    I heard on the radio that the average ticket cost was $6000.
    Can that be true????

    Yep. So much demand for them they can charge ludicrous prices.

    Probably tout scum on reseller sites, we get enough of them for the games at Wembley and spurs, though apparently many of them ended up losing money last season as they weren't able to ship their tickets. Serves them right.

    I was looking at going and the cheapest I could find was 5,000, right up in the sky. A decent seat was 10,000.

    Rather pay the $2,000 for a Fury Wilder ticket

    It'll be worth it when the Vikings get there though!

    Fantastic Fed Cup Tennis match on the Beeb ATM between GB and Slovakia...one set each 6-5 on serve.

    Scotland v England 0-3
    Tough game to call as the weather is winning really.

    A bit of a farce of a rugby match. No complaints, England made fewer mistakes than Scotland.

    The weather was the culprit...a commentator described the conditions as virtually unplayable.

    England improved after Ben Youngs replaced Willi Heinz, mainly because he didn’t keep kicking the ball out on the full.

    Watched the 6 Nations match, Wales v France. Entering the last 10 minutes and France are apparently at 27-16. You would think the order would be to keep the ball and recycle through slow phase, but no, they kept on kicking the ball away, thus inviting Wales to apply pressure in the closing stages

    Going to try, but i have had such a major pass from Mrs No7 so far, I don't want to over play it.
