This event is going to get bigger and better year on year.


Agree and I'll be there again this year although at 15 for an adult it's a 50% price increase on what I paid last year.

That said the Bradford Bulls are there, so at least I can participate in the shouting this year.

Just short of 4000 in 2008, 6000 there last year and I think they could well be 8000+ this year.

It's only a matter of time before Sky Sports pick this wonderful event up.

Agree.

It looks like the Rugby League's fatest man sprint will be once again one of the highlights of a fun evening.

The Fastest Man Sprint will again be centre stage at this year's Carnegie Floodlit 9s

The world class athletes of Rugby League will be put to the test on Wednesday August 25 at Headingley Carnegie Stadium in Leeds.

All those who witnessed last year's thrilling cavalcade of speedsters as they swept the length of the Headingley pitch will expect a similar treat this August.

Despite the presence of Kevin Penny of Warrington Wolves and Peter Fox of Hull Kingston Rovers and England it was the Leeds Rhinos teenage prodigy Jamel Chisholm who took the honours and in so doing secured the special trophy and winner's prize money.

Event Director Neal Coupland said: "The aim is to find rugby league's fastest player and as 2009 illustrates it will not necessarily be a Super League or International star. Teams taking part in the 9s will no doubt again be holding internal sprints in order to identify their fastest player. The sprint on Nines Night is a thrilling spectacle and adds greatly to the occasion."

Event Co-director Lionel Hurst added: "The sprint concept is very topical as Rugby League in the Southern Hemisphere is also making plans to find its fastest player. No doubt at some point there will be a world challenge to decide the global outcome."

We'll have to meet up for a beer or two.

Should be a big crowd there and for those not going I'll post score updates on here again just like last year.

Group B looks interesting with Warrington playing St Helens.

Group C means a third Bradford vs Castleford game this season of which I'm sure we'll make it 2-1.

It'll be a nice little tonic before Wembley on the Saturday.

Maybe we can win something after all this season.

Hull FC don't seem to be taking the defence of their trophy too seriously, very young squad with only three players who have first team experience and very little at that.

Squad: J Briscoe, Tuffour, Donkin, Swales, Williams, Smith, Pearce, Green, Crooks, Norris, Morris, Lazenby, Howlett.

The Bulls have named a strong lineup, who else apart from the above have named their teams ?

I won't have be able to post updates on here due to commentary duty, but I will put updates on my Twitter/Facebook.

What I will do, is text Rob the half-time, full-time scores and final placings etc so he can keep you all up to date with events at Headingley for those who can't make it.

Looking forward to seeing who wins that. In a recent U18's game a young winger called Danny Brotherton who's just signed a pro contract with Saints actually turned & caught Chisholm in a foot race, and this week Saints have enterd Brotherton into the fastest man race.
