So I'm lucky enough to be staying in London on Thursday night with work which nicely coincides with the London v Leeds fixture.

 

Trouble is I'm struggling to find the enthusiasm to drag myself from Greenwich to Twickenham due to the poor form of London. Much as I want to see a Leeds win I don't want to see anything like Saturday's semi-final again from London.

 

So chastise me, entice me and help me decide between a few beers with colleagues (non rugby fans) and a nice meal or a bit of live RL in the capital...

Live RL. Everytime. Not only do you get to watch your team, but it's one more bum on a seat for the broncos...

Lilly, Jacob and Isaac, what my life is about. Although our route through life is not how it should be, I am a blessed man.

Take the non-rugby fans to the match. More money in the coffers for the Broncos.

It's your team - never miss a chance. I am in a position/location where I can't go and watch live RL very often. My last live SL game was over a year ago. I'm sure a few Hull fans bottled out of going to the SF because their form was rubbish and they thought they might get tonked.

 

London may have been shamed into actually giving a damn this Thursday. Especially those Origin/Test/NRL GF players who seem to be taking a big pay cheque for minimum contribution.

Just to be clear, it could be the last time Leeds will ever get to play at the Stoop. And 2 hard fought matches might have taken something out of Leeds that it could be a closer contest than it should be on paper.

The beer and the meal hands down
You sound as though you might well not enjoy the rugby, which in the end is the whole point
You don't owe the broncos or the rhinos anything
The drinks and meal with your friends will almost certainly be a positive experience
The broncos rhinos game almost certainly won't

Stay over til Sunday and watch Skolars .v. Oldham. That will be a great game. Personally, I just don't put money through any Super league turnstiles unless they draw one of the championship clubs or amateur clubs that I like to watch.

Broncos season ticket holders can also take a friend for £10 and there's forty percent off in the club shop! You can't say the Broncos aren't trying to drum up support!

I really enjoy rugby league
But there are other things in life that trump it and that includes an evening out eating and drinking with friends

He said 'colleagues', not friends.
On my deathbed, I doubt I'll be saying 'I really wish I'd spent more time socially with my work colleagues'. I spend 40 hours a week with them. If I'm lucky, I spend 1.5 hours at a live game of rugby league.

Just go.

My Leeds Rhinos supporting mate, who I had a drink with at Oldham .v. Crusaders on Sunday, tells me that he had already booked time off work, trains and hotels for the original date. I wonder how many more did that? Do you think the RFL or Sky should reimburse those people?

Fair point
I quite like the people I deal with in my daily life and at least I know them the drink will be decent as will be the food rather than fizzy swill and sludge in transfer laden 'pastry'

There are several things I'd rather do instead of go to a rugby league game pleasurable (unless you find yourself next to a foul mouthed drunken cretin) though that is

Take your friends to the rugby and have a beer there and meal after the game ( or a pie at half-time) !

Also, report back on kieran Dixon and Dan sarginson, heard good things about them.

Absolutely. Write to the head honcho with why you should get a refund. If they say "No" write back and ask to meet them to discuss.

I've done it twice and got a legitimate ticket refund twice plus expenses.
