If this happens I think it will be a great move.

ST HELENS want to play next year's home fixture with Warrington at Goodison Park.

They will play most of 2011's home games at Widnes while a new 18,000-seater stadium is built.

If both clubs push this as a real 'event' match and just market the hell out of it, especially to kids, this could be a very good opportunity indeed.

Any Rugby League fans in the Everton squad?

They could get easily over 20,000 for this match. A lot of Wire would go over to Goodison especially if it was a big season opener.

They should get more. If Saints are serious about filling an 18K stadium, and Warrington are playing as well as they are this year, and they market it to Everton fans and the wider Liverpool community, they should be targetting 30-40K

Then again, this is RL. St Helens or Warrington to Liverpool is just too far to go, isn't it.

North Derbyshire Chargers - join the stampede

Running targets in 2016 - Run an Ultra, run 2016km in total and beat my 5K PB

Great move by Saints if this correct

If the game is priced and marketed right should be 25K plus game.

also, great idea, as Wires only go to the Halton for Semi Finals wink.gif

Didn't Tim Cahill's cousin play for Samoa at th 2008 WC? Not sure who it was though. Just checked and apparently he's the cousin of Ben Roberts AND Apollo Perrelini.

St Helens played Castleford at Anfield on 27 April 1997 winning 42-16 in front of 12,329.
The experiment was not repeated....

I am shocked at the refusal of the British media to be fair and accept the people’s final decision just because the result of the referendum did not benefit the establishment.

It was a shock to hear how the BBC persistently denigrated everyone who voted to Leave.

They have managed to accuse, judge and convict the majority as racist, drunk and irresponsible.

On the other hand I did not hear the BBC question the decision of Remain voters. 

It just goes to show how the BBC, like Sky News and Fox News, did not really tell us the news, but tried to influence us with their opinions, which goes against the moral duty of the news networks.

I like the idea just hope it comes up, would be embarrasing for RL if there are loads of empty seats shown on TV. I think giving Everton season ticket holders free or discount tickets is a great suggestion. If Cahill is a big league fan could maybe try get him involved on the promo side especially when marketing to the soccer fans
