I agree. Not interested unless it's a legit WCC against the Storm. Leeds make a lot of money from these games and they split the cost with the NRL side. I imagine a sellout at elland road would probably entice the storm.

Genuine question: What is this match between Wigan and Hull in Aus? Anything to do with World Club? (I know it shouldn't be)

If Melbourne don't want to play just award us the trophy ;)

They owe us one after Melbourne got stripped of the 2010 one they won against us.

If this fixture is in Australia, Friday 16th February would be a perfect date to hold it in Melbourne. #justsaying

Apologies but can`t seem to copy the shortcut link from the Wigan site.
Basically it says Storm may not be prepared to travel to Leeds for the game.
They already have a testimonial arranged with NQC back end of Feb.
GH says Leeds would be prepared to go over there even though we have already booked ER.
Thoughts?

I know garys got pound signs in his eyes but id rather not bother.
Melbourne have tarnished what little credibility the trophy had with there current stance. If theyd rather play a friendly then fair enough, but id rather not drag the squad half way round the world at the start of the season to play a team that cant be arsed with it.

If the NRL Champions aren't bothered then 100% agree.

I agree. Why bother screwing up our season?
Then again we only start playing in September so would get the jet lag well and truly out of the way!
On the other hand does that mean Wigan retain the trophy indefinitely?
