Shouldn’t be a problem finding someone for it, that’s by far the most atmospheric part of the ground !.

Yep. Tickets were sent in a pdf.

To be fair the mess was Exeter's which Leinster fixed within 24hrs.

The got lost in the post one baffled me, would Exeter not courier hundreds of tickets?

Must say buying tickets online directly from them is an absolute pleasure, was able to print it off months ago must see if it’s still under the pillow ?, can’t wait for this one !.

Will be in Exeter for the match! First I'm going to explore the delights of Torquay on Saturday night (I booked late so accommodation prices in Exeter were crazy, so took a cheaper option).

I have it on good authority that (in my mid-forties) I will be the handsome young buck of the town.

Lock up your grannies!!!!

You missed out on this one!

Gleneagles Hotel, Torquay.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gleneagles_Hotel,_Torquay.

Still if you're on a Grab a Granny night you may still end up there.

In February 2015 the hotel closed. It will be replaced with retirement apartments.

For anyone arriving in on Sunday morning and expecting to get the train to Exeter from Bristol
Be warned that there is a weekend train strike
Not all trains are cancelled but plenty are
Our train was cancelled
We had to get a replacement bus to Taunton and then train to Exeter
Our arrival time should have been 1.45 and we eventually arrived at 3.30
No crisis today but tomorrow pre match would have been stressful

When I booked my train the other day, the replacement bus was already factored into the journey. Hopefully, others will be in that position too.

That’s good at least
I booked the train a few weeks ago and got no email with any update about the strike
At Temple Meads no one seemed to have a clue what was going on

Stuck in Oxford, can't get a train, bus or even a cab! Very frustrating.

No. :-(

I had nopeare's ticket, so the ticket screw up turned out to be handy, cos I could email the PDFs.

Manchester derby and snow combined to make it very difficult to even find somewhere to watch it.

Looked like there was a decent Leinster crew there. I hope those who made it had a ball.

Great result, hard fought.
