I just got two stand tickets, didn't say anything about any R section.


Section R was the one and only option. What's to stop people forwarding this link onto non-season ticket holders and the tickets being all sold out before some genuine ST holders get to check their mail??


Nothing. The system currently in place to sell away tickets is a shambles. Can see issues with the Glaws allocation already.

I agree. I'm going to try and get them through Glaws itself, rather than Leinster. I've bought tickets from them before, so it shouldn't be a problem (she says, fingers crossed...)

That's the big issue. Until there is a ST verification system, this will remain a massive problem. Probably not for this game as not many will be travelling but it could be a disaster waiting to happen.

Meinster and other people have offered to write a verification program for free but I don't know if this is even being considered.

I got a couple of tickets for a Leinster supporter based in France - AppleSourz very kindly offered to carry them over - he took her mail cause she was checking out a good base in the city.

Tara & Claire - if you are around with Robbie you might keep an eye out for her - wouldn't want her to be intimated by the hostile Leinster crowd (edit - especially if SS is proposing nude calender photos) :lol:

I've got nothing against your right leg.

Doc, I don't get to Agen until very late on the Friday, so I am afraid your friend is at the mercy of those beer-glass throwing Leinster men until then. I will do my best to protect her from the rougher elements on the Saturday. ;)

And I'm afraid that I'm not going to Agen at all, so I won't be of any use at all. Sorry. :(

I have never thrown a beer glass in my life. :x. Although, I may have dropped one on occasion. :oops:

Now see I can't tell whether you are implying that I throw vodka and oj glasses, or whether you are suggesting that as a vodka and oj drinker I have less respect for pints of beer and am therefore more prone to dropping them. I guess it's also possible you're suggesting that an inability to handle my vodka and oj also leaves me in a state where literally handling a beer glass becomes too much of a challenge, but I'd like to think you're too much of a gent to suggest such a thing. ;)

The whole parsing of the sentence is a bit of a giveaway. Also the fact that you can write a whole paragraph analysing a single remark :wink:

BTW - it's two ladies I've discovered - God help them. And they'd be used to civilised life over there - none of this pint galsses stuff :D
