Roll call Marseille

Postby scrum25 » April 11th, 2015, 1:03 pm

4 of us making day trip but How many others are travelling to marseille? There was a reference in paper to Leinster having sold 500 tickets during the week. I cant believe it is that low - there were more in Castres in November.

The fact that it is on a Sunday has probably limited the travelling group but am surprised the aer lingus and ryanair flights not sold out given they are competitively priced.

Has the small number travelling more to do with low expectations based on our current form.

Here's hoping for a Stoop type performance but it is is a very slim hope!

Just for information: the train line between Nice and Marseille is a normal speed line. Don't spoil your money on a TGV ticket if it's more expensive than a normal train. :)
I'm french. Please correct my english mistakes !

yes indeed, the problem is more about easyjet in Marseille than Ryanair in Nice.
