    ground-breaking Round 5 Heineken Cup Pool 4 match at Stade de Geneve,
    Switzerland, on Sunday 14 January, 2007 (kick-off 14.00 local time).

          Does anyone have the stats? Does Munster get more Sunday games than any other team in this tournament?

                Well I was so afraid it would be Friday that I am almost happy.

                I promise you a nice Saturday night in Lyon [img]smileys/biggrin.gif[/img]

                    Booked flights a few months ago. Banked on a Saturday game or at worst a Friday night game. Sunday game has put the kaibosh on the trip. Options go for a weekend anyway, we are flying into Marseilles and out of Nice. There are no other HEC games that weekend with an easy drive of Lyon/Marseilles. Toulon are away to Mont de Marsan that weekend as well.

                    Still though we are only out around 80 yo-yo's for the flights if we decide to cut our loses.

                        ERC are taking Munster fans for granted. this game will be luckyto get 10,000 people.

                          My dad abd a few of his buddies on the same boat. It's just plain unfair by the ERC, can't they use their heads?!

                            Looks like there are loads of us in the same boat. Out Friday morning and back Sunday morning, so 2 of the 3 days were covered. Looks like €400 down the drain. What the hell were ERC thinking, making it a Sunday game? Getting a little bit pissed off with delayed fixture announcements, etc. Attend all HC matches, home and away and this was the one away fixture each year that I make a weekend of it with my wife. (instead of the lads) Really disapointed. Back from Cardiff to Dublin this afternoon and then onto New York, but flying back again on Friday for the return match. I really believe that ERC are not taking into account that there are many Munster fans making huge efforts to support the team. Just look at Cardiff again on Saturday, to see how resourceful and supportive we can be. A saturday afternoon match in Geneva would have achieved the maximum crowd, but now...................

                              Am now considering this match. I take it a ticket won't be a problem.


                              Anyone staying in Geneva? I can fly there from Gatwick apparently.
