First away game of the season and there's no TV scheduled so might be worth a visit. Handy enough flights to Cardiff and Bristol.
Time not confirmed but it's listed as Friday so presumably around the usual time.

Ryan Air to Bristol, out early Fri (06.35) back Sat afternoon (16.35) is currently €36.
Inexpensive hotel (Ibis) €50 for room.
If 3 or 4 were considering going I'll could hire a car from Bristol Airport.

Think there is a National Express bus at 05.00 from Newport to Bristol airport (arrive 5.50)

At that hour of the morning you won't even need a hotel room on Fri night :whistle:

Will try and make it down to this one. Pretty crap having the 2 Welsh games on Friday evenings, makes it hard for supports on both sides to get to them with work.

Handy one for me - I'm due in Cardiff that weekend so I'll go down on the Friday to catch the Newport game.

Any ideas on pubs to meet up? I went to the game last year (terrible game and terrible performance) and remember one place the Clan was based in (no idea of the name).

Accommodation booked. Got an Airbnb right beside the ground with parking.

Many thinking of heading over to this?

Any idea of where Connacht fans are going to sit? Hazell or Bisley stand?

Don't mind as long as we are 'sitting' and out of the inevitable rain.

Hazell "B" puts us on the Half way line

Last year the majority of Connacht supporters were in the terrace on the Hazell stand side. I sat in the front row in section B and was part of the gang which were standing in front of us.

Seats are not very comfortable though in the Hazell stand, very tight and low to the ground. On a positive, the roof is nice and low so the rain has less chance of getting in.

An uncomfortable dry seat is better any time than 2 hours of standing.
Match tickets not available yet on the Dragon's website

I sat in the Bisley stand last year with a mate and it was grand. Prefer that to standing anytime.

Strange that tickets aren't up for the Connacht game on the Dragons site. Tickets for the games against Ulster, Kings, Ospreys are all up which take place after the Connacht game.

Dragons have confirmed kick off time of 19:30. Assume tickets will go on sale in the next few days.

I'm heading for this one, same flights are 4Dogs I think, although I plan on shopping in Bristol town before heading towards Wales.

as for seating, was standing on terrace in front of Joey last year, it wasn't bad, but I'm open to suggestions.
