Catch Up

Pubs are going to be opening outdoors in Wales from today. It is strange they have only been open in England for a week and a bit, but when I went for a couple of pints in the Standard yesterday afternoon, it felt as if they had never been away.

Wales ready to play four home games at Twickenham during autumn 'festival of rugby' says the Torygraph today. My initial reaction was that this is madness, but the article goes on to say:
The WRU, which is facing a £50 million loss in revenue if games are not rescheduled, has been forced to consider other venues given warnings from the Welsh government that crowds are ­unlikely to be permitted in Cardiff until the new year.
Between a rock and a hard place.

If the deal is closed, one of the games would be the rescheduled Six Nations clash with Scotland. I had tickets for Wales v Scotland in Cardiff. They have been on my mantelpiece since the it was cancelled. I wonder if they can be swapped for the Twickenham clash.
