  1. I would suggest it is viewing figures for the RLWC in October and November which will govern if we can get better deals from broadcasters in the future. Not the viewing figures from a one off friendly. Showing the Samoa game on the BBC and raising awareness of the World Cup may have helped us achieve far better viewing figures come November when it really matters.
  2. I got one of our group who is more tech savvy than me to ring ticketek using a skype connection over the internet.
  3. That's what we have been led to believe.
  4. We are working on the theory of us losing the 1st game, winning the next 2, with our 1/4 final back in Melbourne and hopefully a semi final in Auckland. Pretty sure Australia are nailed on for a Darwin 1/4.
  5. The only game we've bought for at the minute is the Perth double header. We had a similar problem in that we were being offered too high up in the stand. We ended up ringing to get front row in the upper tier.
  6. We're having the same discussion. 12 of us are going. I'm not too keen on those seats in the corner either. We're deciding this weekend over a beer what to do.
  7. Yeah no problem. 5 of us dressed in rugby gear of some sort.
  8. Yeah you can have 1 as I may end up with another 2 spares. We will be in Wigan Central at 1 or u can call round now.
  9. I have 2 spare tickets for the game if anyone's interested. Popular side terrace. £12. We're driving up from Wigan this afternoon.
  10. 1. Yes, we're all sitting together. 2&3. 4 of the group have booked accommodation for Liverpool as they're from Yorkshire, the rest of us are on the train from Wigan. 4. Waiting until today would have saved us £16 per ticket, admittedly dropping from Cat A to Cat B tickets as Cat A tickets are no longer on sale. I only booked Cat A tickets as we have friends over from Australia so we splashed out. We would've been more than happy with B tickets. In fact some of my group would've been happy with Cat C tickets but I managed to persuade them. I will never buy tickets in advance again for a Rugby League International. I will wait for a discount code and if it sells out fine, if no code prevails I will watch on tv.
  11. So, having done the right thing and bought 24 tickets for the final a few months ago as part of an order for over 100 tickets covering every single game in the tournament, I have now been sent a 40% off code for the final (NHSFINAL). Fair enough, I qualified for the group discount at the time and therefore got £50 tickets for £40, but the RFL's total inability to sell our sport to both our own fans and sports fans in general and their reliance of voucher codes or use of groupon/wowcher/travelzoo to shift tickets has really annoyed me. Fans buying early and getting behind the sport should always get the best deal. In future I will sit back and wait for a 40% off code. I now have 23 people questioning why I bought tickets so far in advance when they can now get Category B tickets for just £24.
  12. 21 of us from Wigan. Coach there and back. Terrible kick off times hasn't stopped us going but has stopped us staying over.
