On the plus side we’ll have more chance of winning if there’s no home support.

Looks like most supporters will be heading to the South of France, unless flights are cancelled there will be no refunds .

I won't. I value the health of my family too much to risk it.

It's a lot of money to lose if you booked transfers hotels and flights
 
I don't see anyway that travelling fans will be allowed into the game but I also don't see anyway they will put a travel ban on going to france
 
I wouldn't blame anyone for going or for not going
 
There are arguments for both courses of action

The heart says 'go', the head says 'no'.  Given the Chief Health Officer's predictions last night we might all be in lock-down by then anyway and flights cancelled.  Wait and see I think

Fortunately we've managed to cancel / get refunds for hotels & airport parking. Match ticket costs should be refunded. Easyjet flight club membership allows flight route / dates to be changed without penalty, though given the current climate I'm not sure its worth the hassle of travelling anywhere at moment.

Not sure going to the Cote d'Azur on the shant is such a wise idea..

If there is one good thing to come out of this - it's the possibility that our players will have a decent break to recover fully from all their knocks. It seemed like a Mission Impossible, anyway.

I'm looking out over the Cleddau as I type mun…

The thought of trying to sup a glass of vin rouge through a surgical mask casts a shadow over some great memories from the previous Toulon trips.

Didn't say if the game is being played behind closed doors though.
