Sarries away it is then....

Post by againstthehead » Sun Jan 20, 2013 3:39 pm

Doh, thought we were just gonna sneak that home quarter then with 10 to go but fair play to Sarries to bag the TBP in those conditions.

Just had a look at Sarries fixtures. They're currently due to play Wasps away the Sunday before HEC quarter final weekend. We play leinster but we can pick and choose who to play. Could be a massive advantage to us. A friday night draw would be nice ;)

Not a bad draw IMHO.

The best we could hope for, as long as Leicester don't touch their toes this afternoon.

You can understand why the French and the English are annoyed Glasgow and Edinburgh get into the HEC automatically. They bring zero to the table

The question is where would it be played - Twickers? Unlikely for a 1/4 perhaps? Wembley has something on that weekend as has Vickerage Road.

I really think this thread should be deleted, a bit like saying "Joel Tomkins is on - were sunk!"

Or at least hidden till this evening :)

Feck knows where they'll move it to. Gonna be a ballex to book flights. Pricing flights to Gatwick but a if they move it to MK, which is a strong possiblity, then Gatwick is a bit out of the way.

When is quarter final weekend? Do our allocation of tickets go on sale to ST holders first just through the UR website or can ticketmaster do it too? They seem to be selling tickets for football and rugby a lot more

Johnstone Paint trophy (wtf is that?) is on at wembley on the 7 th from what I see.

Sarries got 41000 against leicester earlier in the year, only got 16000 at mk against northampton. Given the way the owners mentality is I suspect they might try to get to Wembley but gods knows. I think its fair to say it wont be Vickerge Rd.
