it is often remarked upon in media that a large number of people at HQ are more interested in making trips to that bar then watching the match
Yes plastic fans for the most part. Hoorah Henry's.

Quite a few people down the tigers on Friday night were more interested in the beer than watching the rugby . Don’t wanna be a kill joy . But a bloke in the row in front was up and down like a fiddlers elbow Back and forward to the bar . Slopping it everywhere and moaning about the service. Maybe it’s just me but at 40 quid a ticket I wanna get my moneys worth and watch my team . I know it’s inevitable at any arena type situation but it does grind my gears

Totally agree. I think they should close the bars during the game. Open at half time and full time

It's not hard to make a 2 pint pot last you a half of rugby!

It was appalling had exactly the same experience in the North stand we were up and down all match giving way to those that prefer foraging for and drinking beer to watching the match. This means we cannot watch the match due to the ergonomics of the seating whilst they transit. It now happens at every match but Friday was worse than ever.

Its not hard but it's demonstrably impossible for some.

I always get a pint midway through the first half, and always will, no matter what game I'm at. Might as well watch it at home if you start to remove all the match day experiences.

Do you purchase a seat at the end of the row so you can get out without disturbing others? I would consider having “quiet” areas where people actually watched the game. I stand on the terrace at the back so usually have no problem but when I do go to other games I try to be on the end more for leg room and a loo break so no one has to move if my bladder needs to :smt043

Absolutely, or as close to the end as possible. I think for a lot of people, it is the extra things like being able to go to the bar, banter with the opposite fans, etc that is the appeal over sitting at home (which is normally much clearer and better to understand with the commentary and ref mike, etc).

It's such a stop-start game that standing up to allow others to get a drink also has no bearing on my enjoyment of a match either.

Wales suffer more injury issues as Ken Owens is ruled out of the Autumn Series:

Seemingly heading rapidly toward senility .....Not long or far to go now , in fact, getting worse daily.....

Sapajo. Am I to believe by your dictionary/Wikipedia description you had to go and find out what Lurgi (Lurgy) is.
LOL
