Been on the Globes facebook page, they post daily the live sport they are showing.

We watched the Scotland game the other day in the Globe - they have it on with commentary on 4 screens - they use one area for the RLWC and are showing every game.

Well worth watching the games there is in Edinburgh

 

Edit: just to add - this was on live despite Arsenal v Chelsea also on the big screens, so football shouldn't affect the RLWC.

has there been that much media coverage in bonny scotland?

 Coverage has been poor up here from what are reckoned to be the main papers. The Scottish Sun and Daily Record. Glasgow Herald has suprisingly provided excellent reports. Scottish Daily Mail put us in with the rah rahs stating a few of the Scotland team could switch!

Looks like ticket sales have really picked up for this.

 

The only remaining stand had sold only 220 tickets on Weds, now it sits at over 1k.

Would be awesome if this could sell out.

That stand is a terrace DaveT and today the club have announced that there will be no walk up tickets available so it looks like a larger crowd than on Tuesday. All the seats were sold a few weeks ago.

Thanks Dave, will be there sunday to watch the game.

 

Great news about the ticket sales. a bit dissapointed we didn't get one game on home soil like France, Wales and Ireland, but a big thank you goes  to Workington and the towns people for their brilliant support.

I'm heading down to Workington on Sunday, but will probably be in there next Thursday for the USA game. The barmaid is an Aussie who is really into her RL so that helps!

Network Rail decided to do some maintenance work on the Carlisle - Barrow line on Sunday and cancelled all the trains.

Radio Cumbria tonight reported less thsn 1000 tickets available, so it looks like at least 8,700, and as Keith has posted the club expect the game to sell out

Really looking forward to covering this game later today.

The four plus hour journey on Tuesday/Wednesday was certainly worth it.

What a ripper of a game.

Hard to call, this one. Italy looked very good at times against Wales but they also looked vulnerable. A lot will depend on how Scotland have recovered but if they put in a performance like the one against Tonga then they've a chance.
