2 of my 3 wishes came true!
London Skolars v North Wales Crusaders at Friday Night Lights (order plenty of beer and prepare for the invasion of Hawaiian shirt-wearing Welsh folk!)
South Wales Scorpions v North Wales Crusaders (10th May) - hopefully to be played at Cardiff Arms Park - TBC.
I also think Gatehead Thunder should have arranged a Friday Northern Lights game on the Friday before Magic Weekend - it would seem to be a clear financial winner for Thunder.
What I don't understand is why there are League 1 games (and probably Championship games) on the same weekend as the Magic Weekend in Newcastle. I'd love to go to St James Park but with Crusaders playing on Sunday I have to assess whether it is do-able - travelling time and costs are major considerations.
Agree on all points - beer, I really enjoyed seeing Skolars/Scorps at CAP - great if you two play there, great idea re Gateshead and yes silly about the Sunday post GF match.
On the last point I think RL fans differ from other sports in that on the whole we are happy to watch other teams than our own. Having matches the day after the GF will affect attendance.
