Taking the ball, and going home

Now that France is out of the World Cup, the railroad doesn't go there anymore:

A strike by French rail unions could play havoc with fans desperate to get to the rugby World Cup final on Saturday.

A major stoppage will be held across France on Thursday and Friday over planned changes to retirement schemes but several unions have called for the strike to continue Saturday.

The industrial action could affect the line which serves the Stade de France in the north of the city where the final will kick off at 1900GMT between England and South Africa.
