It's basically a stag/hens dump. In fairness we went there the first time we went to Edinburgh, the trick is never to go back.

Anyway we'll be there supporting Clermont ahead of the wretched Sarries and wearing one of the many Clermont scarfs I've gathered over the years. There's a quite big green area just before Murrayfield so the picnic people will have plenty of good spots. Any idea of where the Supporter's village is?

Final thought is DON'T go into the stadium early, memories from 2009 of disastrously poor food and drink service.

Oh and the Murrayfield Bar is now a rip-off shitehole and the Roseburn bar just down the street is far more of a quality boozer.

Roseburn bar it is so !.

I was in Murrayfield for the Pro12 final last year and the food and drink service hasn't improved since 2009. The queues were so bad I didn't even bother trying to get a drink as I would have easily missed 10 minutes of the game.

Was at the Ireland game this year... Went early. It seemed a lot better this year

(Can't be confident about my level of awareness)

I like your right leg. A lovely leg for the role.
I've got nothing against your right leg.
The trouble is ... neither have you

Really? We were there for ages after the match on Saturday, shame we didn't bump into you and the gang.

The small back lounge had it's own bar so we weren't subjected to the notoriously slow service we experienced elsewhere.
