Any Way Jose ?

Media reports have Stamford Bridge joining Wembley as a possible venue for the London Wasps versus Munster opening Heinken Cup game on November 10th.

Media reports have Stamford Bridge joining Wembley as a possible venue for the London Wasps versus Munster opening Heinken Cup game on November 10th.

Tony Copsey, Wasps’ chief executive-designate is quoted in yesterday’s Daily mailing saying, "We are very serious about taking the Munster match to a bigger venue. Five options are being considered and we hope we can strike a good commercial deal fairly soon."

One teeny weeny difficulty about Stamford Bridge is that Chelsea play Everton that day and so its unlikely that Jose Maurinho will countenance a postponement although Wasps apparently are prepared to put the game back 24 hours if the venue becomes available.

But if Chelsea decide that its makes good commercial sense to have London Wasps pay a portion of John Terry’s one week salary they then need to approach ERC for a time slot on the Sunday.

Games have already been scheduled that day with starting times of 1pm (Cardiff Blues v Bristol), 3pm (Saracens v Glasgow) and 4pm (Clermont v Llanelli Scarlets).

So what odds London Wasps v Munster Stamford Bridge 11.30am Sunday 11th ??

Please say No Way, Jose.
