    You'd be surprised mate. If the locals are causing murder the council won't sanction events, otherwise I'm sure the RFU would be quite happy to redirect some cash from Football into their game. They won't sanction football matches there as they have a limit for events every year and rugby are first priority followed by keeping their share of the concert market.

    It'd be a nice bit of closure for some of us but I can't see them getting past Chelsea even with a goal lead.

    I'd give them more of a chance if away goals counted at 90 minutes instead of 120.

    No away goals rule at all this year. No extra time either:

    “In the Semi-Final ties, if the aggregate score is level at the end of the second game no extra time shall be played and the tie shall be decided by the taking of kicks from the penalty mark in accordance with procedures as approved by IFAB.”

    Definitely fancy Chelsea then, could see Spurs bottling the shootout. Thank fuck they've gotten rid of that mental away goal rule.

    It's a silly rule in a domestic cup, I agree. For European football, I'm not so sure. It was a product of a time when clubs would go and put 10 men behind the ball for a 0-0 away from home, and I'm not sure that applies any more. But it could perhaps be argued that the reason is doesn't apply is because of the away goal rule. Guess it would have to be tried to see.

    Only thing I care about is that we don't get allocated the east side again....not sure I can stomach much more of the pubs at that end
