Sixways is all set for its biggest Friday night crowd of the season tonight with ticket sales poised to smash through the 11,000 barrier.

The game has captured the imagination of the Worcester fans, who have been flocking to buy their tickets.

The highest Friday night attendance so far this season has been the 10,694 supporters who were at Sixways to see Warriors beat Bath 16-7 on November 25.

However, the Falcons supporters donít seem to be as keen to make the long trip south to Worcester as they have returned 225 of their 250-ticket allocation.

I think we might be able between us to buy 25 of you a drinkwinking smiley

Probably similar in number to how many fans come from the far better supported (in terms of numbers...) southern clubs up to Newcastle on a working day Friday evening, if not more considering a number of away fans up here are actually students living here.

I think it's normal for us to have one bus for these long trips plus a few others who come from elsewhere who I imagine may have bought their tickets through Worcester rather than through the Falcons.

I'll be in the fanzone tonight, looking to continue my good record in the West(ish) Country - two bonus point wins and a draw (we'll forget the heavy defeat at Exeter)!

A bus load heading your way, about all you will get for a Friday night game 250 miles away.

We are due a win at Sixways Tything so prepare to watch & weep. I will ask one of the travellers to bring some tissues for you.

Worcester are a Midlands team not West Country.

Good luck this evening

The Supporters Club bus will be complemented by a scattering of us Falcons exiles living in the midlands southwards and able to get to Sixways on a Friday evening.

Sounds like its going to be a great atmosphere tonight. A few months ago there was a general feeling of decline and despair surrounding the Falcons, but since the arrival of the new owner there has been a growing sense of revival and renewal.

Maybe it has come a bit late for this season, but it is by no means certain yet we will be relegated, so the Warriors can be sure that a rejuvenated Falcons will be taking to the pitch this evening intent on winning.

Best wishes tonight.

I've got 3O odd travelling down the bus and know of 20 or so making own way - drinks certainly welcome though.

keep yer tissues Monkey1. I'm taking the short walk to the ground tonight hoping to watch a game of Rugby with two sides giving their all.
If Falcons come away with the points in front of a packed partisan crowd they will have deserved it and will leave Sixways with my best wishes.
Noone takes any pleasure down here at Falcons predicament we've experienced it enough times.
Good luck winking smiley

Too far on a Friday night for me, however 50 Falcons v 10000 Warriors should be enough to win the shouting match at least look forward to being able to hear you all on the Radio

Usual great visit to Sixways only spoiled by the rugby. I think will remember the upside down beer pouring.
