RL on Channel 4

I believe tickets for home fans are from £20 for adults and even special offers for this game beyond that. To not make £20 tickets available to Saints fans and only offer them £28 is poor, most fans opt for the cheapest ticket not the most expensive.

Okay so I've looked into this a bit more and now understand and agree why some Saints fans are aggrieved. I guess Hull will argue the away section is not equivalent seating/viewing to the very small corner section they have on offer at those prices and therefore priced the same as the opposite home end. Also gather there was nothing to stop Saints buying tickets in that area - although I understand why most have probably opted not to.  

As a Leeds fan, i'm sure you recognise the rip that away fans have to pay to come to Headingley - £24 to stand on a terrace with no roof - the same as Home fans are charged for a covered stands and better facilities. £4 more at Hull with a seat and roof doesn't seem all that bad all of a sudden.

The Western Terrace facilities are the same as the East Terrace facilities. The East Stand has a roof but when it rains plenty on the East Stand terrace get wet still. It’s completely fair they are equally priced and not comfortable to Hull. The Equivalent at Leeds would be putting away fans in the East Stand seats and charging them North Stand prices to sit there.

As I said most RL fans opt for the cheapest ticket and Hull are charging away fans an extra £4 compared to Leeds, but the extra £4 won’t stop me attending Leeds away, it’s the principle the home fans are paying less.

Wear a Hull shirt to the game and plead your case in the club shop?

1st 10 minutes of The Last Leg tonight talking about last weeks S//L, also mention the viewing figures a few times, then about Hull tomorrow's game. Great stuff.

He wants a slogan for Hull. So many but not clean ones 🤣🤣

Yes I've been in the East Stand , and got soaked , so basically the 2 ends of Headingley are rubbish

Paul Sculthorpe doing really well after replacing Sam Tomkins. He is another that always comes across well and is badly under used when it comes to TV. Danika Priim impresses me more everytime I see her too.

It's hard to believe that Sky give the presentation roles to the people they do when there are far better RL personalities out there that come across so much better.

I'm not a massive Sky-hater, but it is just nice to see somebody else have a go with different faces and a different approach. It does make Sky look very complacent.

Another good start. Sculthorpe slots in seamlessly and the other three are as good as last week, too. Nice little interview between Roby and Houghton, too. 

The contrast between them and Sky is night and day. Do we know who has replaced Amor on co-comms? He’s not in the Saints side but I can’t see them allowing him to work for 4 instead.

Sounds like Last Leg is turning into that Super League weekly wrap-up show that everyone would like to see on C4.😉 Will be interesting to see how much coverage it gets once the games are only on monthly. I get the strong impression that Adam Hills is going to find it very hard not to mention League every week, it will be very interesting to see but I expect his passion for the game will make it very hard for him not to be working it in somehow or other.

I’ve never seen his programme (wouldn’t have known him from Adam last week, if you’ll excuse the pun), but I gather it’s popular so the more he mentions League the better 👍

Danika Priim is excellent, but I could do without Helen Skelton, who is dreadful in everything she does. Never seems to have progressed from presenting Blue Peter.

I’ve never seen any of her programmes but she seems really personable to me, from this and last week.

If we can up it to 1 game a week on Channel 4, 2 Regular Thurs/Fri Sky Games plus a weekly French Saturday afternoon fixture it would be amazing.

Not for my marriage.

“It’s a simple game, it’s a simple game!” Teams could save a lot of money and get rid of the coaches, players can work out the ‘simple’ game surely? 

PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugbyleague.co.uk/article/8790/join-team-wales-for-2013

Predictions for the future -

Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG

Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT

Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG

Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

We don't have that many matches on C4 so it is a shame to have a mismatch.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Shame for Hills that they only brought two umbrellas.

I can never understand why RL pundits and commentators say this.

Its no simpler that a wide number of sports, including soccer.
