I don't think it will Swifty. The crowd will be massively affected. I reckon at least a thousand less than it would have been on another night.

Proper pain in the botty!

i meant the date for the game wont be changed, the crowd will sadly, but the RFL wont care.
been around here long time, thought would start posting...........

I've not seen any of Euro 2012 and I'm hoping to maintain that record. :DANCE:

I have. Quite enjoyed some of it. However, if it does come about that I have to make a choice, I shall be at Fax that evening.......
I'd just as soon not have to make that choice but hey ho..... the constraints of a broadcasting contract!!!!
Am I getting a bit daft about the immediate future of the England footy team here???

It's more interesting if we have a team in it - don't care whether that's England, Scotland, Wales or one of the Irelands.

What we usually get, of course, is Rockall. :DEPRESSED:

If the fixture clash were to prevail I reckon the crowd would be less than 1000 and the live tv audience wouldn't be much more with Sky Plus factored in. There must be some contingency plans for games postponed or abandoned, I dont know whether they would excercise that process though, and expecially not since England haven't even made the SF yet.
I can picture the scene at Red Hall...

Office staff : 'Nigel, theres a fixture clash for the Halifax Fev game, its going to hit spectators, tv and advertising very hard, what do you want us to do?'

Nige : 'What now? can't you see I'm on my Lunch'

Office staff : 'But Nigel its only half 9'

Nige : 'Get out, tell someone that gives a %^&, chomp, chomp, wafer thin my ar$5'

What?

WE are ENGLAND, I don't care about the OTHER NATIONS they are nowt to do with us I am English!
Do the jocks care if we win? No they would rather see us lose, same goes for the other 'home nations'.

Lets face the facts, there would be a huge drop in the attendance and not many will watch it on the TV when there is the England game on so what would be the point of having it on TV with hardly anybody watching it?

Only the diehard true RL fans of both clubs will bother to turn up, I reckon the crowd will be about 1200 if it is played when the potential England semi final game is on.

What about bringing the game forward 24 hours? If you prepare for that now it could be done.
Ignore this at your peril as the gate will be well down but have Fax got any say in the matter?

If you want to get your England fix prior to the match I'm sure there will be some fat knackers playing on the 5 a-side court before our game - plenty of carthorses, plenty of players who can't pass the ball.

Can't we just ask them to put the England kick-off back a bit?
