Boxing day tradition.

Cant expect much quality half way through the pre-season.
Early sight to new signings and maybe a new style of play...

Not too far away in Leeds, decent stadium..
Long live the festive friendly

To be honest I will be looking forward to seeing the stadium this year, I didn't make it to Leeds last year.

You asked a question I've responded, yes it is a friendly with at least two more to follow, none will be a full blooded game due to them being 'warm up' games as the RFL likes to call them.

I will paraphrase my earlier response,rather than asking a bland question which strongly indicates that you are personally bored with the Boxing Day fixture which you are rightly entitled to have that view would it not add to the topic if you put forward some alternatives or possibly do you just support dropping the game altogether. What views do you have on the HKR anf Giants 'warm up' games.

Can you clarify 'slightly'

It’s my birthday as well so what’s not to like about it :DRUNK: like Wrencat says, getting away spoils it a bit.

Fair comment, I agree it's good to get out of the house on Boxing Day and kills a few hours but it just seems to be consistently a very slow, relaxed game.

Fingers crossed this year will be different.


Considering this is a per season money spinner for both clubs, what sort of game do you expect.
There have been some decent games over the years and this one will very likely be the best "event" of our pre season.

Always enjoy the Fev "friendly" too, after these 2, it's just a case of waiting for the season to begin and hoping like hell that we dont pick up any injuries.

I really dont see what more you could want from a "nothing" game

The slow escape from Headingley can be enjoyable, when we've beaten them :D
Mind you, when you've had a few pints, the last thing you want, when you reach a certain age, is to be stuck in traffic. :lol:
