Just about to book a trip to Paris in October for the Racing 92 match. Does any know if the venue is definately 'Stadium Yves Manoir' as I know they are due to move to the new U-Arena in October?

All booked for Castres - flying into Toulouse from Birmingham and then hiring car. Had to book 3 nights to cover all match times. Hotel 200 yards from Irish Bar :-)

Wormus your words I know where spoken in jest and at the moment I'm struggling to find the money for my season ticket for the Try Line club so I might have to follow your suggestion. Well at least a spot in the Mattioli Woods Stand so I can be near my mates, but there are still 10 days to go.

That sounds like a good plan, close to the Try Line Club as possible, the main point is that you are going to be there for what looks to be a great season. Keep well & fit and that goes for the team too.. :smt023

wallah
ˈwɒlə/Submit
nounINDIANinformal
plural noun: wallahs
a person concerned or involved with a specified thing or business.
"a rickshaw-wallah"
a native or inhabitant of a specified place.
"Bombay wallahs" Well Noddy was in the Travel Business during the Empire so the historic posts say.. :smt051 Perhaps the Ticket Office has been outsourced to India for those in the Try Line Club!

Who remembers the BBC's "It ain't half hot, Mum" with the Punkah wallahs?

Back to the thread! I've just bought flights from Carcassonne/EastMids to be at the Castres match at Welford Road on October 21st. I now need to speak with one of Noddy's ticket wallahs!
And of course, I'll be at the away match in Castres!

Its normally 'soon' after the previous round of matches in December so the TV companies can maximise their audience by highlighting the matches which have most appeal (usually those on which qualification of 'big' teams depends).

Im just hoping our game at Castres is 13.00 Sunday at the worse. I wouldn't go if it was the late Sunday game but ideally would want a 17.30 Saturday!

Just bought tickets for the Racing 92 game in Paris. Tickets are now available on their website if anyone doesn't want to wait for the Tigers away allocation to go on sale.

After the first two Premiership matches, Castres, Racing and Munster must be rubbing their hands together in eager anticipation of doing the double over Tigers!!!

Has anyone got any suggestions on a cost effective route (swimming has already been ruled out) for getting to from East Mids to the European Champions Final in Bilbao?

PS: I know its unlikely that we'll be in the final.
