Roll up, roll up...

Much is being made of the lack of "traditional" rugby grounds selected for use at the 2015 World Cup.

It seems that proponents of these grounds would prefer England to host one of the world's biggest sporting spectacles in tired old drafty stadia with poor visibility and jurassic toilet facilities.

Instead we are to attend the world's biggest rugby festival at the likes of Twickenham, Wembley, the Olympic Stadium, the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, the Etihad Stadium in Manchester and, of course, the 'Cathedral on the Hill' - St. James' Park, Newcastle.

Modern, world class stadia for a world class sporting event.

Unfortunately the price of tickets is also likely to be world class.

Villa Park in Birmingham is probably the "worst" of the grounds, and thought it was a decent stadium.(albeit for football, I saw Aston Villa lose an FA Cup game to Kevin Keegan's third division Fulham back in 1999)
