The problem is this...a cup final, no matter how minor, is being played in a stadium capable of holding 90k and there are about, ooh...6/7,000 in here?
It’s a complete joke that it’s being played after the main event. Which bright spark thought that one up? It’s just not a good look for the sport.
In saying that, I’m sat up in the nose bleed seats with a beer and I’m enjoying myself. Credit to the Widnes fans too, they’ve bought into this, and the few Eagles fans are having a good time. But let’s not kid ourselves, it’s another example of idiotic planning by the governing body and doesn’t do anything for the image of the sport.
