WRU should pay for Australia shambles
I HAD the misfortune to try to attend the Wales v Australia game in Cardiff on Saturday night.
We left half an hour to get into the ground via gate one.
After a ridiculous period standing in a crowd of rugby fans in the pouring rain, we finally entered the ground in time to see the last five minutes of the first half.
This is totally unacceptable and these arrangements merely confirm my view that the WRU couldn’t run a hoop down a hill with a stick.
Equally annoying was the way the police horse riders led a charging gallop down Westgate Street that was reminiscent of the approach to rioters in the nineteenth century.
This was to clear the proletariat from the street prior to a motorcade surrounded by outriders transporting the English prince to the ground. I bet he didn’t get wet or miss the start of the game.
I have now been told that the WRU warned people that there were new security measures in place and accordingly, we should arrive early.
Well, here is a warning for the buffoons at the WRU. People will not arrive at the ground some two hours before kick-off and if they can’t get the crowd into the ground efficiently (as happens in other sporting venues) then matches will be played with grounds half full.
Grow up, WRU, and start by refunding everyone who bought tickets at least half of the ticket price to partially compensate for their lamentable failure on Saturday. Steve Roberts Cambridge
