There is no criticism, implied or otherwise, in this link - merely for information regarding arrangements for official away support.

Well I suppose it's interesting to see how the other half lives. Myself I suspect a list of the best pubs and kebab shops would have been more useful.

One thing's for sure - there'll be at least twenty times more Leinster supporters in Newcastle than Saracens', with or without tickets!!
It augurs well for a great weekend as there'll be loads of French supporters there too - again probably more than Sarries'.
It's criminal that such a successful team has such a paltry number of supporters.
Wasn't it Sarries who a few years ago laid on buses and match tickets to get as many supporters as possible to a game at Tigers? I seem to remember the expression "rent a mob" being used?

I've just read that the finals of the Champions' Cup and Challenge cup will be held at Tottenham's new 62,000 capacity stadium in 2021!
Maybe Tigers will have got their act together by then - nah, wishful thinking!

Fantastic job by Leinster. That is how a top team promotes itself to its supporters, occasional visitors, the press and the public in general.

It all shows up quite how far Tigers have fallen, and how far from being a top team. It is not only performances on the field that define clubs, but also their branding, promotional material, digital design and presence, branding and marketing, ares in which Tigers lack of leadership and impact are self evident.

(Financial stability, sustainability and work in the community have to be a given too.)
