Whatever side of the debate you sit on, it’s clear there is a genuine concern and issue with ticket pricing.
I attended as much as I can only missed two away games so far. But gota say it’s becoming a pain. Charging more on game day and no pay on gate turnstiles. https://t.co/kkE720gBa7

A fair point from a man doing so much to champion rugby league outside the heartlands?
Rugby League is seen to be owned by the North and not by people who play the game, support it or grow the game outside the north. This then leads to a lack of respect and weaker perception of the game. I see it all the time.
