Denver Test - Ticket Sales

Currently watching USA v Scotland RU (late night at work and trying to get to sleep...) on BBC Scotland. Shows what great timing next week’s game is to have it prime time rather than the early hours and even more so if it’s not regionalised coverage. 

Also not wishing to take this in to cross code territory but they’ve just shown a caption that the stadium has a 22,000 capacity and there are a LOT of empty seats.

This isn’t going to help

Johnson, RTS, Harris and Beale have pulled out. Blair, Luke, Hiku, Maumalo are the only Warriors available.

Kata and Fusitu’a are injured as are Rapana, Marshall, Jesse Bromwich and Foran plus Mannering, Packer and Matulino have retired.

On the plus side, England might win!

Grand for the England brand if we smash them.

This audience won't know any different or have any context.

And neither will a lot of the BBC viewers unless they're told - which they will be

As we know, players tend to get spun stories of "we expect" to entice them playing so take this tweet two days ago with a pinch of salt: "Sam Burgess just said on Channel 9 that the @England_RL v @NZRL_Kiwis test match next week in Denver is set to attract 45,000 fans"

This sounds like what he's been told than based on facts

Just like to point out that many Americans have contacted Moore Sports over the ridiculous service charges on Ticketmaster, with many stating they are paying on the gate!

Englands first Squad V a rabble of a team cobbled together due to injuries, pull out's and Heritage team loyalties.

Its a recipe for something.... A cricket score.

 


Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.

Its England A versus Kiwi C team.

How well did the Kiwis go last year with more players to choose from?

Hope you didn’t bet on New Zealand when you said they’d win by 15 against a ‘wish and hope’ England side

But... In the other thread on this subject you said that England do not produce test quality backs unless they move to Australia (the NRL) as kids and that you couldn't even select an England team as there is no quality to choose from.

Isn't this Kiwi team being selected from NRL players?

Its being selected from all of New Zealand's players, local, NRL and Super League isn't it?

Dont underestimate that kiwi team, pretty much all players selected are in form and with a new coach there is a chance they will show up with a better attitude than last year.

I'm hearing lots of excellent things from England, but has anyone heard anything from the Kiwis?

Maybe they will forfeit. ?

But seriously, getting pumped for this.

What I meant was that the entire squad that has been selected play in the NRL.  Which means the final 17 will all be NRL regulars.

It could easily be 12-8 - a perfectly plausible score looking at the current Australian cricket team.
