Doubt if it'll be a money spinner - do RFL assist with travel costs?

Had a feeling we would get Catalans away. Whatever money we get off the gate will go on travel costs  😡😡

Stitched up?? Really?  How?? Why??  No conspiracy theory we got a dreadful draw that will cost us instead of making money, that's all.  No stitching up about it

I agree with this stitched up talk is nonsense.
We didn’t cry stitch up when we had Dewsbury or Rochdale.
Embrace the trip.

Catalans averaging over 8k a game, hopefully with them expecting a win their fans will still come. Not a money maker but shouldn't be a loss either.

The exposure could really help the club

If shown live on BBC will we receive any money from that?

Disaster of a draw. Couldn’t have been worse. Long trip and hardly a big money spinner.

Only good thing is it could be a great weekend jolly on the drink down in the south of France 🇫🇷. Decent weather. Nice local beer and wine. Hopefully the club will arrange a chartered flight and hotel package and we get plenty down. Sounds tempting  ;)
