A 6pm Twickenham game. Can't say I'm surprised as it's West Coast teams but yowser, that'll be fun! Anyone not able to get the Monday off work and staying over will be getting home at circa 3am if they live outside the M25!

Glad to be giving that game a swerve. As you say the Rams v Cards was always going to be a later kickoff with both teams in the Pacific time zone. Therefore that game should've been played at Wembley instead and swapped with Saints v Dolphins at Twickenham.

The travel chaos will be horrific after 9pm on a Sunday night from Twickenham.

I thought it was just me and I'd accidentally changed my settings. It's becoming totally frustrating using this forum.

We left straight after the Rams Giants game at 6pm last year and got home to Nottingham at 11.30, after 2 hours plus to get to the M25. GF's brother is a Cards fan or I'd avoid this one myself but as it is we'll be driving down in the morning and stopping over close to the stadium after the game. Normally for Wembley games we stay over in central London but heading into central London from Twickenham after a game is a nightmare so not an option even for a 2.30 game.

I caught the train from Twickenham to Windsor as I live in Berkshire but still wasn't impressed by last year's experience. I felt bad for anyone travelling to Central London.

Looking at the schedule I'm more than happy to stay at home and watch Rodgers v Brees on Gamepass.

I had a 'cunning plan' for Twickenham last year only to find Transport for London foiling me with their essential maintenance 'dastardly plan'. Since I want to see the Cards game and get home before Monday sunrise I am open to ideas. Trying to get to Worcestershire with minimal driving.

Similar for me. Since reading other tales on here I think I hit some kind of sweet spot or got massively lucky. The busses to Richmond were brilliant and then over ground line was empty for my connection to the mainline. I don't know if the later time will effect me. Tbh the bigger issue for me is watching less of the other games that week.
