Coventry crowd

Post by Mark62 » Sat Apr 20, 2019 3:14 pm

I know it’s Easter weekend it’s on telly and a neutral venue, but the crowd at The Ricoh looks really disappointing considering it’s a European semi final. Munster seem to be out number Saracens too

It’s an hour and forty by car from the Allianz to the Ricoh. Euston is pretty much closed this weekend I believe.

Poor by the ERC and not a good advert for the game.

I'm sure they would have prefered to use the London Stadium but West Ham are playing there today Vs Leicester City

Saved me posting this! Around 8k there?
I think it says more about how poor the Saracens 'base' is. If Tigers were there it would be rammed.

Difficult in Ireland short of them taking it to Belfast, which is in effect a different country not sure else where they can play it

The Ricoh looks empty. What has happened to the Saracens support? Did their car breakdown I wonder?

It feels empty even when it's full, completely soulless
