Personally I don't see an issue.

We have to remember that all this building work going on has to be paid for to the tune of £35m how the hell Leeds and Yorkshire are going to ever pay that back I have no idea but a test match at Headingley I am sure will help Yorkshire fund some of their obligation.

In the meantime some sacrificises are going to have be made until the building work is complete and this is just one of them. In fact once the building work is complete sacrifices will have to be made as we are going to have to pay rent to fund the new stands.

Is going to Fev to play a Cup QF so much of a pain?? No it's not.

I would rather be going to Fev than be out of the cup as we nearly was on Fri or have travel back over M60/M62 again which is a total nightmare on a Fri night these days.

I'm only going off looking at the pitch when they played hull and it was poor


There's nothing wrong with the pitch at Fev. There were some unfortunate injuries to some Hull players that night, but they could have happened anywhere. I can't recall many other bad injuries there this season.

It can cut up towards the top end during prolonged wet spells, but otherwise there's nothing wrong with the playing surface.

For the ECB & YCC. Plus you're missing the point we have been drawn at Home that's Headingley not Fev simple as that.


You are 100% correct.

Re the money, I suspect GH has a finger (and most of an arm) in that pie for Leeds not to exercise the right to play on their own pitch. Just a hunch.

Doesn't the club still own the Headingley Lodge and "Headingley Experience"? That's some good corporate revenue right there on Test Match days.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

It's GH's usual clever technique to distract punters from the pending thrashing on Saturday. 10 in a row. Leeds by plenty.

Have you ever won when it counts though? You know like the countless grand finals and challenge cup finals we’ve won.

Even if Cas win its not 10 in a row unless you for some strange reason choose to forget about the GF.
