FRIDAY (Rugby Day)
Today is the day the tickets for the RWC go back on sale.
With high hopes I logged on to the RWC website and crossed my fingers that some half decent tickets still remained. Five minutes later I had 2 tickets for the Canada-Ireland game and 2 more for the day after in Cardiff when the home nation Wales takes on Uruguay.My sights were set on tickets for the England – Wales game at Twickenham a week later I was crushed to learn there was nothing left. While not taking no for an answer I searched Stub hub and Craigslist for a couple of tickets (any tickets) to get in to the hallowed ground that is referred to by the England Rugby faithful as “HQ”.
Shock and awe are two words that describe what I found as I sadly surfed on. Sure I can get tickets but I am going to have to part with one thousand British Pounds. That’s not happening, so maybe on the day there may be a scalper that will take pity on us. Time will tell.
