    Leeds New Signing

    If you look on his twitter feed Marty and his wife took a visit to Headingley Stadium and had some high praise for the club. Could mean nothing. But a little strange why a player would go visit a club for no apparent reason. He and his wife also seemed to really enjoy England.
  2. Me too. There was a growing voice in the game to downsize the event. I always say you can't just transplant one crowd into a smaller stadium. There is 60-70k preparared to go to Wembley for the CC final doesn't mean 50k will go to the Eithad. You may get 30k in the Eithad. You only have to look at the Powergen/Anglo Welsh now Premiership Rugby cup to see what happens when you devalue a trophy, from 70k attendances to 6k.
  3. 2020 final will be played on 18th July

    RLIF Announce 8 year Cycle

    You'll get full houses easy for Tonga and Samoa and probably 15k for NZ. There will be a full house at Port Moresby and probably decent government funding/sponsorship.

    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    Crazy, who is gonna buy a seat in the top left of the stand. Why wait until 2 days before the event. Monday morning was the best time to open and push sales.

    Places like the Balkan states, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe you are more likely to see a Handball, Basketball Volleyball or Ice Hockey on the screen in a bar than you are a soccer match. I could never get my head around a pub full of grown men watching pro mens Volleyball tournaments ( thought it was purely for bikini clad women on beaches) but I assure you it does happen.

    There is all across Europe and the world. Just because it doesn't feature in the UK doesn't mean it doesn't exist. In alot of countries around Europe handball and basketball are bigger than soccer.

    There are a lot of sports that would love the popularity we have. Sure Cricket and RU have the establishment behind them but they both along with RL are pretty niche relative to sports like Soccer, Basketball and Tennis. Even on the continent stuff like Handball, volleyball and Ice Hockey tower over RU in terms of popularity and participant's.

    If we are comparing to soccer RU is not a major sport in this cointry other than once a year in the 6 nations. There are what 12-14 full time clubs that get an average of what 12k attendance hardly grounbreaking stuff.

    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    Well Im sure that wasn't the target. I assume they thought they could get the 40k back with no or very little effort on there part. But again it proves just like the Olympic stadium game you need to work extra hard to get them back the second time. The second album syndrome as it were

    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    It's not difficult. People want to go to world class stadia that's why you got 26k even with little to marketing in Anfield and only 17k in Hull You can't just transplant one crowd into a smaller stadium because the reason why a lot of people go is because of the location and stadium. It was booked because they got 40k for the last RL game staged there, but it was because of an utter failure that the managed to only get 26k.
