So where do teams visiting Glos stay?

Not sure about this season but several have previously stayed at Hilton Puckrup near Tewkesbury.

Even Sarries A team stay there.

(individual suites of course......)

Wasps and Sale also.

Away teams stay at the Moat hotel in Brockworth. It is the only RFU accredited in Gloucestershire, I am led to believe.
England U20's regularly stay here and there are often prem referees staying.

I've been fortunate enough to meet most of the premier teams. During the World Cup, Argentina, Tonga & Japan stayed there.
Japan were there the night they beat South Africa, they all came into the sauna and chatted away, Eddie Jones was with them and mixed in. An absolute top, top bloke.

In contrast in Rugby League, where there is much less money, all Super League teams fly to Perpignan and back in the same day when they play Catalan!

You'd think that they could push the boat out for that one, after all the other away games are a quick jaunt along the M62 :D

Moat hotel?

Is that what is now called the Cheltenham Chase Hotel?

Yes Chase Hotel, still referred to as the Moat by locals.

I recall an interview with Nigel Melville on this subject, although I think it mainly referred to playing Bath at the Rec. He said they'd tried all manner of different accomodation/travel permutations but they didn't seem to make any difference.

We're all frustrated about Saturday for obvious reasons. Some are trying to explain it by looking at match preparation, others have talked about selection or the absence of a number of first choice starters, but for me that's missing the point.

I know it's not what people want to read, but the best explanation I've seen is the one put forward by ALT; this is what Gloucester do. It maybe that Ackerman is able to bring about cultural change that will, in time, enable us to move beyond this, but sadly there's no quick fix.
