Royalsfan I read somewhere that the final is played at the ground of one of the finalists, IIRC the comment was that it is decided by the organisers based on which would get the biggest crowd.....
Wikipedia has detailed stats for 2015-16 competition which includes average attendances. The final was played at Headingley between Yorkshire Carnegie and London Welsh, Carnegie's average attendance prior to the final was greater than London Welsh.
Props are not stupid Wikipedia says that we play the semifinal at the Madstad against Jersey Reds on Sunday 2nd of April. The other semi will be Munster A or Ulster A against Ealing, who destroyed Scarlets today.
Does anyone know where the final would be?
The final should be at St Peter as long as Jersey beat your lads two weekends in a row.
Don't kick it pick it up and GO FORWARD
there's supposed to be an announcement tomorrow (mon) confirming the SF draw. as a general rule of thumb it's best not to place too much faith in wikipedia, and booking travel ahead of official confirmation is something to be done at one's own risk. i'm pretty certain that the 'club with highest average crowd hosts final' theory is untrue...
I heard last week that Ealing will travel to Ireland for their semi. I'd imagine final will be played at Irish or Jersey with the hope it's Irish v an Irish side. Jersey may have something to say about that!
The clubs official website has a match report from Saturday's game.
It states that we are now at home to Jersey Reds, - I'm sure the club must have been informed of this by the organising committee as opposed to Wikipedia!.
We all know it's Jersey on 2 April everyone as club site says so. I think question we really want to know is where we would play final if we qualify. I say if because in 2 weeks time Jersey could be out of the hunt for the play offs so they would probably target the B&I cup whereas we will be focussed on play offs

Apparently if Munster and LI qualify for final it will be held in Waterford.
