Magic Weekend 2020 - Fixtures Announced

Recommended Posts

Sick of playing Wigan at magic, will give a miss. We will probably have them in the cup a couple of weeks before like for the last three years. Never short of overkill.

Yup. If they were going to mix it up why leave the one game that has been consistent for the last few years?

pretty good fixtures don't know why Saints vs. Salford isn't the final game on one of the day instead of the 2nd.

I imagine both days finishing with well supported Yorkshire clubs is intended to build and keep a crowd to the end of the day.

I see the great minds of the RFL have put Giants vs Wolfpack on 1st match on The Sunday. That means a 7.30am kick off in Toronto. So much for trying to engage the new fan base and expand the reach of our great game. Surely any other of the kick off times would have made more commercial sense in terms of media coverage.

Gives time for them to get home , less travelling time required for Hull and Leeds

Depends if they want the place empty for that game , they probably assume the overnighters and large fan bases of Wigan and Wire will come in early to watch at least the second half

Aye, so Huddersfield v Toronto first on Sunday in front of 5000

Rather than Huddersfield v Toronto last on Sunday in front of 1000

Nah...been there, done that!

It was only a light hearted comment, btw.

Just looked on the Warrington guardian website and all comments are about playing Wigan at magic and how they are bored with it. Could see crowds drop even lower.

It would have been better to start of with Toronto v Catalans

Warrington v Salford

Hull v Hull KR

 

Day 2

Huddersfield v Wakefield

Wigan v Stains 

Leeds v Castleford

I really don't mean to be rude, but the fixtures have been announced. There is little point posting different iterations of what will not happen. 

Let's discuss what will actually happen ?

Well you are being very rude lol.

We are debating what a load of male genitals the RFL are doing with the magic weekend. Bring back the derbies, the current fixtures listed won't entice people to attend,I certainly won't be going to watch these fixtures
