There has been a lot of debate recently about whether or not Boxing Day friendlies should be scrapped and we want to know your thoughts.
Five pre-season friendlies took place on Boxing Day in 2017. Below are the results:
Bradford Bulls 22-6 Halifax.
Dewsbury Rams 16-28 Batley Bulldogs.
Castleford Tigers 16-32 Featherstone Rovers.
Wakefield Trinity 10-17 Leeds Rhinos.
As you can see from the results, there were a couple of close games and a couple of not so close games. Is this because it’s the day after Christmas Day?
Other people on social media say that Boxing Day games should be scrapped to allow players to enjoy Christmas with their family and friends.
But others suggest that Boxing Day games should stay because it’s tradition and the games date back for years and years.
It seems as though more teams each year are taking Boxing Day games out of their diaries…
Do you think Boxing Day games should be scrapped or not? Let us know in the comments below.
