Plus a late Monday night kickoff after a bank holiday at home to batley probs cost us plenty too. Either way I think as a club wev been poor at promoting what we have and can't just blame the state of rugby league for this, we need to do all we can to get better crowds
Agreed, but the game needs to be perceived as attractive in the first place or, no matter how good the team only people with a deep-rooted interest in RL will attend in any case. Just look at cricket - very small crowds attending county championship games the along came one-day games, followed by 20/20; lots of TV coverage and presentation of the players as something special etc; sell-out crowds. Without that kind of exposure their game might still be in the doldrums.
And, before someone starts to say how things used to be, unfortunately that is irrelevant. The game and the clubs involved need to connect with today's audience - a Field of Dreams mentality will simply lead to further declines.
I would like to see an RLF strategy into which the Championship clubs could enter - it won't be easy nor a quick fix but a route forward needs to be devised.
