    What I took from that was those who arrive with cash have to go to the desk to pick up a voucher, but those who have contactless cards just go to the bar.

    Obviously going to two counters will take longer than only going to one.

    Cardiff seem to be saying that in general, card payments are quicker than cash.

    (I note that the old codgers in the Members' Bar may still pay cash.)

      Unwilling to die on that, or any other, hill.

        Cardiff seem to be saying that in general, card payments are quicker than cash. For values where you can go contactless (most), they are correct.

            Yeah it was a disaster. And all for non alcoholic beer

              To be fair, for those of us with access to it, leap cards are faster than cash on bus. Mainly because nobody ever has their cash ready. But I'm not a fan of this drive towards cashless as it seems mainly a way to replace cashiers with computers and remove the pesky expense of employees from business.

                Indeed, back in the day, CIE were mad to bring in the One Man Bus (sic), to get rid of an employee, forgetting ( or ignoring) that having the Driver take the money would, and does, delay the Bus and all the traffic behind it.

                  Tommy Bowe, Luke Fitzgerald, Donncha O'Callaghan, Maz Reilly and Murray Kinsella announced as the pundits for Eir Sport's coverage for the upcoming season.

                    Will be very interesting to see how Kinsella goes- he’s the standout rugby ‘print’ journalist for me.

                      Does a lot of videos for the 42, lions tour, Australia tour etc, very good analysis & doesn't seem to have favourites which is fairly unique.

                        Being at ease live on TV is a bit different to the very studious analysis of his I admire greatly- but I really hope it works out, one less seat for a wooden explayer boosting his mates and providing zero additional insight would be a good start to the season.

                          Wasn't he on TV recently enough? For the Australian tour on TV3?

                            Sorry- not in TV3 broadcast area- what was he like?

                              Fla spent some time ROG and Felix with Dutchy during the Off-season according to the 42

                              Jerry Flannery linked up with Ronan O’Gara at the Crusaders and Felix Jones spent time with the Hurricanes.

                                Pity Fla didn't go and spend his time with John Plumptree. Very good coach imo.
