Dewsbury Rams 6 Bradford Bulls 48 - discuss the match here

50 posts in this topic

Really hope the Bulls bring most of the first team for this one.They have not got the biggest squad this time around,so more first team players will be used with a bit of luck.This would help with getting the attendance up as well around the 1500 mark,maybe more if it's reduced prices again,but can't see that happening for this game.

I hope the prices are the same as for the Fax game, let's get people coming up to watch. We've as good a squad this year as we've had for a long while (My opinion)

We were told "exciting times ahead" at the launch. We should all try to get as many new faces up for the match as we can. We can all do our bit to make this come true.

Spot on. Please, please £10 on Sunday. Lets get more people in....My missus will spend a tenner, but if it goes above she tends to pull out of games like these....Lets keep it affordable and get people in. Incidently I went on the Bradford website yesterday and could find no mention of Sundays game....

800 people paying a tenner = £8000

600 people paying £14 = £8400

The question is whether £10 would attract an extra 240 people using 600 and 800 as an example.

But then what does the bar bring in? Prices are reasonable so surely not a great deal?

I am sure the club will have assessed the numbers this year and worked out whether the reduced price attracts more than £14 detracts.

The thing is charging a tenner may not just get us more to the game but another good peformance could tempt afew more to the fev game or other league games.

Charging 14 and 15 quid in friendlies straight after christmas is tough for some families, What ever we charge the club should put it in the papers this week, we only got to know the price of the fax game on saturday, aday before kickoff

Cant fault the maths Funkmaster and I am sure the club will be looking at the options. But, using your numbers, do we want 800 people creating a decent atmosphere, match experience, more interesting for the less committed or do we want 600 die hards? Know which I would prefer, but I'm not in charge of the finances and if I was was, the club would probably be broke.....

And as DTID just pointed out - There is the possibility of return fans so the club must account for that.

It would be interesting to find statistics on our gate over the last decade. Have you any idea of our yearly average?

No, but suspect BSJ knows them off by heart. My impression is that they have held up fairly well over the years we have been at Owl Lane, but we've never managed to get much over 1000 without the visiting team bringing a few. The early televised games helped. The combination of the TV and any number of special offers available lead to some half decent attendences, but this seems to have fallen away now. Rightly or wrongly over the last few seasons I have in my head that the number of Dewsbury fans is 774 and if we played a team like the Scholars or the South Wales Scorpions that would be the gate.

Snow's supposed to be spreading North from the SE so you may know better than us!

The forecast seems to be bouncing about every couple of hours - the Met Office isn't predicting snow on Sunday at the moment.

To answer the question posed at the start of this thread. Admission will be regular 2013 match day prices.

Can we use this thread to discuss the match, and the new thread I've set up to discuss ticket prices and marketing ideas?

Cheers! See you all tomorra!

It never got below freezing last night nor was it forecast to so there were not any doubts unless the snow came earlier than f/c

Did Bradford have a full-strength team. I couldn't make it to the game today.

We were hammered, but by what looked to me like a pretty strong Bulls line up. Thought the lads stuck to the task and the only disappointing aspect was the number of mistakes we made. It was pretty much like the Doggies match in that we gave up the ball far too often. Not sure what the completion rate was, but it was no where near as high as last week. Reckon they will have learnt quite a bit. Morton played very well and the pack worked really hard again. Just a shame we've to wait three weeks now.....

i wouldnt say hammered

4 mistakes in our 20 resulted in tries

bradford were faster and more slick

and never going to lose

lads did fine....BUT

have to stop making mistakes in our 20..cost us dear today

think in the championship the ratio for making mistakes resulting in tries will be smaller

but it still is a issue that needs sorting out.

still not sold on coleman yet..either needs more game time to settle in,or find where best he plays

but overall im a happy bunny and hold much hope for the season on performances over the last 2 weeks.
