Guys,

I'm the lucky holder of a ticket for both semi finals and will be in Paris with similar lucky mates to watch the games.

Is anyone else in Paris and fancying a beer or two this weekend? I'm on my lonesome Friday night so recommendations for beers would be welcome.

O'Sullivans outside the Moulin Rouge could be a good place to be post match and it's only a few stops on the Metro from Stade France on line 13(get off at Place de Clichy(sp) and walk about 5 mins to Moulin Rouge)

Spent a very good Saturday and Sunday there after last weekends matches :D

Go to the Bastille.

Kitty O'Shea's is on the corner. It is worth a quick look, but if you go past it and turn right, there is a longish cobbled type street full of rugby related bars. Rue de something; bit like a Rose St in Edinburgh.

Thats perfect, I am staying at Abbesses anyway as I used to live on Rue Lepic so sorted.

@ LWM, I applied online at the RWC website in April... Of my friends that also did this, I'd say 50% got tickets which is a fair hit rate!

Regret now that I didn't take up my semi allocation, and final tickets, when offered. Really fancy another weekend in Paris and looking at the pictures coming out of there wish I was there now, mind you I don't think the liver could handle anymore alcohol after last Sundays session :crying:

Just back, I'll post a report for those that are interested.

Re RWC Final tickets. the prices on ebay are insane and lies.

I was offered a pair of 341 EUR tickets for 1500 total (so about 100% above).

Also on Friday 2 for 1600 (don't recall face value)

and a pair of 500 face for 1500

In my book its not worth paying that much for a ticket to a 80 minute game but I'm not the only one.

The reasons tickets are plentiful and shouldn't be at ebay prices are:

France lost - 30,000 tickets to go
NZ and Australia lost - big groups bought semi and final ticket packages and so the Kiwi's and so on are trying to offload and see a bit more of Europe instead.

Just FYI

I'll be there next week.
