Away to Saints

Post by johnthegriff » Tue Mar 21, 2017 4:59 pm

I have been advised to expect traffic delays as our match coincides with Northampton Town v Oxford so parking limitations and delays expected road works don't help the situation. Our coach still which leaves at 11.30 am still has spaces. I only purchased my match ticket today so the game is not yet a sell out, very unusual for this derby match.

I don't know how they ever get a sell out with the ridiculous prices. £45 on the terrace?? £50 to be seated in the back corner??

I've paid less at HQ!

Presumably those prices are not just for away fans?!

But I agree the prices are crazy, I will watch this one on the box....

It's precisely ticket prices that are causing it not to sell out. £45 to stand is absurd. Much as I'd love to be there I've decided I can't justify it.

Too late for that.

My Stains-in-laws think the prices are ludicrous too, and so do several of their mates. The theory is it is partly to do with the influx of monied people, as happened with Chiefs.

If Tigers can beat Saints - and it's a big IF, it will put them in good stead for the Bath match at Twickers, and if they win that they could make 4th position.
I hope Croft will be in the starting XV to secure attacking back of the line-out ball and hopefully pinch some Saints line-outs.
A win would also send Mauger off in the best way possible.

That'll have put the icing on the cake of a successful season then wont it, since the team is in transition and all that.
