I guess one problem is that the transfer market doesn't really exist anymore, with nearly all signings for the following season largely wrapped up by September or October.

Rather than discuss whether our team might splash out for a big name before the big kick-off, we're left with discussions in which the real rugby fans tell us which games they intend not to watch in the new season.

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.

And the other "real rugby fans" telling them what games they should be watching.

They usually show a Super League season review on Christmas Day on Sky Sports, what happened to that this year?


It was on New Year's Eve.

it never went away. At the elite level we still play in Feb, March, April, Sept and Oct in the cold, wet and wind!

I know. Doesn't seem right does it considering how well SL fans support the CC Grand Final day each year?
