Default Two UK games in 2014

The has been a lot of talk about the Jags playing 2 games at Wembley in 2014, the one home game that we already know about and an "away" game as a second. Is this a good way for the team to continue to grow in the Uk without giving up a second home game?

Depends if they improve. If the team is, as is likely, still tanking next year then the reaction would be terrible to 2 games.
Plus it's quite a disadvantage with just one bye to come over twice

I'd be surprised if we play two games. Delighted, but surprised. Certainly the only way it happens is as you suggest, with one being an away game.

Has there? I've missed all this talk. Seems unlikely but I'd been dead chuffed to see the mighty Jags twice.

There was one off the cuff comment in an interview by the Commish some months back which was quickly rejected by the Jags. Can't see it happening.

Ah thanks for that chap. So not "a lot of talk" at all then!

I've seen in mentioned quite a few times - but only by the "Jags are going to London" crowd

Default one way it could work

Is for the team to play back-2-back games in London and stay here for a fortnight.

I certainly don't advocate it happening but it would be an acid test of whether fans will stump up for games on consecutive weeks as would happen if we had a franchise (also something I don't advocate).

I think this is the mostly likely way of it happening, if it happens.

Home game at Wembley week 7
Away game at Wembley week 8
Bye week 9
