If you could pick four stands to make up your dream stadium, which would they be?

I think you would have to include Salfords North Stand, and Leeds new West Stand as the 2 end stands, and The old Douglas Stand from Central Park on one side with the North(?) stand at the Halliwell Jones.

Any one got other ideas?

Although I have used a stand that has been demolished, remember this is a dream Ground.

The KC stadium is superb architectually inside, but I couldn't include it here.

Eddington end kop as away end with Leeds new west stand at other end wire's standing stand on one side for home support and the kc west stand for the posh seats
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Old Central Park Kop at one end. Current Knowlsey Rd Kop at the other, Touchline terrace stand at Wire and the South Stand at Leeds on't other touchline

I'm not really a fan of seats wink.gif

Imagine the atmosphere in such a ground with 40k on.....

One of the end stands has to be the double decker from the Watersheddings.

Huddersfield, but with a single tier behind the other goal.

Fantastic ground - although I accept a bit of terracing would be nice.

Stick a roof on Odsal to keep the rain out and noise in and you will have a brilliant ground -and that's a fact!

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

It's OK if you have 40/40 vision from the the hill at Rooley Lane end.
