Not much discussion on the forums, very little publicity from the Rugby League. No sponsorship of the competition and the match played after the cup final when all the Wembley officials will be wanting to get home for tea. The RL will not be wanting a Batley/Dewsbury final so the teams will have to put that bit extra effort in to get there. I will probably be making the trip to Wembley again (to participate in Batley Bulldogs sponsored walk from Bronco,s to Wembley in aid of breast cancer research).
So it is up to the club's to sell the competition and if the same enthusiasm is shown as it is for the Blackpool Bash then I cannot see the competition lasting very long.
