Who wants a bus to Northampton?

The Supporters Club could do with some feedback on this one please.

Saturday 1st December, 3pm kick off, fairly local game, should be an obvious game to send a bus to. Nice late start, not far down the road, get back early, and Sunday to recover.

The thing that puts the kiss of death on this fixture each year however is the ticket prices, and yes they are obscene. You can get really rubbish seats in the corners for 25 - 35, decent seats are 45 upward. Standing is so limited it will probably sell out unless you monitor the Saints ticket website daily & snap them up the day they go on sale. They do early bird prices if you buy 4 weeks in advance, but as they only seem to offer tickets up for sale about 5 weeks in advance this offer is pointless, if you blink you will miss it.

My feeling is that yes the ticket prices do seem to be a rip off, but we haven't been for a while, they are only perhaps 10 - 15 more than we usually pay so it isn't a life-changing amount of money, and it is one of the great cathedrals of rugby. I am tempted to say that we run this bus, but once we make that decision we can't go back. If we say it will go then it will go no matter how few people travel, and I will feel awful if the SC loses a lot of money because the bus is empty.

Your views will be appreciated then we can make a decision soon.

Thank you.
