I'm going to the Wales-England game at Wrexham and the final at Salford.

Hopefully all the games will be competitive. I don't expect Wales to win any of them at this stage in their development, but I'm hoping that they will put in a good enough performance to encourage more support and to give England/France something to worry as that would be good from everybody's perspective.

I should be at England v France as I'm up in Leeds that weekend anyway. Can't make it to Salford for 5 on Sunday (well, I can, it's just getting back that's the problem)

Snap.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like I can make any of the England games, would love to have gone to Wrexham and Salford.

Should make one of the Scotland home games (more likely the Knights game), and the autumn series final (though as others have said 5pm Sunday is a right pain, especially when travelling back to Paisley...fortunately I have 4 days of holiday which need used soon...)

Live ten minutes from the UK's busiest ferry port, so bizarrely the Wales game in Lens is almost a home fixture.

notice that both england matches are scheduled on a saturday afternoon 2 30pm ko. same time as amateur rugby league is played. that rules me out, and probably a whole host of other supporters whod love to attend but cant because of the scheduling.

and we wonder why crowds are minimal when certain supporters are unable to attend. shoot ourselves in the foot comes to mind!

I'm trying to arrange a bit of a social event for my club and tying it in with the Final at Salford.

Can anyone suggest anywhere to have a pint or two near the ground? It seems like the stadium's in the middle of nowhere..

The RFL are doing cashback offers for amateur clubs like they do for the Grand Final. They are also doing an offer involving an England Fleece + ticket for a pretty good price, so if you're involved with any amateur clubs get onto the secretary etc to get onto Ray Tenant at the RFL Ray.Tennant@rfl.uk.com for more details.

Our last match is the day before the final, which is why we are aiming to go to the final, rather than the earlier games.

I think things are better than they were, with the RFL running the North West Leagues this year, there were no fixtures on Grand Final weekend at least. But I don't suppose they can rule out all Saturday's at this time of year when we have the Grand Final followed by internationals.

What they should do is not arrange fixtures in the leagues local to each fixture and actively encourage attendance from those clubs.

None. Tempted by the final but it's my mum's 65th birthday so I have to be there. As for the other games, why would I travel all the way from London to watch England play an international at Craven Park? No offence to HKR fans but that's not an international standard stadium.

Would love to go to the final, but ...

If I drive, I can't have a drink, so I've checked the trains. What is going on? I'm being offered routes via Newton le Willows, buses between Huddersfield and Leeds, nothing that gets me back to Malton before 7:00am on the Monday. I might be working on the Monday - Supply Teachers can never be sure until close to the day. Why can't things be simpler? Looks like driving is the only option, but I'm not keen on the prospect.

I think I'll decide closer to the day.

PS. forgot to say "I blame the rfl." ;)
