Get stuck into the sh!thouses, like we did in the 1895 semi-final. Let's see what bang Degsy has got for his buck.

Nothing to lose, we will be underdogs on the day. If we turn them over then fantastic, if we don't we can concentrate on the league.

Some good teams going out in that round, games like Leythers v you mob, 'Fax hosting Fev, and Kear's Crew heading to the Broncos.

We have a good chance of progressing, as we're at home to North Wales, with the winners of that, welcoming Hunslet or Siddal. Fingers crossed!

Spelly.

Confirmed as the Monday: 3 weeks in a row on a Monday.

Suppose in one respect it doesn't clash with the League Cup Final and also those who were not going to travel can watch it now.

Will hit the travelling crowd though.

It was never going to be on the Sunday, there’s a football game already at LSV. 

But a Monday night is a joke. 3 consecutive games on a Monday is nonsense, especially the Leigh game with them being full time and us part time. Clearly gives them an advantage.

Leigh, Dewsbury, Newcastle and Sheffield all away on a Monday night- so much for a family sport.

I’m sure that the numpties in the RFL will point out that Monday games on TV will bring in a wider audience, although I personally think it’s at the expense of supporters actually going to a game.

Monday for Leigh is better - it could have been Saturday giving us less turnaround time

from what I have watched of Leigh with their ex Widnes crew, they don’t appear to be a super league club in waiting

degsie will probably sack them all in a couple of months !

Think our attitude is right now and with no injuries in the halves, we will go well

onwards and upwards

Watched the leigh v Bradford game last night and Bulls were woeful. No ideas at all near the leigh line and really with Dec Pattern a one man team. Leigh were much fitter and with Mellor bossing them around the field looked good at times but I would hope we will give them a better game. Time will tell

I've said numerous times that the away fan isn't relevant in rugby league, especially in the Championship.  They don't make any significant difference as generally, RL fans don't travel in big numbers to away games.  

The duty is to showcase the best games in the new TV, and Leigh v Widnes is the tie of the round.  Don't really understand the fume.

Plenty will be able to go now it's Monday, it works both ways.

You may of said it but your talking wotsits for some clubs its survival. Why do you think all the clubs love Widnes in the championship.

I’m an ancient supporter VM and free to go out at night, but my grandson (and maybe other youngsters too) aren’t able to go to night matches.

No doubt he’ll watch it on TV but is that what the game is all about, staying at home and watching RL on the tele? Please give some thought to the wider future of our game.

There will be less travelling to Dewsbury and Leigh than there otherwise would be, that's a simple fact.

Cup matches are less attended now in the early rounds than previously anyway.

Also as a TV viewer, you get more into it seeing a good crowd and atmosphere: 800 on a Monday at Dewsbury or Sheffield isn't going to do it for you.
