It's a absolute disgrace the England v Italy game isn't on telly in my opinion ... BBC talk the talk about their commitment to the WC , yet they're ignoring most of the games , and have missed a golden opportunity to trail and promote the tournament by getting hold of this game ( unwanted by Sky ) and showing it ... Here's what's coming up viewers . Have a taster !! Why not shove it on bbc 3 , or even bbc 2 ? You know what's on bbc 2 at the time of the match ? A film from 1937 ... And I wonder why premier haven't tried to take it on , as the WC is their baby ? Sky can show wall to wall Union though but not this , which is also disgraceful . If England union team was playing a warm up I'm sure they'd fit it in somewhere . Either way it should be somewhere without doubt , one week before a WC in your own country ... Now whether we should be playing the game at all 7 days before we play Oz , with a limited pool of talent is another story !

And the deluded ones down the road thought we would fail to reach the 2000 figure.....


It must be killing them seeing how many tickets have been sold, lovely eh.

It's says in the Sun that the game is on sky sports 1 at 4.30 but when you look at the planner there's no mention.
When I was looking on text I realised that (other than the opening game) England's group games are kicking off at a similar time to the England rugby union internationals! What sort of lunatic would put games which are on terrestrial TV against another game that part of your target audience are guaranteed to watch.
How is that helping promote RL in this country?!

so whats that 9000+ sold for the tonga game and just under 9000 for the italy game?

 

that is awesome if so! sounds like its going to be a sell out for both games and a cracking atmosphere to suit!

The tickets that they are referring to are for the Covered Popularside but I think there is still tickets for the open town end of the ground terracing, although how they can keep them apart I don't know!!!

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
