Does anyone feel they're being ripped off by the pro clubs by their admission charges ? and how do East Leeds followers feel about having to pay 18 quid by Leigh to watch their game ? .

To be honest i think the rules need relaxing when playing a Championship 1 club at home, i have great sympathy for West Hull in this instance. There's a thread about Egremont having 1480 paying adults for their game with Wath Brow which is fantastic, i cant imagine North Wales bringing more than 100 fans to West Hulls ground, they could easily accomodate that where they are. The RFL need to be a little more pragmatic about the situation, i'm sure Egremont dont have to jump through as many hoops to accomodate Wath Brom

 

I couldn't agree with you more. You wouldn't believe the amount of work Siddal have put in to stage the game at Huddersfield YMCA, it's been a full time job. The red tape etc is unbelievable. I just hope it's worth it & we get a bumper crowd there on Sunday.

We played at Leigh few years back and think the admission prices were around the £12 mark. £18 pound seems very steep

Can Leigh reduce the price without agreement from the club they are playing. Obviously as some of the gate money is shared in the cup it doesn't just affect the home side. Seem to remember saints having to get an agreement from the club they were playing to reduce the prices.

Did you enquire about playing at the shay fri evening....or even Old Crossleyans ?

Rammo23, as far as I know there is only one coach from the official supporters club, but Warrington is less than an hour from Wrexham and easy enough by train. We average 700 at home and would have taken 100 to Hull. I expect we will have more than 200 at Wilderspool. I won't be there. I only ever miss Crusaders games when Eccles are playing and Eccles are at home to Hunslet Warriors today. Have a great day. The Crusaders fans a good bunch. Hope West Hull do the amateur game proud but I obviously want Crusaders to progress and, hopefully get Salford in the next round.
