Leave the challenge cup final as it is but start the comp later and hav fewer weeks between rounds every 3 weeks leading up to final. Also I would seriously look at holding a double header for the semi as a sport we need bigger events and occasions and the way crowds are In the challenge cup this could really help the cup to get going again venues such as elland road, ethihad, brammel lane ect be a great occasion.
Leave the magic were its at in terms of the weekend it's played and would leave it at ethihad but for next year would look at playing it at st james that would be brilliant or emeriates with a much smaller capacity but awesome venue could be an option rather then wembley were people would already be going to Challenge cup final. I'd also scrap all rugby fixtures that weekend and give everyone an oppitunity to go. Would look at getting the northern rail cup going again and play the final on the Sunday as the last game again gives championship clubs and fans an oppitunity to play on the big stage and again could add a few thousand the capacity why not?. The magic weekend is brilliant needs to stay but we need to fill the ground for both days and playing northern
Rail cup there would be another plus.
Why has there been no word from the rfl regarding this fixture just 1 of a number of things how this game is been run poorly.
Admittedly not everyone was a huge fan of the fixture but it served a good purpose and I personally saw a lot of potential in it. On the back of a great World Cup when's the nxt England fixtures in this country?. It's not good enough the exiles fixture should defiantly of carried on
