The problem is, what if Bradford feel the same. We could both try and throw it, play the kids and it finishes 64-60.
Keep up....the reference is to our Sheffield game.....

Dunno what you're trying to say.


Put it this way. If we and Barrow and Halifax all appear in the 2nd semi-final of the 1895 but before the league game, it stands to reason one of us if not all will need to prioritise the Challenge Cup Semi first or later. So that means you play one semi-final on a Saturday and then the semi-final is on the Wednesday before or after. You have a simple choice then between playing the one or the one AND the other. Either full team or playing the young lads.

The only other way to do it, is to play both cup games before Halifax were due to play. Then at least you’ll know who is to play before despite playing either of them.

The weakness in your plan is it's already been decided that the Challenge Cup semis will be played on Saturday and, if a team is still in both comps, the 1895 semifinal will be the following Wednesday.

I said this earlier. :BEAT:

So I would imagine that, if Fax happened to lose the Challenge Cup semifinal, they'd be quite keen to win in the 1895 Cup.

Just my opinion, obviously.

For the avoidance of doubt I wrote that as a jolly jape between us adoring neighbours. Its not actually supposed to make sense which makes me qualified to work for the RFL I reckon.
