Benal is a big place :) Where abouts are you staying/coming from?

Bar Ibensa is an option if you are around the Ibensa Square area. Busy bar.

Bonanza Square also, but as MKB says, it depends where you are staying or prepared to travel to.

Staying near Benalmadena Palace, looking for somewhere with atmosphere and some other fans, not just a grotty empty bar.

Get yourself to Bar Ibensa then. Multiple screens and cheap beer.

Get there early/ish.

There has got to be somewhere closer than that surely... there are plenty of bars along the front on the main road that will have the rugby on, i would get out there early and have a mooch around etc..... you're out of season though that's the thing, so don't expect a place packed with rugby fans..if it was the FIFA World Cup then it would be different :)

There will be somewhere closer, but I would make a day of it. The atmosphere at Bar Ibensa should be excellent. With the resort being quieter is the reason for a livelier bar. Cheap beers is another BIG bonus. ;-)

Have a fun day out at the squares.

Cocos will be the closest to Benalmadena Palace, definitely have rugby on. The Lounge Bar would have been my choice in Bonanza/Ibensa area. Looneys just past the Triton will have it as the owner is a big fan (horse racing too).

Ste-Nik, I'm looking forward to your feedback, especially on the numbers.

I was planning on Bar Ibensa for the friendly on Tuesday. But I will be eating out there anyway first.

Enjoy the game.
