Looks like we may be playing Leigh in cup on Friday night seeing that Swinton may have bagged the Sunday to play their game against Keighley. There's a wedding at the venue on the Saturday so that's out. Travelling over there on M62 on a Friday night is a joke. IMO I think Swinton could have kicked off at 1pm on Sunday and we follow them with a 5 /6 pm kick off. The rovers do not want to play Friday night and Craig Poskitt as confirmed that nothing as yet as been finalised

Leigh must have loads of money if they are prepared to play on a Friday night

Do Swinton get first choice then ?

IMO it's mind games, less away fans travelling on a Friday night, more of theirs to shout the team on. Leigh have now said they will not allow 2 games to be played there on their ground in one day, err they had Grand Final there last year with 3 games played

It has nothing to do with Swinton when our game against you will be played.

 

Should there ever be a fixture clash Swinton would play at Sedgeley Park.

 

We will find out soon enough imo.

From memory since we first played Leigh at LSV I don't think we have ever played them on a Sunday.
09 Thursday (tv)
10 Wednesday
11 Thursday (tv)
12 Friday
13 Saturday
14 perhaps it will be this year.

Leigh fans might be optimistic about the future but the LSV management can't be, as they clearly weren't expecting them to be having a game this weekend...

I think it is because Leigh's players want to play the game on a Friday as do the coaching staff.

Apparently a small function is booked for Sunday and the 400 or so Swinton fans won't impact that as much as 2500 fans if Leigh and Fev play. Why the LSV is booking functions for a rugby Sunday is beyond me though. Still if your Craig feels its a good idea to fire everyone up by tweeting about it thats up to him.

I doubt we would want to give up home advantage by playing somewhere else so it looks like it might be Friday after all.

......do Championship teams have fixtures on Easter Monday?

No they've got Easter Monday off, but what's that got to do with CC round??

Just trying to find a date Featherstone would be happy with.  If no one wants to play Fri/Sat/Sun, The RFL could tell us to play it whenever couldn't they.  I thought you might be intelligent enough to work out from looking at the thread and the ongoing 'when wil it be played?' question that it would be obvious why I tongue in cheek mentioned Easter monday :tease:
