    Just out of interest, but why is Leigh Sports Village not available?

    5 weeks without a home game ! Gets relayed every year because 2 MUFC teams use it, looked perfect last sunday. Bet United pay for it, as they like wasting money
    Saints season ticket holders can attend this game for 15 if any of you are bored on that night...and want to watch some biff !

    This isn't meant as a dig at Leigh (or anyone else we know!), but once again we should be thankful that we don't have these sorts of problems.

    Call me picky, but I have a sneaking suspicion that that picture isn't actually our home stadium

    (although kudos for using the Langtree Park name, not the stupid one we have now)

    Yeah i was thinking the same thing. Still it gives teams in the lower leagues a day out at Wembley so i guess it's not a bad thing ( if people actually buy into it and turn up for it )

    Quite right, 40 years ago there was a chance of lower league clubs reaching the final of the numerous cups and having a big day out.. now there is slim to no chance (albeit I bet Halifax bring a fair few to Bolton).. so it is a great idea

    Any idea why Toronto and Toulouse are allowed to play in our leagues but not the 1895 cup? Without knowing why, it seems a strange decision.

    They're not full membership of the RFL, nor are Catalans

    I don't doubt what you are saying, but it still seems a strange decision, especially considering Cats play in CC. Thanks anyway.

    Is it because Toronto & Toulouse declined to enter the challenge cup, but the 2 Welsh clubs were not in the 1895 cup either.

    15 seems steep, even with a discount.

    Not really sure this is going to do much to “save” the attendance at Wembley.

    I would swap him for Lees. Richardson got a lot of flak for his tackling last season, Lees is even worse i think he needs a spell at Leigh.

    Agreed, but we are having to 'rent' Langtree Park (7k I've been told). Widnes are charging 20 for their game with Dewsbury, with NO discounts for season ticket holders. Probably be under a 1000 speccies on also...
