Default Are rugby supporters stupid.?

€50 euro to see Ireland v Italy on Saturday €10 for a child ticket
€75 euro to see Ireland v Wales later on €25 for a child ticket

Who wins here the rugby union or the fans that refuse to pay those prices for what are after all friendly matched

How dare you - in rugby they are called "test" matches!!!
These games tend to be corporate jollies anyway with the gatt and grub taking precedence over any particular interest in what's happening on the field.

The GAA are pretty fond of gouging themselves.

Not much pride in the parish at this years Munster football final.

A game that will only really matter to supporters from two counties, as opposed to 2 countries warming up for a world cup.

17k down the Pairc for the Munster football final, don't tell me who has their pricing wrong m8.

Fiver to watch my local rugby club.

Whats your point?

The Italy game will bring a decent crowd, the Wales game will be a sellout.
Same as the six nations.


Irish rugby home internationals are generally full stadium affairs, not something the GAA have to worry about too often.
