I must admit that I have a strange feeling coming over me knowing there are no tickets to sell for this game. So what must it be for the likes of those "I'm not going next week after this debacle" or "can you pay on the day" or "who wants to watch Eng v some part-time Irishmen" or "there will be no-one there the RLF is rubbish".

 

LOL. What are all these people going to talk about this week? One thing is it should have dramatic knock on effect for the Fiji game at the KC and hopefully the Aus-Fiji game at Saints.

Come on! You underestimate us. There's loads of stuff:

Kath Hetherington wasn't smiling enough.
It should have been played in London or Gillingham.
There should be P&R for this game.
Ray French has a good ten years left in him.
It's not close enough to the M62.
It's not proper Guinness.
How does he qualify for Ireland?
Does your missus liking Riverdance qualify you to play for Ireland?
The Irish anthem is miles better than ours
Gareth Hock would have made a huge difference.
The Huddrrsfield public don't turn out to watch rugby league
This is Danny Brough's home ground - he knows every blade of grass - he should be here.
The ref once flew Ryanair so is totally biased against England.

Loads more. We'll have a field day....!!

It would be nice to see each England game from here on sell out a while in advance. Can only help the sales of Wembley & non - England games.

I'm guilty of waiting too long for other people to decide what they are doing for this game, finished up sold out before I got a ticket.

 

Lesson learned for the future, you can't expect to just walk up for internationals in this country anymore.

 

In a backhanded way I am pleased I couldn't get a ticket.

Whilst it is unfortunate for any individual who hasn't got a ticket, it is great for the sport that people are missing out. I was talking to a number of people last Monday who were complaining that they couldn't get all the tickets they wanted.

We need to move from a pay on the day culture to buy in advance culture for the benefit of the game. These sell-outs will only help us achieve that. You'd hope that the good folk of Hull will get out to purchase the final tickets for the England v Fiji match and the PNG v Samoa games in the city.

The Samoa match was surely always more of a draw than France, and after yesterday's matches, one you'd be daft to miss, and with yesterday's crowds, one you know you might miss, if you leave it to pay on the gate.

I rang the Stadium last week and was told:

 - the RLWC is releasing the tickets and the ground only sells the tickets that are being released.

- there were some single-seat tickets available, but not paired ones where friends or family could sit together.

 

 

 I don't know, but maybe some more tickets will be released  closer to the game if coproprate hospitality etc is not fully subscribed.

Ah (hali)but, he's having a whale if a time. Just hope he stays injury free and doesn't need to be looked at by the team sturgeon.

He'll no doubt try to worm his way out of it by acting all koi, as we perch on the edge of the Ireland game.

Coach Steve Mackeralnamara says he harbours no grudges against the journalists who tried to catch him out at his last press conferene. "Most of them talk pollock anyway. Stingray French never grilled me like that."

When asked how will England cope with Sam Burgess being banned for the Ireland game McNamara siad "Cod knows what I'll do, I'll have to perhaps stickleback in the front row"

When asked why he didn't include in prawn stand off Danny Brough in his World Cup squad Mackeralnamara replied "I rang him and I had him on the line but he somehow slipped through the net. Maybe it was an act of cod." He wouldn't be drawn on the debate of wether the centres were now living off scraps.....
