Twitter Talk: Fans have their say on Magic Weekend in France

Fans have had their say on whether France hosting Magic Weekend would be a good idea or not.

Super League chief executive Robert Elstone has revealed that taking Magic Weekend to France is on his radar.

But it won’t be happening in 2019, as Magic Weekend will be staged at Anfield – the home of Liverpool FC.

It has been hosted at Newcastle United’s St James’ Park for the previous four seasons but will now move away from the North East. Magic Weekend has also enjoyed three years at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium, three at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium and two at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield.

Elstone told the Mirror: “We might go somewhere where we think we can grow the competition, where there are ‘green-shoots’ and the promise of a Super League team in the near future.

“In my opinion, having experienced a great weekend in Perpignan earlier in the year, South West France could tick this box.”

Here are how fans reacted to the possibility on Twitter:
