I hope that you will let them keep all the gate money. That's what big clubs like yours usually do for their lesser neighbours to offer a helping hand.

Doubt it'll be a lot down in the ice bowl BSJ! I was perished at Widnes last pre'season and Kingstone Park but I reckon South Leeds in January will beat both. BTW both clubs quiet over Boxing Day...

I am told on good authority that the Boxing Day game is being planned for your place at 12.00. Clubs in general will be making plans for pre-season friendlies so I guess that most would want to announce them as a whole rather than in dribs and drabs.

I'm not too bothered about friendlies, I only went to Huddersfield last year as I had never been there and won't be going again what cold soulless stadium.

Yorks not a bad one. The thing is if we play a sl team they play hardly any first teamers, so give me york any day.

When we played Huddersfield it was 100% academy. It's not really testing for a Championship side.

Hull was mainly young lads with cameos from the big boys, which was better i suppose.

Hunslet will gives us chance to try most players without travelling far.

York v Batley will be good indicator for both sides. Last year's finalist V a contender.

Huddersfield last year was full strength 

hull was same in 2020 

castleford looking at their squad for Sunday against Keighley would be 75/25 with a decent squad 

having watched hull kr tonight they went 75/25 with kids

I take your point regarding Hull and Giants but it isn't really typical of the majority of past friendly matches.

Everyone would love to see a full strength Saints or Rhinos at Mount but you also need to be realistic of how game plans can pan out against these type of sides in a friendly. It'd be a great tester but you'd probably struggle to try out those new training ground pieces.

I'd be more interested in drawing them in the Chaenge Cup where it would be meaningful.
