Do you folks like Sunday games. Our game furthest to travel by far is now on a Sunday. Not on TV. Who's choice. Likely to be very few Chiefs fans able to make it back on a Sunday in time for work Monday

Every game except Sale is a long haul for us.

We have a mix of mainly Friday & Sunday games. Fridays are a belting atmosphere & leave the weekend free, but it is difficult for families to make Friday nights, especially if younger children have been at school all week. Sundays allow more families to attend games, and very importantly also allow junior rugby teams to take part & get involved, games during the afternoon & at half time.

I am more used to visiting supporters complaining about it being difficult to make Friday night games as they cannot lose all of Friday. I don't see how this is different to losing a Monday, and those who fly home usually comment on how easy it is to have a few pints with the game, take a couple of Metro stops to the Airport, and be back in time for supper.

Everyone to their own I suppose.

I remember a London Irish supporter complaining when Exeter were promoted, that it was a long way to travel to a game. I pointed out that it is about the same distance as our closest game, which as mentioned above is Sale. Both about 150 miles.

I prefer Fridays - a win is a great start to the weekend

It's a tricky one for families especially if the kids play junior or mini rugby on a Sunday morning you could argue Fridays are better as kids can possibly lie in Saturday although mine can't as have footie and dancing ha.

Sunday was probably alot better for folk back in the day before it pretty much became just another weekday for many people.

I am ambivalent

I like Friday nights for the atmosphere and having the weekend free but I also like a Sunday afternoon as it means getting to the game is part of a more relaxing day and then getting home on a Sunday evening to relax and wind down.

In the olden days, Saturday games allowed a Sunday recovery for players and spectators. Bring them back.

I'm not particularly keen on Fridays. You've got the hassle of traffic on the western bypass and in the winter conditions are usually better for play and spectating in the afternoon than in the evening.

I enjoy the atmosphere of night games but prefer Sunday games ,as the last Metro from the airport to the city centre is just before 11 & have to dash up to Bank Foot
