RL has been reduced to the bare bones for many people. More and more are fans of their club and little else now after a pretty naff few years of general malaise.

If their aren't enough RL enthusiasts or enthusiasts of the two cup final teams to fill Wembley, that isn't the fault of fans who do at least still go watch their club.

Ha I'm the opposite. I think the game as a whole is fascinating and I just can't 'gel' with the Giants whom I used to follow for.

If the Giants have a big lead at HT , the stadium will be nearly empty after an hour 😉

That is tragic.

The game is blighted by these attitudes amongst ''fans''.

Rarely spotted south of Crewe. There’s a graph somewhere that paints the clear relationship between a decrease in meyt and prater and increase in those awful Pukka pies the further you travel south.

Strange. Over centuries, lots of Northerners have  moved south in  search of fame and fortune, but somehow have not taken their cuisine with them, or at least only as far as Melton Mowbray. 😀

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

Had to chuckle batley official club site. 25 quid cheaper on coach and its 10 mins away. Fair play the more the merrier. As my old boy who is coming used to say when I asked about attendance  well son there will be me and thee. Oh and the wife is coming so 3 at the least.

55k tickets sold so far

What's the source of this figure?

Where have you heard/read that? Incredible if true - sadly I think most will agree that won't be the case even by match day, let alone a week out. 

I wouldn't be surprised if it was 55k, but I also wouldn't be surprised if it was 35k.

But the lack of certain marketing that the RFL regularly use suggests that they may have done what they hoped (although I'd argue sellout is the aim). 

But, who knows.

The 4 finalist of both matches still have 1000s of tickets unsold on their allocations alone. Hudds allocation is selling every other row as it the RFL.

If it is 55k then great, it means people have read all the stuff on the forum about pitch lengths,  Coach parking, and substandard train service and concluded that they were reading a load of billhooks.

Yeah I think that's it with this every other row strategy that seems popular with RL events - are areas actually sold out or every other row sold, waiting for other areas to sell until they're released? You'd hope at this point all remaining available were on sale, but I just have doubts that is the case. As always i'll go with an optimistic figure of 54k come match day - realistically I think it'll be closer to 48k - which won't look ridiculous in a 62k stadium but nonetheless disappointing it won't be a sell out.

I believe Huddersfield have only sold 3,000.

A lad I go to Fev with is a Town fan.  He reckons there are "hundreds" of Town fans buying tickets for the challenge cup and making a weekend of it.

Let's hope it's true.
