    The thing with MR, for me at least, is to let it wash over you. Stop trying to impose structure, and revel in the richness of the language line by line. Read aloud, and feel how the cadence and the...

    That's where you can get partners to take some of the strain though. Pubs, restaurants, hotels etc in the city all stand to do better if there are big match day crowds on a regular basis. Maybe they...

    Some of the comments here suggest that Leinster aren't selling the same product. The product, for me, is the whole match day experience. It seems that Leinster are quite explicitly selling an "event"...

    Not necessarily. You have a rental agreement, regardless of whether the tenant is, in your view, in breach of it. That's not to say your view isn't correct, but no one with the requisite authority...

    I've not been to a HEC final in Cardiff where tickets weren't relatively freely available outside the ground. Lots of people don't travel, and lots of people find they can't get accommodation.
