  1. Just booked 8 tickets for hull, most as Xmas presents that the RFL have missed out on before! The new ticketing system is much better, and will be buying 7 or 8 more for Leeds shortly. If you haven’t got yours yet, then get them. The earlier they sell out, the more it proves to the RFL that getting tickets out early is by far the best way to sell them!
  2. 2018 Squad confirmed

    Hallett gone to swinton
  3. 2018 Series v NZ

    I wonder if there is going to either be a mid season test or warm up match in London? As said previously, 2 big stadiums and 1 25500 Stadium are better than Wigan, Huddersfield and hull as it could have been. Hull have sold out there last 2 internationals, and I’ll be booking for 2 or 3 to see the world champions! 😬
  4. Lots of decisions to make. I’d go with:- widdop mcgillivary watkins percival hall brown gale graham hodgson hill burgess whitehead loughlin subs roby walmsley burgess currie/bateman
  5. Dewsbury would have the 4 burgess brothers and Danny Brough shepherding them around the Tetleys Stadium!
  6. 65k expected for Challenge Cup final

    I went yesterday as a neutral, thought the atmosphere was great and after. Or attending for a number of years, I'll certainly be back. Think the reduction in numbers is down to a few reasons. In the 80's and 90's it was THE big day out in RL, possibly alongside the London GB test as well. Now it's got to compete with the Grand Final, Magic Weekend and a trip to Catalans for Super League clubs. League 1 and championship teams also have a trip to Toulouse and now Toronto as well as the summer bash. August bank holiday doesn't help, the big gaps between rounds doesn't help, but look at the amount of Hull fans there, great effort. Moving forwards, the RFL have to think about how to sell the extra 20k seats to make it a 'must attend event' again. If I were them I'd be looking at using the amateur and professional game more, saying all ticket sales they sell in the upper tier they get to keep 75% of revenue. These clubs needn't I come and selling 50 or so tickets at £20 will quite easily make them some easy cash to invest back into the game. You could get university teams, junior teams and the pro teams all doing it. Offer all pro clubs season ticket holders the best offer, so there is more value to buying a club season ticket (could be used for internationals as well). If they can't be bothered to market the game themselves then do what others say and let the RFL sell the lower bowl and CW tickets and sell the rights to the upper tier to a company who will market and sell it out. There must be some great companies based down south that can do that. To end on a positive. I, as a Dewsbury fan, had Whitehaven fans infrobt, 3 non English speaking spaniards behind and was in touching distance of 4 French Catalan fans and about 20 Whitehaven fans. The product is fab, we just need to start thinking out of the box!

  11. Rochdale predictions

    Highlights here
  12. Rochdale predictions

    Great game and result today. Took our chances well. Standouts for me were Toby E, Brown, Glover and Sykes. Some great tries, Glovers from his own half is one of the funniest I've seen with their kick off!! Sets us up nicely for next week, just need to try and get more paying punters through the gate. Great 2nd half of the season. Well done all involved!!

  14. Who would have thought!!!! http://amp.smh.com.au/rugby-league/super-league-game-in-the-gong-more-significant-than-you-think-20170727-gxjpk7.html
  15. So, which is better? All RLWC matches on satellite, Sky Sports or BT Sport, or the main matches on BBC with the rest on Premier? Which would you choose?
