If you are not going to watch Pompey take on Wigan at the JJB, you are in the Pompey area on Saturday night and you plan on watching England in the Rugby world cup final then the Pompey Sports Bar could be the place to be.

It is only £1.50 per pint – which when you think what some places charge is fantastic – and it is free to get in. The added bonus – besides cheering the egg chasers onto hopefully another world cup triumph, to restore some national pride after the footballers defeat in Russia – is the fact that you could also win some free matchday prizes too.

If you buy a drink you enter a competition to win a hospitality table for 10 at the league cup match with Blackburn, if England win the world cup then there will be another competition for a pair of tickets to watch the league cup match.

Had I lived in the area – which sadly I do not – as I will be watching the Rugby anyway at less than two quid a pint – with the added benefit of being able to win something – I would be down there. Although to be honest at the same time if I did live in the area I would have probably taken advantage of the free coach travel – so if I could have got on a coach I would have been travelling back from Pompey’s match at the JJB!

Either way this is another fine offer, something, which I am sure plenty will take advantage of as they look to cheer England onto world cup glory – if only we could one day say that about the football again?

All that is left to say now is come on Pompey and England, not forgetting Lewis Hamilton in the Grand Prix – make mine a double, in fact a treble.
