Heard a rumour St. Helens want £3000 for the tie to play played at langtree park! Not sure if there is any truth in that but seems a bit steep! Should let them play for nothing as it is a one off game!

I'd suggest that the figure quoted is exactly a rumour. Saints hosted the St.Helens Cup final last September and didn't charge anything other than covering the costs of staging the event as far as i'm aware, struggle to see why they would change that stance for this game.

Oldham switched their Chall Cup tie to Langtree last season and cited "we are not allowed to play at Oldham" as the reason ......... if you have ever been to The Whitebank Stadium :rolleyes: you would understand this however .........

I must admit I though the figure seemed a bit steep and unfair, but with the current climate as it is, it wouldn't surprise me if they wanted a few quid for the use. I know Liverpool U'21s play there and I'm dam sure it won't be for nothing. Good luck to black brook either way, I'm sure they will do the amature game proud and give them a tough game.

Have all the grounds been decided on to play the Challenge Cup games, noticed a few amateur clubs drawn at home?

Why not play at home? Is there a reason why Ince have given up home advantage at Pinfold St? I'm sure Ince could have catered for whoever turn up?

From what I have been told grounds have to pass RFL inspection and have to have a stand/seating area. I think

Is Pinfold St as good as Esher Rugger club's ground?

Pinfold St does not meet the RFL criteria, but it is frustrating trying to overcome all the hurdles along the way to stage this game in Wigan.

Thanks for the reply, I can imagine, I've never been to the RU ground, was Orrell not an option where Wigan academy play?

That option was discussed and Wigan Warriors were very helpful and accomodating. Unfortunately due to other fixtures and other commitments Sunday was considered the best option and Orrell cannot be used due to the Warriors fixture.
