We need to stop selling a game and sell an event. If I go it won't particularly be for the rugby on display, it will be for an excuse to go for a night out with the lads with some entertainment mixed in.
That isn't going to happen in Leigh, Wigan etc....
For me it should be at Wembley, get a decent curtain raiser (Scotland vs Ireland?) and make a day of it. I couldn't sell a ticket to this game if it was at a club's home ground, but could easily get a crowd for Wembley.
Announce it now, big up the French team, get it at Wembley with tickets between £20 and £60, and I'll be there along with 40k others.
We can't go backwards
