Only one SL round of fixtures planned for Easter 2020.

Recommended Posts


         SL Steve Prescott Man of Steel 2016 - Danny Houghton  SL Top Gun 2016/2017 - Marc Sneyd (83%/89% goal success)

         SL Hit Man 2016/2017 - Danny Houghton (1,289/1,123 tackles)  SL Club of the Year 2016 - Hull FC

         SL Coach of the Year 2016 - Lee Radford   RL Challenge Cup Winners 2016/2017 - Hull FC

 

                                                                      All in all, not a bad couple of years, I suppose...

Thank heavens, the Easter Monday games were dreadful. 

Would be good if the championship matches were all on Easter Monday

Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Good news, the Monday games were always poor and poorly attended anyway. 

The final round taking place at the same time is good too and much more professional.

Fine, I hadn't seen it which is why I suggested as such.

Perhaps you can post a link to the relevant thread/news as you're fairly sure?

Interesting that the article in the OP states that all final round fixtures will kick off at the same time, which is long overdue too!

Perhaps, but I bet someone knew about it last year...

I remember reading something about it recently, but I think it wasn't confirmed news then. A speculative article, perhaps.

You mean a ' leak ' , which is the normal way we get news in RL 😉

The speed decisions can change in RL, it is best to wait for official confirmation... then wait another week in case they change their mind.

The Grand Final now seems to have a regular slot of the second week of October so this will probably mean that the season will start a week earlier than last year. The sooner the league is increased to get rid of the need of loop fixtures the better.

Over two months actually, although that was speculation.

Should be spread across the whole weekend to maximise attendances and viewership on the box.

 

 

I think all on Good Friday, the traditional day for the fans who go to the game.

Is this somehow suggesting Hull FC were at a disadvantage in some way by having to play on Monday ?

Who did Saints play on the Friday ?

I wasn't suggesting anything other than we won at a canter on Fiday but were absolutely shafted on the Monday.

That was what being a Hull fan in 2019 was like.

It seems you're looking for things that aren't there.
