NORTHWICH are just 80 minutes from Twickenham. They won their EDF Energy Senior Vase tie at Stratford on Saturday and have been drawn at home to Stroud in the semi-final on March 24.
Now the Northwich committee are making plans to cope with a big attendance and to cash in on their side's incredible success.
They won a dramatic game at Stratford-upon-Avon by a single point.
Chairman Sam Naylor said: 'It was tremendous. They had the best pack we have come up against this season and at one point it looked to be going away from us.
'There were some big celebrations afterwards. I've been with the club nearly 40 years and I don't know if it has ever been better than this.'
Northwich, who have won £1,500 in prize money, are hoping to have a mobile grandstand and a marquee for corporate entertainment in place for the Stroud game and Naylor is appealing for local business to contact him on 0777 261 1274 if they wish to be involved.
Stroud, fifth in Western Counties North, have been to Twickenham before - they were beaten finalists in the 1998 Intermediate Cup.
