How Many Grounds Have You Watched Rugby From Every Stand?

22 posts in this topic

Just a bit of a twist on the old "how many grounds have you been to?" topics we've had in the past.

How many have you been in every stand of to watch a rugby game?

Only 6 for me I think:

Boulevard

KC Stadium

Galpharm Stadium

Millennium Stadium

New Craven Park

Headingley Carnegie

Odsal/Grattan Stadium

Ooh, not many really, Wilderspool and the HJ straight off, actually, Knowsley Road too.

Not even Wembley or Old Trafford, so I think it's just the three for me...

Odsal, although not corporate end!

Galpharm.

Maybe Headingley, definitely 3 stands, dunno about the east stand, definitely not since it was re-done. Cas, I think. Possibly Wakefield too.

KC Stadium

Cougar Park

The Shay (sat in the new east stand vs Featherstone this year)

Galpharm

Craven Park, Hull KR (stood in the well with the ex vs Wigan last year)

Forgot about the Magic Weekend! Although, I only did three stands at both grounds (one was shut at Millennium Stadium), I sat in that stand for the Challenge Cup Final in 2005, so I can add that one!

I'll add South Leeds Stadium- Hunslet.

Only 1 side, and I've sat there. :P

Just the one - Cougar Park - I'm usually a creature of habit and stand in more or less the same place every time. I don't switch ends at half time either.

I've done all 4 at Hilton Park - that's the only one

I'll not list all the 3s and 2s

Would have thought it's one for the older crew & and older grounds - being able to change ends etc

Oh, and the pitch at Firgrove where Kirkholt were playing Mayfield 'A' (I think) in a district cup game. Ex-Kirkholt played in the game. I didn't stay long as I was out for my Saturday run - I did a couple of laps of the pitch, stopped to chat to a speccy and then went on my way.

Well, I'm certainly a creature of habit as I've only ever done this at the Boulevard as far as I can recall. I'm suprised Northern Exposure's not surfaced on this thread. Surely Sky have cameras on all four sides of every ground during their screening of live games?

Odsal/Grattan Stadium

The only ones I can think of are the Galpharm, and then only if you count the NZ v Italy RU World Cup game in 1999 and Headingley.

I've never been in the main stand at PO Road. I once watched a game from the top of the Sandal end stand at Belle Vue (1964 CC semi replay Widnes v Hull KR)

Yeah, he'll have seen Headingley from his lounge, kitchen, bedroom and conservatory :lol:

For me, after a great deal of thought, it is Belle Vue (Wakey) Post Office Road, Headingley, Central Park, Naughton Park (former Widnes), Station Road (former Swinton), Knowsley Road and Odsal of course.

PS (for the ones I forgot:

Wheldon Rd (how could I forget Cas!)

Thrum Hall (ditto)
