RU world cup's starting price is £7.

Jesus! That's extortionate.

Lack of consistency and strategy for pricing is puzzling.

It is baffling that it costs more to watch Australia than it does to watch England.

They'd have to pay me a lot more than that.

Why would Saints be setting ticket prices? It's a RLWC event so surely tickets are set by them.

In rugby league, anything could be the case!  We have different rules in different countries; players swapping national allegiences; who is to say who is setting ticket prices? ;)

 

You're probably right.  I've no idea.  But I would imagine the fact that Australia is one of the teams involved has something to do with the higher cost of tickets for the match at Langtree Park.  However, that might be wrong also.  I haven't checked the cost of tickets for other matches in which Australia is involved.

There aren't any others really. The other Australia matches are the opener at Cardiff and the match against Ireland in Ireland. I guess they're banking on the fact that it's the only real opportunity for fans in the North to watch Australia, but IMO they've stuffed up by scheduling the match on the same day as England vs Ireland. They should have had the Australia match on the Friday night, with France vs NZ in the late Saturday slot.

 

Still, the tickets aren't that expensive, it's only £10 to stand behind the posts. But it doesn't look like sales are going well for that match, you can still buy 20 tickets together in the cheapest seating sections.

It is the best RL players on the planet playing in RL's number one flagship competition. There won't be many Saints fans sat in the £40 areas but there may be Aussie tour parties, casual fans and people who may want to be at an event.

I think DT has it the nail on the head and EH's final point about a severe lack of ticket sales, even in the cheapest seating sections highlights the issues with the 'seating' pricing of the game at Langtree Park. It is frankly barking the Australia vs Fiji game costs more than the England match playing on the same day.

Italy's World Cup side, captained by Anthony Minichiello and featuring the likes of Craig Gower, Terry Campese, Mark Minichiello, Anthony Laffranchi and Aidan Guerra, is set to play a warm-up match against hosts England at Salford. The match, which will be played a week before the tournament opener at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium, will give the Italian players a rare match together before they take on Wales in the October 26 double header, which will be headlined by England's clash with Australia. Meanwhile, England will prepare for the tournament with a training camp in South Africa.

Just been watching the Sunday morning footy show here in Sydney; they had a short interview with Steve McNamara talking up the Burgess boys for the RLWC + a long-ish segment talking to two of the Jillaroos (Australian Women's RL team) about the upcoming Women's RLWC.

 

So a bit of publicity for the RLWC cups on Channel 9. Wonders will never cease!

So warm up games that appear to be on the cards include:

  • France v USA in Toulouse (Confirmed)
  • USA v Canada (3 Test Series - Confirmed)
  • England v Italy in Salford
  • New Zealand v Cook Island
  • Fiji v PNG
  • Fiji v Tonga
  • Australian PM XIII v PNG Select XIII in PNG (Confirme)

Wonder who the likes of Ireland, Scotland and Wales will look to take on as warm up opponents?

Rumour has it England will not stray too far from their training camp for warm up game.... about 400 yards if the students are to be believed.

I hope the SARL take the chance or are allowed a bit of interaction with the England set up this time around.

Salford! No disrespect but have they sorted out the public transport and parking issues yet? I'm hoping to attend the Scotland v USA game but I'm not committing to buying the tickets until the parking issues have been sorted.

It would make sense to play the game well away from any venues hosting games in the World Cup itself. So the Loughborough/Coventry area would be a good idea in my opinion.

Yeah I agree, I think staging it at Salford could really impact the Scotland v USA crowd they are trying to sell tickets for.

I should have mentioned that Sterlo asked the two Jillaroos why Tonga, Samoa and Russia had pulled out of the Women's RLWC, and they replied "funding issues", which is a shame.

I assume that's why Russia and Jamaica pulled out of the Armed Forces RLWC
