portugal might be a nice destination for the finals after their world cup. rugby is growing there.
It was the same in Lansdowne last year. The Challenge Cup is never going to get a full house unless there's a local team in the final.

fair point. Marseille had two french teams in the challenge final, the year before last and it was rammed. great stadium and location, I prefer marseille to St Denis.
