Rugby League Grounds Visited


Recommended Posts

Not many actually, I've never had a lot of money and I don't drive so I've never really made it to away games, especially not with so many being on weekday nights these days cos I worked evenings and early mornings for so long. I have been to quite a few grounds for event games like Cup finals, magic and internationals though but they are the only times I ever get away from the KCOM.

58 different grounds for me , 59 if we include the Championship 7 s , wife's done another 8 on top of that 

One of the most interesting was the Eagles at Bramall Lane , when the Spearmint Rhino girls came walking past us on their way to the hot tub 😍

Ha, ha. I can tell you the first was Fartown (1974) and the most recent Castle Park (2020, a Sheffield Eagles game @ Doncaster RU).

There's a guy posts on here occasionally whose total is well over 400.

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.

The Nottingham game would have been at Harvey Hadden Stadium

I got to 58 which is a rather meagre effort compared to some.

So I offer an alternative option.

Can you name a ground that you have been to and hopefully no one else on this board has visited that ground.

I will kick off with Hindmarsh Stadium in Adelaide.  I watched the NQ Cowboys beat Cronulla there in 2008.  I hope that I am the only one of the 8,547 attending that is on this forum.  The stadium also hosted 4 Adelaide Rams fixtures in 1998 and Storm v Panthers in 2006.

Easy one for me RUSSIA v GEORGIA at the Olympic Stadium Moscow (I was thinking of French grounds however audios would have been to pretty much all of them)

This should be a safe bet for me unless Gary Tasker and Adam Ex RFL post on this board as they were there to:)

Other one would be Locomotive Moscow and Rostov On Don 🙂
