Sadly, direct flights are only available at the beginning of the season. One way wouldn't be much good; I remember from a bus tour we took years ago on holiday how much an incomer needs in cash resources to buy property and I would be a long way short!
That's easy for you to say.

But the food at the Stade is not all that, and if you love a gale then the weather is for you Albert
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

Also not the easiest trip by public transport. Big fan of the curry and chips though.

Come to Donny for your Championship Rugby fix - better beer, better food, better supporters than those down South Albert Wink and the best Championship Ground.

I am almost given up watching at this level - the cost and enjoyment factors are better lower down the leagues. 

The answer to this and frankly almost all problems in life, is simply to become a Bedford fan. Family club, well-run, sticks within its means, great running rugby, decent beer, superb match day atmosphere. Job done.
Run it!

Richard (and any other travelling Coventry support).

If it's entertainment you're  looking for, I am delighted to be able to invite you to the third and final Knights of the Roundy Tables Banquet for this season.  Any former attendee will attest to the splendid pre-match festivities on offer and I am prepared to guarantee that this one will not disappoint.

20th April, 12.30 sharp; 16 groats plus the cost of a terrace ticket will see you right.  And I'll wager the rugby will be enjoyable too.

I'm very happy to endorse this one. Pure python and as good an expression of rugby hospitality and fun as I've ever experienced. You will not regret doing it.
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Awful for the players, staff, and supporters. My son went through it at Welsh and I know he really struggled with it as did many of the players who became disillusioned and left the professional game. Hope they all find some certainty soon.
One thing in their favour though where Welsh were looked upon as a bit of a problem child by the RFU Carnegie have often been mentioned as prospective members of an extended ring fenced premiership even when near the bottom of the Championship. Will be interesting to see how the RFU handle this as there is a precedent with both clubs run by a Micky Mouse board of directors. I suspect they will not be quite so keen to pull the plug in this case.

I agree with most of this except the view that it is expensive. There are obviously poor matches in dire weather but in my view Championship rugby is ridiculously cheap entertainment compared to the cost of seeing things like a music or comedy event or almost any other professional sporting match. There seems to be a view that rugby should be virtually free to watch and the grounds should sell beer at below the cost of pubs nearby. I'm sure it would be great if a mythical "someone else" with deep pockets should put money in so that we can criticise the team and moan that they haven't put in enough.  I enjoy watching rugby and imo supporters should properly pay a reasonable price for maintaining decent playing and ground standards.
