    Hopefully we get above 50 anyway

      Think there's a bit of leg pulling going on....at the rate that tickets have sold we know where they're going...Gloucester folk don't wake up until the week of a match and there'll be 'anyone got a spare...blah blah'!

      This is more like what we really think on years gone by...

        Looking forward to the trip over. Was there a few years ago and the locals were extremely sound, a very welcoming bunch. Shed will be rocking.

          The last time I was at Kingsholm was in 2002 for the reverse fixture of the miracle match. 2 of us going again & massively looking forward to it.

            I think we will find that Gloucester are a bit disinterested by the time the game comes around, every Gloucester supporter I have spoken to is of the opinion that the overwhelming priority this season is the league and a top four finish.

              I think a lot will depend on their double header against Exeter. They probably didn't expect to have any real chance of qualifying before the tournament started, but with the way Exeter have started they now have a chance. If they can come through December still in with a shout, all of a sudden with a quarter final spot up for grabs and opinions could well change.

                Folks,

                I'm flying into LHR and want to get to Gloucester by train. Am I right in thinking bus to Reading, then train is best?

                Thanks.

                  Depends maybe which terminal but fast train to Paddington, and direct to gloucerster (2.5-3 hrs max) would be more reliable and probably quicker. Google maps, for example, suggests that route.

                    They are playing well but a dog fight with Exeter might not play to their strengths.

                      Exeter only just scraped past Bristol at the weekend- but they did- and they keep winning close games (except for one very close to our hearts). Those games could be a decent watch- two low scoring draws would do us nicely, as well a demoralisingly large victory over Castre in Limerick!

                        JP Doyle at home and Barnes away is always a concern. Hopefully POM and CJ have finally cracked the latter’s breakdown interpretations. For my blood pressure I wish someone would tell Barnes to stop calling players “mate”. Jebus it grinds my gears. But a BP win against Castres, which should be Munster’s ambition/ expectation should kill off their interest for the return fixture.

                          Castres will always up their game at home. I just hope that we don't take the first leg for granted

                              Faster maybe (not sure on that) but the fast train to Paddington is extortionate. Time permitting, personally I'd save a few quid and get the bus to Reading. Or as an alternative hire a car for a few days.

                                Sorry, my post wasn’t clear. I think the BP win in Limerick should be the ambition. A 5-0 win would kill off Castres’ interest, imho.
