I think he means the Sir bit lol

I hope they put KR and Saints on tele. KR are one of the few sides whose support isn't that affected by TV games.

 

most of the bbc armchair viewers will be wondering where george fairburn and steve hubbard are!

By a happy coincidence London Broncos U19s have a home game v Featherstone that weekend. Currently at the Military Stadium in Aldershot. Now if they're still having trouble using The Stoop I wouldn't be surprised to see the Challenge Cup game staged there too. I think it could comfortably accommodate the 650 odd that attended the equivalent fixture against Dewsbury last year.

Doubt if Fev will put out a second string team to play Broncos, which is what Dewsbury did last season. I'm sure they've got more respect for the competition than the Rams (and probably fancy their chances of a win!)

All of the SL teams who draw lower league clubs should have to play away.

Agree if the finances stack up, although I've spoken to more than a few non-league football chairman who breath a sigh of relief when being drawn away, especially to teams from higher leagues as they have to foot expenses such as travel which risks running at a loss.

 

Be great if Wigan and Leigh can conjure up an excuse to switch the tie to the LSV, be a great atmosphere in a superb stadium.

Agreed, unfortunately Latics are away that weekend so for once, whilst I'd allow gerroff our turf outburst, that isn't going to happen.

When do they announce the fixture dates and times?

Once BBC and Sky decide which games they want. Probably today/tomorrow

I think there's probably a minimum standard that Hemel would fail to reach
