But any score would produce the same miserable witterings from the terrible trio of Hadfield, Irvine and Wilson.


I'm quite looking forward to it actually...

Yes, it was a very cleverly worded press release that!

I actually quite like rugby league. So having a game on terrestial TV in November with some exciting players like Bosc and Watkins played in front of a full house seems like happy days to me!

Come on England!

CORRECT however given the fact that RL fans on the whole prefer to stand then only 500 left could be good news.How many standing places have been sold?On the subject of RFL press releases himler would be proud of them:( 99% are a pile of tosh and treat the RL public as is if they were idiots.CM

The good news is that there are only 500 seats remaining. The bad news is that there are only 500 seats in the stadium to start with.

The "500 left" was to do with the 499 capacity car park.

Sadly, the car park attendant can't make it either.

Read via twitter Sean McGuire really slating this game and the RFL.

Its a funny thing but I don't recall earth shaking events whilst he was involved in RL?

I think he is full of shot.

No, it wasn't.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.
