    Might be an idea to hold fire on those flights and travel arrangements.

    They really are not arsed about the game. It's at best a trial game for them. Their attitude and arrogance is sickening.

    If that is their attitude, we should walk away.

    Maybe we can get the NRL to pay us 100,000 for playing.

    PS Sorry $100,000 Australian.

    There's flights from around 800-900 from Heathrow via America, does take 30-31 hours instead of the 23-24 usually but a lot of money saved.

    Hotels aren't too bad, in Sydney can get an alright hotel for about 50pp per night.

    Penrith slightly dearer but nothing bad. We're doing 2 nights in Sydney and 2 in Penrith.

    I reckon you can do a week from Heathrow for around 1300 based on 2 sharing if people are looking for the most cost effective way.
    I hope you have not underestimated jet lag--good luck in the classroom when you return.
    Bringing it all back home.

    The articles have Brian Fletcher (Panthers CEO) talking about missing out on an apparent big earning trial game against Parra. They're literally playing the game the week before.

    Then you go on the Panthers website and it's got an article talking about it going ahead, with the quote

    On behalf of all at Panthers, we look forward to welcoming St Helens to BlueBet Stadium in February.

    haha in 2017 when I went for the WC for 2 weeks it absolutely killed me when I got back, I'm hoping shorter time will mean it's not as bad but there's no logic to that other than hope....

    I hope that they are already doing that to pay for all the expenses incurred in travelling, hotels etc., it's only what Saint, Wigan Leeds and, the RFL and Sky have had to do in the past for visiting Australian teams Saints must hope to gain a small profit from it to cover the loss of a small amount of income from a home preseason friendly which presumably wiĺl not take place

    You would think that we would be paid a similar amount to that paid to Aussie clubs to come here, which according to reports was much more than 100K.

    I was thinking, jokingly, of pure prize money/profit. I presume the considerable costs will be covered anyway.

    I nearly threw up in the taxi back from the airport when I landed after 3 weeks there in 2017, felt awful for a day. But I'm a soft arse with that kind of thing so hope you manage okay.
