Being unable to fulfill a home fixture is ridiculous. We own our ground not the ECB ffs.
Imo we should lose home advantage & it should be played at LSV


Leeds are fulfilling a fixture. The home club has to provide a venue, they have provided one in Featherstone.

Test cricket is a much bigger money-spinner than a Challenge Cup quarter final.
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.

Friday 1st June 7:35pm. Was hoping it would be a Sunday game so I could take the kids. Looks like we'll be watching it on TV now.

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

Was no chance of it being a Sunday game with St Helens v Hull FC & Warrington v Wigan.

That's the way I saw the switch of venue too
Why should we give home advantage away to Leigh when we can comfortably offer a sensible venue that can easily accommodate this fixture?

Elland Road isn't our home but we've played games there. Millwall isn't Wigan's home but they played a home fixture there the other year. Wembley isn't Spurs home ground, Widnes wasn't Saints real home ground when they played there for a season in 2011.

If we'd have decided to play the entire season at Odsal whilst the stadium work was going on would it be ok if we weren't playing this at Headingley.

Another cushy draw, RFL's pets etc.
Hopefully Wigan & Saints knocked out.

Yes as you say hopefully Leeds hull Warrington hudd/Catalan make the semis but for all your sarcasm it won't interest you so better focus on your magic weekend trophy :lol:

The switch to ER was a no brainer given the building works , & all the others listed were pre-agreed pre-arranged regular fixtures.
Also if we played a season away from Headingley so be it.
This is a cup qtr final drawn at random we are the home side & cant fulfill the draw.
Its the same with Wigan in the play offs why bother with a draw if you cant play at your home ground?

This is a a no brainier because of the building work, we've been using the cricket sides facilities this year. Where are the dressing rooms going to be if we can't use the cricket side and it's not just a place for players to change into kit you'll need proper medical/physio areas at this level now, can't just have them in the car park.

This will have been pre arranged you could tell by how quickly they announced it, Leeds will probably have know for a while but their was no need to announce it before because we could've easily been drawn away or even knocked out in previous round which would've left the issue non existent. Just because something wasn't made public doesn't mean it wasn't in the pipeline

We can fulfill this game just like we could fulfill our league game vs HKR. The only difference is the fans got more notice but as I said until this weekend past their was no guarantee we'd even be in the Quarter Finals.
