A really enjoyable game. a pity there weren't more people there.

 

There were plenty of Leythers in the pubs in Halifax before and after the game.....

IMO they need to take the NRC on the road outside the heartlands. I'm sure this game would have got just as many fans played at Oxford, MK etc. I think you might actually get MORE fans of heartland clubs going, treating it as a weekend out. Halifax (or anywhere else in the heartlands) doesnt cut the mustard. In fact you could repeat this argument for next weeks SF

I think these are good ideas as long as the dates,kickoff times and stadiums are organised 6 months in advance.
Maybe all champ clubs should be asked to try and sell 100 tickets each plus the rfl/clubs could put subsidised coach travel on for those that buy tickets from the club

Looks like eagles have done our trick. Too consistent for their own good and burn out come the business end of the season.

 

You have to wonder how much the Challenge Cup has taken out of them.  Fev weren't the same team last season after playing Wigan.  I must admit I was shocked by the result, I thought Eagles were unstoppable.
