Rugby and Beer - Cardiff Blues V Sale Sharks (and Pizza/food if folk fancy)

Thought this might be a good one even for non-rugby fans/followers also as its Sale, who may actually be worse than the Blues(!), so it gives a better chance of winning than usual - and should, hopefully, guarantee a few tries either way - I saw Sale lost by 60 points the other week, which has given me more hope than usual :)...

Anyway, the match is Cardiff Blues V Sale Sharks. Ticket prices are £10 for standing (we'll be standing, north terrace - obviously you can buy for elsewhere if you think we smell ;)...seats are more expensive though) and you can purchase from here:
https://www.eticketing.co.uk/cardiffblues/details/event.aspx?itemref=831

It is a bit of hassle ordering through the website though, so I recommend phoning[masked] - and you can order for delivery or collection at the ticket office, either on the day or prior. In fact, you can just go to the ticket office and buy during the week (it's open 9-5pm).

They do sell on the day, but i think they've been selling out recently so not guaranteed that way, so to be safe either buy or reserve prior.

If you are collecting on the day, I suggest getting there an hour before kick off (which is 3.40pm) as the queues are usually long/slow on the day, but we'll be there from about 3 getting our beers in (again, lots of long, slow queuing so give yourself chance if you want a cider or beer).

We'll be heading to gatekeeper pub (i think it's called - a wetherspoons or lloyds pub) about 2pm if folks want to meet earlier.

If you don't have my number send me a message and I'll get it to you.

    We are in north terrace stand, exit 13 on the halfway line. Look for a woman in a red coat

      we'll be in town from about 2 so can meet folks at the gatekeeper pub or meet folks at one of the beer vans from around 3. as long as folks don't get there too close to kick off, it should be relatively to find us in the stands. i'm not sure how many folks already know each other/have numbers etc but feel free to message me for my mobile number incase you want to text/call on the day if things get desperate ;) ha
