Why don’t you put away fans in the east stand and close the north stand, with the exception of St Helens. Personally I think this would create both a better atmosphere at the ground and give a much better appearance on tv.

Fair point - maybe include Warrington as an exception as well.

Maybe they should try this at Leeds at least then the away fans would have cover from the elements

I think it’s a fair point. I think we should change the whole set up to be honest and get the away fans in the first couple of blocks of the East Stand down towards the South Stand. Rugby league fans mix together in most other grounds so no need for segregation and it would lead to a massively increased atmosphere. Those first couple of blocks usually look like they’ve been given to junior rugby clubs playing at half time anyway.

When Saints or Wire are in town then clearly they’d need the North Stand but for all other teams why not.

They do occasionally - And Maybe they will in future for Leeds

No its crap when there is a full empty stand.

Better when the away fans are in one end

We don’t have students to inflate our attendance figures sadly.

No surprise that in terms of a home to away support ratio, Leeds away support is probably the worst in the league when you consider half the support is spending their money on beer pong and donner kebabs of a weekend.
