Lol I’ve been waiting to do this, will we play Houghton or a runner at nine with the new rule changes. Lucky Leeds how much revenue will they get for hosting these fixtures, we know they need help to fund their new stadium. Will Sky really care if no supporters are there, as long as their sat dishes are selling. At least the Hull supporters won’t get drenched at the uncovered end.

Headingley will have been chosen as it has 2 complete sets of changing facilities at opposite ends of the ground meaning minimal to no contact between teams.

I don't buy into conspiracy theories, no.

Which other Yorkshire venue would you have chosen?

Hull KR, Cas and Wakey are all inadequate.

Hudds and FC don't own the ground so can't afford it.

That just leaves Leeds.

Hardly a conspiracy, just common sense.

West Hull have plenty of pitches, they need the cash, changing facilities al fresco, and a beer garden no problem, there’s no supporters allowed so isn’t a field all we need. :D

I'm sure it will have been the SMC's decision, can't see them wanting 3 games over a weekend when city are "playing" 3 games a week as well, and who can blame them.

Doncaster would have been ideal for the two Hull clubs and Castleford
I wasnt saying its a conspiracy to choose Headingley just doubting that it was chosen because it had dressing rooms at each end of the ground.
In the current situation ask anyone in R/L which ground would have been the first to be chosen by the RFL and it would have been Headingley.
No conspiracy just fact.
Understand Huddersfield applied to host games even though they dont own the ground.
