An away Semi, in an awkward Midlands UK city that still had a significantly larger Munster attendance than Saracens.
IMO a lot of the current attendance issues across sport is to do with a combo of high prices and Leinster rugby aside, inconsistent/sub-par performance.
Munster will sell out Thomond Park for maybe 6 games a year, the rest of them will be played in Cork.
Leinster have a similar situation with the Aviva maybe will fill it 3 times per year rest of the games in the RDS.
With particular regard to the FAI, the wheels feel off the band wagon a few years ago.
Lack of a decent team, lack of any real stand out players or performance over the past few years and a lot of apathy towards the association and the pricing.
It was common knowledge for years Delaney ran it as a quasi-fief and now the whole governance structure needs reassessment and replacement.
