Should be a good crowd and at least we will get a shared gate so not a great loss but could have been a lot better

dont see what the problem is..if there's a gate of lets say 8,000 then thats what we would get a share of....i'm assuming workington had a share of the 1200 or so on sun..........regardless of this, its the cup...luck of the draw...bring 'em on

Its the first round of the cup for super league teams, and season tickets give you free entry to the first round your team is involved in i believe.

Agreed, as long as we get a good turn out i'm not in the least bit bothered whether they only go to one game a year or all of them. It's their choice and they don't get to ride the Rovers rollercoaster, their loss.

A bit like the 4000 headingley fans was my point, you dont see them at home game against likes of rochdale or workington, if you have a family why not bring them all to game.

touched a nerve or not i have a valid point about glory game hunters

Thats his point though snake - the financial burden of taking all the family to a game may wwell be too much for some families so they have to budget when/how many games the family can afford. Rochdale and/or Workington would probably not be at the top of the list - a cup run against high profile opposition and a possible tilt at the play-offs may well be priority games because they are much more attractive.

"Glory Hunters" or not, the more that go to Warrington = a bigger share out for Rovers!!! Bring em on!!

Being one who has been on his ###### financially, I can empathise with Kirkie's comments, though I do accept your notion that it would have been bloody nice to see a few of all those who went to Headingly in 07, make a more regular appearance at Post Office Road. A crowd of 2k ave would make the world of difference to the budget!

Financially it is a good draw for us and a chance for the players to go there and show that we are better than the performance we put up against them last year when we didn't really compete.

I thought we did compete, i thought the first 20-25 mins we were the better team, we were in the lead and they were on the ropes, they werent threatening and then the blakeway pass that got intercepted killed all the good work, second half class showed but had they not got that interception it might have been a diferent scoreline, we might not have won, but the scoreline may have been closer
