    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    Yesterday felt like an ‘event’. I took 2 non rugby girls (10 and 15 years old), don’t think they understood the rugby, but loved the build up, the remembrance ceremony, the anthems, Haka, fireworks, free flags, dust ups, drum and Mexican wave. Went back home saying they loved it. If they had come to Hull (as I did) there is no way I would have got them to another match
  2. England have ultimately beaten NZ whilst we were missing a number of first teamers. A number of players have moved up the pecking order (some without playing) and a number have moved down. Positives:- Mackinson proved to be international class Thompson fitted in really well, looked like he’d played 20 tests Sam Tomkins took his chances and must be considered Jonny Lomax, proved a good inclusion, made very few mistakes and worked well on attack Jake Connor, great partnership on the left wing, must be nailed down for a centre spot whitehead and Bateman. Nailed down both 2nd row spots for the next few years Negatives O’Loughlin, must be time for him to call it a day Percival, Bennett really can’t fancy him if he couldn’t get a game ahead of Gildart Milner, no impact in either game Myler, tried his hardest, tackled well, but not good enough for this level If we had all fit to face the Aussies next year my team would be:- Lomax Mackinson Connor Watkins Hall Widdop Tomkins T Burgess Hodgson Graham Whitehead Bateman S Burgess subs G Burgess Hill / Walmsley Thompson Clark / Roby

    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    680 left on sale 30 mins ago. If that is all they are going to sell they should be saying less than 1000 left! If they are going to open the upper tier they should do it now! £10 adults £5 concessions.
  4. On a lot of club twitter feeds
  5. Greenwood and Myler in for Tomkins (broken hand) and Burgess (suspended). I’d like to see Ratchford come in at full back and Lomax to move up to half back.

    @englandrl are actually doing some really good stuff on Twitter. Just a few months too late. It does feel as though the RFL can only sell one thing at a time.

    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    @englandrl on Twitter just tweeted over 25,000 sold for Sunday with 1,000 sold this morning already. If we can do 1,000 every day we’ll be over the 30,000 mark. I’d put all the upper tier East stand tickets at £10 adults, £5 concessions.

    Most frustrating thing is we actually got the tickets on sale nearly a year in advance, rather than the Normal 3 months. Thought a lot more would of been sold with this much lead in time

    What would be a ‘good’ crowd at Anfield, and what what be the number for a ‘poor crowd’. I’m thinking, with the probable costs involved anything under 25k is a poor crowd, with anything over 30k at this stage being considered a good crowd. However, with the RFL doing something right for once and getting ticket sales going nearly 12 months in advance, 35k should have been the minimum they were looking for at this stage. I think we’ll be looking at 26k for Sunday at Anfield, and with a defeat, and decider they may get close to selling out Elland road. That would give us 18k + 26k + 37k = 81k which is 10k short of where we should have been before a ball was kicked.

    Just bought 5 tickets for Elland Road, seems to be selling well. Wish they would put ‘sold out on the graphic though and open up some more areas. There are 5 or 6 more areas with only odd seats, it would look so much better to have these as ‘sold out’ on the screen.

    Team For Second Test

    G Burgess must be a doubt for next week after coming off injured. Who replaces him?
  14. Really enjoyed the match. Having been to all the England matches in Hull over the last decade I thought the atmosphere was really good. Some great performances today. 8 Elland road tickets being bought tomorrow (not bothered how many others are there). I don’t go there to watch the crowd.
