& Johnny won't want to go anywhere!

Edit: I'd go for Lansdowne, on the basis that you take out the best cutlery when you have important visitors :D

Would love it to be in the RDS but can't see it happening.

Got to be Aviva. I was dubious about the Clermont match being held there as thought it'd end up being half empty, but seeing the job the marketing team did to pretty much fill it the week before Christmas I can see a sellout for a qtr final in spring. Also the extra cash is always nice too.

Has to be aviva for me. I was also a touch reticent about the Clermont fixture. We are on fire though. The extra revenue will serve 2 purposes; increase the coffers to benefit future generations and widen our audience. No brainer.

Also we have been tearing up trees in sh!te weather. Come the qtr finals on the best pitch on the country I reckon there's only 1 way to go.

Personally, i'd prefer the RDS, but there's no way Leinster will turn down the payday of a sellout in the Aviva & to be honest, they're probably right.

A full house in Aviva for me. Get all ST holders who ahve priority purchase to buy as many tickets as poissble for friends and family too b4 they go on public sale to ensure a core hardcore noisy home crowd rather than the day trippers out for a day out in sunny mid April

+1.

EDIT: Although, it's sometimes like that in the South anyway so it's not as big a loss for me as some. :?

Full house in Lansdowne, no doubt.

It's our future home stadium week in, week out imo and it's currently our occasional home stadium for the bigger games. Either way, it's our ground, and let's make it our show piece fortress.

+1 for me too, i like your moxy sir! it's a great idea to offer good seats to hardcore vocal supporters who will get the rest of the crowd going.

it's amazing the way we make ourselves felt when away. i was at the stoop and wembley and i've never witnessed support like it.

Also havr to take into account the additional revenue that the 13K STH will give as we will also have to purchase tickets from now on for home Heino game(s)

Not only should it be Lansdowne, not only will it be Lansdowne, but I cannot think of a single good reason why it could possibly be anywhere else. And anyone who thinks they can is on drugs/wrong.

FFS we are only in the RDS a wet day. It's not like it's our home ground since 1692 or anything.

Don't think there's any way it won't be LR. Makes sense for a few reasons.

Aye, think it makes sense for more than a number of reasons. It kind of leaves us in limbo though, with knowing where our true "home" is...

Has to be Aviva..... our season started there against Munster and our best performance of the season (so far) was there against ASM.

Atmosphere was great both days....
Shake your di*ks, this pissing contest is over!
