Surprised at the poor sales for this one - Baa Baas played some outstanding rugby last week against the Boks. A team of mostly young guys as opposed to the normal end of career picks of last few seasons. Worth the ticket price just to get a look at Nemani Nadolo playing for Fiji - the guy is some player.

Maybe if UR stopped pushing product and understood why people go to see these games instead

Anyhow UR have done a good job of last minute promotion (sorry free handouts to anyone) and the crowd has almost doubled in size in the last week. Not quite sold out but at least a respectable 15,000 plus.
Free handouts probably will have a low turnout so I don't see anywhere near 15k tickets distributed, checked yesterday and most of family stand available, memorial showing sold out, when it was barely half sold a few days ago, 2 sections at each end almost empty plus the centre section above the committee box and about a third of the premium stand.
At the time of the Munster match there were just over 5k tickets gone, note I didn't say sold.

15,000 projection… but then a sell out isn't a sell out anymore..

ps.. I note that the baabaas line up to the national anthem of the host nation as confirmed last week at Twickenham against the Boks.. Ahh it wouldn't be Belfast without a good anthem debate do you think anyone at Spanners knows the anthem of the host nation this evening?

The BaaBaas Anthem is GSTQ as the BaaBaas are apparently a British Team

They will probably play the Fiji anthem only...and of course the Fijians will be performing their "haka" called the Cibi.

If Q chubes are involved they will probably get it all wrong, and forget to turn off the pa for 2 mins silence, then again they might forget that as well.

Aquinas carpark not open tonight either but at least I see the park and ride is running even though neither are practical to get to from my direction

Are both park and ride car parks not very close to each other?

Would they never think of having one around Yorkgate, Blacks Rd etc?

Far too sensible Damian, one out around Shaws Bridge would be handy. Or a bus link to the train stations but N'orn Irn does not do public transport well at all, and I'm not even thinking about free transport.

In week three of my current migrain episode, my head is banging today and I have decided not to go. Accordingly anyone who wants it is welcome to my ticket in the memorial stand free of charge, though if you wanted to put a couple of quid in a poppy collection box I'd be happy. Right behind the posts, PM if you want it
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

Not playing GSTQ is a tad disrespectful
