    Bledisloe Cup 2019

    The hospitality packages have just arrived, giving me some decisions to make. Should I go for the $500 or $1400 package? If I go for the $1400 package will I survive the 2.5hrs "free" booze before kickoff? Will the more expensive packages give me access to DeCline? Or should I stick to the cheap plebeian seats - I know my place.

    All of these decisions fade in significance when compared to the big question ...should I go at all?

    Should the sea of blue turn up in big numbers in Force shirts to show the world rugby is strong in the West, or should we boycott the game as a protest and deny RA the income?

    I'm thinking of staying at home, what are others planning?

    Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

    I will be going, Costs Western Australian a lot more to see any events, so i wont be boycotting an event Perth.

    Importantly the ABs are the best rugby team in the world and as fans we should want to see that.

    I will probably wear my force Jersey

    2.5 hours is nowhere near enough drinking time for me to want to watch a wallabies game.

    I will go and wear force gear and hope there are enough ex force players in the team to provide local interest but won't be spending 1500 unless they are serving Grange

    I'll definitely be going. Never seen a bledisloe, and definitely wanna see the worlds best team in person battle it out. Im more interested on what goes on off the ball than around the ball with the All Blacks. They have amazing defensive cover and seem to always run lines which put the opposition on the back foot. Love their style. Probably found the style of the 2010 All Blacks the most difficult to counter though, their counter rucking skills that year were superb.

    As things currently stand, Iím not interested in going. Iíve seen a Bled before so will likely watch this one in a Perth pub and donate the money I would have spent on a ticket to RWA for them to spend on community rugby
