Neutral venues are an issue for me considering the season has already started.

Using ourselves as an example....

We played Castleford away. Small pitch, vocal crowd, crap facilities, horrible place to go, massive advantage to them.

Leeds for example will play them at a neutral venue where Cas lose that advantage. It might only sound like a little thing but it instantly changes the whole dynamic and as I said on another post the integrity of the competition goes out the window.

Some sides have already travelled to France and had the issues that causes, others will play them over here where being away from friends, family, home comforts, I wouldn't be surprised to see them take some hidings.

It just doesn't feel right to me for it to come back in any form other than games at home grounds (not sure why we can't play at home but Latics can) with crowds. If that can't happen then for me it's a sign that it shouldn't be coming back.


I said that to my dad, Cas are losing out more than us though as that is a fortress, still its the same as the Aussies and they have coped ok and enjoyed the return

Cas lose out massively yeah, as do Leeds without the South Stand officials. Although they look as though they'll be playing at home in the first game even if they are in the away dressing room.

Aussie clubs tend to share grounds and don't get the sort of vociferous support that we get. Canberra and the Warriors have had it worse off really although from the next round they'll be back at home.

Would Leeds not be playing at one of the other venues? If not that’s a farce

Well apparently the first 3 games are at Headingley and one of them is Huddersfield v Leeds. Again, not sure why Huddersfield can't play at home when Huddersfield Town manage to.

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

unfortunately Leeds are 2 games behind most so need to catch up . I am sure you are not that worried about the Rhinos .

What other stadiums are available that weekend that have the required facilities to be able to follow the social distancing/covid rules?
Also, there could be higher costs to play the games somewhere else(?)
