I have spoken to the scarlets today and I have been informed that sport experiences will not be running a tripto the leinster game as there has not been enough interest shown. So if you are interested start phoning them and get your names down to see if they will reconsider their decision

This is getting a bit ridiculous that they expect people to ask if a trip is being run to guage interest before it is organised. If they dont advertise then its no suprise that people arent getting in touch to book, particularly for games in France/Ireland when people book flights/ferry early for the best prices.

they`ve got so out of touch with this.
 
its like not opening the shop unless there`s a queue outside of more than ten people!!!
 
sort them out moony. people have started making their own plans as soon as the fixtures came out so as to get best prices on flights and hotels etc. they needed to make that choice in the off season!!!!!
 
thats why there isn`t much interest now, cos everyone who is going has probably made plans!!!
 
a package needs to be put together within a week of the fixtures being brought out, and then advertised along with the season ticket drive.
 
flippin heck even the old guard at stradey could get this right.

the club have lost all the old away travellers to other means. it will take time to build that back, a trip needs to be put on, and it goes every away game, for people to get back in the habit.
 
its not the fans fault this has gotten this bad. the club forgot their duties. have you ever heard a rugby or football club as big as ours not having official away travel?
 
we have a bigger away following than most league football sides. yet they always have a few busses running.

Is there a train to Dublin which coincides with the ferry arriving at 18.30hrs... or is an overnight in Wexford required?

I think the trouble is that Ryan Air refused block flight tickets to tour operators, I know that Sports Experience had requested them. They informed me weeks ago that they were finding this Dublin fixture difficult to arrange a reasonable attractive package, at the same time they informed me that they would be definately arranging a package to Brive. I do not think Sports Experience can be critisised too much , but I would have thought the region through Edwards would have arranged a coach trip as they did a couple of years ago for the Celtic cup final in Dublin.

Seriously tempted as although I've spent a week a month working in Wexford for the last couple of years I've never done a train trip on the emerald isle. I was thinking of the Fishguard - Rosslare 14.30 sailing on the Friday then returning home on the 21.15 sailing on Sunday.
No idea on costs as a foot passenger... it usually costs me around £250 return for the car and stena plus...

you can get a train ticket from llanelli station that covers the ferry and gets you to dublin. i'd advise a few days off afterwards though. those dublin trips take a while to get over. getting upside down in the halfpenny bridge inn after watching the scarlets live in dublin would be a real treat though.
let me check the piggy bank again.

I was told by sport experience that there is not enough time to arrange a package just incase there isnt enough interest and then the scarlets told me that as they had limited interest eventhough the trip is in 2 months, surely they could atleast look at something, if they released prices im sure there would be alot more interest and also it wasnt announced at any of the recent matches ab olut names being taken for this game so how do people who dont read this forum know whats going on?

there will be about 6-10 of us not being able to attend if there isnt a package available
