True, but don't underestimate the additional costs when the SA sides joined. 

Budgets for this season were set some time ago, but with the addition of a trip to SA, no additional funds have been made available by PRO14 to anyone as far as I know. Whilst we were out in SA, Edinburgh were also there for 2 weeks, and reversed fixtures with us.

Had a quick look, and can't find any flights into Venice today from UK. All flights leaving today get in early tomorrow am.

Book a hotel, fly tomorrow, play Sunday return Monday.

I was led to believe that ALL costs involved going to SA are met by Guinness!

You may well be right. Things may have changed since I got my information.

Not many of the supporters on the scheduled flight from bristol would have been able to find a different route. Alternative options were long and expensive.

I'd like reassurance that the TEAM managed to get there! I assume they did, somehow, on the charter...

Thanks - that's a relief. I hope the rearranged travel arrangements won't have been too tiring for the boys.

Just home from Treviso. Sympathy to all those that had there flights cancelled but we did our best to support the team. Great welcome from Treviso and a great performance. Great travelling support who made it yet again a wonderful Scarlet weekend. Roll on to Bath.
