2006 Pre-season friendlies

Published by:

Two seasons ago, this site took a look at the build up “enjoyed” by the Celtic League teams to the 2004-2005 season. It didn’t make happy readying. Of the 17 games played, the then Celtic League teams only managed one victory. This season, results have improved, so are we going to see more success for the Welsh and Scots in Europe?

A feature of the ZP clubs’ warm up games was that they often fielded more than one team on a weekend. Wasps, Northampton, Bristol all made use of squad strength in playing simultaneous games

Last season the Guiness Premiership attracted 1.3m spectators. The Celtic Legaue – with two few teams – attracted 571,000. The English are expecting 100,000 specatators for the opening week. What number will turn out on a Friday evening for the launch of the Magners League?
