Its a great draw, Catalan get decent crowds at every game, cup or league, and York get half the gate!

 

I'm buzzing!

Agree entirely Gav. That's the way I see it.

Double edged sword this one. I agree with Gav about the proceeds as Catalans get good crowds down there - as for the Knights fans etc, it'll be expensive to do the trip.

 

What's the prospects for Radio York covering the game Andy?

don't think the half gate rule doesn't apply for French games


Then the RFL will have to compensate. York will get a good payout ontop of the prize money, and I can't see it being up to the club to fork out for travel & accomodation. I think its a decent draw tbh

Great weekend away. I did it last year for Sheffield Eagles. Jet 2 to Barca , hire car, hard drive up to Perp, few beers around the stadium and a cheap hotel. Away promptly back to Barca for the return flight . Back in England for 4pm Sunday.
Fantastic ground and supporters - Perpignan quite a charming town.
Go for it and enjoy it.

 

Getting tempted to do it now - can you remember which Hotel you stayed at??

 

Cheers

From the clubs point of view,i would think its a great draw.From a fans point of view (well mine anyway),think its a bloody nightmare.I cant justify forking out all that money to go to the south of France,for what would be a return trip.As much as i would love to go to the game,simply cant afford it.Just hope Andy acko and radio york will be there.

In the meantime onto more important things.Hunslet away this sunday.17 players fully focused on getting that first away league  win under our belt.Its about time we put one over the Hawks.

Shades - been racking our brains - it was Hotel Aragon. Found it on late rooms. Nothing special but did the job. Beware taxis aren't prevalent in Perpignan and the ground is about 1.5 miles from centre of town near the airport. You need to allow good time for a taxi if you book one. Aragon is central . Near the Castillet and a good part of town for socialising. Hic !

Thanks for that - think we may well go for it today, but had a look round & might do Stanstead to Perpignan

flights Friday/Sunday - bit of driving this end, but then no driving etc from Barcelona airport etc.

Press today says the game is on the Saturday - just need to sort kick off time.

After todats game are the players going to pay for the supporters to go to the next away game, like they said they would do after the Keighley game?. :rolleyes: even then I would not go Leeds was too far to watch that rubbish never mind France. :angry:
