I take back everything, great effort by fax. But my question is why can t they do it in the league they would be top 3.
My Humble Opinion Only - let the knockers begin.

Was a superb display. Whilst Fax never had a chance, to keep it so close in the 1st half and maintain a respectable result at the end took a huge effort. It was a magnificent defensive display and the fitness levels were impressive against the side running away at the top of Super League.
Loving the hypocrisy of some.

The "double header" needs knocking on the head or re-vamping.

Virtually ALL the Hull fans didn't stay behind (understandable as they lost and wanted to get off) so we had empty seats in full view of the camera which looked bad. It's more likely fans will turn up for the first match if playing second than vice versa, so at least allocate the seats opposite the camera to the 2nd match supporters - in particular it would have been great to have the noisy Fax crowd opposite than be hidden in the corner.

Rather have a different venue to Bolton. Keep the semis to RL grounds - Headingley being the prime example which would also attract a few thousand neutral Leeds fans, as would a Saints or Warrington venue - tidy grounds keeping the money within RL and better RL spectator venues.

Agreed, at least at most of the rugby league grounds they are close to or near the town centres, Bolton, whilst on the motorway route it’s not easily accessible without having to make the effort to get their so puts off the neutral supporter, as above.

I do believe the Beefeater next to the ground would like to keep it at Bolton as most fans were in there.
