I've heard some talk (on Twitter actually) about Widnes fans boycotting this match. Does anyone know what this is all about?

Possibly still smarting after Blackpool 2010.
I'm afraid I won't have helped matters by blasting Queen's "We are the champions" out of the car stereo (all windows down) as we passed a number of Widnes fans trudging their way back to the car park.

Wasn't the great Henry Oulton signed from Sandal RUFC?

The stadium was capacity was increased for the day by Kirklees Council. This enabling a bigger attendance. It is correct that the ground holds short of 4000, as the new terrace can't be included unless it is covered.

Thanks for the confirmation, NR. Always good to know middle age hasn't killed too many memory cells.
Out of interest, what was the basis of the temporary increase in capacity?
I would assume the application would have had to be submitted well in advance of the good weather forecast. Were any contingency plans (for wet weather) required?

It won't be a full house and they do attract some dodgy fans...

The massive bonus for us all is that I will be able to attend this time - relief all round.


Well, that's at least one dodgy fan attending! :tongue:

Did KN say that the special voucher one in the season ticket could be used today for a free beer or did I dream it?
