I'm already going to be in Dublin so is there any way to buy tickets through ye so we can still all be together like the big happy family we are?  :D


As far as I'm aware, the tickets for eithjer end of the pitch are "open seating"
If we agreed on an end that we'd all get tickets for, then people not travelling from Connacht, could book them on Ticketmaster.

Just throwing it out there, North Stand?

just say the branch is running a bus for 45e which include a 30e ticket. Bit steep. Cant make this as ill be in cork. 30e works out at 3games with the season ticket. We got great value and prob the best in the league

There are 40 more rugby minutes left, but Leinster are currently losing 0-7 to Aironi at home.

We should have nothing to fear from this team next week. We should be targetting the win.

Definitely agree we should be going for the win, but even a 3rd string Leinster should not be under estimated.They turned it round very nicely against Aironi in 2nd half, picking up a BP in the process.

We're averaging about 15 points per game at the moment and that is not enough points to win against the better sides, especially away from home. We need to be more clinical with our points harvesting...

we need a performance like the Ospreys but more clinical within 5 metres could be the difference!!

Better for us I feel that Leinster won tonight.

2 home losses in a row against so called lightweights just wouldn't be let happen

If we had George back I'd give us a serious chance. Wishful thinking I suppose, but a back row of Mul, Concrete and Naoupu should have way too much dog, breadown nous, and in George, carrying ability for the likes of Auva'a, and the Ruddock brothers.

Leinster still have some serious talent even with the number of players they have at the world cup and crucially have a good core of the team who have loads of experience and who are well used to playing at a higher level. Still we should be looking to give this a right go.

Looking at the results elsewhere this weekend confirms the argument that now is the time to pick up points against the stronger sides. i.e. Glasgow away to Leinster and Cardiff(with 4 try bp), Edinburgh v Munster etc.

Very congested table it'd be nice to put ourselves firmly in the top half going into the 2 week break.

The prices are a pretty fair reflection of the costs of going to the game. It's a bus each way on a toll road, and entry to the match. Prices would also be dependent on the numbers going. I'll try and get back to ye with an area for tickets.

Hopefully there will be a stream available online for those of us a little further away than Ireland.

These are usually the best bet for a feed...

Hey yep... just to confirm.

45 euros is getting you from Buskers in the morning to the game (leaving at 12:30, be there at 12).
We'll pop in somewhere for a pint and lunch.
Go to the Lineout bar (official Leinster supporters bar)
Into the match in the Connacht Clan block (€30 for a ticket)
Return trip back to Galway city center.
Sandwiches in Buskers after.

So basically 45 euro for a bus up, a bus down, sandwiches after and the match ticket... which costs us €30.
