Nobody has mention it yet but I prefer the 6pm Saturday matches , Ideal for everyone plenty of time to get yourself ready plenty of time to get to the appropriate match home and away and the 6pm kick off again gives everyone time to get home before midnight and still go for a drink at your local,

I like the atmosphere of Friday night games but when it comes to Sunday I also wish there was a game just to get away from the kids really the fact that my club is supposed to play on a Sunday but due to sky have only had 3/4 games makes it irrelevant anyway I don’t buy the argument that Fridays stop families going either

It may not stop some families attending but no kids up to 10 years of age should be out late they need to be home in bed getting the sleep their body’s require at that age. OK that’s my personal opinion but there are a few of us about that think that way. Early evening Saturdays or Sundays IMO suites the most people. I think all games should be played same time every week year in year out (except TV games) so every one knows & it becomes ingrained in the mind that (insert the time you like) is rugby league time & stick to it.

That’s the thing now tv rules which is why even though we’re down to play on a Sunday we will only play 4/15 games this season then

Not strictly true TV only say which games they are showing, there is no reason why super league/RFL & championship can’t rule that all other games are played Sunday at 1500 or Saturday early evening ie 1600- or 1800 start, I am sure who ever has the TV rights would want no other games on when they showed live games? It is the clubs that insist on Friday night 2000 kick off’s.

It is true we’re playing 4/15 games on a Sunday because the other 11 are on tv

Clubs should know when there own fans are most likely to attend and schedule the games accordingly. If you are aiming a game at new/young fans, what are they looking for? If you want the cororate dollar or the traditional fan, what then?

They could even adjust the time/day of kickoffs to take into account the time of year/local factors to increase crowds. If you have a game at an unusual time, market it as such and make it a positive not a negative!

If being moved for Tv schedules costs a club a certain amount of money, then it should take that into negotiations for the new Tv deal, and then the RFL negotiators know what is a good deal/what conditions to put in the contract.

Seems pretty basic but are clubs doing this?
“You are playing a game of football this afternoon but more than that you are playing for England, and more even than that, you are playing for right versus wrong. You will win because you have to win. Don’t forget that message from home. England expects every one of you to do his duty.”

There are lots of kids playing RL on a Sunday morning/afternoon and it doesn’t leave much time to get to the games . Saturday night games could work
