Rugby League Grounds Visited

Recommended Posts

Apart from your current Home grounds, how many others have you visited? Be honest, this is not a competition. Include foreign ones as well. I am not asking for teams, so if you eg, have been to Fartown, and the John Smiths Stadium, count that as two. Cup finals, Bash & Magic weekends also count. When I get over my headache I will divulge my score -Moderate I think.

PS, You don't have to name them unless you want to.

You used a capital R Bleep? Including the kick and clap too? 

If so 14

Not Union Games, but Union Stadiums, if a League was played under your eyes.

My current score is 45.

Although that might change when my memory sobers up. 

My first foreign trip was to France in 1985 for a France v GB Match.

I got stuck in a snow drift on the A62 coming back from Sheffield.

A couple of TRL members have contributed 650 programmes to the this RL programmes site. This link show the 101 different grounds for these fixtures, which might trigger some memories. The grounds include RL grounds for professional and amateur clubs, plus a variety of venues also used by other sports.

I honestly can't remember them all but as  Hull KR fan I remember going to Nottingham to witness our record win 6-100. Don't know what the ground was called but is was close to the M1.

I've been to Borough Park (Blackpool) and Preston North End (think that was v Chorley Borough). Also went to the Isle of Man for a RL version of the charity shield versus Wigan. We played Union Treiziste Catalane in the challenge cup at a ground which wasn't where they are now. 

I've been to all the variants of London Broncos plus London Skolars. I've been to Toronto, Toulouse (both grounds) and both Wembley's.

I haven't even seen a picture of Rovers first East Hull ground at Craven Street I don't think one exists but the next 2 grounds on Holderness Road and Preston Road continued to carry the 'Craven' name.

Been to most of the grounds outside SL that have been used in the last 20 years. Just trying to think of the more unusual ones.

Can I count The Cliff (Broughton Rangers) as I have played football there?

Oakwell? Wakefield played there once and I've been watching City there.

Swinton played a 'home' game at Orrell.
