Specsavers just announced as a sponsor. Good national brand that everyone has heard of. Hopefully they might add a piece on their tv adverts about being a sponsor.

I saw that and wasn't sure if it was a joke or not! The jokes write themselves!

(Incidentally, I'm happy to see another major brand attached. I just hope they sponsor the referee kit)

Very clever. Best one so far. Not sure the refs will be too happy though.

On a side note just got my 1st lot of tickets for both games at Hull KR, only ordered them last week. Still waiting for final tickets ordered last year, but the RFL seem to be good at getting tickets out so all is good. Not long left now. Anyone buying any tickets today? Be good to see how many people are still buying and what for!

Actually, judging from the picture that was tweeted, I imagine they'll be the video ref sponsor BU_2jO4CUAlt_ho.jpg

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but can anyone explain what a DANCE GUEST is, and why it's got something to do with buying a ticket?  It's for the Haliwell Jones Gorup match.

I notice that there are codes for friends and family of those involved with the choirs and dance groups so assume this is for that?

So you'll be surrounded by people with no interest in the rugby, cheering the  dancers on at half time?  I can live with that

But they will come and they paid and they may be converted to regular supporters. I see no down side to it.
