No games allowed on Thursday because every team played today, Monday.

Imagine playing Friday - Monday - Thursday!

Standard Easter calendar. It's already too much. Playing before Saturday would be ridiculous.

Remember Wigan's 1993/94 season ?

Mon 4 Apr Warrington Home 3:00 Won 21-14 19225
Thu 7 Apr Halifax Home 7:30 Won 38-00 14241
Sun 10 Apr Hull Kingston Rovers Away 3:15 Lost 10-21 3026
Tue 12 Apr Bradford Northern Away 7:30 Lost 06-10 14151
Fri 15 Apr Bradford Northern Home 7:30 Won 41-14 17971
Wed 20 Apr Castleford Home 7:30 Won 21-12 19896
Sun 24 Apr Oldham Away 7:00 Won 50-06 8015

7 games in 19 days - and still won 5 of them and the league. The Thursday/Sunday/Tuesday/Friday period in particular. Makes Friday/Monday/(Thursday/Friday) look a doddle in comparison.

Still I suppose the physical demands were a lot less then with players like Andy Platt, Kelvin Skerrett, McDermott, Betts and Cowie plus the athletes of today need more careful looking after than the likes of Offiah, Edwards, Botica and Connolly ever did.

Some amazing attendances there BTW.

91 Was Better (Dubbed Mission Impossible)

9 games in 21 days - Winning 8 and 1 x Draw
5 Games in 9 days - Winning 4 and 1 x Draw
4 Homes games in 7 days including :-
Thurs - Saints - 17580
Sunday - Cas - 14k
Tuesday - Widnes - Just short of 30k (And I swear if you counted the people climbing over the walls as the queues were that long it would have been 35k!)
Thurs - Bradford - over 19k

Saturday - Then had to go to Leeds and win last game 2DAYS Later as they'd brought it forward for TV!!!!
About 16k on and I reckon 6/7k of those were from Wigan (And it was Live on ITV IIRC)

Makes 1 x Easter Fri-Monday look like a Holiday!
As an Aside - What would the fans of today do having to pay for all those games!!!
They Moan now because they have to pay for a ticket for a CC or Play off game - with less fans travelling now so not paying for as many away games IMO

Some Salford fan said to me and I quote "You are by far and away the most Handsome & Knowledgeable Rugby League Fan in England!"

I thanked him and went on my Merry way!

Wow - that is incredible - both the number of games and attendances.

30,000 on a TUESDAY night game with Widnes. We can't get that at one day of the Magic weekend now. That just highlights how far our game has dropped in terms of interest level with the local population.

I'm going to record them for later.
