Apparently NZ are looking to play the Cook Islands as a WC warm up, possibly in Doncaster.

 

Now confirmed.

 

Rugby league's world champions, New Zealand, will be coming to Doncaster to play the Cook Islands in a warm-up game at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday 20th October (3pm kick-off), just one week before the start of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup (RLWC).

Would be nice if we could get a Scotland game in Edinburgh, maybe against Fiji or somebody.

Not heard anything about Scotland playiing a warm up, but a game in Scotland would be a good idea to try and increase awareness.

 

Last I heard, Fiji were looking at playing Rochdale.

Nah, looking forward to supporting some new teams in RLWC, just wish I had a couple of Scotland games closer to home!

Me too! I got a ticket to USA vs Cook Islands at Bristol as it's 2 teams I have never seen at a location I have never been.

Exciting stuff!!! They have changed the colour of the Upper East Stand at Cardiff to Cat 3 tickets (£50). Not on sale just yet but looking forward to them doing so me and my Army of non-RL fans can get our tickets. :D

 

Nothing new on sale at Wembley yet. Grrr....

All tickets (at least all the ones I've tried it with) are half price using the promo code "100DAYS".

Nope, just bought 3 tickets for Headingley (NZL vs PNG) was fine.

 

I've got it working now! :D

 

2 x tickets bought for England vs Fiji at Hull.

Had a bit of trouble earlier.

 

Working now though. The most frustrating thing is when it times out when you've got £200 worth of tickets in your basket and you can't remember which matches they were for!

Great effort Brooza!

 

I have managed to get together a group of about 30-35 people for the Big Hit. We are jumping on the back of the tickets bought by St Albans but there are plenty of RL first timers in the group. Two of the group have even bought tickets for the opening ceremony, plus both PNG games at Hull KR.

Has there been much publicity of the "half price" special? Or of the "100 days to go" milestone being reached?

Are all those "sold out" sections of Millennium Stadium I now see on the RLWC tickets page for the opener actually sold out?

 

And why are they STILL not selling seats in really good areas, like in front of the half-way line? Are they for tour groups from Oz etc?

You can still get the odd single seat in some of the areas and there a few seats left in the £40 areas but not many at all. I think for ease of purpose and user friendliness, the organisers have made the decision to push supporters to the other areas.

The problem I had was that I left my list of matches I was planning on going to at work, so I had to guess. Think I have a couple more to buy still

 

EDIT: Scotland are the only country I'm not seeing. Will have to add at least one more match

Really jealous of this list mate!

 

Unfortunately due to funds, other commitments etc. I have had to pull right back on the games we are going to be able to attend.

 

Only confirmed the Double Header, NZ v Samoa, Scotland v Italy and the Final.

 

I am hoping to find reasonable flights for Wembley and that would mean seeing almost a quarter of all games live, which I'm ahappy with, but gutted I can;t make Huddersfield or Limerick.

Just got my opening ceremony ticket. tenner with the 100days code! happy but i wprry that its too cheap and will have the tickets sold but people dont turn up effect. luckily i live in cardiff so no issue for me, but i can understand people not turning up given that travel and accommodation will be so much more than th ticket. still the sold out bays looks good so far!
