‘Neither team had anything to play for’
I don’t get this. Trinity are trying to get 5th spot and Cas we’re playing to secure 3rd. Surely that’s something to play for.

So what ? 3rd or 4th. A trip to Wigan or a trip to saints. We've known realistically for 6 weeks that's what lays ahead for us, either way it's a tough away semi final, both of similar difficulties and the only game of any meaning to it. Wakefield have known in that time 5th is the best they can finish where their race is then finished.

Every minute does not matter at all. We've played Wakefield 3 times this year and on each occasion it's been p1ss wet through and each time it's been on tv. Rather then make the trip I've decided to justify staying home and watch it on sky that I pay 70 quid a month for. This is only a recent mind set for myself but the games just don't matter.


Wigan away though on October 5th, does matter.

So basically your saying Castleford and Wakefield fans are glory hunters who only go to games that matter and the local derby isn't appealing to them?.

No. Because there was still 7.5k there which is a respectable crowd for a nothing game which was televised for our 3rd clash together this season .

Put some jeapody on the line, or it not be televised and you'd be looking at 9.5k-10k.

By that logic there might be what? 3 or 4 meaningful games in a season?
Is that what you think?

Yes pretty much. Certainly under the 'super 8s' structure.

Who gives a s*** what the crowd is, it wasn't a very good game but Cas scored some good tries. Both teams are playing some entertaining rugby and both teams are making a profit without a sugardaddy and things are looking up however some of the morons on this forum just cannot see that.

*rlfans mode on* 7,800 attendance is appaling for a local derby for a team who are in the semi's and one who aspire to be one , mind you there were only 7,400 for the earlier meeting between the teams so clearly neither set of fans care about this game or they are both actually quite poorly supported, toronto get more than that in the Championship. *rlfans mode off



more than turned up when the cowbell was in town :lol: :lol:
