It’s hard to keep track of Leigh’s signings, hopefully all these changes won’t de-rail their promotion push.
Leigh seem to be building a platform for success
it could be the 'Wembley of the North'

Officially they are less than 1mm apart as they are states (not cities) that sit next to each other.
the closest derby in the world then!

A sell-out!!! And, for them, a "cold" night at 7 degrees....
and two teams 900km apart !
I have the following available if anyone interested:
1971 Leigh v Leeds
1978 Leeds v St Helens
PM me with an address and I will post them to you. I would rather do this than recycle.

If we strip things right back, Wigan v Saints in a Challenge Cup Semi Final is an attractive fixture.
I think people are just bored by the repetition now.
There are all the loop fixtures, magic weekend fixtures and the challenge cup is basically a Super League knock-out cup due to the strength of SL teams and the rest barring the occasional upset which is now really just an occasional close run thing

Can't see a Widnes win tbh.
Most of the team sat in the stand.
Agree with this.
Widnes will confirm their mid-table mediocrity this afternoon

I agree,looking forward to Saturday.
Absolutely massive game, could there be approaching 2,000 there with it being Easter?
I would say it's obviously Wath Brow Hornets v. Egremont Rangers due to their proximity and impact this match has in the local community

Not official but seen 3,442 mentioned as the Widnes v Barrow game.
Good effort. The next home game is v. Leigh on Good Friday so hopefully will be pushing towards 6,000.
Looking at the Widnes website seems like hospitality packages in the South Stand are selling well too for this game. Not sure who gets the benefit of this though - the club or the council. Anyway, onwards & upwards...

Actually, having read the forecast early doors, it hasn't rained at all in the last 4 hours - bloody weather predictors for you.
Don't worry. I am sure you have already put off any undecided potential speccies

Does it not take less time to fly from say Manchester to Perpignan than it does to take the train from say Newcastle to Leigh?
Not sure if there is an airport in Leigh, but I know from reading this forum that there isn't a railway station

Regarding the Leeds attendance, I was disappointed with it (although the atmosphere was very good).
We do have to accept the downside of terrestrial tv coverage could mean a small drop in the usual attendance for that game.
I can well imagine a fair few people deciding not to bother going because of the time, weather and the fact its live on channel 4.
It does feel and look like Leeds are trying more this season to get crowds back, we’ve had the perfect storm of, stadium rebuild, ###### performances and covid over the last 5 years!
Someone should have told Sid

Media presence is also garbage at widnes
and so is the beer selection !
Anyway, looking forward to Sunday v. Workington, hopefully crowd will be 3000+

In the Liverpool area, there's only Waterloo of any stature. And, of course, they don't play in Liverpool. The handful of Wirral clubs, none of them in the upper levels, aren't Liverpool either. Liverpool Collegiate (Aigburth) and West Derby-based Sefton (where Liverpool Buccaneers ARLFC used to play) are tiny operations.
Caldy RUFC (Level 3 - National League 1 currently in 4th place) and Wirral RUFC (Level 5 - North Premier) are both semi-professional and operate at a higher level than Waterloo who are currently Level 6 - North 1 West, so they tend to pick up the best local RU talent from either side of the Mersey at the moment. The demand seems to be well served with the clubs in existence at the moment and I think it would be tough for Rugby League to try and grow in this small market.
Back on topic, it's good to see RL clubs developing facilities as this is one area that the Union clubs have an advantage.

So to summarise this, they are staying at the AJ Bell for 2022 whilst various feasibility studies are carried out with Moor Lane option not being without complications

Sometimes you get the same people collecting stuff. Wonder if they are then having a car boot somewhere?!
Probably, and if they can make a few quid then good luck to them.
In the last few weeks I have decluttered a double mattress, 3 chairs, 2 old radios and a trench guard (all collected by different people). Contemplating putting some of my RL programmes on as I can't get rid of them on here
England v Fiji moved to Salford
in The General Rugby League Forum
I thought that, aren't they Rochdale Athletic?
