It's Odsal for the Semi
Posted by southstander on June 07 2006 - 14:05:56

It's Odsal!

A massive round of applause for the Rugby Football League.

After what must have been a big temptation to send Rhinos and Giants supporters down the M62 to the KC Stadium, they have decided that the Powergen Challenge Cup Semi-Final between the two sides will be held at Odsal Stadium in Bradford.

Common sense has most certainly prevailed.

There were so many reasons why anything other than Odsal, almost equidistant for the two sets of supporters, would have been very wrong.

The impact of playing the game either at the JJB or the KC would have meant thousands of wasted miles travelled, thousands of gallons of fuel wasted, and thousands of hours sat unneccessarily in traffic. On ecological grounds, the RFL are to be congratulated.

Up until now the crowd figures for the Challenge Cup have been very disappointing, and with further to travel, fewer supporters would make the journey. The game at Odsal will maximise the attendance with distance not a factor in determining who will be there.

From a purely selfish point of view it is also a bonus. We have a great record in recent years at Odsal, and the memory of the 30-0 hammering of the old enemy is still very fresh in everyone elses mind. The ground also hold 26,019 so it is unlikely to be all-ticket, meaning less aggravation ordering tickets, and just being able to turn up on the day.

The game will be played on Sunday 30th July at 15:00 and be live on the BBC. Lets hope for a massive turnout from both clubs to show what this competition really means to us!

All in all, a great decision by the RFL - well done!
