  1. They said at the forum that the match was at Batley again. Might be me but seems to be at Mount Unpleasant every year these days...
  2. you'd need a few to attend and spend quite a few bob to even pay the gas bill to heat the place. Suspect it wasn't viable.
  3. There is absolutely no way the RFL would have given a game to a ground holding less than 5k. Despite some of the half empty stadia I bet most games had in excess of 5000.
  4. Was OK but didn’t get a decent run. Probably a second rower / centre ( as are all second rowers these days)
  5. Lebanon v can’t remember was one
  6. Having watched so many games in half empty stadiums I doubt they’d have had to worry about that in the end.
  7. Agree. Would be helped by "bring a friend for a tenner"...... That said do we even know what the admission charge will be? Im guessing not £18..please.....
  8. My take was that the deal was still to be confirmed. Maybe interest from elsewhere following his World Cup exploits
  9. Connor Davies would be good news. liked the look of him last year and thought he looked good in a Wales side that was always under the cosh.
  10. Jesus. Seem some ***** on here but that’s gunna take some beating. The man is single handedly keeping us afloat. My take on it was that we’re in serious trouble and if Mark has to pay those utility bills himself we’ll be watching shaw cross next year.
  11. Anthony walker played three games for us (on loan) in 2017.

  14. Read your own post BSJ. We don’t yet know what they’ll be charging for 2023.
  15. Oh dear. Typical BSJ. You know exactly what I mean . I for one are looking forward very much to see us compete week in week out but let’s not kid ourselves that the rugby will be of the same standard. I read your post. What Championship clubs are charging is irrelevant. Ok we dont know what league 1 clubs might charge for 2023 but what they charged this year is a useful guide.
  16. Not really...We're in League 1 now BSJ...Less games, poorer product, greater the degree of need...
  17. As well as Coolies suggestion might be time to look at other initiatives too; A) season tickets holders can bring a friend / family member to any game for a tenner*? B) season tickets include two free tickets for friends / family? C) reduced rate for two or more season tickets. Sort of family season ticket. More than a single one, less than two. Might encourage a few to bring their other halves Might be too similar to a) but maybe not D) a “club” card. This would work well for those who can’t make every game. YCCC use it. We could pay £30 for the season amd then every game is £10. If someone goes to every game that’s still £130* E) under 24s season tickets at reduced rate. Try somet to get some youngsters in F) Agree with BSJ about concessions too. It’s true to say these days that many of us retired folk probably have more disposable income than working folk I’d charge same for all ages. I’d apply this to game day too Amazing how many fans are under 16 or over 60 Nearly all, looking at the turnstiles on match days If I was gunna charge less it wouldn’t be for old folk It’d be for youngsters G) three year memberships The rhinos use these. Keeps folk “interested” for three years at least and this year might help boost the income when it’s needed most. * These prices depend on what we might charge at the gate of course. Surely not £18 for League1 As already mentioned, whatever we do, give one to all new home owners on the estate opposite. Could add on other initiatives such as 10% off at the bar with a season ticket. That adds value for tight gits like me.
  18. You might well buy one to support the club but clearly many others don’t. The only way to increase sales and the added benefits this brings is to take a punt and charge something like £100. Loss leader sort of thing. We won’t have many away fans next year so nows the time to try and increase our own numbers.
  19. Agree on the concessions….especially since these days it’s retired folk that have all the brass. cant agree on the £150. If it’s £150 I won’t buy even one. (I’m one of BSJs idiots who still takes holidays even though I know I might miss a few games) if it’s £100 I’ll buy two. Maybe even treat the lad and get three, cos I know I will get my monies worth.
  20. Think recent sales have been poor because: a) we’ve been charging too much. (£185 for 13 home games ain’t exactly a bargain for a game played in summer when most people are gunna miss a game or two). b) We’ve been playing ###### rugby for too long. With regards the sliding scale; sounds good in principle but how’d I get my money back if I buy one early doors and then we sell 100s? I think you give people a bargain and try and get em thru the turnstiles. Creates revenue at the bar and creates a better atmosphere. Something that will be otherwise hard to generate with the likely attendances next year 10 home games. Most people will miss one or two. I’d charge £100.
  21. Whatever we charge I reckon we should give at least one to every new Householder in the new estate opposite. Will be worth it if we get even a few lifelong supporters moving forward.
  22. How much should we charge for next year? Doncaster charged £60, Hunslet £120 and Cornwall £99.
  23. Not surprised they haven't gone. They wouldn't have got game all season. Non of our squad would get a game at Batley. Just not good enough...
  24. Won’t happen this time unless we splash cash we ain’t got
