will we get a game at home this season if Cas win ? as last year they said because Wire had won the LLS they would get the game, if Cas win the GF they have won both so the only other winners this season is us with the CC so should we now not get a game in the series even if only two teams travel over ? or will there be another excuse from the RFL :roll:

Reports I have seen have said that if Castleford win both, Leeds would be given the second spot as Grand Final runners up.

I think we'd say we dont want it due to our Australia tour commitments. The club would have to pay out £150k to host it, add in the cost of renting the KCOM, and player jetlag from playing the week after coming home and it'd be too much disruption this time round.

The WCC is nothing to do with the Challenge Cup, it is a league competition therefore Leeds would be given any subsequent place. If a third team come over then as we finished 3rd, we would be asked but it's a big commitment financially and with the KCOM not being ours, I think we would end up out of pocket because the Allams would shaft us big time.

Not sure it will go ahead seeing as how FC and Wigan are playing the Super League game and both doing warm up matches over there???? plus Melbourne knocked it back last season to concentrate on NRL, think this will be the norm and the comp will die a natural death, it’s the Super League clubs that put credance to it.

I am certain Melbourne will be involved being the Premiership winners, with a big question mark over the Cowboys. Bennett has offered his Brisbane team to fill in if a second side is needed.

If the two teams are Cas and Leeds where will the games be played?
Both grounds will only have around 12,000 capacity. With the aussie clubs demanding around £150K each I don't see how the games can be staged at home.
I can't see Leeds United letting two games be played there.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Leeds United are at home on the 24th February, Leeds have suggested they'll play there so it'll have to be the Sunday as they won't want a game being played on the pitch before hand

I sort of agree with you but I would love to see a game at the KC but as other posters have said think they would shaft us and we would end up out of pocket it sounds like we will not be in the mix anyway it maybe a good thing this time
