NRC final moving to Halifax

Just one?

Or blank weeks.

You've got two clubs playing in a two legged final whilst the rest are sat twiddling their thumbs.

No its the final. One week at one club the other week at the other club. Surely that could be fitted in without too much grief, on the suggest scheme and it's Halifax all the set up will have to be changed anyway. How many neutrals go anyway, most could play if they wanted to..

Agreed, a final is a final is a final! Two legs are boring!

What the clubs have done by these votes re the finals is to stick two fingers up at the fans and say s0d you lot, we care more about our profits than we do about you.

Did any Super League clubs bid for the final?

I don't think they had a say matt. I think it was just the RFL and champ clubs that had the meeting and only the champ clubs voted I think. But I would like to know what our club voted for.

You'd have hoped for an open bidding process!

I've voiced my concerns in an earlier post, but it's done now, so lets make the most of it!

Halifax is fairly central, and a nice town, so let's maximise the day! I don't go to RL internationals because they stink too much of Super League, but I got a cracking deal on the World Cup Final. I got 4 tickets, 1 concession and 3 kids, for £20, plus we all got a free beanie hat each. At those prices it seemed mean not to take my grandkids. It seems the RFL are trying to fill the ground to advertise the game.

Instead of bumping up the prices, the Championship Clubs ought to concentrate on trying to fill the ground. If they made ticket prices attractive, especially to neutral supporters, many would come, new deals could be struck with the caterers in view of the extra customers, and a full house would look great on TV. Empty seats being shown on TV is a bad advert for any sport.

Let's play the final on a Saturday or Sunday tea time and re-arrange all other clashing fixtures other than those in the afternoon where neutrals could still get to the Shay. Let's make the ticket prices very tempting, sell the majority of seats to neutrals, and save the standing areas behind both sets of goals for the finalists! Beside advertising the game, it would give all Championship fans a good day out without costing them the earth!

It would also be a good idea for Calderdale Council to put special afternoon events on in the town at places like the Piece Hall. Eureka, etc.

Whilst I don't agree with some club being at hom e in the final, I have to say that I'd prefer playing away to a two leg affair.
