By all accounts is seems that Magic Weekend is destined for Elland Road, 17th & 18th August.
What a poor decision

Looking at the fixtures it will be empty on the Sunday.

Whilst I might agree that Leeds and Elland Road in particular is a poor choice, from a 'preaching to the converted' POV I was getting a bit bored with Newcastle and it was becoming a bit of a chore and 'old hat IMO.

I was ready for somewhere new Nottingham Leicester Birmingham Coventry Sheffield Bristol

Newcastle is not the metropolis that it likes to think it is and there's not great connectivity by train (to/from MCR in my case) depending when your game was scheduled. Before I get pulled up I understand that towns on my alternative list might not be as big or easier to get to than Newcastle, it was the year on year and accommodation pricing that was starting to grind my gears.

Looks like the RFL have chosen Elland Road as a spoiler tactic.

The Magic Weekend will be poorly attended there and this will be used as justification for its removal from the Super League schedule.

Yes they do, and that`s why the RFL have chosen Elland Road to host the event.

They are basically planning to fail, and for once their plan will work out.

True, won’t be any Saints fans there. They are all in Rhyl that time of year.

We have Leeds in Leeds. Magic.
To be honest I don't like magic weekend and wouldn't miss it.

I believe Sky want MW and as they provide the money, will get what they want. Newcastle FC new owners didn't want it there
