Tonight the RFU have announced the allocation for the last game December 6th. Who pulls your strings Sweeny

2000 allowed into Twickenham I understand

400 allocated to NHS  fantastic. 

600 ALLOCATED TO LOCAL CLUBS    --- Why?? 

1000 allocated to the REST OF THE COUNTRY

It could have been worse, all to Debenture holders and none to Clubs.

I suspect that all debenture holders would have expected to get a ticket offered.

Presumably it's to avoid people travelling and risking the spread of the virus. I hate to give the RFU credit, but in this case they're just being responsible.

Best shout I have heard is to move the game to The Rec at Redruth. Let the French deal with 4000 supporters, Hellfire Corner and a cracking atmosphere!

Tier 1 is 4,000 or 50% of capacity, depending on which is *lower* - so (and I've enjoyed my visits to the Rec in the past) the choice is 2,000 in Twickenham in tier 2, or (assuming Wiki has got the ground capacity right at 3500 - big if I know...) 1750 in Redruth in tier 1.

Again assuming wiki is right that it's capacity is 4000, you could have 2,000 in the Mennaye in Tier 1. Bottom line, until the S4C is built, I don't think there's a rugby ground in Tier 1 with a capacity big enough for 4000 to be achieved as less than 50% of it.

Doubt it if the bars are going to be shut - obviously they don't serve scotch eggs
