What ever anyone says its good pubicity
People who didnt know Rugby League heard about it
Saw the game or a clip of it
This made them aware of Rugby League
They saw a packed Old Trafford
Once people are aware of you, even if its for the wrong reason you then have an oppertunity to create a good impression
If you think of Cantona or even people on relatily shows, do you think he is remebered for that incident or that people remeber One Direction were on XFactor ?
You have to use all publicty to your favour
