  1. Good job IMG are getting rid of this malarky. HKR will take a good few as usual, but then they’ll all go for a jolly in Newcastle afterwards. Wigan don’t travel, Catalans won’t bring any, maybe the Saints fans will stay around. As for the rest, Hull will have a few there but last thing on a Sunday is a killer as the travel home is prohibitive.
    So, let’s see Super League say it’s been a success again. My Arse!
