Why not play them both at the same ground but 3 hours apart. That way the first crowd will have dispersed before the second game. More fans will get to see their team in action and the revenue will be twice what it would have been.

That did cross my mind too, but how feasible is that given the current situation?

Then you’ve got to make sure the grows has been completely emptied and there’s no stragglers and then avoid over crowding outside the ground.

It’d sort the ticket allocation issue out though, that’s for sure. I just can’t see beyond the fact that if you get a ticket, you’ll get to see three games regardless of how many fans from each club it’ll affect.


You've then also got to factor in the clean down and sanitising of all public areas and the seating which just wouldn't be feasible/possible in such a short turnaround.

Far better for the RFL to have had the semi final ties on two separate days and make an even of them both. Lets face it its probably a win win for the BBC as well as they at least have something worth watching on their station on two days.
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!

Games to be played at Leigh. :shock:

600 tickets per club.

The RFL are working with Government and other relevant authorities on the possibility of increasing the capacity, based around staggered entry of supporters of the six teams to the stadium.

Well we can't have the Lancashire clubs travelling too far. Terrible decision but not much changes with the RFL why not play at Elland Road, headingley, Huddersfield. 600 tickets is pointless, we take more than that to a standard away game over there. :lol:

:USTUPID: WTF so instead of actually picking a stadium central to all semi finalists such as Huddersfield with a large seated capacity meaning they could maximise ticket sales the RFL plump for a ground less than half an hour away from St's & Wire with half the capacity of the John Smith Stadium!!

Talk about underselling the sport, maybe Watts was right with his twitter comment re the RFL and the gift that keeps on giving. Its a joke for a semi final venue.

They'd even have been better just bunging Hetherington a few more bob and holding the semis and womens final at Headingley.

You gotta hand it to the RFL they really know how to market the sport................... :BEAT: :WALL:

It’s fair enough really, Saints & Wire have to travel for at least thirty minutes.

Pathetic decision! :DOH:

Huddersfield and Headingley would have offered more seating and at least been a central location for all clubs. Why bother working with the government and authorities in trying to improve the caoacity, when their were several other no brainer options.

Can’t wait to see the RFL’s justification on this one????

It will be embarrassing if any club fails to sell their ticket allocation.

So who gets the tickets if St Helens ladies,Castleford or Warrinton are in the final
Surely thats unfair on the other mens Semifinalists
Another RFL cock up
