RU makes money as everything that comes through its turnstiles at Twickers/ Cardiff/ Murrayfield etc. goes straight into their pocket and as such- no renting of grounds/ etc.

Any way to make the reality of a National RL ground/ HQ should be explored as the Long Term benefits are wholly in the best interests of the entire game from juniors upwards!

If you own the bricks and mortar yes that does work, if you are getting a reduced rent etc then no that doesnt work like that as you are the ones paying in (granted a reduced amount) unto the pockets of Leeds United Football Club etc.. the RFU owns Twickenham, WRU Cardiff and SRU Murrayfield if memory serves..

The problem is the RFL has little say in the scheduling of CC rounds past Round 4 because of the BBC. If they're showing football, golf, tennis, F1 or whatever, then the RL will just have to wait.

The double header idea for the cup is a good one though, much better than the Magic weekend in fact. 2 games on the one day is do-able. 3 or 4 is just overkill.

Ah! I didn't realise that about the Challenge Cup rounds. But if it's possible I think it would be good have the quarter-finals as double-headers.
