get from the car to the kerb there shouldn't be too much of an overlap between east and west.

Due to a change in a family get-together, I can make it to this game. It looks like the east stand is the place to be. I will be travelling by train and bus, so I can have a pint or two, and will probably wear my Salford shirt, sad old git that I am!

Don't be so bloody soft. It was just a bit of humour. If my posts were as bitter as yours often are then you'd have summat to moan about.

As for the game, I'm thinking about meeting up with Tonyxiii and Mick Gledhill and may even get HKR away days a beer.
