SHEFFIELD UNITED'S Bramall Lane ground will host the Carnegie Challenge Cup final replay if Leeds and Warrington end all-square on Saturday.

The Yorkshire Post understands Bramall Lane, which has acted as home to 1998 Challenge Cup victors Sheffield Eagles for the first time this season and has a 32,700 capacity, is set to be the venue if that does occur on Wednesday, September 8.

Good choice for a replay, it would be a shame if we didnt have a winner on Saturday but this venue is a decent one and would be ideal.

Though the 32,700 capacity would be tested with all the hordes from Wire coming over the pennines! rolleyes.gif

For all the Wire hangers on!
More hangers on than an Indian railway carriage.

It will be big enough, due to the fact that only Leeds and Wire fans will be there,unlike Wembley.
With predictions like yours, I hope you don't do the lottery , you'll be dissapointed every week, just like you will be on Saturday tongue.gif

Good, glad this has been announced. I was quite excited when I got told about it last week biggrin.gif

The atmosphere there for a big RL game with a full house would be awesome. It's a terrific stadium.

Where were all the Wire hordes when the Rovers came to town in the earlier round?, we showed you how to really support a team

Ah yes the flat cappers did you proud that day we had a good crack with em, trashing a pub in the process!!! rolleyes.gif

As for Bramhall Lane I think its the right size for a final replay. A lot of fans will be skint so many may just watch it on BBC2 or whatever obscure channel we get to show it!!!! biggrin.gif

There won't be a replay, if it's close at the end, neither side will take the two for a draw, not with the play-offs coming up.
Super League, Championship, the play-offs, Challenge Cup, and World Cup.

A replay is highly unlikely but the RFL couldn't have chosen a better venue.

Exactly. Hopefully a sign that the RFL are keen to use Bramall Lane as a venue for big games in future - hopefully Four Nations and World Cup games. England v Aus there would be awesome. Much better than Elland Road!

with its location in the city as well if it had big games there it would make people stand up and take notice in the city, it also would have good advertising around a very sporty city (in its attitude not in its success!)

Isn't the pitch about 15 metres short though? Makes it difficult to take a test match there.

It certainly looked short when Fax played there earlier this season. Having said that, i would imagine if full it would be a great venue for RL games, as everyone is virtually on top of the pitch.
