To be fair, it is a decent venue. It could have been a lot worse. On the downside, we will no doubt end up with a third fixture against Leigh who will be strong favourites against us.

It is a crap venue for a two day event. nothing near by for fans and who the hell would book a long weekend there.

It’s also bad for parking, you struggle to find a parking place for an ordinary league match, where would all the extra supporters park?

Probably be a smaller gate than a Leeds home crowd to be fair.

But with a Leeds home game, a lot of the supporters will walk or get a bus to the match, but with the Big Bash, nearly everyone will be coming from outside Leeds, meaning a lot more traffic and everyone trying to find somewhere to park.

@farnworth-viking  Headingley has  hosted numerous games without Leeds being involved. There was 20 odd thousand there when we played Cas in the play off final.I still say it's a boring choice of venue, though.

Does anyone go for the full weekend nowadays for these events.

 

I can barely stomach 80 mins of our game, never mind anybody else’s.

We don't agree much but on this we do, maybe Cornwall would be a good shout.

Is there a decent ground in Cornwall ? I mean an actual stadium, not a RU pitch.
