Just watching this at the moment
and am totally convinced that this is a great opportunity to take on the road once or twice a year.

How about targeting the Midlands with this brand.

Birmingham or Coventry are not too far away and could really assist Coventry Bears to grow the game in the area.

Replace Magic Weekend with a 9s tournament with 4 invited teams IMO.

9's and 7's are both great to watch but, neither come close to watching your own side on a Friday night (or Sunday afternoon).
Maybe there is a market for it but, honestly, how many people would pay and travel to watch a club 9's competition.

We always used to go to the Wigan 7's back in the day but, whilst it's good fun, I dont see it as a serious thing.

However, if they ran a few games prior to the Challenge Cup final (assuming it was possible), it could help with crowds, both in terms of numbers and getting them into the stadium for longer ?

It's like a poor mans RL version 20/20 . Cant imagine the crowds would be replicated like magic weekend generally is.

That's not to say I wouldn't be interested in it but not to replace magic.
