England v Italy

So now we hear this game will be played behind closed doors , zero crowd. Canít see the point myself, why bother just postpone it till the autumn, zero crowd = zero atmosphere, will be like a training run. This game doesnít really matter except to those with tickets and now desperately having to claim air fares and hotels back when UK Govt advice is its still OK to travel to Italy so they cant claim on insurance.
Also the next question is how big can a crowd potentially be before a game gets cancelled? Will we have any home games after this weekend? Iíd imagine the game at Spurs is unlikely to happen for a start

Obviously feel sorry for all the fans who were going but spare a thought for Sergio Paresi. Wasn't this supposed to be his big send off into international retirement?

Wasnít Italyís last WC game supposed to be that and it was called off too. Not been a lot of luck in Italy lately.

We were going but, because we didn't book our tickets through England's official tour company, I understand we can't get the money spent on tickets back. We booked direct with the Italian Rugby Federation. And, of course, we won't get the money back for our flights or accommodation either. We were really looking forward to a few days in Rome, not least of all because we might have had some better weather!

Iím in Italy now. Great time to visit, tourist sites very quiet (did Pompeii yesterday and no queue at all to get in) and weather is lovely
